Re: Warranty issue, need help.

One owner pressed for a capacity-related warranty replacement and got it several years ago here, but that’s the only case I’m aware of (something like 40% of rated range at 2 years). Didn’t we all (new US i-MiEV owners) sign the waiver that the warranty doesn’t cover degradation? With EVBatMon, an O...

Re: My just purchased I-MIEV is not running well! Help needed.

Does your car shift into Park or B mode with some difficulty? You might need some lubricant on the shift lever at the motor/gearbox.

Re: Hatched a Tesla

I’ve only seen the S aero wheels once in the wild, so I’d say they weren’t popular. This was at a Drive Electric Week event several years ago. Honestly, with free Supercharging and a decent network even then, it was probably of very little benefit to most buyers, so they opted for looks or the freeb...

Re: Hatched a Tesla

I know I can drive more efficiently than Cruise control (especially with the phantom braking on Autopilot cars). My Model 3 lacks the range mode switch (I think it became the default behavior), but I did try some coasting this morning. Boy, does this car roll. For other efficiency improvements, I wo...

Re: Hatched a Tesla

All good points, and unlike my previous charging experience, we didn't wait for the car (at least any more than 5 minutes) to reach a set state of charge before departing. The first stop was unplug and go once we finished using the restrooms and stretching our legs. The second stop was about a 3 min...

Re: Hatched a Tesla

Thanks. We took a drive yesterday, and met two twin Model 3 at the Superchargers, so it's a good thing I didn't get it to stand out. :lol: The white interior would be a must in hot climates (the side windows have no infrared filtering, so the black seats get hot fast). It's not clear if non-FSD 2021...

Re: Hatched a Tesla

Still thinking about a name for the car. I have it narrowed down to: 1. Eagle 5 From Spaceballs, which Tesla draws influence from (Ludicrous Speed, Plaid) https://spaceballs.fandom.com/wiki/Eagle_5 2. Delta Flyer From Star Trek: Voyager https://memory-alpha.fandom.com/wiki/Delta_Flyer_type 3. Dark H...

Re: i-MiEVs Reviewed on Used Market

I have been watching many reviews on the i-Miev and most reviewers miss the point of the car I believe. It was never intended for long distant travel but was meant for urban life and short commutes to work. In this regard the car should shine as it is a 4 seater with adequate room to carry grocerie...

Re: Hatched a Tesla

Thanks. When I got the call that he was selling it, I initially passed, but the more research I did on the market and more the Bolt battery saga drags out, it became an offer almost too good to pass up. Supposedly, we have new battery packs coming starting this month from GM/LG. If that all pans out...

Re: Hatched a Tesla

I've known the previous owner for a few years now. He's taken extremely good care of the car, the only mark on it is curb rash on the right rear wheel from someone else he let drive. It's a 2018 with 12,500 miles, and has the Enhanced Autopilot, which includes Navigate on Autopilot and Smart Summon ...
