Re: 2019 mitsubishi outlander - concerns/risks

We had our 2014 Outlander for 5 years. The only trouble we had was flat tyres We also had a flat tyre in our PHEV, first flat in about 30 years of driving, so the stock PHEV tyres are quite susceptible (tradies screw in our case). At the time of the puncture we still had the Mitsu roadside assist w...

Re: Used Outlander PHEV - concerns/risks

Can someone give a clarity about battery warranty in Australia? The current owner told me that it was 5 years warranty for 2015 model and later on they started doing 8 years warranty. So if we buy it and the battery is crap is there anything we can do? Apart from the published warranty, there is a ...

Re: Aftermarket iMiEV battery upgrade project

The real bad news is that when I took the car for short drive, I noticed that regeneration is not working anymore. You've probably considered this, but anyway - I have found with our iMiEV, however much more noticeable with the PHEV, that when the battery was near new and is fully charged, it can't...

Re: Used Outlander PHEV - concerns/risks

Questions: To preserve the battery long term, can the Outlander be set to stop charging at 80 or 90%? No, however there are top and bottom SOC buffers built into the battery charging to supposedly make this unnecessary. Has the battery changed from 12 to 13.8kWh at the same time as the 2.0 to 2.4L ...

Re: PHEV Loss of Km Range with Battery.

Is there any new information on the battery issue that I should factor into my buying decision?

In general, passively cooled batteries like the PHEV are never going to last as long as a...

warranty goes with the vehicle....so there’s a possibility of making a claim for another battery. Seems unlikely to me that Mitzu do this willingly, and I’ve learned that I’d need a copy of the old promise that they have since removed evidence of, the ‘no lower than 80% in eight years’.

Sounds like a PHEV would fit your requirements quite well. Remember this is 10 year old tech, and soon will be superseded by fully electric BEV, just waiting for the price to come down.
