    Coming by "convoy"?

    Our Premium was built this last week and when I look on w/Dealer # an VIN it shows the vehicle is being transported by "convoy" which I take to mean truck. I thought all Mach e's came up from Mexico via rail. See attached. Could anyone enlighten me? Thanks.

    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...

    Ford just posted this and I confirmed it on consumer reports (but it's behind a paywall so can't link to it). Range reports of EVs in different temps It was nice to see that the ranges of the Mach e were virtually identical to the Tesla MY.

    Musings on how IRA bill will affect Mach e resale values, orders, flippers, etc...

    I would imagine that orders for Mach e's will increase substantially with so many EVs being built outside of the Americas (i.e., Canada--USA--Mexico). That in turn could also impact the near new (i.e., used) market for EVs and PHEVs. I also wonder how or whether this will impact people...

    Post 5/25/22 builds who experience HVBJB (High Voltage Battery Junction Box) failures: Please post here

    As I understand it, Mach e's built post 5/25 have new HVBJBs that won't fail and leave people needing a HVBJB replacement. So I thought I'd start this thread to ask those of you who have a post 5/25/22 build and experience such a failure to post here. Please also include your model (e.g...

    Note on pause in production of the Mach e in Ford Authority Newsletter

    I subscribed to Ford News's email blast last week and this came through this morning; the Mach-E production pause is not being blamed on a lack of semiconductors, but an unrelated parts shortage instead.

    Lucid Air impressions

    We stopped in at the Lucid showroom in Milbrae CA on our way up to SF to watch the SailGP races this weekend. I had been wondering about the Lucid ever since they announced the Dream Edition (which they've started delivering to customers now). Here are my impressions: It's a stunning design...

    Upgrading the non-GT Mach e's to improve rear dampening

    Hi all, I've got a 4x on order and have watched a number of youtube videos wherein they dislike the dampening in the rear suspension. (I have to admit I didn't notice it when I took a test drive on a twisty road around here.) There also seems to be a consensus (of youtube reviewers at least)...

    Greetings from Arroyo Grande CA (Central Coast)

    Hi all, I've joined this forum to learn more about the Mach E. We may order one as a second BEV. I have a 2021 Tesla Model Y LR AWD and my wife has a 2017 Chevy Volt. The Volt is what we would sell if we get the Mach E. We've got a 5Kw solar system that fully meets our needs for the home as well...
