Re: Car is bricked!

I went out yesterday evening to a dead car. It had been plugged in for two days and was fully charged at that time. I assume it is the 12V battery so having it towed to the dealer. This is just the latest of my ongoing issues with the car so can't same I'm surprised. Love my car when it works but it...

Re: 12-volt battery died; Ford "working on a patch"

Just went out to my car and it is dead, dead, dead. I was last used 1.5 days before, was fully charged and plugged in. I have left it plugged for several weeks while on vacation with no issues prior. No emails about dead batteries so not sure this is the issue but sounds likely. I've had ongoing pro...

Re: What Is Your Favorite Ford Focus EV Color?

Mine is frosted glass and I really like the color. It is a subtle green and nothing like the hideous Nissan Leaf signature color.

need more allowable stops on the navigation

It seems I'm limited to 5 waypoints on the navigation system. This was similar to my Prius. Problem is, I'm a real estate appraiser and typically need to enter way more addresses between inspections and comp photos. On Friday I had 10 stops and was just hoping I would make it home. No big deal for a...

Navigation limitation on stops?

It seems I'm limited to 5 waypoints on the navigation system. This was similar to my Prius. Problem is, I'm a real estate appraiser and typically need to enter way more addresses between inspections and comp photos. No big deal for a gas car but for an electric, this is a big deal as I need to get a...

Re: Predicted Range

I'm seeing in the high 70s so far. I live on a big hill and typically do not stick to the speed limit on the freeways. The trek up the hill to my house is a killer and I've gotten down to the 10 mile warning a couple times.

Re: Psst, buddy, want a free charging station?

Embarassed to say it is sitting there at the dealership as I've been so busy with work I haven't had a chance to pick it up. Planning to go get it on Saturday.

Re: Psst, buddy, want a free charging station?

Thanks for posting this. My car just arrived at the dealership and I am chargerless. I applied for a Chargepoint yesterday and got approved today. Apparently Solar City is doing the installations in my area (SF Bay Area). I just had my panel upgraded with a 40 amp circuit reserved for the FFE so I a...

Join the EV Project so we can get free chargers

I was approved for the program when I ordered my Nissan Leaf. Now that my Ford Focus is here I called up to install and Ford is not a part of the program even though they are still taking applications until April next year.
