Re: Should I buy a used phev or new (2023)?

Hmm... I'll chip in where I can... I haven't checked the overall usage on long trips, so can't comment on that. With my car, at speeds above 80km/h the car will automatically go into parallel mode, with the engine providing charge for the electric motors (and battery if space available) and directly...

Re: TPMS light going on and old software at non-Mitsubishi shops

Is it particularly hard to get to the dealer options to set this up?

If you have an MMCS unit it's just a three finger salute (top right, bottom right, bottom left IIRC)

(Note, this may vary between models, I've never seen this listed anywhere)

Re: Should I buy a used phev or new (2023)?

Thanks for the info. How has yours held up over the years - it's a 2014? Is the electric range still good? And how about fuel economy on long drives? That is my biggest concern because I keep reading how the Outlander uses a lot of gas once the battery runs out...but is there a way to getting decen...

Re: Should I buy a used phev or new (2023)?

Hmm... I bought mine when it was one year old for approximately $40k on road. (ex lease to Mitsubishi) I bought the top model because of the adaptive cruise control, which is marvelous for long drives in Australia. (When you activate it, it maintains the current distance and speed of the car in fron...

Re: 8 years of battery use and counting....

Hiya, Mine is of a similar vintage, but has done even less mileage! I noticed yesterday that it has just gone over 30k kilometres. As you'd expect, no sign of any battery issues. There was one forum member who did manage to kill their battery, towing a two-tonne trailer every working day, if I recal...

Re: Jump starting outlander phev 2016

HI MiG25,

I'm not sure where I read it, but somewhere...

I think that the wifi module turns off after two days of inactivity, and, I think that the daily 12V top up is related to the wifi module power consumption, but I'm not sure about either of these two things.

Re: Jump starting outlander phev 2016

Hi MiG25,

In my car's case, the 12V battery recharges at 2 PM each day, you can hear a faint regular beep when the car does this.

I believe the WIFI turns off if you don't connect to the car (or operate the car) for a period of time, it turns off after 2 days IIRC.

Re: TPMS OBD relearn?

I'd be interested to hear the method too...

I have after market, in-tyre sensors, and it would be interesting to see if I can integrate them into the car's systems.

(NB. I currently have a separate display on the dashboard, solar-powered/rechargeable, which displays tyre temperature and pressure).
