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

    My 18 month old Mach-E has finally reached the 50,000 mile mark. Quite an impressive vehicle overall. I think this is a fantastic vehicle that is let down by glitchy software. That being said, the software obstacles are totally manageable. Meaning, the random software issues have never...

    How do I get ACC + LKA/LC back after BlueCruise Handsfree is installed?

    Looking for a little help here. Apologies if this has been asked already, I searched and didn't find anything that addresses my specific questions.... I took my car in because I kept getting front camera and pre collission assist failures and the dealer wanted to complete the installation of...

    For those of you worried about charging to 100%...

    Just sharing some real world usage info in case anyone wonders what they can expect down the road. If usable range is any indication of general HVB health, then it doesn't appear that charging to 100% (displayed) has much of an effect. Of course there isn't anything wrong with choosing a...

    First OTA after 36k Bumper-to-Bumper warranty expired

    To virtually nobody's surprise......my car received an OTA notification today. Just shy of 38k miles so this would seem to indicate that Ford intends on sending updates to vehicles even when the warranty expires. This should please many. I have Auto OTA turned off so perhaps the process is a...

    Summer is here! Ugh!

    You can run, but you can't hide. I can't remember when we started seeing this last year....was it in May?

    36,000 mile report card

    This car gets a split score from me due to extenuating circumstances. 82 points for the first 35,000 miles and 56 points for the last 1,000 miles unfortunately. If given the choice and I could go back in time to Feb 2021, then I would definitely purchase the car again. But if I had to make...

    Need help from folks with FDRS skills....

    I am trying to avoid selling this car and replacing it with something else but I need some help. VIN 3FMTK3SU3MMA02459 I dropped off my car at the dealership on Monday so they could perform the windshield and pano glass recall. They also said they would do the 21B36 PaaK, 21P22 CSP and 21G01...

    Unusually accurate GOM?

    There are plenty of examples from forum members with GOM readings that are way off the mark. No question about it. I am just curious how many of us have vehicles with fairly accurate GOM readings most times. My car has always been pretty good. I think there was 2 or 3 days way back when...

    10,000 kWh battery performance

    It occurred to me that 33,000 miles is a bit of a milestone in respect to battery discharge/charge cycles. At 3.3 mi/kWh then I have discharged and recharged about 10,000 kWh through the HVB pack. I am kinda curious how much degradation has occurred but I am not able to observe any. It's...

    Chimes?

    Over the last month or so. I have noticed the car plays the chimes at random times. I hear it now when the liftgate is opened but not always. Sometimes when I park and at other apparently obscure times. I think I have identified at least 3 different patterns. 9 chimes in 3 groups of 3. 6...

    Range indicator color not filled in?

    I noticed something today that may be a new occurrence but it could easily be that I am just now noticing. While on a road trip through the mountains, I will sometimes descend a grade in "L" like the owner's manual recommends but usually regular D is fine (with a little brake pedal mixed in here...

    Blue bar at every turn now?

    Apologies if this has been discussed. I did a search and nothing came up yet.... The Blue Bar on my nav has always worked but only for freeway interchanges or exits. Starting this past Saturday, it now works for every turn. Has anyone else seen this change on their car? Last Update I...

    Is FordPass VIN specific?

    I have always assumed that FordPass is the same for all Mach-E owners but now I am not so sure. Sounds like some people have Securialert while others don't, some have front trunk button, some have the adaptive headlights control etc. So, how does FordPass know which features to display and...

    FordPower-Up 1.7.1 followed by Stop Safely Now.

    Don't be afraid if this happens to you. Pull over somewhere safe, shut off your car and wait about 4 or 5 minutes and then turn it back on and you should be good. Head over to your dealer and have them clear the codes and run a Self Test. That should get you going again. If any...

    Rotating tires at 21k miles

    I got tired of waiting for Ford to rotate my tires via OTA, so I figured it would do it myself. :p Rear tires go straight forward and front tires cross sides when going to the back. Since we don't have a spare of any kind, the entire car needs to be lifted up in the air. If going that...

    Door not closing completely

    My wife noticed the left rear door wasn't closed completely and tried opening and closing a few times but that didn't work. I took a look at it and noticed the striker plate was loose. There were scratches/witness marks in the paint showing it's original placement so I moved it back and...

    Come on Ford!

    Not sure why. But I keep seeing way more than 270 miles of range on the GOM. Ford promised 270 miles...why isn't my range much less than promised like other EV manufactures? Sometimes I even see more than 270 miles at 90%! Come on Ford....if you are trying to be like Tesla then you have a...

    Tire wear

    Around 10k miles I measured the tread depth and noted about 9/32nd up front and 8/32nd in rear. That surprised me a little bit because I am used to the front tires wearing down quicker than the rears (except when I was in high school then those rears didn't hardly last a year). :p Around...

    My Mach-E saved me $3600 so far

    6 months and 16.5k miles and I realized if I was still driving my Super Duty then I would have burned 1000 gallons of diesel to travel the same distance. Last I looked, diesel fuel is a little over $3/gallon. If you include the oil/filter changes then it works out to an easy $3600 in 6 months...

    Warmest day so far this summer.

    Pretty darn warm today. Running errands and parked with ambient temp of 109 degrees and the car asked to be plugged in. First time I had seen that message on this car. My previous BEV would display that message at 97 degrees but it's battery is about 40% the size of the MME so the larger...
