    The animation mesmorizes you and you stop cleaning so you can watch it play out?

    Does the Ford Mobile Charger have a wall bracket to hang the electric cord?

    It's included so you can relieve some tension from the wall outlet. A lot of people will use the mobile charger for most of their home charging. @Ponypower50 ... @generaltso is most likely correct... Look at the back of the brick and you'll probably see the wall clip already snapped into it.

    Deep Sleep Mode - 12v battery drained dead [update: Mach-E jump started]

    I understand that to fool my web browsers, the attacker would need to either change my set of certificate authorities or compromise one of the authorities (both are unlikely for a reasonably secured device or any reasonably operated authority). However, does the FordPass app stop functioning in...

    "Ford Options" Mach-E Lease vs standard lease - similarities and differences

    None of the rest of what you said (other than what I quoted) is a surprise to me ... I mean, I didn't know the details for California, but it's not surprising that there are differences state to state. The statement I quoted is surprising, though. I thought for sure that the residual would be...

    Deep Sleep Mode - 12v battery drained dead [update: Mach-E jump started]

    I've requested access to developer.ford.com/fordconnect a bunch of times. Never got any response. I do have a developer.ford.com account but the other APIs, AppLink and OpenXC, don't seem useful to me right now.

    Deep Sleep Mode - 12v battery drained dead [update: Mach-E jump started]

    There are a number of ways to fix this. I'm not a security guy, so I'm sure there are holes in this strategy, but it seems like the current situation would be improved if the app and the server each enforced a private (trusted cert chain), encrypted session with the server during the user's...

    Deep Sleep Mode - 12v battery drained dead [update: Mach-E jump started]

    Paging @Ford Team ... Can you please fix this? Your cloud services should be verifying trust of the client's certificates before giving them PII or vehicle status and controls.

    "Ford Options" Mach-E Lease vs standard lease - similarities and differences

    It's not a mystery. I was responding to someone's question. My salesperson sent me an Options estimate that showed the correct plan price. I didn't even need to remind her that I was using plan pricing. I only mentioned it once in late 2019.

    "Ford Options" Mach-E Lease vs standard lease - similarities and differences

    Sadly, the formula is not disclosed on fordpartner.com. They only show the calculated price for the models as shown with no options like paint or factory accessories. But carsdirect posted the correct x-plan formula about 14 months ago. Search for carsdirect x-plan Mustang Mach-E.

    Some good surprises including Ford Options (financing option) for Mach-E

    I haven't gotten my car yet, nor read the contract. I'll read it before signing and recommend you do the same. I don't know how often they change. But we do know that Options residuals changed at the beginning of this month, and I think the $100 early adopter cash for Active Drive Assist Prep...

    Ford Options in Northern Virginia?

    I've heard that it's based on the customer's address. Check with Ford or your dealer's finance department for confirmation.

    "Ford Options" Mach-E Lease vs standard lease - similarities and differences

    Yes, I think even if you have very strong credit, they are permitted to mark up the APR as long as it's properly disclosed on your paperwork. It would be an added profit source to the dealer if you were to accept those terms.

    Ford Options questions

    The last sentence is wrong. With the $1,000 incentive, you save $1,000 in principal, AND you save the additional amount of interest.

    to get the smart phone or not.....opinions appreciated

    I recommend getting exactly the same phone that your son has. Ask him to send you a link on where to buy it. Use the same phone carrier too. This way your son can provide tech support. If you get something different, it will be much more difficult for your son to understand what you're seeing...

    It's in the second tab of my spreadsheet. You can also derive the full list by building each trim on Ford's web site and checking the finance estimator that's embedded in the builder page.
