    2022 Volvo XC40 Recharge Impressions/Comparisons

    You can probably find a thousand review videos on YouTube. But while I have one in my possession for a second time as a rental while my own MME is awaiting a HVBJB replacement, I figured I would post some quick comparisons and observations. For reference, I'm comparing it to my 2021 MME 4x...

    L2 40a overheating

    I have a Grizzl-e EVSE with adjustable output between 16-32-40 amp settings, connected to a 50a breaker. I've used it at the 40amp setting for over a year with no issue. About a month or so ago I ran into multiple charging errors such as "scheduled charge did not begin" or "charging stopped"...

    I feel... Illuminated.

    For all of you waiting for your light up pony, let me just say this - it's worth it. Long story short, our resident innovator @supared was looking for a car to install a new lighted pony on and shoot an instructional video for the rest of the fellow Kickstarter backers. My job 1, 2021...

    Is anyone else worried about replacing a battery pack in the future?

    Maybe it's just me, but I went into my MME considering it to be a car I'd have for at least 6 years. Within the first year of ownership I've put 19,500 miles on it. More miles than I was anticipating at this point, but I have no regrets. It's been a great car for me and my family. I caught...

    Untapped potential for Frunk Accessories

    Seeing the new Rivian Frunk teardown video from Munro today got me thinking. Now that we are near summer here in NA, wouldn't it be great to have a few accessories for the Frunk to better utilize this space for cooler potential? The OEM dividers are a disaster. Most of us know the backstory...

    What in the blue oval is this? Ford supercharger spotted?

    I saw this image on tonight and the charging station pictured caught my eye. Is this confirmed in any way as real? In all of the promos so far I haven't seen this before, but it may just be some artsy BS by marketing. Have you seen this before?

    How would the MME perform in high water such as this? [Video]

    I was watching this absolutely hysterical video of people thinking they could traverse this water (nearly all with completely dire results) and it made me think. Without an air intake, how would the MME perform? Mind you I don't think I have the guts or smooth brain to try this, but an...

    Windshield Recall - A really, really disappointing experience.

    [TL;DR: I brought the car in for the glass recall in great condition. Left with a bunch of extra scratches on the inside of the windshield, dealer is declining liability. Help @Ford Motor Company] Like many of you, I received the recall notice in the mail after already knowing that it was...

    Chrysler Airflow Concept car - Remind you of anything?

    I've seen this car pop up twice in my newsfeed and I can't shake the feeling like this shares so many design concepts from the MME, on the outside anyway. 1. The scoops in the front facia - eerily similar to the MME GT. 2. The stretched, narrow headlights - check. 3. The two-tone look between...

    Felt cute and wanted to share. Might delete later, idk

    I just gave her a bath and wanted to snap a pic. No effort was spent to compose the shot or whatever. This is the first pic I've posted showing the aeroskin applied on the hood edge.

    So we took the family camping this year, utilizing the fold down seats for a sheltered sleeping area, but those darn blue map lights... they won't turn off.

    With many of us heading to the dealers before the end of the year to address the windshield and glass roof recall, I thought it might be handy to have a comprehensive TSB list available as a checklist of sorts to keep in mind as we make our appointments.
