  1. For everyone saying the Mach E recalls are ridiculous...

    If Toyota described their issue as , and their remedy as , then yes, I would agree that this is as ridiculous as Ford's recall. In short, lots of cars have 1st-year issues. It's how you fix them that counts
  2. Safety Recall 22S41 - 2021-2022 Mach E - HVBJB Recall [high voltage battery main contactors may overheat]

    Or could be that the 5/25+ cars are unaffected because they have sufficiently-specced contactors, and therefore don't need the software update to ship
  3. Safety Recall 22S41 - 2021-2022 Mach E - HVBJB Recall [high voltage battery main contactors may overheat]

    Sorry if this was posted in this thread already, but do you have a link about that situation?
  4. Safety Recall 22S41 - 2021-2022 Mach E - HVBJB Recall [high voltage battery main contactors may overheat]

    Isn't the failsafe the physical letter they're sending to owners?
  5. Safety Recall 22S41 - 2021-2022 Mach E - HVBJB Recall [high voltage battery main contactors may overheat]

    You were not 'quoting' a document by Ford, you were reading a vaguely-worded Ford document and conjuring meaning from it. Ford's NHTSA notice says the remedy is to "monitor contactor temperature and intelligently reduce battery power to prevent damage to the contactor." It doesn't say how...
  6. Safety Recall 22S41 - 2021-2022 Mach E - HVBJB Recall [high voltage battery main contactors may overheat]

    My point is that it's not every time a contactor gets hot that it fails. Ford admits as such in the recall: But the solution, rather than to replace the part they admit isn't robust, is to throttle whenever the contactor gets above a certain temperature. Is that threshold temperature one that...
  7. Safety Recall 22S41 - 2021-2022 Mach E - HVBJB Recall [high voltage battery main contactors may overheat]

    Sorry to say, but you're speculating and don't have a clue. Why are you assuming the software "fix" only kicks in to reduce power right at the point of failure?
  8. HV Battery Removal From Mustang Mach E GT - Pics & Process (From Weber State University Training Boot Camp)

    Very nice writeup and pics. As I think you alluded to, for the first pic, man that does not look safe
  9. North Carolina seeks to ban or penalize free charging

    Wish the title was more accurate, i.e. "Three North Carolina State Representatives" does not equal "North Carolina". Still think the bill is dumb, and someone should introduce one requiring North Carolina state representatives to disclose in their ads how often they use public toilets in the...
  10. DRIVE MODES HAVE DISAPPEARED STUCK IN WHISPER MODE / AND CAMERA IS ALMOST NON EXISTENT

    Please tell me you meant May and it hasn't really been 2.5 months since you've had your car
  11. MME vs. the 2023 Kia EV9

    Isn't that what everyone said about the Plaid? Granted, totally different companies
  12. E-Heat ... always on ???

    This is my fourth biggest gripe with the car, that it decides to randomly turn on e-heat or AC as it sees fit, not as I tell it. When it's 65 in the morning, and I have a five minute drive, no, you don't need to waste energy heating my cabin to 70, I'm perfectly comfortable. Really wish the...
  13. Ask Ford to add a easily accessible lift gate button

    Not a super convenience (I'd probably rather have max defrost there still if it was one or the other), but it'd be nice for if you want to open the trunk for someone running out to your car, or even for yourself so you don't have to wait by the back the few seconds it takes to fully open. Or so...
  14. Rear license plates... a blunder?

    Imagine being upset that Ford didn't put the American flag on a throw-away card (if anything, that's more in line with U.S flag code).
  15. Dashcam mode/sentry mode coming?

    I'd be fine plugging a usb key into one of the console ports, although ya, slightly unfortunate. I wouldn't mind the drain, especially if the car had a "disable sentry mode?" prompt like it does for alarms upon exit so I could only enable it when needed (e.g. crowded parking lots). True, but...
