      External plug without dismounting/remounting the tire? Ha, no, that's a temporary patch.

      It needs a permanent patch made from inside the tire.

      I opened a case for this and the Swedish "engineers" said I'm driving my PHEV wrong. So far, they haven't acknowledged an issue.

      Right, we're in Oz and ICE is magically triggered?

      It's called a "forced maintenance" cycle for a reason - it's unrelated to the above factors. If you take numerous PURE trips sans ICE, the...

      The T8 is faster, quicker to respond, and produces more torque. It can also be silent and consume significantly less fuel in the city (50+ mpg) if you drive in PURE/electric mode.

      It's been 39 - 41C here and the HVAC in my T8 is ice cold. I usually leave it at 74F (AUTO, ECO) and my significant other directs her vents away (too cold).

      In almost every "unintended acceleration" event, the cause is driver error. It can be from something binding the accelerator pedal (e.g., floor mat) or simply confusing the brake and accelerator.

      That's a gross exaggeration. I literally just said - a two week forced maintenance cycle would be reasonable.

      If the forced maintenance cycle occurred, say every two weeks, I'd agree. But, it engages every other PURE trip, which is ridiculous.

      OP, yes, the "forced maintenance" run cycles are a problem in the T8. Driving in PURE mode, ICE turns on frequently when not commanded to (via acceleration, etc).

      Try a level 2 charging station. If that fails too (yellow light, charging "paused"), the on-board is dead or the fuse is blown. Take it to the dealer.

      Like others said, you can only use ~70% of the battery in PURE mode. So, lower the charge cost 30%.

      I tow and launch a 3,400 lb boat (wet). The air suspension is the best feature - allows you to raise the vehicle and launch from shallow boat ramps (< 10 inline).
