Re: Just bought 2012 Focus EV

I now charge with the 220v charger mainly does it degrade battery more than the 120v supplied charge? I recall on the Leaf’s forums they suggest to charge battery to 80% vs 100% for better battery life. Does that apply to our batteries? As Silverrabbit said there's a buffer of about 10% at the top ...

Re: Stop Safely Now Warning

Wanted to post an update. After my dealership got my car back and did a reassessment they confirmed that I never formally approved any work so all of the work they had done prior to 8/1 which should have cost me around $1400, is on them. That's the only good news I have. Since then they continued t...

Re: Just bought 2012 Focus EV

Take it on a trip you know it can do and when you get home, do the heater run down to take it the rest of the way and make note of the energy reading on the trip meter before charging it back up. For an accurate measurement you do have to use the heater to run it all the way down from 100% to 0% (p...

Re: Best option for Carplay / Android Auto head unit in 2012 FFE

Roanhouse welcome to the club! Perhaps nobody has replied because very few of us have tried to upgrade our car's infotainment. I would expect a fancy aftermarket head unit to be a nightmare to wire up and keep all the functionality. But may be feasible to replace your APIM with a newer Ford APIM tha...

Re: My 23 KW battery is being replaced

James, I got my 2014 back on May 24th with the replacement battery. I received a 23 kWh pack, NOT a new 33.5 kWh one. At no time did the manager at the dealership mention the size of the replacement pack. I didn't ask either, because I haven't heard of *anyone's* replacement pack being the smaller o...

Re: My 23 KW battery is being replaced

Charliedog that's great to hear! My 2014 is also at the dealership waiting for a replacement battery pack which should arrive next week. They only approved having it replaced after the 5th time that it was towed to the dealer over the past 16 months. I've posted most of the history in Carbuff's thre...

I reported them. Last time I messaged the moderator he responded in a day, hopefully they'll get deleted shortly.

Re: Car will not start

I got my car back on Tuesday after its 3rd dealer visit for the SSN problem. The first time was in January, the longest I've had the car since then was most of the month of June. After driving only the Volt for the past 2 months I really forgot how much more I like driving the FFE. This time the dea...

Re: Purchased a new to me 2012 FFE with 14K Miles

Unfortunately in NC, there are no State or Utilities incentives. Steve It doesn't matter what incentives you have in NC when buying a used FFE from another state. The price you pay should be discounted by whatever incentives the previous owner had when they bought the car. For $13k I would expect t...

Re: Car will not start

Kinshi, I'm still in the same boat as you. I got my car back for 3 days, it rained the 2nd & 3rd day and sure enough, driving through puddles triggered the SSN again. It's now been back at the dealer for a month for its 3rd visit. I haven't heard ANYTHING since it was towed back to them, except some...
