    Production increase, or not...

    I read the Ford press release about the price decrease. I believe that there is no new production increase for 2023. I think they simply wove the previously announced production increases from 2022 to 2023 into the press release. Thoughts?

    22B28 Customer Satisfaction Program

    Yesterday I received a big thick mailing, dated December 2022, for this. It's the HVAC update, which my 2022 already received. Tells me I can go to the dealer until 11/30/23 for it. A duplicate of the mailing is in Spanish, and a full page showing both my VINs, because Ford goes off state...

    Trip Odometer - it's not just a reset problem

    I never reset Trip 2 from the day I bought the car. At 4,346 miles, it said my efficiency was 3.0 miles per kilowatt hour. Today, I have 4,733 miles, and my efficiency is 2.5 miles. Therefore, in the 387 miles I've driven since the last time I checked it, my efficiency is 0.87 miles per...

    Yes, even ICE drivers are clueless about winter MPG

    I hid the models to protect the innocent: I've looked to if anyone has posted something like this but was unable to find it. I have a XXXXXX. During the summer I get about 20-21 MPG. Probably get better if I wasn't such a leadfoot. But when winter hits and I have to turn on the heat the MPG...

    Did Ford disable the ability to check update status?

    Log into Select Vehicle Dashboard. When Mach-E is displayed, right click and click Inspect. Click on Network tab. Right click, Reload. Today I get Status = 400 and nothing else. When I click on the Preview, I get 400 Bad Request.

    2 day trip, massive data issues on efficiency in the trip odometers

    Took a trip to the Traverse City area to see some leaves, and drinks some brews. For the first time I noticed a problem with my miles per kWh data. Each trip I reset Trip 1 (Trip 2 is original to buying the car). Therefore, for the first leg, Trip 1 and This Trip match. Except when they...

    Early Access Survey - Review our updates and keep participating - YIKES!

    Button to click is unreadable. Clicking through brings up a screen with nothing to do. Emailing them gets bounced because it's "screened". So I called. Big cluster on this one.
