Re: 2018 FFEs sold out in California

Ford plans to discontinue all passenger cars in the USA except for the Mustang, they are going to concentrate on trucks and SUVs in the future it appears.

Re: FFE first time service - where and when?

I had the Ford dealer do the annual service each year during my FFE lease.
Cost only about $11 and they rotated the tires and did inspections, check the 12v battery, etc.

Re: Drained 12V Battery

I had this 12v battery draining problem early on the first year with my leased 2014 FFE. However a firmware update came out that reportedly addressed this problem among other things and I go that done at the Ford dealer and I rarely had the issue after that. To be safe, I kept a lithium ion 12v emer...

Re: Car will not start

After going through all this I just wonder how much diagnosis and repair training Ford offers to EV-certified dealerships. The evidence says nowhere near enough. I don't believe diagnosis and repair training are the problem here. Ford could probably improve the diagnostic equipment some but I think...

Re: Chevy Bolt Drive

How was your experience regarding the Chevy Bolt rear cargo storage space vs the FFE?
I'm also anxiously awaiting the upcoming Hyundai Kona EV later this year, looks like it could give the Bolt competition.

Excellent Bolt review, thanks!
Do you think a driver with height 6'2" and weight 190# would find the driver's seat OK as you did?

Re: Lease a new 2018 FFE vs purchase a used 2014 FFE

I think the Madiri was saying the used 2015 FFE has 21K miles on the odo, not that is priced at $21k to buy. Oh so right, stupid me for reading that wrong. Hopefully the price is down in the $9,000 area. Yep, I just checked the CarMax website for used FFEs in California. I found one 2015 FFE but it...

Re: Actual residual value of your FFE...

With that 8300 or so residual price, what is the end of lease buyout price then?
