Re: Something to Consider Regarding Battery Degradation

Well that is part of it: Larger fins also means the battery is bigger and there isn't much room where the batteries are under the floor. Using coolant is an effective way to get the heat away from the batteries while still having a compact package. Besides it isn't like car companies haven't been us...

Just about everyone else in the industry uses active cooling with coolant except the first generation Leaf. Especially if y...

Re: "Yellow Wrench" light while driving in the rain... later red warning!

Did your car get the recall fixed for that? (It may not be a recall but I know there is an issue there.) There is a high-voltage wiring issue with the battery near the drivers side rear-wheel. Water can get in there and cause some corrosion in the connectors. For the fix I believe they clean up that...

Check it out a possible error from the Mach-E: https://www.macheforum.com/site/attachments/annotation-2020-02-18-194354-jpg.1558/ I say possible error as this popped up in a video of the London reveal where the reviewer was sitting in the front talking while the center display ran through a whole bu...

Re: Mustang Mach-E

Well I have one reserved whatever that means in Ford speak LOL

(Looking at the reservation FAQ: You give your $$ to Ford, they don't guarantee anything and you get your $$ back once you've placed an order with a dealer. So what does putting in a reservation get me other than loaning Ford $500?)

Re: Instantly improve “range” after purchasing a used FFE

Didn't really have to do all that. You'll quickly learn that the "range" as displayed is highly variable on the FFE. With about two charge cycles it would have reverted to whatever your driving habits are. There is a reason the range display is termed the "guess-o-meter". In fact you can even watch ...
