    Out of Spec: Should you buy the IONIQ 5 or the Mustang Mach-E?

    I was waiting to order an i4 40e (wonderful suspension and handling) until they dropped adaptive cruise control on the 40e. That and the loss of the fed tax credit after 12/31/2022 killed the deal for me. Maybe in the future. It's a great vehicle IMHO.

    Seat Material Cracking

    We had a 2001 Miata for 12 years with the top down 95% of the time and nary a single issue with the leather seats. Just sayin'.

    Fords new Ad bashing Elon is not a good look for EVs owners and perspective buyers.

    Our Premium is scheduled to be built next week. And I've owned a number of Ford vehicles over the years although not recently. As someone who has a 2021 MY (that had zero fit and finish issues BTW), I can admire the company and yet have a much less positive opinion of Musk. Oh and I thought...

    You posting lists the charger as $1 so it's misleading.

    Grizzl-E Classic Level 2 charger just died

    I too was considering getting a Grizzlie Classic once we got our Mach e. This does give me pause. Is anyone aware of a site that objectively reviews EV chargers? And what's the warranty on it? The other thing to consider is that some credit cards come with an automatic doubling of the OEM...

    New vehicle delivery steps: Suggestions on paint protection

    Thanks Joe. Griot's high ph cleaner seems to need to be applied with a foam cannon and I'm trying to avoid going down that rabbit hole of compulsiveness ;-) so I'll try the Optum cleaner diluted then Griot's then proceed with their iron removal spray.

    50,000 mile owner update. Quite an impressive vehicle overall.

    Well if the power's out at a charging station then gas stations within that power outage are also down as they need electricity for their fuel pumps.

    New vehicle delivery steps: Suggestions on paint protection

    Yes I was going to tell the dealer just that. Good suggestion about having the ppf installer check out the car first. Thanks.

    New vehicle delivery steps: Suggestions on paint protection

    Hi all, We'll be taking delivery of our Mach e Premium around the end of October and I'm planning on doing the initial cleanup of the exterior rather than having the dealership do it. Here are the steps I'm planning and I also have a question about the need to use "iron fallout remover" before...

    It’s a G string -- Ford rear bumper protector installed

    Pardon my ignorance. I didn't know (or hadn't remembered) getting points for the purchase of the Mach e. What can you use them for?

    Sun Shade that fits Mach-E like a glove - Costco Solar Shade ($11.99)

    Living in sunny NM for many years I've used sunshades on all our vehicles as they really reduce head absorption to the interior when it's sunny.
