    Survey: High Voltage Battery Junction Box issues?

    The opinions and emotions about the failures around the High Voltage Battery Junction Box are running high (and it's understandably frustrating for people who have experienced it) and it's difficult to tease out the incident rate and other facts about this. There are also several running...

    3700 miles and a I have a MAJOR problem.

    We picked up our Grabber Blue California Route 1 Mustang on 24 February. We've had it for two months and have put 3700 miles on it. I've now realized I have a major problem with this car that I haven't had with any other car I've owned. I am making way too many excuses to drive it. We...

    Had to drive the Tacoma today... Immediately missed the Mustang.

    Most days I really enjoy driving my Tacoma. But I've only driven it a few miles since we took delivery of the Mustang. Today I had to take the Tacoma because my partner had the Mustang. I sure missed the Mustang. So many enjoyable things about driving it compared with an ICE. Instant...

    Grabber Blue Route 1 in the Snow

    My partner doesn't like flashy. We switched from Cyber Orange to Grabber Blue to reduce the "flash." But even the GB is pretty flashy in her eyes. This photo, though, convinced her that we got the right color.

    You think you have range anxiety?

    My buddy with the Model X 75D just shared this with me (and gave me permission to share). The Model X 75D official EPA range is 259 miles. My friend charged to 85% with a distance to go of 152 miles from home; 85% of 259 miles is about 220 miles. They arrived with 13 miles to spare.

    Main, large screen reboot while driving?

    My search-fu isn't doing the job tonight, so I apologize if this has been discussed ad nauseam I guess I just couldn't find the right terms. On our road trip, after about five hours on the road, the main, large screen just randomly rebooted. We were listening to our audiobook. It cut off, the...

    One Pedal in icy conditions...

    My partner had to take the Mustang out for an unavoidable appointment this morning. The roads had iced over last night. We live on a relatively steep hill. She was using one-pedal drive and found that the one pedal drive provides far more control over the vehicle on icy roads than she's...

    Google Maps Notification: Battery Low, find EV Charger Soon

    My partner got a weird notification from Google Maps while on a short trip today. We didn't capture it, though, so can't give a screen grab or perfect repeat of what it said. Basically they drove for about an hour, had plenty of charge remaining, changed their mind about their final...

    Adventures of our Grabber Blue Space Pony...

    When the Mustang Mach-E was introduced, I tried to convince my partner that we "needed" one. She was unconvinced. Then the F-150 Lighting was introduced and we had just come home from a camping trip with the Tacoma. I reserved the F-150 Lightning with her pretty enthusiastic agreement. Then July...

    Mustang v Model X

    A buddy brought his Model X 75D over for a couple of comparison rides and lookie-loos. Side-by-side, the X is (obviously) bigger, and it really makes the Mustang look more like a car than an SUV. I did not get interior pictures of the X. The very first thing I noticed when I got into the X...

    Ford Financing Down?

    Is anyone else seeing errors like the following? I got the email from Ford that it's time to finalize purchase of my Mustang, which was taken off the truck at the dealer today and which I plan to drive down to purchase tomorrow. I would like to do as much of the paperwork ahead of time...

    Please post your vehicle weight information!

    I've been trying to find specs published by Ford, but have failed. So, I'm asking for help. I'd like to collect information from your safety compliance certification labels. Would any of you who have received your vehicles be willing to post the following information? It should be available on...

    Rivian R1T

    We're on a short weekend jaunt and came across a Rivian charging. I parked my Tacoma next to it to get an idea of its size, etc. The R1T's length is about 8 inches less than the Tacoma (sure, you can read the specs, but it's nice to see it in reality). The height is only a bit taller, and it's a...

    The waiting...and a comparison.

    I've been trying to figure out what all of this waiting reminded me of... Then today it hit me. In late 2000, Toyota announced the first mass-produced, hybrid-electric vehicle for sale in the United States. We tried to get on the waiting list at several dealers in our town, but could not...

    Factory Workshop Manual?

    No, I'm not asking if someone will give me one. I am wondering if anyone has purchased access through the Motorcraft Service website and been able to download or otherwise keep the manual after they paid for it. I am willing to pay the $20-$25 to get the 72-hour access if I can keep the...

    Mach-E in the winter...

    If your mustang is getting less mileage in the winter, or if the range estimate is worse than you want, the vehicle is probably defective. Please sign the title over to someone near you who has not yet received theirs. You can get your refund from Ford. <sorry, not sorry, I'm in a mood.>

    How much have you changed your normal routes because of access to chargers?

    I have a regular, 7-8 hour route between northern Arizona and the Los Angeles area. I drive it several times a year at a minimum and up to more than once a month depending on work. As I'm waiting for my Mustang to be built, I'm looking at the A Better Route Planner app and evaluating route...

    Finally getting solar for charging my Mustang...

    The crew is installing our solar system today. I will likely add additional panels and batteries over the next few years. I've been wanting to do this for about 20 years and have finally saved up enough to afford both the electric car and the electric power plant. We will have about 7 hours of...

    2022 X-Plan pricing updated

    I haven't seen an update on the forum about this, so here's a discussion starter. The 2022 X-Plan pricing (and presumably the other plans) has been updated.

    Another ID.4 vs Mach-E thread

    I've driven two ID.4s and I finally got to put my butt into the seat of a Mustang today and drive it for a bit. The difference in ride quality is staggering. The Mustang is where it is supposed to be when it's supposed to be there. The ID.4 has body roll like it's a boat. Pulling across traffic...
