Re: Hello, should I return my car?

The 315 WH per mile energy economy figure onlybimmers got on the returned 2014 model was very close to the EPA rated 320 WH/mile, so that wasn't the problem. The 50 mile range was though. I'd get that on my 2016 FFE when I ran the heater in the winter, but it's too low for normal driving. Must have ...

About a year ago my focus was in an accident and they were going to total it out - until they realized that they couldn't just cut me a check for a 2012 since it had the battery upgrade.
Not sure why the insurance gave a rat's patoot about what battery it had in it. To them, a 2012 is a 2012.

Re: 2014 FFE with 33.5kWh battery pack for sale by owner

Good car there, lucky you with the 33kWH battery! I guess it's the one time it payed for the original battery to fail. Nice! How many miles on the new battery so far? I just traded in a '16 FFE at 34k miles, 5 years total, with $4k in hail damage, and the dealership credited me with $7,900 on a new ...

Re: "Key Not Detected" can strand you, Solution Here

so this has me a little stumped. Actually, this specific problem, by a poster with 1 post, is running up against the strict anti-Theft security Ford has built-in to it's vehicles to prevent a stranger from hopping in somebody's Ford & taking off with it! If the poster has a real legitimate problem,...

Re: "Key Not Detected" can strand you, Solution Here

I have a 2015 FFE and I read the manual but the “No Key Detected” still on display. The 12VDC battery died and now it’s fully charged, reading 12.8VDC. Both passive remote keys not working, tried placing in the middle console but NO LUCK. Please HELP. Thank you. PS. There’s no round cover panel on ...

Re: Considering giving up the fight

Heima, yes I think Forscan will work, and other brands of apps might not. Anti_Climax, being near Phoenix with little A/C can't be good. Hard to diagnose of course, but this is the interweb, so I'll give it a shot: Sounds like an obstruction in the refrigerant lines is reducing cooling ability. Or a...

Re: Considering giving up the fight

If you could custom load the sound, I think it has to sound like an engine for a blind person, or person looking the other way, to perceive it as a vehicle. I'd be in favor of sounding like the low-frequency rumble of a V8 maybe. That would require a sub-woofer but worth it probably. Right now my n...

Re: Considering giving up the fight

I put $500 down on a Mach-E GT this morning. Anyone want to buy a white 2018 FFE with $29k on it ? Tuck that "$29k" safely in the glovebox, not on the roof or hood please, & I'll buy it for $29k. :P You've got plenty of time. The GT won't be out til Sept. '21. Your reservation may be a month or two...

Re: Considering giving up the fight

I gave up the fight Monday. After 5 years of a 2016 Focus Electric, I got a new 2020 Leaf SV 149-mile range version (215 mile range available for more $$ buckaroos). Same color, very similar to the Ford's Kona Blue. New Leafs (Leaves?) are stylish, not ugly like the bug-eyed 1st gen ones. I had some...

Re: "Key Not Detected" can strand you, Solution Here

I've had the same problem actually, however I was stuck and didn't know what to do Few knew about placing the key FOB in the bottom of the center console. From now on, especially with a 5 year old 12v battery in there, I'm going to put one of those small jump-start batteries in the small compartmen...
