Re: Stop Safely Now Warning

While I'm aware of several limitations that the FFE has, reliability has been outstanding for me. I had one SSN early on, since the software update never again. No repairs of any sort, only maintenance was to replace the tires when they wore out. [...] About the same here: 4 years of good driving, ...

Re: Recall / Field Service Action; Where to find more info?

15C06 recall and tire rotation done on ours, at about 10,000 miles. (No harsh winter weather or snowy roads here, for other recall work.) Work was done in 3 or 4 hours, and dealer gave me a loaner at no cost except to refill the fuel tank (98 cents, into a nice C-Max). (C-Max had less blind spot pro...

Re: MFT Wallpaper

Cool, I like some of those ... but especially like the idea of making my own. HOW do you (or what program do you use to) make such images? I have tried editing some of my own images down to size: easy enough, but matching the horiz. / vert. spec's is Hard with my program. I keep getting error messag...

Re: electric rate is New to myfocuselectric

Cool. Welcome, and browse: there is much here. E.g.: there is a page for just saying "Hi" like this, with the word "introductions" in it: http://www.myfocuselectric.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=42 Also, some like to mention (roughly) where they are in the country (state, or province of Canada, etc....

Re: Lease Return and Tires

We returned our 2012 leased FFE with tires that were obviously worn, but matched original types.
Were told that Ford (at least our dealer) did not regard the tires as something to charge about.
(Note: I did not rotate front-back as often as should have.)

You didn't mention conduit, which adds neatness + keeps accidents away from the wires.

Re: Just took Delivery

Congratulations! [...] I assume you have all the past recalls completed. I suggest that you register your car at owner.ford.com Once done (with VIN et al. ), you can look for recalls under "Notifications", which gives a good starting point for talking with dealers /service shops. BTW, it helps that...

Re: Shopping: Ford Focus Electric vs Chevy Spark EV

2. Battery life: How do you estimate that "20-25%" drop? I did not notice an obvious drop in range, at 3 years / 30,000 miles. Several factors, all consistent: 1. The ETE estimate is down considerably, now shows about 16.5 (varies of course) (per OBD) 2. The energy used when nearing exhaustion afte...

Re: Shopping: Ford Focus Electric vs Chevy Spark EV

I find the Spark too small...Focus is a good size Battery life is an issue. I'm at 48000 miles and 30 months, and I'm down 20-25%, very noticeable. 3kw charging is fine overnight, but it's a hassle for turnaround during the day or if you need to use public charging. 1. Size: when looking at a Focus...
