Re: Car will not start

It makes me sad there are cases like yours that leave a dead FFE at the dealer for months and months. My 2017 FFE died the first day I picked it up with 430 km on the odo. Week 1, the dealer was able to diagnose dead motor. New motor in shipment from Ford. Week 2, received new motor from Ford and sw...

Re: Uncomfortable cloth seats

No luck yet. I actually almost bought a leather seat from a Titanium but it was in rough shape and exposed to weather. Not much else available around here to look at yet. But I was at least able to confirm 100% the bolts and wiring harness look the same in 2015+. I'm going to try a slimmer seat cush...

Re: Uncomfortable cloth seats

and on longer drives (a couple hours) they're much more uncomfortable. How can you drive for hours with a 70 mile range? I have 2017 so 110 mi range. I've taken multiple 300 - 500 km trips (one-way.. so double return). That is with fast chargers. It's long, but would be more bearable with better se...

Uncomfortable cloth seats

Am I doing something wrong? I find the cloth seats a bit uncomfortable in normal driving, and on longer drives (a couple hours) they're much more uncomfortable. Changed seat position, sitting differently, a seat cushion (increased my height enough to hit the ceiling on top of being worse comfort wis...

Re: How long did your factory ordered FFE take to arrive?

I got a call back from my dealer. They need to replace the motor. There was some 40 (?!) codes logged (not just the 2 the display showed), and they were able to narrow it down to a couple, and with further assistance from Ford, showed the problem to be in the motor... So we'll see if a new motor hel...

Re: How long did your factory ordered FFE take to arrive?

No that I have my FFE for a day, noticed a couple of issues related to FFE and Fordpass: 1. FFE in Canada, does not have modem and therefore, you cannot use your phone to remotely start up the car. 2. Fordpass has "Fuel" tab which is not applicable to FFE, it should have an option for Charging stat...

Re: How long did your factory ordered FFE take to arrive?

I received my 2017 FFE on Monday after ordering it 6 months ago. On the way home from Toronto to Ottawa, it suffered charging and motor faults and refused to start. It started with Stop Safely Now and eventually simply refuses to start the motor or connect the traction battery (i.e. no heated air :(...

Re: Does anyone know when the 2018 order bank will open?

Looks like the 2018 models are available. AND the price has been dropped by about 2k. MSRP on a 2018 FFE w leather is $29k.

Re: How long did your factory ordered FFE take to arrive?

I'm in Ontario. Here's my timeline so far for my 2017 FFE order: * April 18, 2017: Order sent from dealer to Ford * July 24: VIN assigned, ETA delivery of Sept 28th. I had to call Ford Customer Care weekly asking if there was any update on my order. My dealer was useless. * August 29: Window sticke...
