  1. Dealer wanted to charge me $1400 for updates!

    I'm in the "If it ain't broke, don't fix it crowd." All I want from my car is for it to be reliable, and work as intended. That goes for the app also. How many times have we heard updates breaking PAAKs? As far as dealers charging to update non warranty related items, I feel that someone...
  2. Ford not accepting outside financing on Mach-e?

    Dealers are like the Soup Nazi from Seinfeld. You say the wrong thing, and its "No MachE for you."
  3. CCS connectors coming to Tesla Superchargers in the US says Elon Musk

    Tesla charge you base on time of day, not charging speed. Cheaper at night, more expensive mid day. Charging speed is determined by what type of supercharger they have installed at that particular location.

    Really? Are you really going to suggest that's what Ford meant? Made in AMERICA (just not that one.) By the way do you know what percentage parts in the Mach E is source from the US? Not very much.

    Once again, Tesla opens up factories where they sell cars. Makes sense, make cars where you sell them, cut back on expenses, be more responsive to local markets. There are TWO factories in the US. One in Fremont and the other in TEXAS. Not to mention the battery plant in Nevada. Then there's...
  6. Not a Fender Bender

    I Don't have any experience with a totaled MachE, but I had insurance payout on 2 totaled cars before. Both not my fault. The way that my insurance works is that it would look at the current market to see what it would cost to get you into a similar vehicle as yours. So with the market where...

    When I said singlehandedly, I meant it in terms of company. His companies singlehandedly revolutionized space travel and EVs. Often times its the visionary and leaders that makes things happen. They don't necessary do the dirty work, but without them, nothing gets accomplished. I would say...

    I judge the Man/company by what they do not what they say. So far tesla has made EVs a viable replacement for ICE cars, still has tones of downsides, but viable. He singlehandedly privatize space transport, no easy task. So as far as I'm concern, he can send out a tweet that may ruffle a...

    Unfortunately battery production is facing major constraints. There is only so much cobalt and lithium to go around. With all car manufactures clamoring to go EV, I don't see how they will all get the rare earth metals needed for the batteries.

    Ummm...no... Tesla original factory is in fremont CA. That makes cars for the US market and until recently also the european market. They opened up a factory in china to make cars for the Chinese market and european market. Then they just opened up the Texas Factory to increase US production...

    difference between coming to the market and making in sufficient quantity to matter. I hope ford succeed, we need more competition, but all these manufactures are finding that its easy to produce electric cars in mass quantities. Only so much raw material to go around. I just want Ford to put...

    Yeah, did you read that link? That's what's counted as bullying now? My God, people are weak. Some of the stuff he tweets are juvenile, but most reasonable people would not count that as bullying. Quotes from the articles you listed: "The coronavirus pandemic is dumb."...

    You say he attacks everyone. What attack? No really. Only one that comes to mind is calling the diver a pedo guy. But other than that, what vicious attacks has he done? How is he a bully?
  14. Why the hate?

    Most people don't care, its just an appliance to get you from point A to B. The hater tends to fall into a few groups. 1) Mustang worshippers (purist). Its sacrilegious to call a 4 door SUV a mustang. They do have a point. 2) ICE bros. All electric cars are bad and by extension their owners...

    Ture, the Leaf was the First mass market EV, but it was the the First EV that could replace an ICE car. The range was abysmal not to mention the battery degradation and lack of charging infrastructure. Tesla made it possible to own an EV as your only car hence making EV viable.

    500mil is a drop in the bucket for the big car company. Furthermore they lost faith and sold all their stocks before Tesla made it big. Toyota had no faith in EVs that they put all their money in hybrids and Hydrogen fuel cell. That's why they're so far behind in EVs. Anyways, I think the...
  17. Mach-E GTPE?

    I have both. If you're going electric, you really can't go wrong with either. I think the Model Y is more a more Mature product in the sense that tesla has worked out all the big bugs, while the Mach E still has some teething issues. Model Y is faster especially after 70. Its also more...

    Yes, Built for America, but not in America. You go Ford.
  19. After my wife shot down my vanity plate ideas...

    I have a GTPE, and I was thinking "GELDING."
  20. GTPE Max range?

    I think it really depends on what type of electrons you put in when you "fill up." for instance, when I use low Amps, I only get 200miles, but when I splurge for the good stuff and charge at the one of the name brand charging station, I get the full 250 range. YMMV. So fill up with good...
