    I put down a deposit for EV6. Don't hate me!

    Was the dealership able to do anything for you with respect to solidifying an order so you'll still get the tax credit on the EV6?

    Love it! Congratulations, one of the best EVs out there IMO.

    Great time to ask Google who the closest tow provider is.

    Dealer IOUs for Price Protection

    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...

    Can't deal with the bouncy ride anymore after two weeks with the Mach-E. What do I do?

    roughly 5.86 degrees of free rotation from the center axial point at rest with a progressive increase in resistance as force applied beyond. Did you really ask that question?

    Bad Dealer Experience, Purchased out of Spite.

    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...

    Can't deal with the bouncy ride anymore after two weeks with the Mach-E. What do I do?

    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.

    Can't deal with the bouncy ride anymore after two weeks with the Mach-E. What do I do?

    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...

    Sent Back to Factory Before Delivery???????

    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.

    Sent Back to Factory Before Delivery???????

    Wtf! Why would they ship the whole car back versus just shipping a part to the dealer?

    I put down a deposit for EV6. Don't hate me!

    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.

    8/29/22 Build Week Gang

    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.

    It soon will be cheaper to drive my Ford Maverick hybrid than my MME

    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.

    I put down a deposit for EV6. Don't hate me!

    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...

    I put down a deposit for EV6. Don't hate me!

    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...

    Mach-e GTPE loses to everything

    Versus your 5k lb mustang? Come on guys....can't we all get along. We're all driving land yachts.

    Mach-e GTPE loses to everything

    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...

    Mach-e GTPE loses to everything

    It's not my thread, it's just that in the context of talking about 0-60 your comment didn't make any sense because the GTPE is entirely different from a premium in that respect.
