Re: "Stop Safely Now" -- my 2016 FFE stalled twice

If it makes you feel any better, I got the little wrench thing two years ago. Stopped, "rebooted", and have been fine since.

If it happens again, capture the incident with your phone, and have the dealer give it the once over.

Re: Most miles overall?

Are there going to be battery upgrades? Just pulling these specs out of the air, but if I could get a 150 mile battery for $7500 I'd consider it. My FFE is over 30k. Have not noticed any fade beyond just a hair. 5%ish. I am very careful to keep it plugged in when cold or hot outside. Battery has nev...

Re: What is the farthest you have gotten on a charge.

About 90 miles without climate control and about 35-45 mph roads.

I have a 50 mile daily commute in Texas with full climate control. If you count lunch jaunts I hit 60 often. Never an issue. Winter with heater it can be a little close for comfort.

Re: Long time owners without major issues?

Hopefully not jinxing myself, but ours is at around the 25,000 mark and no major issues. The check your wrench light came one once or twice early on, but wen't off on their own never to return. Once in a while when we plug it in, the charger doesn't click into charge mode immediately. Overall very h...

Re: FFE sales falling off....

The FFEs have always been hard to find. There were 2 in all of north Texas when I got mine. Most population centers in Texas are perfect for this car. Yet Ford just gives Texas to the Leaf. Those Leafs are everywhere here now!!

Re: Car turns charger on and off every so often

Mine does this too. I just assumed it was a normal top off process. ...but not I am not so sure. Doesn't seem to hurt anything.

Re: EV's are dead - says Morgan Stanely

Given that demand seem to exceed supply,, at least for the FFE,, I find this hard to believe. Now, if gas prices drop, sure, demand will drop a lot. But what if gas prices increase? Double even? ...which will happen. Sooner than you think!

Re: EV's are dead - says Morgan Stanely

during my ~10 mile commute home today I saw: 1 FFE (not counting the one I was driving, so make that 2) 1 Volt 1 Tesla (strange, I usually see 3-4) ~20 Leafs (I stopped counting at 20, not sure how many there really were) And I'm sure I missed several. I couldn't even begin to count all the hybrids...
