Re: 2014 Focus EV vs 2016 E-golf

My philosophy is to NEVER own a German car off warranty. Unless you gotta "guy".

My 2010 Mini has a "guy" :-)

Re: Long term support - keep or sell?

The Ioniq 5 looks very interesting, can't wait to see that one in person. I've listed my FFE for sale and placed a model 3 SR+ on order (Jan Delivery). If the FFE sells for a decent price then I'll go through with it....if I can't get anything reasonable for the FFE then I'll cancel the order and j...

Re: Numerous Issues - HELP!

Are you 100% sure the "little green car" light was on? I've done this a few times, and it's documented here on the site as well. You don't properly step on the brake, press start, etc. The sequence isn't completely "perfect" the car gets moody and won't go.

Re: Greetings

BStanley,

I'm thinking, unless you got a beyond sweetheart of a deal, this car might not be worth the hassle. There are other used FFE's out there.

Re: AC not reliable in warm weather

Sorry you all have had issues with your AC. Both my 2015 and 2017 FFE's could be used to store meat in the 100+ degree summer days.

Well, anyone looking for a parts car, our 2012 is being auctioned off. It was reporting 77% battery until a day or so ago when the 12v battery died.

I'm shocked the airbags didn't go off.

Re: Registration / License Plate Cost

Yep, in VA it costs me more in the extra EV fee than it does for the electricity to run the car.
