OK!

Been recalled again, and had the latest software installed.

This time everything is excellent.

From pressing the on button to "Ready" is now taking just over one second. :)

The dealer has advised that they've had more advice from Mitsubishi...

I've been told to expect another recall in the near future regarding the WiFi module/software.

:shock:

I have considered copying out the actual content, you know the bits between all the DANGER! WARNING! PANIC! WE'RE ALL GOING TO DIE! parts...

I wonder if I could get the whole useful part of the manual down to both sides of an A4 page?

:lol:

Well I'm joining the club. Picked up an ex demo 2014 PHEV with only 3500 on the clock, and almost four years of warranty left for $33K. Should arrive in a week and the boss has said I can charge it at work 8-). Just gotta get a towbar fitted and I'm set. Anyone here not use dealer servicing and going with an independent? I've heard less than stellar things about the one Mitsu dealer in Hobart.

Yay! Welcome aboard.

If you're talking about the tow-bar fitting, then yes, I had mine done by Peddars, and they did an excellent job.

If you're talking general servicing, I strongly recommend that you stay with a Mitsubishi dealer.

The car is quite unique, and needs someone with access to Mitsubishi.

It's an interesting discussion. Having asked Mitsubishi they are comfortable with a registered non dealer mechanic doing the servicing provided they use genuine parts. Given the ICE is very simple (1 gear, limited rev range, no timing belt etc) that part of the servicing should be a doddle. The EV side of the equation is obviously more specialized, but then again electric motors are very simple units and generally don't require much servicing. Other than that, it comes down to the computer control of the vehicle which means having the right diagnostics and service information. So you would think that with the right mechanic it should be doable, hence why I was wondering if anyone has gone that way.
