Re: Car is bricked!

I just received the same $5.99 12V meter from Amazon that you bought, and it's great! Since it was sold by another vendor, there was no sales tax, yet it still qualified for free, two-day Amazon Prime shipping. It's actually smaller than it appears in the picture (actually, a good thing), and it loo...

Re: FFE with aftermarket wheels - could you post pics?

Those are the stock ST rims and tires. They were noticably heavier than the stock rim/tire combo. Ride and noise wasn't that much different but the range suffered horribly. I'm talking 25% loss horrible. Probably a combo of the weight and stickyness of the tires. The car was also much slower off th...

Re: FFE with aftermarket wheels - could you post pics?

Have you looked into Plasti-Dipping your current rims? I have thought about doing it to my factory wheels and leaving the upper 5 spokes silver, darkening the rest. Yeah, I was hell-bent on Plasti-Dipping my FFE's stock wheels as soon as possible. However, when I looked under the car to determine t...

Re: Fine for driving in HOV lane without CAV decal is $238.

That's so confusing!! When we were in Cali a few years ago on vacation we stayed out of the HOV lanes even though we were always 4 ppl in the car just because the signage was so confusing... Yes, it's idiotically confusing. However, I should clarify that I'm mixing up conventional toll roads with s...

Re: FFE with aftermarket wheels - could you post pics?

I'm not a huge fan of the factory wheels either. They look too "electric." I'd love a set of Focus Titanium five-spokes (powder-coated black), but they're really expensive. Plus, they're 18s, not 17s, so I'd have to spring for new tires also. Someday, I may just go ahead and buy a set. I was looking...

Re: Recommendations for warranty extensions

"According to Nissan North American Director of EVs, Mark Perry . . . 'No battery warranty requirement/regulations from CARB for ZEV . . . Nothing for the air resources board to regulate.'" --from GM-Volt.com.

Re: Recommendations for warranty extensions

Remember than the battery & EV drivertrain are covered for 8 yrs/100k miles (or 10/150 in CARB states). Although California is a CARB state, as far as I could tell, only PZEVs, and not full-battery electrics, qualify for the CARB 10/150 battery/drivetrain warranty coverage. We're only covered for 8...

Re: Fine for driving in an HOV lane without a CAV decal is $

At least I can drive in [California] HOV lanes with passengers in the car, right? In the greater Los Angeles area, the normal minimum is 2+ on the 105/110 FasTrak lanes; however, Metro has the authority to increase the minimum occupancy to 3+ on these lanes (indicated by electronic signage when in ...

Re: CVC 21655.9(b) fine for driving without CAV stickers: $2

The number of white clean-air vehicle (CAV) decals issued to ZEVs and near-ZEVs by the state of California is unlimited. Green CAV stickers are issued for AT-PZEVs (e.g., Prius plug-ins, Volts, etc.), and are limited to only an additional 15,000 stickers for 2014-15. Since the original issue of 55,0...
