    Tire wear after just 13k miles

    Does your Mach E have the summer tire option or is it a GTPE? If so, there’s your answer. The summer tires wear much faster than the standard all-season tires. But they also offer greater grip as the trade-off. Did you rotate your tires yet? That’s another factor in equalizing wear.

    Chinese Mach E GT with no 5 second limit?

    Yep, they will! It’ll get killed by an HSV GTS Holden Commodore or something like that. The Aussies will represent. Haha.

    The need for speed

    Multiple runs up to Vmax of 113 in our 4X. Plus, lots of 0-60, 0-100, 30-70, 30-100, 1/4 mile and other Dragy runs. It also has an interstate commute 3 days/week where speeds are 75-90mph for 35-40 mile stretch. HVBJB failed at about 22K miles.

    I’m thinking @Mach1E. How about you? Any other nominees? 🤣

    I wanna see the first GT owner do a Five Seconds of Fury + stripe down the door. 😎

    Secondary tiles smaller after 4.1.2 update

    Yep. Some worthwhile changes and some worthless changes. Eliminating screen sizing and bigger secondary tiles is really annoying. We like having the tire pressure displayed and now it’s too small to show all 4 tires psi.

    Latest Graphene from Adam’s Polishes

    Haha, CenTex weather. Most people aren’t aware of it but check average days of rain for Austin, it’s 80-90. Less than the Northwest but about the same total rainfall. Plenty of rain from the Gulf moisture trains in spring/fall/winter and a temp spread of 25-105F. Our son’s WRX is black and...

    Better a bird strike on the Jeep than a P&W JT9D ingesting one. 😎

    Driver seat ActiveX material failing after 13k miles.

    Bro, is this a joke? Never buy a Ford again because of bad upholstery? Talk about a tough customer. You know Ford will warranty replace your seat covers on the 3/36 bumper to bumper warranty, right? Our ‘21 Job 2 4X has 14 months/22K miles and our seats still look perfect. Space grey as well...

    About those AOSK rear door handles. Fail.

    Yep. Some people meaning parents of kids that sometimes try to pull the door shut from the backseat, while mom or dad has their fingers on the door frame, because there’s no gd door handle. Fun times. Feels great. Way to go Ford.

    Post here if you have an active FDRS account and are willing to look up info for others

    We’re getting a driver seat belt sensor error but my obd2 plug in is failing me right now. I’m trying to determine if our dtc is just the belt sensor or a larger srs module problem. One we can drive with until svc can tech it, one we really can’t/shouldn’t. Thanks in advance. 3FMTK3SU2MMA48641

    Anyone with FDRS available to run our VIN to determine trouble code?

    We’re getting a driver seat belt sensor error but my obd2 plug in is failing me right now. I’m trying to determine if our dtc is just the belt sensor or a larger srs module problem. One we can drive with until svc can tech it, one we really can’t/shouldn’t. Thanks in advance. I’ll PM our VIN.

    Latest Graphene from Adam’s Polishes

    That’s cool. But, our son’s bottle of Adam’s has plenty enough left to do my SS or our MME as well. To each his own I suppose.

    Latest Graphene from Adam’s Polishes

    I assisted my son when he applied his and the UV light does come in handy for knocking down high spots. I was skeptical when we purchased it but it’s legit.

    Latest Graphene from Adam’s Polishes

    Actually….. We got this same Adam’s kit for our son’s black WRX last year. I think I posted here about it. It works as advertised and the UV gimmick does come in handy while applying it. After 9+ months of Texas weather the ceramic seems to be holding up well as he still gets crazy amounts of...

    Longevity of magneride suspension?

    MagneRide shocks/struts generally fare well, however, there have been outliers. The 2015-2017 Chevrolet SS sedan had a good number of MagneRide shocks fail due to leakage of the magnetorheological fluid. Curb weight was only 3900-3980 lbs so it’s not like it’s a heavy car.

    Stains on garage floor from Mach-e

    Yes, the MME holds tons of water underneath and waits to dump it until safely in a clean garage. Yay.

    Industry gut punch -- The Tesla price drop maintains insane margins

    You know what else will put you out of business? A loudmouth a-hole “CEO” who thinks that 100+ years of manufacturing experience has to be a liability rather than, possibly, an asset. Therefore, he does everything his way to “disrupt” regardless of the costs involved. Over-automating, ruling by...
