Re: Suspension creak

Sorry folks that it has taken me so long to post my follow up, but I have some info. I took the dealer mechanic for a short ride around the back of their building on May 15. Turned the wheel side to side and ran over a couple of manholes. Clunked beautifully. They found both front stabilizer links h...

Re: Suspension creak

I have a 2013 FFE and have just begun to notice a front end clunk. We've had a rough pot hole winter, maybe related to that? I have also noticed it when turning the steering wheel back and forth rapidly. I checked all tires for wiggle (like loose lug nuts) and found nothing. It seems it might be tie...

Re: Stop Safely Now

I had my SSN occur last year at 5300 miles. Long time in the shop. Bummer but I loved the car and still do. My problem was the wiring harness, and once replaced, I am up to over 12,000 miles with no problems.

Re: Intelligent access keys & leaving your key in the vehicl

My 2013 FFE will unlock by touching the backdoor handle if the front has momentarily locked me out. Anyone else able to do this?

Re: range question for current FFE owners

Reading complaints of how much energy is used going up hills immediately makes me suspect driving style is the culprit. Whatever your means of propulsion, hills use up a lot more energy. Try a slight deceleration going up hills and you will change your watt hrs per mile usage enormously.

Re: Goodbye to my Focus Electric?

I'm not feeling your enthusiasm for electric vehicles. I'm delighted with my FFE, even though I live in the northeast.

Re: Goodbye to my Focus Electric?

We went more than a year with only 115volt and it worked fine. There are a lot of charging hours between getting home in the evening and leaving for work. I finally got the higher voltage charger after sometimes using up range on longer trips during the day. I still don't use it much in the summer.

Re: Limited charging

Thanks as usual for your thoughtful replies. The blue ring at all times showed a full charge. I have made sure both trip meters were zeroed to disallow my driving habits. This morning the charge is full blue and 83 miles showing. But something weird did happen a few days ago (lasting for 3 days) whi...

Re: Limited charging

Driving conditions were light if anything, and no use of heat or air conditioning. It is unlike anything previously experienced. Charging for 10 hours plus with practically no change is strange. I made sure I really had a connection, and the same occurred at three different charging locations over t...
