    Front License Plate Bracket Delete - Does it work?

    That is my dealer FCTP - We specifically requested NO front plate on my car. I will update once I get it.

    Found an ideal home charging solution!

    Not cheap though . . . $489 https://evannex.com/products/tesla-neocharge-smart-splitter?gclid=Cj0KCQiAj9iBBhCJARIsAE9qRtC5a3Oa2rjDh71O7Ey1kMwYx0rX081oyPMfBx-0oxkNLOfTHgBcCR4aAisJEALw_wcB

    Insight into why the Mach-E battery charge strategy is so conservative

    I HAVE watched them, and true he does DCFC sometimes up to 100%. Also true, there is a taper (even on Teslas) somewhere between 70-90% - maybe not the cliff people are seeing with the Mach E, but a definite taper. He also says many, many, times if you watch his videos that there is no need to...

    Ford . . . PLEASE consider making the Mach E compatible with Apple Car Key! (or give us TWO fobs)

    No attack, but I DID do that this morning knowing what you said above. Would not recognize the phone or unlock the door UNTIL I USED FordPass unlock on the FordPass screen. YMMV.

    Ford . . . PLEASE consider making the Mach E compatible with Apple Car Key! (or give us TWO fobs)

    Could not agree more Patrick. There needs to be standardization for this - not only for our cars, but for our home locks, lighting, and all the IOT stuff that is coming out and has come out. Consumers are baffled with an array of different systems and apps that depend on the type of phone or...

    Insight into why the Mach-E battery charge strategy is so conservative

    I'm not an electrical engineer or electrician, but my understanding is that they have different internal charging in the car (800 volt vs 400 volt I think is the terminology - I may be wrong). This may be an unpopular opinion with some of you, but I am not concerned about the "cliff" at 80%...

    Ford . . . PLEASE consider making the Mach E compatible with Apple Car Key! (or give us TWO fobs)

    BTW . . . wasn't there a Ford engineer who posted about wanting to know about these kinds of Sync issues at one point (not enough time to look it up right now) If anyone knows who that was, feel free to tag them in this thread. Unless of course they are now in the "Ford Witness Protection...

    Ford . . . PLEASE consider making the Mach E compatible with Apple Car Key! (or give us TWO fobs)

    Dear Ford people who are viewing the forum . . . please consider making the Mach E compatible with Apple Car Key. I know that your PAAK is a point of pride in your release of the Mach E. BUT . . . it is so inconsistent. I am driving my dealer's FCTP this week until my car arrives, and sometimes...

    Phone as a key for second user?

    I will wait and see when I get mine, but PAAK is really not too great on the loaner Mach E my dealer gave me this week. Total hit an miss if it works or not. And that is pretty disappointing, and leaves you feeling pretty insecure if you don't want to carry the fob. I haven't programmed a door...

    Columbus OH test drive

    So my dealer gave me their demo to drive this week until I pick mine up (Waikem in Massillon) and I beg to differ on that front plate. Hoping you are right on mine!

    From KC to Chicago

    Pretty much. There may be Ford employees with access too but your dealer would be your best bet.

    From KC to Chicago

    So . . . IF you can get the railcar number from your dealer, and the railcar may change in KC (mine did) you can track on Norfolk Southern - which is the rail line mine was on from Mexico, and then from KC to Ohio by calling their automated system. You call . . . 1-800-635-5768, select option 2...

    What is missing..

    💯 YES to all of this. Hopefully Ford will step up with OTA to give us the data some of us crave.
