Re: Canada Service Schedule 24k km costDoes

Can anyone in Canada advise what they paid for the 24000 km (service 3) service, which apparently takes overnight as it requires a full battery discharge and reset process? I am getting close and wondered what is a reasonable, or historical cost.

Re: Does North American Outlander EVSE support 240V

I bought the Duosida one from Amazon this past spring. It will run on either 125 volt (with adapter pigtail plug that is included) or on 240 volt. I haven't yet installed the 240 volt service, but will for this winter. I have run the unit against a std 15 amp 125 volt plug in the garage, with which ...

Re: Charging Options

to clairfy above comment, the onboard charger in the PHEV limits the maximum charge to around 3000 watts. Thus the maximum amp pull from the wall at 220 volt is about 16. There are multiple 220 volt chargers available, some rated at 16 amps (just enough to meet full max'm imput), some at 32 amps, wh...

Re: Extreme cold and battery

. I call this my "wife proof" external starter kit :)[/quote] Can I borrow that quote? I need it as well as she's already done exactly this on our 2019. Got into the car, supposedly started it, but then had a long telecon while still parked, ie hadn't moved. Killed it. Seriously, I"d not seen this i...

First Service and RECALL

Had the first service done today on my 2019 GT Canadian model. Dealer called it a Service type 1. Dealer also did a RECALL which was replacement of a relay of some type, and a larger cover for the new relay, vs original one. They also told me next service is Type 2 @ 16000 KM, the one after that a T...

Re: forgive an ignorant quesion

I find by far the largest impact to energy usage per KM, whether gas or electric driven, is the speed you are running. That is why even conventional non plug in hybrids usually (maybe always?) do better on city rating than hwy. Speed and elevation change for your trip have huge impacts. My approach ...

Canadian Service Schedule.- Actual Schedule

Can anyone tell me where to find the actual published service schedule in print, and/or post a copy of it. It is not in my 2019 Outlander PHEV Own3ers Manual. I have a 2019, bought in Sept '19, with about 7500 KM on it and want to know when I need to get service done, and what.

Re: Heater/air cond loads vs optimal 208/240 volt charger si

Thanks. I suspected as much but wanted to be sure. I thought maybe while charging, the heater would be operated directly bypassing the battery (and internal charge controller that limits to 16 amp input rate).

Heater/air cond loads vs optimal 208/240 volt charger size

I'm going to buy a 208/240 volt charger. Assuming car is fully charged in the morning, will going to a 32 amp vs 16 amp charger size be of benefit to avoid depleting the battery while running the heater or A/C? Or is the cars input limited to about the 2.93 KW regardless hence the larger charger is ...

208/240 volt charger suggestions for Canada (ie with CSA app

I'm going to go ahead and have 240 volt wired to my garage, to allow faster "top ups" than achievable with the OEM Type 1 included charger. Can anyone recommend an available solution, preferably with CSA electrical approval. I'm open to hardwired type but would prefer a plug in type so I can use on ...
