I've been keeping the spreadsheet linked in the "Stop Safely Now Stats" thread up to date with the latest reports here:

Granted not everyone who has had the SSN issue(s) have reported in on the forums here.

Ha! I also have a Black 2013 but with 400 miles and am hoping that all continues to be well. So far I've not had a single issue, even with Sync! Everything has worked flawlessly. I seem to remember that a lot of people were having issues just after 1100 miles or so. I'm betting they gave extra care to the black colored cars because they knew that was the only color the cool people would pick.

Mine is a 2013 FFE purchased new January 2013 with 5200 miles so far and no major issues. Overall, the car has been a dream.

That said, I've had about four "yellow wrench" (YW) occurrences, but they always go away (and I don't see another for weeks) by turning the car off/on. And, whenever I've performed a Vehicle Health Check (immediately after), nothing wrong is ever reported. Looking back, I'm pretty sure all of my YWs have happened when driving at freeway speeds and adjusting the cruise control (up/down one notch, for example). Basically, just as I press the steering wheel control, the YW appears. So, for now, I am going to chalk them up to (best situation) a software bug or (worst situation) some kind of "real" issue that happens only randomly and rarely.

---

Edit: I have no idea why I abbreviated yellow wrench as YT before. :lol: YW!

2013, ~4900 miles since Feb 2. I'd get you the exact mileage, but I'm too lazy to go outside and MFM seems to think I've gone ~800 miles farther than the truth.

1. Stop Safely Now: once, but it was self-inflicted. Ran out of charge a few miles from home.
2. Other major malfunction: Speeding ticket last Tuesday (doh!). But that was pilot error, just like #1.

Despite the various SW glitches and the HVAC fan control crapping out due to a bent pin, I absolutely love my FFE and appreciate the great service and sales at the local Ford dealership. No regrets.

Edit: Make that 4898 oil-free miles... thanks for the tip, WattsUp!!!

No need to get up... your current actual mileage is displayed at myfordmobile.com in the "Vehicle Info" tab in the "My Car" section.

You are right, the mileage shown in the "My Driving" section is totally exaggerated. Mine is about +1K miles off.

I've got about 1300 miles and going on 3 months on my 2013 and I haven't had a single issue so far! I'm using 110V for charging (2x/wk) and usually only driving around town.

2013 with 6100 miles and no major problems.
Owned since Sept 2012.
The only issue is the car woun't connect to Sync services. This is most likely due to a phone incompatability issue.

2013 that I picked up at the end of February. 1,977 miles on it without a single issue. I drove 84 miles on one charge last weekend to see how it would do pushing it to the limit of the range according to the GOM. I made it to my destination with the low battery warning on. I think this car is fantastic and enjoy it every time I drive it.
