    Sudden range loss - 2023 Mach E select

    I am in So Cal also and I have a Select AWD. My range is never better than 220 miles on a full charge, 210-215 is more common. This week the range deteriorated to where the GOM was only estimating around 186 miles and I attribute it to the temperature dropping into the 40s at night. There are...

    Do you carry a charger in your Mach-E?

    Short answer - yes, but for a funny reason. The day I bought my car the salesperson was helping me set up everything and I asked to see the charger. They removed it from (I assumed) the cargo area and it was unwrapped with the 240 volt cable attached. They had been charging the car so I just...

    How do you get comfortable in the driver seat?

    I have a Select also and it doesn't have adjustable head rests which caused some discomfort in the seat for me at first. It did take a few weeks of fiddling with all the possible seat adjustments, also I tried a lumbar support pillow. But I've apparently adapted because the car feels perfectly...

    22 GT powered OFF at 60 mph while driving a mountain road

    How long had you been driving down the mountain road and was it steep? The reason I ask is because the regen has limitations and cannot be used for an extended period of time without overheating. Just curious what is the correct way to drive downhill to avoid the potential overheating -...

    The EV “Green” Narrative

    I was interested in the Mach-E since I was driving a Ford Edge and had owned a previous Edge and Explorer. They had all been fun and reliable so it seemed like a logical move. I planned to look into it once the "supply chain issues" of prices and the ridiculous unavailability of cars got a...

    How much do you pay for electric at home?

    You are correct on the usage, we have gas heat here and those bills were off the charts around here last winter

    How much do you pay for electric at home?

    Edison actually has such a second meter plan and you receive some kind of “EV Credit” along with the (very) slightly lower rate. I have done the rate plan comparisons they offer and so far that plan doesn’t project a savings for me. My driving has been reduced due to a change in my work schedule...

    How much do you pay for electric at home?

    Here in SoCal there is a very elaborate system with SCE which includes delivery charges, tiers, “baseline allocations” which vary where you live, and then throw in summer and winter. Last bill my average is .3627 per kWh. in other words, a lot. They have a TOU plan but the highest rates kick...

    "Stop Safely Now" warning & start failure caused by charging system fault

    I’m also in the camp of being a little cautious now about where I go with the car. I haven’t had any problems yet thankfully except one SVS alert early on which upon discussion here might have been caused by incorrect use of the gear shift. What disturbs me is not so much the risk of failure...

    General thoughts on long term reliability for the Mach E

    I voted Above Average.. But I think a big aspect of this as I think someone posted on another thread is the "reliability" of being able to get a problem diagnosed and fixed by the dealership in a reasonable length of time.

    Flat tire question

    Update: thanks all for the comments - everything went smoothly and tire repaired. I had driven over something like a razor or pen knife blade so it was fortunate I didn't drive on it or slice my fingers. We actually backed the MME onto the flatbed in my driveway and I watched pretty carefully...
