    26,068 Commute Miles: 1 Year Overview & Owner's Review

    Nice writeup. I have had mine 17 months and almost 41,000 miles with a similar commute - but mine is 90% highway to and from. I use the ICC and LKA on my drives and find it works fine. No BC yet on my Job1 car, and I am hoping my tires last until this winter when I am going to get some winter...

    It's official: Car washing in my city is now forbidden

    Well, that's disappointing to know. When he and Jerry Pournelle teamed up they did some great work. Bad news for the West. We visited Lake Powell last year and it was bad then, and worse now. As awful as winter can be here on the North Coast near Lake Erie, at least we don't have severe water...

    When Will Ford Give Us Pet Mode?!

    If you leave the car running and lock it with the pillar with the fob in the car, does the interior alarm activate? I know my wife often stays in the car when I run into a store and she locks the doors until I come back. How about remote start after you exit and turn the car off, or the car...

    BestEVMod white leather seat cover - Installed

    Yes, I saw that, but I don't want my Red Mach E mistaken for a Barbie Power Wheels. :D

    Votes needed for a Carplay fix! Waze on full screen Apple Carplay not properly working

    So you can run Waze and Apple Maps at the same time in CarPlay. You can have Apple Maps up on the screen, and have Waze set to alerts only and it will give you the alerts. Also, a speed trap on the way home, Waze warned me and Apple Maps was clueless.

    Votes needed for a Carplay fix! Waze on full screen Apple Carplay not properly working

    Yeah, I MUCH prefer Apple Maps. Waze is sometimes like looking at Minecraft, vs Apple Maps that looks more modern.

    Votes needed for a Carplay fix! Waze on full screen Apple Carplay not properly working

    Thanks. I may try running them both in parallel and see if Apple Maps has any use at this point. Seems odd you can only use it while actually navigating.

    Ok, I looked in Apple Maps, but don't see this. Can you point me to where in the settings you find it?

    If either Apple Maps or Google Maps crowdsourced speed traps I would switch in a heartbeat - objects on the road is another good feature of Waze. I drive 45 miles each way to work each day, and find those features necessary.

    Votes needed for a Carplay fix! Waze on full screen Apple Carplay not properly working

    Just wondering if this is persistent, or if you quit Waze and restart it if it goes away. I use Waze constantly(for speed trap reports) and there are numerous times where Waze gets flaky and acts erratically. I have even had the arrow going the opposite way I am traveling. I have seen this issue...

    It looks like the black ones have blue stitching . . . which would look odd in my Rapid Red Mach E that has seats with red stitching. Do you make them with Red stitching?

    Electrify America Porsche Taycan Trip Report (and a Humble Request)

    I have seen Leafs several times on my road trips. Looks like the golden age of empty chargers is coming to a close with all the "Free Charging" at EA cars. I have not road tripped since last Fall, but it sounds like things are changing rapidly.

    Love this Car - at 36,000 miles

    38,106 on mine and I feel the same way. But have to admit my wife likes her Corsair PHEV better.

    Electrify America Porsche Taycan Trip Report (and a Humble Request)

    So I should use the 150 and “hang out” in case a Leaf shows up, and move my car if they do, and not use the 350 just in case someone rolls up in a Taycan so they can charge faster? 🙄

    Electrify America Porsche Taycan Trip Report (and a Humble Request)

    So what do you do if the only two open stations are a 150 that also has a ChadEmo plug and the 350? Personally, I would leave the ChadEmo open for those who have no other choice. At least that is what I have done on my trips. The 800 architecture cars can still charge on that - the Nissan Leaf...

    I can't believe the repair costs. Watch weight in the rear.

    I haven't trusted those since the day I saw them and immediately lowered my load floor. Besides that, with the rear mat, the mat fits much better with the floor lowered. Sorry this happened to you.

    Blue Cruise Mismatch Parts

    Interesting. My car is a FE built on 1/7/2021, and has a VIN in the 7000's. I am in the EA program but no Bluecruise. It was stuck at a previous OTA, and currently it says it has tried to load 2.7.3 with several failures over the last month, but the car says the latest update was 2.7.3. 🤷‍♂️ I...

    HELP! I Can’t Get My Phone as Key “PAAK” to pair

    I think I did chime in somewhere, but . . . Just quitting the app did not work for me. I had to go into the Fordpass app and DELETE the key I had been using with my phone, and set it all up again. Once I did that, PAAK worked fine, and now I just have to quit and restart the app periodically to...
