    Seriously Ford…

    In the last 60 days, my car has attempted a grand total of 3 OTA updates. This is the second one that has ended up like this. If you want to know why I am not paying $600 for 3 additional years of hands free BlueCruise, this is why. Besides missing every single target you have publicly set for...

    I’m not sure where this one belongs. Is your dealership planning to become “Model E” certified?

    I thought about this with my dealership as I drove past it today. I would obviously prefer that they do, but I have another dealership that seems committed to EV’s not much further from my home. I want to find out if my dealership, and/or the other one are going to get the certification, so I...

    Latest Early Access survey…

    So I just received a survey request from the early access program. I decided to hijack it and every time they allowed me to type in comments I let them know how I feel about the new pricing for BlueCruise. 😇

    So, I got an email this past week that my complimentary BlueCruise subscription is about to expire, and it got me thinking…

    I will not be subscribing until Ford updates all Job 1 cars like mine to 1.2. None of this “it’s coming”, no “second quarter”, I’m not paying until I have all the features available

    Dear Mach-E OTA team,

    Unless Alexa can open the hood/front storage compartment/frunk, why would you invest so much effort in giving us yet another voice assistant/data mining app that no one was asking for over the electronic release that we have ALL been complaining about since day 1? I seriously don’t understand...

    So, here at the tail end of my trip to Colorado and back…

    I’m considering changing the S Smurfmobile’s name. In honor of all the bugs it has laid waste to, I’m considering renaming it to Ender. Thoughts? 🤣

    Navigation system has suddenly gotten very stupid… or I just never noticed this.

    Since arriving in Colorado, and now on my way back to Detroit, the car regularly routes me to exit the highway only to have me get right back on the highway. There’s no stop, no nothing, just exit and rejoin the highway while driving. this is causing me a ton of stress because I am driving...

    Well, it’s 100° in Fort Morgan, and I need to dcfc to make it to my next stop.

    I guess I’m about to see how good the HVBJB replacement works. Wish me well.

    Popular Science got to drive the 1400 hp Mach-E.

    The Smurfmobile is coming to Colorado…

    I’m going to road-trip the Smurfmobile out to Colorado from detroit for shits and giggles, and to use up my “free” EA KWH. I am going to meet up with some friends for a few days, but I wouldn’t mind getting together with a few Mach-E knuckleheads while I’m out there as well. If this sounds like...

    I need to get dimensions for the motors on the Mach-E

    I keep seeing the power units on the F-150 Lightning, and I’m wondering… 😈

    What am I missing?

    Ok, so we all know I charged at work for the first year I had the Smurfmobile. Now that I am working in the F-150 Lightning plant, I don’t have access to the chargers at work anymore, so I am using my home ESVE to charge. My question is this… I have a charging schedule to take advantage of off...

    Ok, ok, ok! But, hear me out…

    Yes, I totally get tie irony.

    Powertrain malfunction/ Reduced Power

    So, your friendly neighborhood Dimwit was happily driving home from work today, when the bed was suddenly full of feces. In traffic, I was attempting to pass slower traffic (they were doing 30 in a 50) and as a clearing appeared, I hit the accelerator and changed lanes. But, there was no power...

    I finally got my transfer to the F-150 Lightning plant completed!!!

    I started there today, just in time for the first customer trucks to be built. It was a good day.

    Finally got BlueCruise yesterday… (first impressions)

    The timing was fortuitous. Because I had a short overnight trip planned, which gave me a chance to try it out. The first thing I noticed was that active lane centering on surface streets seems better to me. Like less fighting against the wheel is required. Once I got onto the expressway, and...

    It is a sad, sad day in the Dimwit household…

    It was bound to happen eventually. ?

    Updates beyond 2.4.5…

    So, after a blistering week that saw me get 4 updates within 7 days, it has now been 5 days without another. Do we thing this is just a lull in the storm, or are they evaluating the vehicles reactions to having that many updates pushed at them that quickly? Or, is it something altogether...

    When I charge to 100% I think it’s actually charging the full battery pack to 100%, not just my 88 kWh useable battery.

    So, yesterday I did an update while charging at work. I have that charging location set to 95% for the winter, but it charged all the way to 100%. I think this was due to the update, but for the purpose of this discussion it really doesn’t matter. When I looked at my driving data, it said I used...
