Re: So I'm pretty sure Ford has given up on us...

Received a letter in the mail, asking me to evaluate my FFE. Pros Cons, and stuff. I wonder if they would be interested in evaluations from more of us. ?? Was that from Ford corporate in Mich., and do you have an address I might send to? (I have not been asked about the two FFE's I got; have been i...

Re: Thinking about the car, questions

My problem is that these companies [...] don't want to sell EVs so they they instead give us $hit. 1. They make almost all EVs look like $rap. 2. They make them way too small. Almost smart car category. 3. They give them low range 4. Ford for example doesn't even care about Ford Focus EV. [...] Jus...

Re: Car getting delivered soon

[...] I'd take my deposit and run. I live in the SF Bay area if that makes a difference. I wasn't too impressed with the dealers here... I did just that (take back my deposit and deal elsewhere) when 1st dealer in Richmond could not get the car from Mich. (scheduling problem). Ford store in Morgan ...

Re: Thinking about the car, questions

The Leaf is quite a different design, and got lower crash test ratings (according to safercar.gov).

Re: Got my car on my wrist!

Bingo: Thank you!
Just signing out, then back in did the trick. Back to a useful app. now.
Odd: did not have to sign in again, when went back later to re-check. Had to enter (at least) 4 digits every time, before.

Re: Got my car on my wrist!

Did that upgrade coincide with loss of functionality for some people? I used to be able to check on my FFE through my Samsung tablet (running Android 4.4.2 now). Lately, I can no longer see anything useful, like battery % charge, tires, ... (I just downloaded v 2.0.83, replacing ...73: no obvious ch...

Re: Thinking about the car, questions

Is this the right car for her as a commuter car? Is the car safe? Adding to other responses here: Very good as a commuter car as it excels in stop-and-go traffic, and a single driver can use "diamond lanes" (HOV / meant for multi-occupant) in some states. Quick response to accelerator, to take adva...

Re: how to reset Climate control

Pull and reset the fuse for MFT (the infotainment system). It interfaces with the climate system and, apparently, can cause issues with the "startup state" of the climate controls. This resolved some weird climate issues at "car on" for me (on my 2013 FFE). Thank you. This did indeed clear up part ...

how to reset Climate control

A/C stays on now, regardless of on/off displayed on control panel. (This is a recent "feature" of my car.) Another new nuisance: the recirculation indication appears when I start the car, even though other settings (like which vents are on and what temperature is set) are remembered from when car w...
