Re: Just bought a Certified 2017 FFE

From the people from Jordan that have posted here - they seem to really love the car. So I'm sure it has gone to a great new home. That's pretty darn cool seeing it get on a boat. Wonder if you will ever hear from it again once it sets sail. I think he said that MFM has the car located in Jordan no...

Re: Charging at 120V daily, max current for circuit breaker.

Triangles got the details exactly right. 120V at 12A (what the cord will pull) gets you 4 miles per hour of charging. Yes you can get a lot of miles overnight. With a 4 mile commute, you should plug the car in at night - it will keep the car happy. And you'll never run out of charge. If you live whe...

Re: 3 Years with my FFE

That is a cool list of things you'll miss. Oddly, you got them exactly right or I agree compared to a Model S (I can only guess the Model 3 will be the same). The one that stood out for me yeah - there is no brake coach, you have to learn how to be smooth in a Tesla. Here's one you won't realize rig...

Re: FFE does not start charging if the battery is near full

That behavior squares with what I saw recently - no charging if the car is fully or very nearly fully charged. For some unknown reason I unplugged the car after it was fully charged, and then plugged it back in. Nothing happened, the EVSE didn't do it's usual click to tell me juice was flowing. I th...

Re: Lost Charging Quadrant Not covered by Warranty

Its not necessary to remove the wheel and inner fender. The quadrant, with door mechanism, is held in place by four knobs. Remove the chargedoor, held by a clip, and use a screwdriver or similar to free the quadrant from the knobs. It does not interfere with the chargeconnector. A small connector n...

Re: Wanting to Lease a new '17 FFE

Battery degradation? You mean the 12V battery? Yeah you might have to worry about that, maybe if it went flat a couple of times. Unless they let the main battery discharge to nothing and left it there for a long time, you have nothing to worry about. You have nothing to worry about doubly, you're le...

Re: 2020 Mach 1

Well that's a horrible name. Mach I belongs with a Mustang and nothing else, ever. To chuck such an iconic name on a stinking SUV - pitiful. Of course there are Mach I forums - they're all about Mustangs. And no, please don't start a forum for a not released or official car yet. A thread is more tha...

Re: I still have the FFE

Ew yuck an Escape... oh that would make me upset. The Focus isn't so bad - at least it is familiar territory, even though it is a base model.

Re: GPS Intermittently Working

I bet there's even more to it with a BEV - the dealership probably gets the full $7,500 tax credit. Just like leasing companies get the money. So yeah, they make a ton more money selling the FFE used than they do new. Although all that misses a big cost, the cost of carrying the inventory. Hi EVA! ...
