    Vehicle For Sale 2016 FFE possible battery donor for sale

    Hello BBsprint, I was initially asking $4800, but it is negotiable. Where are you located? This car is driveable with the 60 mile range expected of an 8 year old BEV. It may not be worth it if you have to ship the car or even drive it long distance. Unless of course, you have a lot of spare...

    Free adapter?

    The NACS to CCS adapted would be useless for any FFE older than the late 2017-2018 FFE with DC fast charging. The 2012-2016 FFE's only have 6kW AC charging which cannot use the Tesla Supercharging system.

    Would you buy another BEV?

    YEP! Replaced my 2016 FFE with a Tesla Model Y Long Range. Freaking awesome car. And I can tow my motorcycle with it! FFE for sale on this website.

    Vehicle For Sale 2016 FFE possible battery donor for sale

    I am selling my 2016 FFE silver with leather interior. It was hit mildly on both sides and was deemed a total loss by the insurance company. That was February 2023 and I retained ownership with a salvage title and have been driving it regularly since. It drives fine. The HV battery is fine. My...

    All Focus are discontinued for BEVs in Europe. Will the Focus Electric come back?

    Hello Blajanfire, The answer is, I really doubt it. The FFE was a compliance car built on an ICE chassis. Nobody today would dare invest in producing a BEV that wasn't purpose designed from the ground up. I really enjoy my FFE's. They were a good low-cost BEV start for me and a joy to drive, but...

    FFE is gone

    Hey campfamily, I didn't factory reset my 2014 FFE before lease returning it. I continued to track it to various warehouses and storage facilities. Then one day I looked it up, and it was in Amman Jordan. Apparently a lot of FFE's ended up in Jordan. There is quite an FFE following there. PS I...

    '8 year/100K mile Bttry PK & Unique Elctrc Cmpnents' covers?

    PS. The charge port light ring was replaced under warranty on my 2014 FFE during the lease period for the first quadrant LED failure. Looks like that quadrant light is the second most prevalent failure next to 12 volt battery discharging.

    '8 year/100K mile Bttry PK & Unique Elctrc Cmpnents' covers?

    Thanks folks. I got my answer. The included warranties, plus the Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) warranties will be enough. Here is what I posted in the dealership section: Well, I finally read enough of the 3rd party service contract exclusions to find my answer. And it's, HELL NO!!! And now I...

    Dealer sold 3rd party service warranty purchase advice

    Well, I finally read enough of the 3rd party service contract exclusions to find my answer. And it's, HELL NO!!! And now I am fairly upset. Upon fine print reading I came across line #34 in the 'What this service contract does NOT cover' section. 'If your vehicle is powered entirely by a...

    Dealer sold 3rd party service warranty purchase advice

    Need advice about anyone having a good experience with a 3rd party service warranty on the FFE. Just bought an 18 month old car, and trying to figure out if the included warranties are enough. Original 3 yr/36K B to B, and the Certified Pre-Owned additional warranties included in purchasing a...

    '8 year/100K mile Bttry PK & Unique Elctrc Cmpnents' covers?

    Hello, I'm a former 2014 FFE leasee who returned the lease in Aug of 2017. That car now resides in Amman, Jordan. So, I just bought a 2016 FFE that had an in-service date of 5-4-2017. It still has 18 months on the 3 yr/36K mile B to B warranty. Finance manager did the hard-sell 3rd party...

    Focus Electrics in Jordan

    Hi there! I have basically the same story. I returned my leased 2014 FFE in August of 2017. I was able to track it due to MFM still being tied to my phone and active. By the end of August, it sat in a wholesaler's warehouse in Rio Linda Ca. (just north of Sacramento, Ca.) until about October...

    Ford lease end options

    In California, for a 2014 FFE, the only lease choice offered to me was 10500mi per year for 31500 miles total. Mine goes back 8/17/17 unless they negotiate the buyout way down. There are (6) 2013 and 2014 FFE's on my local craigslist for between $9k and $11K. My buyout is listed as $15500. Model...

    Installation Error | SYNC Software Update

    NightHawk, Thank you for the good suggestions. Luckily, from reading on this forum, I thought to buy one of those compact lithium jump start batteries and that is what got me through this bout with the 12V battery. I knew the 12v is only charging when the car is on, but it has worked fine for...

    Installation Error | SYNC Software Update

    Thanks All, It WAS a coincidence about the Sync update and the 12v battery issue. So, they said it was the battery becoming defective, and they replaced it under warranty. It seems fine now. About the firmware update, I think I'll leave it alone as long as it continues to function correctly...

    Installation Error | SYNC Software Update

    Thanks Wattsup. Is the Sync update considered a MFT update? It was specifically called Sync. But yes, Sync is just the bells and whistles in the cabin. Not the ECM. Your probably right. But what a coincidence! My FFE has had a recall since I got it. Even though it has been to the dealer several...

    Installation Error | SYNC Software Update

    Update on this subject. I finally downloaded the free zip utility '7zip' to unzip the 'Sync my ride' files for the software update. I did so and transferred to a blank 4gb USB drive. The update installed correctly without a problem. I received and sent Ford Sync the confirmation file it writes...

    New from ATL

    Welcome! I wish I could buy my 2014 after lease for the $7500 you paid. The range also works for me.
