Re: FFE is gone

I changed for a variety of reasons. First, I was concerned about long-term support for the FFE from Ford. Second, the trade-in was so good. Third, my carpool lane sticker was going to expire. And fourth, I wanted a Tesla. When I bought my Tesla, the $7500 federal tax credit still applied, so that he...

Re: 2017 FFE DC Charging issue

So I know a lot of these cars went to Jordan (that's where mine went when I traded it in), and there is a Ford Focus Electric Club over there that I hear is pretty active. Wonder if they could perhaps steer you to a solution? https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://business.face...

Re: Joined the 100,000 mile club yesterday!

Congrats on making 100K!! My original plan was to keep my FFE for the long haul, but then started having problems getting recharged at work (I couldn't do the round-trip to work on a single charge, so had to charge at work). This problem had nothing to do with the car, it was because of the populari...

Re: Five years, 70k miles

If my FFE had 120+ miles of range, I don't think I would have gotten rid of it for a Tesla, instead have used the money to buy a play toy (used C7 Corvette, used Boxster/Cayman, new Miata). But, really loving the Tesla!!

Re: PlastiDip

Looks a lot like my car before I sold it. I debadged, tinted the windows, and Plastidipped the "grille". I decided to leave the chrome around the windows, but maybe I should have done that too. Nice looking car!

Re: In a toss Ford focus EV or the GM spark EV

Spark EV has a range of 82 miles. Focus EV has a range of 115 miles, if you get a later year (76 mile range for earlier versions). Spark was just too small and too basic, the Focus is like a luxury car compared to the Spark. Others to consider, e-Golf, Kia Soul EV, Nissan Leaf, Fiat 500E. All are pr...

Re: Replace 12V battery in 2017-2018 FFE

Understood where the 12V battery is. But if your jump starter is in the trunk, and you can't open the hatch, the only way to get to it is through the passenger compartment. Have you tried to do that? You may not even be able to get to that part of the trunk with the hatch down, particularly if you h...

Re: Replace 12V battery in 2017-2018 FFE

If your 12v battery dies, I don't think you'll be able to open the hatch so make sure you can get to it from the passenger section.

Re: Power connected - Not charging

I'm going to guess the 12volt battery died. Put a charger on that and see if the car comes to life.

Re: OEM Tires Worn Out After Only 12K Miles!

When I sold my car with 38,500 miles on it last November, the tires still had about 1/3 tread remaining. You must be really hard on tires!!!
