Re: Lease End Options

Well the amount of $$ Ford would want is spelled out on the lease agreement, unless they make you an offer. You really can't make an offer to them you have to wait for them--and in my experience they just won't (if you call Ford Credit they will just direct you to the number on the lease contract).

Re: Lease End Options

Why not just turn it in?

Take it to the Ford dealer hand them the keys and walk away... Thats usually how leases end.

Re: Mileage Declined at 100% Charged

Neither: Its not called the GOM for a reason (GOM = Guess O Meter). The mileage shown at full (or any other time for that matter) is based on your driving style and the roads you've taken. If you drive on the highway a lot and then drive "a tank" on surface streets going slow the next "tankful" will...

Re: MFM is a joke!! And Ford is no help.

Note that MFM has always been spotty and never reported accurate data for me for the entire time I had both my Focus Electric and my C-Max. Now that they don't build either anymore I doubt you'll get anyone to put any effort into correcting this (unless the new vehicles with a plug--Lincoln Aviator,...

Re: Thoughts on a Chevy Bolt

Bolt has real advantages (range, better seat height adjustment, turning radius, ...) but there are still aspects of the FFE I like better: it is quieter (Bolt added what sounds like a pump going most of the time), it gives me a few options missing in the Bolt (turn head lights on/off only when I wa...

Re: Ford BEV SUV

Well they have been talking about a 300 mile range'd BEV CUV for almost as long as the FFE has existed (with nothing to show for it, so I'm not holding my breath). The new Lincoln Aviator has an option level with a plug--so at least there is a PHEV in the works (its a new platform and rumors are tha...

Re: MyFord Mobile in Europe

jmueller065, Thanks for the answer. Yes, my car is from the USA. And how does the modem work? Need to insert a sim card into it? I have no idea: In the US cars it just (sort of) worked. Owner's really didn't have to do anything with it (other than occasionally reboot it--the Telematics Module--its ...

Re: MyFord Mobile in Europe

Is your car a former US car that was shipped over? If so it is likely that its cellular modem isn't compatible with Europe's systems and thus MFM probably won't work over there (that or there is no contract for service for the modem--in the US Ford contracted with AT&T for cellular service).

Re: Full charge calculation (West Canada)

I believe you go into the trip display and then hit the right arrow button on the left pads to get into the trip settings and turn on the enhanced trip meter. Its been a few years since I had an FFE.

Re: Normal degradation or problem?

I would take it in on the off chance that you get a "free" larger battery. Its worth a shot.
