I'm hesitating between this and a Niro PHEV.

I'm interested to see what Canadians think of the battery degradation issue reported elsewhere. We have colder climes, so our batteries should heat less. Still the idea of loosing 20% capacity over 5 years is not very appealing.

FWIW I own a Volt which has virtually no battery degradation described.

Thus far it seems most of the battery degradation seems software induced. It's frustrating that MMC is not yet stepping up to the plate to fix this issue.
But a work a round seems to be to have the battery software reset every 24000 km. This should avoid the reported degradation.
For me the Nero is no option and thus far the Outlander has delivered on it's promise for me
YMMV

Is that reset part of the routine maintenance schedule, or something that I have to specifically force the dealer to do?

Checking in From the Rocky Mountains of BC.

Bought a MY2019 Rally Red base model on Aug 1 2019. (In stock) Mostly drive around town so the EV is useful for me. No real long trips yet So far I have bought 35.00 of fuel and have about half of that left. :mrgreen: The ICE starts more on the colder mornings now. I would have gone 100% electric with a Chevy Bolt, but after a discussion with my wife she felt that something a bit bigger for the highway was better. (I think there may have been some range anxiety as well) No Hitch or anything as I don't tow anything.

I picked up the Vgate ODB2 unit for PHEV watchdog and I have watched lots of Andy and Greg's videos. My dealer didnt know about the triple procedure so I have put them in touch with North Bay Mitsubishi (Thanks Greg)
I'm quite happy that I'm not turning a V6 engine at the stop lights.

I'm less interested in saving money (DC fast chargers are still free in my area Shhh dont tell anyone) and more interested in doing more to help combat climate change. Its not much, but if we ALL did it Wow! :o

Umm ... I go up to Cranbrook all the time. Where is the mystery location of the free fast charger? Are you sure it's not just the Level 2, which takes about 3.5 hours for a full charge? I know there is one of those at the dealer and one at the shopping mall.

the Chargepoint app shows a free DC charger at the BC Hydro building, Cranbrook St N at 1st St. All other chargers shown in that app for Cranbrook are AC.

Cool. Sort of :) I didn't know about that location, but it is in the middle of an industrial area. I'd need to ask myself if it was worth 1/2 hour of my time to sit there for a charge ... probably not :) I will have to drive by just to see how close a meal spot it!

Mellobob,

The DC fast charger is located just off of Cranbrook Street behind Baker Street. You can find it with the BC Hydro app. Its about 7 minutes walk from some great pubs/Restaurants and the downtown street (Baker Street) in Cranbrook.
