I would assume that they can, but unless you can present it to them as a problem they're probably not going to do anything about it. The brake condition is not ideal, but it's not a defect in my opinion.
My dealer recently contacted me with a "service reminder" so I replied to them asking them to schedule me for this service as a part of included maintenance. I have yet to hear back, but I will report here with the results, as local service departments absolutely should be able to perform this calibration easily, since it is relatively easy for us to perform with the correct OBD module and software. (This calibration should be performed at no charge, is my take, since this is effectively a warranty issue).
However Salty Peanuts has a very good point that they should be required to do it free as a recall, as often as needed*. The grabbiness doesn't bother me, but what if someone is tailgating me. I'm more likely to get hit. Also more likely to spill my hot coffee & have an unsafe reaction, although that might be a bit of a stretch to claim as unsafe.
* I don't yet know how long the recalibration works.
Everyone please file a complaint like Salty Peanuts did, since it says "If the agency receives similar reports from a number of people about the same product, this could indicate that a safety-related defect may exist that would warrant the opening of an investigation."
Recently I have been looking at used electric cars to buy. The 500e caught my eye.
I found one with an anomaly in the dashboard charging light display.
The right light (closest to the passenger side) stays on all the time. Solid red not blinking. The car was not at full charge, it was about...
I've read through previous very detailed posts about tires and performance... such good information but I am confused and overwhelmed with all! :-)
Just wondering... which tires should I purchase, and where? I live in San Diego..
Saw Pirelli Cinturados at Discount Tire $112/tire...
I been lurking on the forums for a little while researching on this car (most any EV at its price point anyway) i found the 500e was the most appealing for under 10K, second one was the eGolf but more then i wanted to spend and didnt offer anything in terms of range. Most everything...
Bought 2013 500e with two outstanding recalls:
S93 HV Degas VentPlugs
U69 FF HV Battery Software
All other recalls completed by former owners. What is a “Campaign” recall? Are these necessary/needed?
Software update sounds simple. But anyone know what’s involved for Degas Vents?
After returning home from a short drive today, I plugged in for a scheduled charge of an hour and a half on the weekend timer, expecting to start on the weekday timer in the morning to top off & warm up the battery for the drive, and while the car did seem to be charging as it should be, (based...
