Re: Car will not start

Did *she* say the word "lawyer" with no prompting (or screaming fit) from you? If so that's kind of unbelievable. Before this whole fiasco, I naively thought "under warranty" was sort of like insurance, meaning they'll fix your car back to its original condition reasonably quickly, at no cost to yo...

Re: Car will not start

So, yesterday I spoke to the president of Sayville Ford, aka the Ford Giant, one of the largest volume Ford dealers in NY. She told me that I needed to get a lawyer and that Ford was not going to do anything for me. Imagine that, The president of one of the largest dealers in NY has no faith in the ...

Re: Charge Fault - won't charge

I hope they can figure it out in due time. My personal experience is that mystery problems with the ffe dont get solved quickly. (over 7 months for mine and counting) There are a few more here with similar stories. Good luck! I don't know what you're talking about?!?! It only took them 5 months and...

Re: Car will not start

So, it looks a though the special machine sent from Dearborn to diagnose my problem is turning out to be another willd goose chase. Shocking!!! My car will give them the wrench light indicating the fault every time they drive it but ford wants to see an ssn before they will replace the battery. So, ...

Re: upgrade from 2014 to 2018 FFE?

I'm holding out that in another 3-5 years I'll be able to build my own battery pack to give my FFE a 150-200mi range. When I bought mine I figured at some point there would eventually be a robust aftermarket for larger capacity batteries, charge controllers, maybe even motor upgrades, etc. But give...

Re: Charge Fault - won't charge

Back when my car was supposed to be fixed months ago, my service manager told me that ford had upped the warranty on these cars but never got into details. He said he would discuss it with me when I picked it up. Obviously that never happened but I still wonder about this supposed warranty upgrade f...

Ford is recalling 120v chargers

Ford is recalling the 120v evse that came with your FFE. Well, some of them anyway. If youve got one like mine that does not have the heat sensor in the plug then they are replacing that one free of charge. My plug was kinda melted and had white goo coming from the common spade. It set off gfi plugs...
