Re: Just bought 2012 Focus EV

Please go to “Topping of Bad for Battery” topic. They meant topping off. In this string of dialogue, there is a place that states Ford has SOC at 100% actually only charges to 90% of capacity and SOC at 0% actually is 10%. That is 20% of 23 KWh battery - very close to the useable 18 KWh when new. I ...

Re: thinking of buying my 2017 FFE when the lease is up ...

I would check used car prices on CarGurus and cars.com. Does the car serve your needs? Would a newer model with a longer range be a better choice? It all depends. The cost of new will be more. Sales tax should not make a difference-pay it regardless. The range of 100 to 125 miles serves me well. Gre...

Re: What level 2 charger is everyone using these days?

I use a TurboChord. It is 240v 16amp. It puts out 3.6 KWh per hour. It is portable. Cost $199 now. Only draw back is the unique plug. I found that slower charging is not an issue as we charge two EV cars at night time. Each fully charged in the morning. We have two plugs/two chargers. Silver Rabbit ...

Re: Looking at a 2012 FFE

Make sure that all recalls on the car have been done - run the vin number at NHTSA. Call Ford to see. Owner if original should have paperwork from dealer when completed. There was a stall problem with early ones that they corrected with software upgrade. That is a good price provided recalls complet...

Re: 2018 FFEs sold out in California

Well my FFE was in a pile-up and totaled. Researched the heck out of it, and for the price FFE won out again, but 2018s are sold out in No. and SoCal. With tariff and production hoopla, anyone worried they might drop from lineup? And if not, when will 2019 arrive? I personally think the new Nissan ...

Re: 2017 Ford Focus lease California

My reservation for Model 3 came up, but could not swing payment and insurance. My lease was up on 2015 FFE. Antelope Valley Ford had an ad for a 2017 FFE with leather for $22,002 with the $3,000 Ford purchase rebate ($25,002 for 9.5% sales tax). I asked for a lease comparison. They came back with an...

Re: LA Auto Show

My Dad and I went to the L A Auto Show on Monday, November 23, 2015. Ford had one Focus Electric on display. Ford rep was down talking the car to a person who was asking questions about the car. The gentleman did not know Ford had a pure electric. The rep had only negative comments about the car. Th...
