Re: A vs M in Climate Control

Is there a recommended place to purchase these filters outside a dealer? Might be up for doing this job myself.

Re: 12v/cigarette lighter port not turning off

I've been wondering the same thing. I have my phone charger plugged in to the port just underneath center dash between the driver and passenger seat. I've noticed that the light on the charger seems to always be on.

I have 2017 REX.

Re: BEV and a 500 Mi Trip. Should I do it?

Good question. I don't think I would do it.

I have a 2017 REX, and think that would make the trip a bit easier on the car / battery.

It's my understanding that fast charging (especially as much as you would need to do) is a bit hard on the batteries.

Just my 2 cents. Best of luck.

Re: best sunshade?

As per usual great info here folks. My wife bought me a generic sunshade she thought would work. She did her best in the purchase, but didn't have this great board to look at. We both agreed that it (the shade) didn't fit very well, so I'm looking forward to trying some of these option.

Re: Am radio...

For my AM listening pleasure I just get the AM station app on my iPhone and connect via bluetooth. Seems to work fine for me.

Re: $89k Munro i3 Tear-Down Cost Analysis on Sale: $10

Saw this video a while back before I bought an i3. To be honest, it was one of the things that convinced me to take a real hard look at the car.
Not that Murano says everything is great and glowing. But there was still enough to sell me on the car.

Re: Possible probleem?

I'd hard wire it unless you have something else to plug in occasionally, such as an air compressor or a welder. Really, in the event you had to swap it out, hard wiring is just a matter of a cover plate and three wire nuts. It's also less material, and potentially a more secure connection. But ulti...

Re: Possible probleem?

Well, we had a loose neutral in a outlet in the house (same circuit as the one in the garage) The smell coming from the garage is still a mystery. Had to drive about 75 miles yesterday and it drove and performed like new. No issues. I'm chalking this up to dodging a bullet. I appreciate all the grea...

Possible probleem?

So I'm a new (used 2017) I3 owner. I've had the car for about 2 1/2 months. LOVE THE CAR!! It seems since having the car, on occasion, when charging, we trip a breaker. Occasionaly, meaning a few times in the last 2 1/2 months. (I know that's probably too much) For the record I have an electrician c...
