I'm sorry I don't have details as I haven't done it yet but my dealer said Ford did ask the dealers to process the purchase with the current invoice/pricing less xplan if applicable and then they will send me a check later for the protection.
I would say the "we owe" should include something...
At first I read this like huh?
But yeah, you buying the car the way you did really just ensured they didn't make any money on it...so you hurt them as much as they realistically could have been hurt by actually buying the car from them.
Unconventional, but well done.
And those dealers...
It's not "bound" in the bar. The rubber is moving with the sway bar. It's twisting and flexing with the bar with the softer inner rubber allowing that flex.
It's definitely not acting like a leaf spring. Take off the endlinks and pull on the bar. You'll get it to move.
It's designed that way. The bushing is made up of at least two different types of rubber. The outer is firm and stiff. The inner which is affixed to the bar is a softer rubber and flexes with the bar.
I can see the rubber softening a bit over time but I don't think that rubber is adding any...
I did see a picture that showed on a more recently train there was at least one rail car that was open with an F150 and an MME with busted up nose damage like they broke what was securing them to the car.
I'm a former autocross/hpde driver so I put a huge emphasis on how the car drives at the limit. While the mme is high sprung and under dampened the ev6 is the exact opposite. Softer spring rates and way too soft dampers for sporty driving. Sloppy is how I describe the cars behavior at the limit.
Yup same here. My dealership is 8 miles from the railyard. Car's been there since 9/15. My reservation page still says 9/20-9/26 but when I called today they said they are showing it's pushed to next week.
Gasoline Example: 40mpg @ $3/gallon. = .075/mile
Electric Example: 3mi/kwh @ .23/kwh = .076/mile (not accounting for losses)
Yup, gasoline could be cheaper. If I had to pick between the fun factor of a 40mpg vehicle though and my EV? EV...any day...all day...every day.
Ok...but he doesn't have an equivalent mme...he has a GT. As do I....and compared to that it sucks. Like really bad. It isn't necessarily just outright speed. The suspension is sloppy, the steering is not variable and the throttle mapping is way more lazy. It just isn't as fun to drive and...
Haha, funny. My wife is currently driving my GT while I'm driving the GT-Line AWD EV6. I hate it...it's soft, it's slow, it's tight, small, drives and handles more like a caddy, slow steering, cheap looking/feeling interior and the worst, absolutely horrible sound system. It just feels cheap...
They may look close but their dimensions are totally different so it's unlikely much could be shared.
Kinda crazy to believe cars that have totally different wheel bases and vastly different weights could share something like suspension components. That's just out there...
