Re: New Recall - Differential Assembly

I got the differential recall completed this past week along with the telematics control unit reprogramming. Took 10 days and they gave me a rental car during that time at no charge. Other than it taking so long and the slowness of service at the dealer, it was not a problem. So far it seems to be r...

I have never noticed a noise so far. I almost wish it did. I leave it open way too much and then feel stupid when I get out of the car.

Re: 1 Year In, thoughts on my FFE

Tom - your experience almost exactly mirrors my experience over nearly two years and 21,000 miles. I also live in So Cal, and my round-trip commute is 52 miles when I drive to the train station in Norwalk, or 92 miles if I go all the way to the office. If I drive to the train station, I can round-t...

Re: 1 Year In, thoughts on my FFE

Maintenance: None other than washer fluid and pumping up the tires. I am taking it in for it's first servicing soon. I always hated taking in my ICE vehicle so often. Why? There's nothing to do. Since it is under warranty I wanted it checked out. Make sure it's ok. Plus I need tires rotated. Cost: ...

1 Year In, thoughts on my FFE

My impressions of owning the FFE car are excellent. It's not perfect but it really is the best car I could own today. I actually feel special and worry others will find out about electrics and ruin it. Positives: Commute: I mostly use it for my 36 mile daily commute in the Orange county/Los Angeles ...

Re: Should I have Ford dealer service at 10,000 miles?

I have taken my 2014 FFE in for annual Ford dealer service (tire rotation, inspections) twice and they have only charged about $12 each time. Took less than an hour with no appointment too. I think its worth it at that price... Wow, that is cheap. Will try it out and see if my Southern California d...

Re: Should I have Ford dealer service at 10,000 miles?

Like any car (gas or electric), every 10,000 miles really should have brakes, CV joints, suspension, etc.; all stuff you can see and feel on a lift, inspected for anything loose or wrong. That is a good point about all the other things that they will likely do during the inspection. Probably worth ...

Should I have Ford dealer service at 10,000 miles?

I just reached 10,000 miles on my 2016 FFE. So far I've had absolutely no problems. The manual advises getting the tires rotated, fluids topped off and a general inspection. Does anyone have an idea how much this would run and is it really necessary? I am cheap and I was thinking of just taking it t...

Re: Tire Pressure monitor

I also recently had the yellow triangle warning about low tire pressure. Each tire turned out to be low at around 28-30. I thought it would warn earlier since they were getting very low. Of course I didn't check it for 6 months so that's a problem. I am surprised that there is no individual tire rea...

Re: 2017 specific forum section?

I don't think it is really needed unless there are specific 2017 only related issues such as battery, fast charging, or recalls. Maybe that is needed.
