  1. Mach-E First Edition Ride Along Review and Q&A from Site Member/Enthusiast

    >> Q: Wondering how noisy or quiet is the car? - >> A: VERY quiet. With all artificial sounds turned off, it was no louder than a Tesla. Well, we know Tesla is noisy at high speed with road and wind noise, say over 65mph. If MacheE is at the same noise level, I will be disappointed. Are you...
  2. Recall

    It is better than no recall but "fixing" everything through OTA.
  3. Decided to cancelled Mach E for a Model Y

  4. Decided to cancelled Mach E for a Model Y

    It's a fed tax credit, not a deduction from the vehicle purchase price. You pay full price when you buy the car, at which point the tax for $7500 is collected. Next year you get $7500 tax credit back, but the tax on $7500 are not returned back.

    Note that you are paying tax in most states for the $7500, making it reduced to around $7K.
  6. Decided to cancelled Mach E for a Model Y

    Take a look at build quality of MY: Not acceptable to me for a car over 50K.
  7. Video of Mach-E. Close up in MI. Skip ahead to 14:00.

  9. Tesla Drops Prices... Will Ford?

    Tesla will put LR RWD on market instead. I guess MY LR RWD will be below 45K. From Elon: "We have reduced pricing on Model Y LR dual motor & will offer a LR single motor Y in a few months, which improves affordability, while still keeping the product excellent"
  10. Submitted Orders # Tracking List [Enter Yours]

    Noticed that on the order confirmation page, the ford options 0.9% APR and 2500 incentive is not longer showing. Anyone else seeing the same?
  11. Demo of startup video / opening sequence graphics (on screens)

    It’s more like a screen saver. I will cry if it takes that long before I can move the vehicle.

  13. Tesla Drops Prices... Will Ford?

    I am going to cancel my premium ER RWD order and simply go for MY. The final of the two are almost the same now but MY has the advantage of SC , AP, better range, dual motor AWD, faster 0-60, and better efficiency. No mention that no wait for 7500 back. At the current price point of MY, to me...
