Re: AC not reliable in warm weather

The car won't cool the cabin until the battery is happy, so you'll get warm air if you leave it on. But there's no indicator the battery is happy, so you'll never know when it's ready for you to turn the air conditioning on.

Re: AC not reliable in warm weather

In hot weather, the cooling system prioritizes cooling the HV battery before cooling the cabin. So the air conditioning compressor is running, but it's not your turn to get cold yet. After the battery temp is at a manageable level, cold air is diverted to you. This is normal.

Re: 2016 focus electric only shows 57 mile budget

The battery is covered if it fails or faults. If it degrades slowly, that's on you. Ford is specific in the warranty. And the number earlier is 110 MPGE, which is some EPA mathematical conversion to relate cost per mile to a gas car using numbers that may not be valid for you. The range number is th...

Re: Debating buying a 2013, what is the typical battery life?

The battery and powertrain have a 8 year,100 K mile warranty, but not against degradation on the battery. Battery degradation depends on so many factors that any individual's experience isn't much of a barometer. Basically, the more and harder you work any battery, the more capacity it loses over ti...

Re: Looking for advice

Every concern you have is valid for an FFE. On extremely hot Florida days, the AC system first prioritizes battery temperature management. Once that is met, I can get cold air. It takes two or three minutes. Once that is done the AC works as well as any conventional car. However, if you remote start...

For this car you need a battery with a working voltage of more than 14 volts, and not 12 as in gasoline cars?
No. Mine starts with 12 V all the time.

Re: EVSE Recall mail

So my dealer is claiming they have to keep my car for half a day in order to replace the evse. They're claiming there's some kind of inspection that has to happen. This is a giant pain in the ass for me since I have to drop off my car, get a ride to work, get a ride back to the dealership later in ...
