Extended Warranty - Worth It?

Hi all, I'm approaching the end of my 36-month bumper to bumper warranty and I'm considering purchasing an extended warranty through Flood Ford. Here are the current prices from Flood for my 2014 FFE. I note that they have gone up somewhat over the past few years, based on previous posts in this for...

12v battery appears dead

First time this has happened to my FFE and I'm kicking myself for not following the popular advice on the forum to buy a small 12v charger. Questions: -I assume plugging it in won't solve this problem, correct? -Can I just jump the battery like I would an ICE car? -Anyone have any recommendations fo...

Re: Depreciation FYI

This car will be worthless if they ever come up with a 150 mile or 200 mile EV. Nobody would buy one of these if in 2017 there are a bunch of $30K 150+ mile EVs on the market. That all depends on your definition of worthless. These are very nice vehicles that even with a limited range of 80 miles p...

Re: Depreciation FYI

Ouch. guys, BUYING an electric car is like buying one of the original DVD players in 1997. You're going to spend a TON more as an early adopter vs. the guy that waits a cycle or two. I've always said that leasing, recouping the rebates up front, is the only way to go with electrics and I stick to t...

Re: Fix for Squeaky Plastic?

Yeah, I figured I would mention it next time I take it in for something. I just feel a bit sheepish about ONLY taking it in for this. I'm still not pleased with the steering on my new FFE, so perhaps I'll talk to them about that and see if they can fix the squeak at the same time.

Re: EVSE Credit tax credit extended for 2014

Does the EVSE have to be bought AND installed in 2014 to qualify for the credit? I'd like to buy one before year end, but don't want to mess with the installation before year end. My understanding would be only 2014 costs would be allowed. If the credit is extended for 2015, you could likely take t...

Fix for Squeaky Plastic?

So the one downside to the FFE being so amazingly quiet, is that I can hear every little rattle and noise inside the car (first world problems, I know). With our other ICE vehicle, the hum of the engine provides just enough white noise to drown out any little squeaks or rattles. The main squeaky poi...

Re: Deal on Charging Station, should I go for it?

Here's another deal on a Blink EVSE, that arrived in my inbox today. How does this compare to some of the other chargers? Through December 31, 2014, we are offering the Blink HQ, our residential EV charging station, for only $499.95! The Blink HQ offers great value and features, including: The abili...
