  4. Zoe service and repair costs

    Renault ZOE
    I thought it would be worth getting a better idea of maintenance costs for the Zoe What repairs/replacements have you had done? (if in-warranty, do you know how much it would have cost to do out of warranty?) How much have you paid for servicing at each annual interval?

    Any one had a sticky bonnet that won't open? Is it a common issue? Does it tend to be a reoccurring problem? Last night my wife came home from work in the Leaf 24 Gen 2 that has done over 70,000 and had run out of screen wash. So of I go to fill up the screen wash, however the bonnet won't...

  9. Post crash repair advice requested

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    Today, just 3 weeks into owning my 15 plate Leaf, someone crashed into the back of me while I was sitting at the lights. It was a heck of a thwack - enough to set off the airbags in the car that ran into me, stoving in the front end and emptying the contents of the radiator on the road. The...

    General Groupe PSA EV Discussion
    The one problem with these cars is that the brake pipes corrode due to lack of underseal. The parts are not expensive, but the whole battery pack has to be removed to change them. THIS IS A £600 JOB!! If you are looking to purchase an I-Miev I would advise asking if this has been done! The...

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    There is a short thread here, Spare Wheel, but no discussion or suggestions regarding the merits and disadvantages of equipping a new Leaf with a spare wheel, a space saving one, in particular. Is the Leaf puncture repair kit so good that carrying the extra weight of a spare outweighs its...

    Charging Locations
    I'll be going to Ikea in Milton Keynes in the next few weeks, but according to Zap-Map, their charge point has been offline since at least 3 Dec. I tried tweeting @ElecHighway but their response was a rather unhelpful "please check map on our website" which, as far as I can tell, simply says...
