Re: '17 FFE Dead 12Volt battery

Sure if you were buying a production car. Even after 5 years (first FFE was 2012) the FFE is still a prototype and kind of hand built--they still only build 2 or 3 a shift, I'd bet they still have engineers walk the line when they build them etc. Its a house of cards that Ford assembles and sells t...

Re: '17 FFE Dead 12Volt battery

Very little technology wise has changed except the battery since the FFE came to market in 2012. Like all new first generation products there will be bugs to work out. If that's not something you can live with then buying the FFE was probably a mistake. I'm sorry, triangles, but I have to disagree ...

Re: 2017 FFE...no more allocation for 2017

I takes 90 days from order to delivery it seems and they usually end production in August So it make sense that there would be no more allocation as they seem to have enough orders. But wouldn't it make sense to start taking 2018 orders earlier than that? Even with the understanding that they might...

Re: 2017 FFE...no more allocation for 2017

I just think they had a certain number of FFE they planned to build and they are all allocated...seems like a majority went to Canada! Perhaps the allocations went to Canada, but the cars themselves haven't made it here yet. I just talked to my dealer, and mine's been on a train in Kent WA for two ...

Re: My bad: I spilled soda on the USB/SD Card center - plz h

I feel your pain. I once dumped some grape Crush into my laptop. Fortunately the colour made it easy to clean up once I opened the case, but some of my keys were still sticky underneath for a long while afterwards. When you say that the USB and SD slots are still not working, are you saying that the...

Re: Two electrics in the house

I like your placement of the HOV sticker. It looks like there's just room for it next to the wiper's swath. I was thinking of getting a sheet of "fridge magnet" material to cut when I get mine, but maybe I'll just copy what you did. I just can't stand the idea of putting stickers onto a painted surf...

Re: 2017 FFE let's get some real data here.

We are and will always be a one-car (and one-driver's-licence) family. Huh? Is this a family of one person? Assuming more than one, what if there's an emergency and the person with the license is incapacitated and can't drive? 911. For non-medical: taxi, bus, walking, friends... Cars and driver's l...

Re: 2017 FFE let's get some real data here.

If you had to charge on L2 due to defective DC charger, it would take 5 hours to charge, not 24. That's still pretty bad. I agree. At least you could put enough L2 juice in to make it to the next DC charger. However (as far as I can tell from PlugShare) there aren't even L2 chargers nearby for some...

Re: 2017 FFE let's get some real data here.

I have not yet studied the location of the fast DC chargers around me (I have however found a free one 2 miles from me at 50kw) so not sure the '17FFE is really for me (although I have one on order). I live in an urban area, and there are a few fast chargers within about 20 km of where I live. Furt...
