Thinking about buying a used Mirai -- any red flags?

I've had an EV before and I noticed that used Mirai are relatively affordable for cars have 50K. How much does it cost to refuel? I read it cost more than filling up a hybrid?

How/why would a Mirai end up in Maryland?

Saw this on marketplace. The east coast has 0 fueling stations for hydrogen as far as I know! Yet this is not the only mirai I found for sale in the area. How? Why?

Donut has entered the chat

If you’re not familiar with their work- Donut is the Millenial/Gen-Z equivalent of Top Gear, with maybe some Jackass in the mix. I love their content- especially the way they explain things in irreverent/layperson’s terms.

They’ve weighed in on the Mirai debacle.

Ok why not?

42k miles. Already have a daily driver would use this as a 2nd car and obviously nothing in this price range can match the comfort/luxury of this car. No fuel card obviously but not sure how much more the price per mile compared to gas is.

Site to see current hydrogen prices?

I’m new, did a search and didn’t find anything. Does a site/app exist like GasBuddy to show hydrogen prices?

Is this 2024 Mirai deal Worth it?

Is 2024 Mirai Worth it? Price Breakdown Below

Hi, I'll like to get y'all thoughts on this deal I got from the dealership for a 2024 Mirai.

  • MSRP: 53,000
  • Dealer discount: 1,500

  • Rebates: 22,000

  • Down payment: 1,500

  • Taxes (10.75%): 5623.26

  • Fees: 788

  • Toyota Maintenance: approx 3800

**Amount financed :** $38,846.26 **(0.00 APR).**

**Approx monthly payments for 72 months:** $538.75

**15K Fuel Card for 6 years**.

On my previous car (Camry Hybrid) I used to spend approx $200 on gas. I don't drive too often, I use the train for work. so I think I can manage the Hydrogen situation as there is also a station close by.

What do you think?

Finance a new toyota Mirai

I have heard some people say that if you buy the new Toyota Mirai and finance it, you have to pay the payment for at least 3 yrs, you can’t sell the car in the first 3 years.If you do so, toyota will take away your 22000$ incentives and will refinance your payment based on the original MSRP. Is that true? Can somebody who bought the new Mirai tell me?

FUCK TRUE ZERO!

Fucking TZ doesn’t even have a working phone number to call if you have an issue. Does anyone know TZ’s actual location? I’d like to drive my Mirai that doesn’t have any fuel and park it in front of their front door and let them deal with it.

Is there a Chevron station near you?

Chevron and Iwatani announced a partnership: Chevron will fund hydrogen pumps at their existing locations.

“SAN RAMON, Calif./HOUSTON, Feb. 24, 2022 – Chevron U.S.A. Inc. (Chevron), a subsidiary of Chevron Corporation (NYSE: CVX), and Iwatani Corporation of America (ICA), a wholly owned subsidiary company of Iwatani Corporation (TYO: 8088), today announced an agreement to co-develop and construct 30 hydrogen fueling sites in California by 2026.”

Has anyone heard a progress on this? Announcement was made two years ago, and their promise was to have 30 stations open two years from now.

Hydrogen refueling nightmare (station Reliability)

Couldn't refuel as the latch wont latch. Classic TZ issue. Before you guys throw your 2 cents on how to properly latch it please be aware that even the tech on site couldnt help :)

Anyone else ready to fight your lane assist?

Because I swear mine is out to kill me. I don't use it unless I really need to in the dark, because twice I was put in harms way. I feel safer with it off at this point. So the situations were more or less the same. Both times were on the freeway. For whatever reason I seen to be invisible to cars if I'm driving under 60mph. Which is me all the time because that's what it takes to get 300mpf.

Anyway here's the situation:

  1. car that doesn't see me decides to merge into my lane without acceleration
  2. I'm forced to pull away quickly
  3. I do not turn in my blinker
  4. Lane assist kicks in and immediately pulled me back towards the merging vehicle
  5. I snatched back the wheel and hold as I realized what's happened
  6. I turn on my blinker
  7. Have assists relinquishes control.

This takes about .75 seconds. The second time, less because I immediately knew to hit the blinker ASAP.

So yeah, I want to fight my lane assist. Total waste of money around crazy drivers. Most unsafe safety feature I've encountered to date.

EV conversion

I’ve been watching the Sabrina for a while now and I’ve always been curious. How much do you guys think it would cost to convert the Mirai into an EV vehicle instead of hydrogen? Would it even be worth it that point?

Bought a Second Mirai Today

My fuel card was almost out and since I was going to keep buying fuel anyway, I decided to buy a certified used 2021 with under 5k miles to get a new fuel card. For me it's like getting the car for free, but I can get the $4k tax rebate on my taxes next year.

#1 scam must avoid

I regret every single day purchased this Mirai. I really want to get rid of it, but i dont have a second car. I am paying monthly over $500 for this piece of shit, and it’s totally not worth it. It’s stressful, depressing, and every time wanting to get a fuel pump it gives me a heart attack. I have to consistently pray to the lord that by the time i get to the station it’s not down. This is miserable. Take my advice. Dont buy this junk. You will regret

Europe

As the H2 infrastructure is much more robust in Europe and it costs about $2800 to ship from CA, has anyone tried to import a car there for resale and/or has anyone moved there with their car.

Personal note: specifically thinking about selling to a buyer and/or moving back to Berlin.
