Charger kicks on when I open the door

When I go out in the morning to drive my Focus, I have to unplug the car before I open the door or the charger will kick on. The car is fully charged since it's been plugged in overnight and has 5k miles on it. My Fusion Energi never did this. It's not a big problem, since I usually just unplug it b...

Re: For Sale - GE Wattstation 30 amp Level 2 EVSE - $300

I wouldn't keep it if I got a TM3. I'd want to charge at the maximum rate at times.

Re: help plz --- Which charger to buy

I've bought two Clipper Creek chargers and have been very happy with both. I left the first one at the house I sold 2 years ago, that's the reason for buying a second one.

Re: Replacing damaged rear seats

Did you take the backseat out of the car? It would not surprise me if the foam is glued to the bottom. I'd take the seat out and start cutting the old cover off, making note of how it is attached.

After tax, license, doc, fed tax credit, state cash rebate, and PGE rebate I got my 2018 with the extra optional white paint for $18,700.

Re: Lease End Options

Sorry, it was fifteen years ago. I don't remember who it was through at that point.

Re: Lease End Options

The last thing the leasing company wants is the car back. They're in business to collect checks, not sell cars. When the lease was up on my F250 I called them and told them it wasn't worth what they were asking, but I offered a lower amount and they accepted. They wanted $19k and I ended up giving t...

Re: California Owners - White HOV stickers expiring Jan 2019

Incentives. Tax breaks. HOV access. Mandatory sales quotas. So much effort to try and overcome the indomitable force of the free market. Each continually tweaked as natural demand and unintended consequences work a way around it. I bought a used FFE with no financial incentives in a state with no H...

Re: California Owners - White HOV stickers expiring Jan 2019

I just sold a perfectly good 2014 Fusion Energi to my brother and bought the Focus to stay in the lanes legally. I have too much pride to just self insure against tickets, like tens of thousands of others do. Luckily, I like the Focus a lot. I've cashed my $500 PGE check, got my approval email from ...
