Re: I-MiEVs for sale

The proprietary code and VIN locked components are a bit of a worry. I agree the ESVE thing is not a big issue, just nice to have the option.

ATM it seems more sensible to sink just $5K on a 10 y.o. Prius with the view to survive for 5 or 6 years until the EV market expands and matures some more.

Re: I-MiEVs for sale

The broken charger issues I am reading about are a bit of a worry, as is the Mitsubishi proprietary codes, VIN-locked parts, and forced 'stealership' repairs. I'm glad to hear that tyre replacement is not expensive :) Unlike battery-pack replacement. Is there any consensus on the average lifespan of...

Re: I-MiEVs for sale

Is there any warning light to say that the DC to DC charging is broken? I would not be happy if I bought a car only to find I'm up for a $4500 DC to DC charger replacement, even though I probably wouldn't really use that charging option very often?

Re: I-MiEVs for sale

OK, will be testing charging on the inspection tomorrow. I understand the 2010 model only has the trickle AC charger. Any other advantages in getting the 2012 model over the 2010 model other than it being 2 years 'newer'?
