That's no good. Have you compared your correspondence and PHEV model with Jimbob as he recently had the opposite outcome?

Re: PHEV Loss of Km Range with Battery.

Just wondering if there has been any more success in 2021. I've actually heard the opposite, there is an Australian Facebook page where a guy is having no luck getting his battery replaced, so it looks like MMAL have changed their tune since I had mine done. the 'Battery current capacity' is 27.3Ah...

Re: PHEV Loss of Km Range with Battery.

But, the average life expectancy of most cars is close to 20 years and even then the fuel consumption and features should be close to new. If the Outlander PHEV only has a useful life of 5 years an a PHEV and then becomes just a HEV the extra weight of he battery now increases fuel consumption. It ...

Re: PHEV Loss of Km Range with Battery.

If anyone wants to comment I'd love to hear whether you think this is normal wear and if it is not whether there is any chance of getting Mistsubishi to replace the battery. Mitsubishi (usually referred to as MMAL) will try to convince you that you have normal degradation, however they "accidently"...

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: 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 ...
