My situation is this I am retired, located in Phoenix, have some control re the time of day I would have to use the car, charging at home is no problem either the voltage 120 or 240, a range of 60 miles in a day with the air conditioning on would work fine, I would be buying a used car and would expect to drive approx. 5000 miles a year. It is important that the air conditioning would cool the car down pretty quickly, if it takes 10 minutes that would exceed the travel time in most cases, I could cool the car down before leaving the house but the return trip would be the problem. The car would be parked in the open.
My concerns are what do out of warranty repairs cost, and will most of the Ford dealers service these cars. It seems like most of the cars I see for sale are at dealers which are nation wide and I assume they cannot repair any portion which is unique to the electric car regardless of the warranty they might offer. Finally what is your best guess re service 5 years from now, is a failure of a circuit board going to total the car?
Thank You for any information you can give me.
