Re: Elements of MyFord Touch v3.5 Update

My car was updated last week. It took overnight due to some glitch. The dealership is Flood Ford in Wakefield, RI. These people have been great. No questions, took it right in, had problems updating, called Ford who apparently was little help at all. The service manager gave credit to one of his own...

Re: Our One Year Anniversary

I'd like to know if you've seen any degradation in the battery. Vet Boy. I have been keeping track of mileage Wh/mile and remaining battery % charge. I calculate 5 trips every 5,000 miles and to date I have not seen a reduction in capacity. I consistently end up with a charge of 18.7 to 19.5 kWh. B...

Our One Year Anniversary

Today marks one year that I have owned the Ford Focus Electric Vehicle. As a little history, I ordered my car on November 28, 2011. I happened to be the first consumer to order the FFEV. My order # is 0001. I live in RI and ordered the car from Schultz Ford in Nanuet, NY. It arrived at the dealershi...

Re: SoCal Range Estimates

EVF, You are the perfect candidate for an EV, a commuter doing 15k miles per year! You will pay the cost difference off in 3.5 years. From that point on out you are saving substantial $ on gasoline and maintenance. I commute 40 miles one way, cruise control at 60mph, relatively flat route and use my...

Re: Heater

Don, Is that a one way commute? 90kM = 55 miles. One way would be a hike in this cold weather. The idea seems certainly worth trying and I would be interested in you results. My winter range has definently restricted the usage of this car. Several trips I regularly took in the summer are not possibl...

Re: Dead 12V battery

So, I went away for a week, I left the FFE fully charged and plugged in to my ChargePoint Level 2 charger. 24 hours out I started getting these messages about plugging in because the 12 volt battery needs to be charged. I called my bride and asked her to check the car. She told me the key would not ...
