Re: iMiEV - any good?

if so, 4Springs, did your friend buy it? and if so, how much if you dont mind my asking..

thanks

I tested t...

iMiev Recall notice

Would it be safer to disable it until it is replaced? HELL NO...    its recalled because it might fail 1% of the time, or cause injury ,   so if you ever need it, its still got a 99% or more chance of working safely, but if you disconnect it, it has a 100% change of failure and causing injury.
