    BlueCruise Easily Fooled

    Prior to this split-second swerve towards the jersey wall, there was zero indication of "bad markings" on the road". In other words, the car did not act funny prior to almost turning 90-degrees at 75mph into the wall. It all happened in a split-second. It was much like if you blew out a tire...

    BlueCruise Easily Fooled

    You ask a fair question, but you must understand that we were at highway speeds (70-75mph) and this all happened in a very jarring split second or two. It wasn't like it casually veered towards the jersey wall or anything. It just suddenly jerked the vehicle nose towards the wall, then all of...

    BlueCruise Easily Fooled

    Not sure. A few years ago, I had a Lincoln MKZ with lane-keep, but I never had an issue like this. Of course, that feature made you keep your hands on the wheel at all times, so I was never even mildly off my guard. The expectation of BC is to keep at the ready, but this means different things...

    BlueCruise Easily Fooled

    Again, both sides of the road lane were painted and provided with reflectors. I’m an engineer friend, I understand more about this tech than most. Reserve your personal judgement for others , please.

    BlueCruise Easily Fooled

    Oh, there are very clearly painted lines, plus those imbedded reflectors about every 4-5 feet apart. There is no mistaking the alignment of this 2-year old roadway. It’s just that there was the extra line in the middle of the lane from some careless painter.

    BlueCruise Easily Fooled

    We were driving north at 70mph on I-15 through Las Vegas (by Strip) last evening and set the BlueCruise. All was great until we got past Tropicana. Apparently, some dumbass had recently driven in this lane and dumped a 3-mile long spill of white paint. It was very subtle, but got more noticeable...

    A huge AMEN on that last part Rick.

    403 Miles as my Range Indication

    Has I think it’s probably a combo of warm climate, non-freeway driving, the fact that many of the roads are under construction in LV (ie slow crawls) and possibly having to stop at every flipping red light along the way. Oh, and I’ve also notice that a few ICE drivers are trying to “save gas”...

    403 Miles as my Range Indication

    Not a typo. I’m charging once a month.

    403 Miles as my Range Indication

    😅. Honest to God, I’m not a Granny driver. In fact, I probably drive too damn fast and way too aggressive off the line. I’m pretty much like every other crazy Las Vegas driver. That said, my drive to work and back is a lot of stop and go, and no freeway time at all. My only guess is that my...

    403 Miles as my Range Indication

    I’m getting anywhere from high 3’s to low 5’s.

    403 Miles as my Range Indication

    Is anyone else getting this many miles in on a full charge? I was only getting 305 or so when I received the car, but it has steadily increased to just past 400 since then (9 months).

    FINALLY Getting Recalls Done

    I’m happy to share that I got my car back today. 1 whole month to fix the glass recalls. Glass appears fine and now FINALLY have BlueCruise. That said, the installers broke my overhead glasses holder stop, so it won’t close. Dealer said they would order a replacement but will probably take 6-8...

    FINALLY Getting Recalls Done

    I finally got through to the dealer today and they said my car may be done tomorrow, or Monday, or later next week. How’s that for being definitive! I just hope I don’t get the car back and the glass job is crappy. If so, I wonder what recourse there is for this. The dealer didn’t do the work...

    FINALLY Getting Recalls Done

    Yes, they did the same with me. That’s why I had to wait 4 months to get the recall started…. So they could assure the glass was in stock. They lied!! Also, you can excuse Ford, but they do promulgate this dealer system, so they are not without fault.

    FINALLY Getting Recalls Done

    In just a few days, Gaudin Ford in Las Vegas will have had my MME in their possession for 1 whole month. This was to do the glass recalls, which they decided to send out to a 3rd party. The 3rd party (a local auto glass shop) apparently broke the windshield taking it out, and has been waiting...

    How Long Before People Accept The Mach-E As A Mustang?

    I also own a 2018 EcoBoost Convertible and used the Mustang Club of America x-plan discount to buy my 21 MME. Looking through the latest monthly MCA magazine, they have started allowing MME’s at the shows and will soon have a dedicated class for them at all sanctioned shows. So, it appears to me...

    Dropped Off for Windshield/Pano Recall - Interesting Dealer Comment

    I dropped mine off today and they said 2 weeks since it needed to go out to a “glass shop”. That sounded odd, but that’s not the odd part. The odd part is that they had promised a loaner vehicle since the downtime was so long. However, when I went into the Enterprise desk (inside the...

    FINALLY Getting Recalls Done

    Thx TSO. They at least offered a loaner car from their in-house Enterprise, which is usually a Chevy or some crap-mobile, so I guess that’s something.

    FINALLY Getting Recalls Done

    After 4 months of foot-dragging excuses by my dealer (LAS - Gaudin Ford), I’m finally getting in there on Monday (4/25) to get my 2 glass recalls done. They said they need the vehicle (21 Rte1) for 2-3 weeks since they send it out to a glass shop. I also requested software update (no BC yet)...
