    RAPID RED METALLIC Mach-E Club

    Yes, I like them.. They are almost 3 inches tall, but do not block visibility. And they allow me to roll down the windows an inch or more.

    Have you ever owned a Mustang

    Sold my 2002 GT yesterday to someone less than half my age who will actually drive it. I only put 1000 miles on it in the last 5 years. He appreciates classics!

    Rt 1 vs Premium

    5 weeks and 1200 miles with the CaRt1: I do NOT miss: - 2002 Mustang GT convertible, just sold it yesterday. Love my Mach E! - power lift gate. Manual hatch is perfectly balanced and much quicker on open/close. - B&O sound. The sound system sounds fine and I mostly listen to books anyway. -...

    I test drove a ID.4 today (my comparison vs Mach-E)

    When I go from D to R, my eyes are going to the big screen to see the reverse camera. I am not looking at the dash. Fortunately, I rarely have to go from D to R, I am such an excellent and skillful parking expert. Going from P to R - no problem: just one detent click CW. Going from P to D...

    Home Level 2 Charger Issues

    Sorry, if this was answered in one of the earlier 500 posts in this thread: Has the Dealer reflashed the charging control module? My dealer told me there are 10 to 12 individual control modules that operate the car. All of my control modules were "updated" the day I picked up my car, by the...

    Home Level 2 Charger Issues

    On the advice of another forum member, I started reading this thread over again. I realized something: At my house, I have a whole house power conditioner, surge protector, circuit monitor direct wired on my incoming 240 V power. Within a couple of months after installation, there was a red...

    1500 Mile Delivery Road Trip Home In a New Mach-E

    I agree, AHNC. I will take a look at that link. I think charging at home is painless and brainless compared to gas stations. But, on a road trip, requires planning and contingencies, and,....time. For many of my friends and family, for the last few years, for 2 car families, I have...

    1500 Mile Delivery Road Trip Home In a New Mach-E

    For those of us who have easy home access to 240V Level 2 charging, charging is quicker and easier than using a gas pump, for daily driving. Yes, DCFC with EA is a problem, but 95% of all my charging is at home, at night, while I sleep. Takes a few seconds to plug in, and a few seconds more in...

    Opinions on Kona EV

    Bottom line, I like my Kona Electric, I like my Mach E. If all I used my EV for is commuting, the less $$ and more efficient Kona would have an edge (both cars have $7500 tax credit). For occasional longer trips, turning heads, and making parking lot friends, the Mach E has a big edge. Why do...

    Opinions on Kona EV

    You are correct, so let me clarify, then. The Kona lane assist in mine is only a warning that you have crossed the edge lines on the road. If you don't need that warning, turn it off. The Mach E has active lane keeping, which I like.

    Opinions on Kona EV

    Right about the torque steer under hard acceleration and the short space behind the 2nd seats in my 2018 Ultimate. But, in many ways the tech and controls are better than my Mach E. The lane warning can be easily shut off, right there in the manual. I leave my seats down all the time since I...
