FFE is gone

So yesterday was a sad day, I walked away from my trusty FFE after 3 1/2 years and 38,500 miles of ownership. The last drive down to the dealership to pick up my new car was bittersweet...anticipation for what I was getting, but sadness since the FFE had far exceeded my expectations. The FFE showed ...

Re: 2016 FFE - A/C is not blowing cold

I have the reverse problem. I am not getting any heat from the vents even if the heater is dialed up to max. Does anyone have experience with having issues with heater and how expensive is it to fix the heater/heatPump on FFE 2014? Thanks. Have you checked your coolant to see if it is low? Not sure...

Re: Moving On......

So went to CarMax today, they offered me $10,000. I submitted a trade-in request to Tesla, they offered $11,500. Not too bad, considering, after Ford discounts and rebates, and tax incentives, I only paid about $14,500 for the car (not including sales tax, 9.5% in SoCal, and registration). This car ...

Re: Moving On......

Thanks, guys. Looking forward to my Model 3 (not a M3, that will always be a BMW to me!!), but will miss my first electric car, my FFE.

Moving On......

So, as I've stated in earlier posts, my main motivation in buying the FFE was to take advantage of the carpool lane access here in California, which saves me at least 20-25 minutes in my commute each day. That access expires in January, so I have been evaluating whether it is worth getting another c...

Re: Lease End Options

To sell it to CarMax (or to anybody else), you would have to buy the vehicle out from the lease, take title, then sell it back. Depending on the state you live in, you will also likely pay sales tax on the $12,900 (where I live, in California, I would have to pay sales tax). Question is, would Carma...

Re: Five years, 70k miles

What are you thinking about to replace the Focus? Most likely a Chevy Bolt. My biggest complaint about the Focus is the small range. But I'm open to suggestions! If you can wait a few months, you may want to consider a Hyundai Kona or Kia Niro; those will both be out late 2018 / early 2019, and sho...

Re: California Owners - White HOV stickers expiring Jan 2019

The way I read it is: if you bought your car on or after Jan 1 2017 you can apply at the end of this year for a new sticker. Will it be red? I don't know. :roll: That is correct. I bought my car in May 2015, so I have a white sticker. Unless our wonderful legislators change the current rules, my wh...

Re: 2018 FFEs sold out in California

If I had to buy today, I'd get a Bolt. But I'm thinking in 6 months to a year there will be several new EVs on the market, including new entries from Hyundai and Kia.
