Re: Battery Health Check procedure - correct method?

I'm afraid all these either/or warranties are - whichever comes first. So you've only got until next March for a 2016 car, irrespective of the mileage. My 2014 car with a similar mileage to the ones you are looking at only had a 5 year battery warranty but I am still getting about 22 miles actual r...

Re: Battery Health Check procedure - correct method?

Thanks very much everyone - it’s quite reassuring to see that I shouldn’t get too hung up on the battery range reading / guessometer! Littlescrote - your term paralysis by analysis is a great bang on description! I really hope the battery isn’t going to need replacing after 8 years though as I’d lik...

Re: Battery Health Check procedure - correct method?

Thanks a lot Outlander660. It does help to know what readings other people are getting in summer and winter, even if your car sounds a bit younger than this one.

Re: Battery Health Check procedure - correct method?

I forgot to add - in November another MD service dept. told me that the way to get the average mileage range would be to fully charge the car by plugging in using normal charge at 13 amp mains. Then drive the car around to decrease the battery/range. Then repeat this - full charge and driving around...

Re: Battery Health Check procedure - correct method?

Many thanks GD. :) We are in London and the car is in Cheshire, so I'm trying to head off any potential problems before payment and collection as it's so far to return the car if anything goes wrong. (FYI the only other car I've found in the same year, mileage, spec and colour I want is 1k dearer in...

MMCS error? Pre-heating timer/Remote Climate Control.

I wanted a battery health check done on a 2016 GX4hs before purchase from a car supermarket dealer (SD). Car has full Mitsubishi Dealer (MD) service history and 41k miles on clock. I also asked if the MD could take a look at the MMCS computer to resolve why the SD couldn’t turn off a pre-heating tim...

Battery Health Check procedure - correct method?

Am v. confused - your experience would be much appreciated - I have spoken to several Mitsubishi Dealers (MD’s) in the UK but all have different responses. Please can someone inform me correctly? I wanted a battery health check done on a 2016 GX4hs before purchase from a car supermarket dealer (SD)....

Re: Battery range in Winter

Latest update - car dealer has said they will take it into a Mitsubishi dealer that has the next available diagnostics date. So we now have to wait at least a couple of weeks to find out why the MMCS timer isn't turning off all 7 days, etc. Please do let me know if anyone knows about this? I'm afrai...

Re: Battery range in Winter

Thank you for the replies folks, the car sales dealer just called me to say he drove it around the forecourt a bit and then the battery range went up to 17 miles. But he says he can't turn off the heater timer on the MMCS - he's had technicians and himself trying to figure out for two hours this mor...

Battery range in Winter

Still not managed to collect 2nd hand PHEV due to lockdown/getting Covid but car dealer (non Mitsubishi) said battery range was only reading 11 miles when fully charged? It’s a March 2016 PHEV GX4hs, 41k miles. I‘ve asked him to check that the heater and timer for heater are switched off on the MMCS...
