Air Conditioning drawing more than normal

2017 Focus electric with ~30k on it. I'm fairly familiar with electric cars as I've been driving electric since the 2011 leaf, then got a 2014 Focus electric, and now the 2017 Focus electric. So I get how running the heat kills range. But in my past experience running the air conditioner has never r...

Re: Stop safely now warning

I too got my first and second Stop Safely Now warning. Both happened today within 10 minutes of each other. While driving too ... fun... Had to shut down, open door, restart, and things looked back to normal. As a coincidence I did notice there's an update to my SYNC software. I updated that via USB...

MyFordTouch and IOS/Iphone 5 contacts

Some quirks where the answer might just be "not supported" but thought I'd ask anyway 1) Phonebook / contacts name ordering - I'm a last name first, first name last kind of guy. And that's the way I have my phonebook setup on my iphone. But the MyfordTouch screen display seems to want to reverse it ...

Re: Good things to know as a new FFE Owner ?

Don't forget to check with your utility if a time of use rate is available to you. IE: cheaper rates in the nighttime and more expensive rates in the day time. You can take advantage of that rate regardless of if you charge at 120V or 240V

Re: Navigation screen slow when I zoom in or out

I know this sounds stupid quibbling over 1 vs 3 seconds of a screen refresh. I think I might have embellished the sluggishness in my memory. Looks like it's really maybe .5 seconds in the leaf where it's 1-1.5 seconds in the Focus. So not that much more, but yes, general sluggishness on the my ford...

Navigation screen slow when I zoom in or out

I'm coming off a 2011 nissan leaf so it may just be that I'm too used to that navigation screen, but this focus screen seems kinda' slow, not as responsive. There's instances where I need to zoom out on demand to get a better sense of where I'm at, and then eventually I zoom in, and out, etc... In t...

Re: 2014 focus lease, contract attached

Thanks for the points WattsUp Some follow up from calls to Ford credit corporation this morning - It's starting to sound like I'm in the minority of people that are trying to extract Gap insurance from a Ford lease . Everyone keeps saying it's packages into the lease and not an item that is/can be r...
