    I like EVs...but from a purely financial angle they still don't make sense when compared to a Mirage. Some of these first-generation EVs (like the Leaf) have had some battery issues and I'm not sure...

    Thanks for posing that. I'm pretty sure you are the first person to send in a sample of CVT fluid for analysis. So at least we have some sort of baseline to compare with going forward.

    Are you willing to change your tire size slightly?

    Falken Sincera SN250 tires are available in a 175-65-14 and will last almost twice as long as the Quatracs for roughly the same cost.

    If you end up buying one, be sure to report back where you got it and verify what the part number is. You probably won't be the last person to break one of these things!
