Unless you are in someplace like ND your service concerns are unfounded. 7 months into my Model 3 ownership the mobile data modem failed in my Tesla. Unlike Ford and the hassle with dealership service, I used the Tesla app to request service and after a couple emails, mobile service came out to my home and replaced the modem in my driveway. The closest service center was 2+ hours away in Cleveland. A few months after this Tesla opened a service center in Toledo a few miles from my house and the mobile service is still available as an option.
I love Ford and my FFE. Sadly Ford currently offers no vehicles that appeal to me. I look forward to many more years of service out of my FFE as a secondary vehicle to my Tesla.
Also, simply due to the lack of non-tesla charging locations in the midwest kind of made a Tesla a no-brainer for me looking for my next EV as having long distance capabilities. In less than a 20 min bathroom/snack stop I can add 150 or more miles of range to my Tesla using their supercharger network. The MachE looks to be a great vehicle but is not practical for long distance travel here in the midwest due to lack of charging infrastructure. By "lack of charging infrastructure" I mean that "high speed" places to charge are few and far between, inconveniently located, and cost the equivalent of paying $16 / gallon of gasoline compared to the Tesla supercharger network that is usually in the ball park of 1/2 to 1/3 the cost of gasoline. Maybe in 10 years once the charging network has been built up things will be different but I was not willing to wait if there was already a viable alternative available.
