Re: I-MiEV Main battery cell failure

A quick update After replacing the charger Paceway queried our charge cable as the car wouldn't charge. Once that cable was tested and proven to be good they did manage to charge the car fully. On the test drive by the dealer it stopped again. I think they are out of ideas and are wishing they had n...

Re: I-MiEV Main battery cell failure

After much testing it is now the on board charger that has failed. It was going to cost $4500 plus fitting until I reminded them that the charger had been replaced under recall about a year ago. They are now doing it under warranty. Time will tell if this lot of testing is any better than the last.

Re: I-MiEV Main battery cell failure

Unfortunately all we have is an email stating the warranty started from the first registration. I think we are going to be shafted. From memory our 15000km service was about $400. Lots to check and took all day. Our following service from Southside was about $250 but at least they gave me a checklis...

Re: I-MiEV Main battery cell failure

Mike When we bought ours we received an email outlining the dates which started from when the vehicle was first registered (prior to us). They did manage to mess that up by saying the battery warranty was 10 years and the drive train was five. We were told today that AHG won't honour the previous Pa...

Re: I-MiEV Main battery cell failure

Hi all After talking to Paceway today it seems the battery is now out of warranty even though we had problems before the 5 years from first registration was up and they have worked on it off and on for about 15 months under warranty. Any further works to try to fix the car is chargeable. $154 per ho...

Re: I-MiEV Main battery cell failure

Mike Thanks for that After they have tested the battery muliple times with the same " the battery is good " response, there is something else wrong. I am still of the opinion that it is a computer / software problem. There's not much else in the car and as I understand it, the battery has a five yea...

Re: I-MiEV Main battery cell failure

To add a bit to this discussion. We have a 2010 Imiev with about 55,000 on the clock. About 12 months ago our range dropped from about 110km to about 80. We took it back to Paceway, who over the next couple of months tested the battery several times. Each time we took it away to see if that had fixe...
