Re: Long time owners without major issues?

28K miles here on my 2012. No issues to speak of other than a couple SSNs around the 3K mile mark that were addressed quickly after they were in the shop. Otherwise, zero maintenance or worries. Plug it in and drive. Lease will be up in Nov and we will miss it I'm sure. Probably going Tesla now that...

Re: PHEV + EV Household

Focus Electric plus Fusion Energi here. Great combo. Range on Energi isn't as good as Volt, but it makes up for it with seating for 5 (a must have for me) and much, much better looks IMO. My wife gets free charging at work, so we charge off-peak and solar at home 1 way on that. We love them!

Re: Charging to 80%

I was hoping to see this as a S/W configurable option. Not so much for battery life, but because I live on a steep hill that goes about 1.5miles. If I shift to low I can pick up anywhere between 7-9 miles of range by the time I'm at the bottom. It would be nice if Ford would let us charge to say 80%...

Re: No changes for the 2014 Focus Electric

They announced a couple of days ago that pricing will be $5K less for the 14's, so I guess you could say there was a change.

Re: Why do i here the warning chime when the car door is ope

my knee hits the headlight switch all the time. Surprisingly the headlights don't drain the battery as much as you might think if you do leave them on.

PG&E customers on TOU plans - tomorrow is 5/1

FYI...Summer tier pricing goes into effect at midnight. You're gonna be twice as much per KwH if you consume at peak periods, more if your baseline is higher.

Re: would you recommend a FFE to a friend?

I would recommend it to a friend for sure. I would caveat it by saying that it should be a 2nd or 3rd car. I would also recommend a LVII charger and to switch to a TOU plan. I would also encourage them to find a deal ~$200/mo with nothing out of pocket (state refund wash nets zero). Then, it is a sc...

climate control comes on at every start

Recently my CC has started coming on automatically at every start. It is very thoughtful to set it at 70* every time, but it frankly shocks my wife and I when we see the mileage drop. Is this a software glitch or a configurable? I don't recall changing anything in settings?

Re: Saw one on the road..

I live in the south Bay Area, CA (Silicon Valley). Tons and tons of Leafs and quite a few Volts. I have seen more Mitsubishi Miev's than Focus electrics! Actually I haven't seen another, save for the one on the floor of the auto show in January. I don't mind the anonymity. At the same time I'd like ...
