My new 4000Li makes a humming or almost subtle grinding noise when I first take off. Has anyone else experienced this?
It also arrived with a little bit of road rash, which I expected from either shipping or it being a showroom display model. But otherwise it is beautiful and wow what an improvement over the xb-700li. It is built with far superior quality and feels absolutely solid, whereas my 700li should have been nicknamed "Elvis". It would rattle shake and roll over every tiny bump.
Also, after 19 months and over 3000 miles, the batteries on my 700li were in rapid decrease mode. My range brand new was at least 25 miles, and is now around 12 or less. Anyone have experience with the durability of the 4000li batteries? The two year warranty certainly gives me hope. If my range has dropped to half by the end of that two years will they replace them for me under warranty? Thanks for reading!!!
