    Extended Warranty (Ford ESP), worth it?

    The value proposition of the ESP doesn't make much sense as its pricing is the same as ICE while the vehicle's battery/powertrain warranty last significantly longer than of their ICE counterparts. You must also pay additional for LED lighting coverage which is poor plan construction on ford's...

    Cracked Brake Pad and Rotor Damage

    Can't emphasize enough that daily if possible or when as driven, the brakes should experience 1 solid engagement. What occurred here with the pad sticking to the rotor as corrosion took its course could have been prevented. Even with the most aggressive of regen being used, make a habit of...

    Ford to Offer Complimentary Tesla Supercharger Adapter to Eligible Mach-E Owners (1/31/24 Update)

    You seem to be missing the fact I didn't address them as a supplier at all. They're often out of their accessories on their site. I didn't address that at all. Your comment was to the 40k CT, which I pointed out they are supplying, just with a higher price. It's still very much $40-50k worth...

    BlueCruise "not available for your vehicle"

    So you've got copilot assist 2.0 which is hands-on lane centering. It's essentially bluecruise, but doesn't have hands free mode.

    20-30 years for EV transition?

    They'll load balance where appropriate. Currently there wouldn't be demand for such load due to number of vehicles actually charging. Furthermore tesla builds out their own products, arguably the most reliable yet of all companies making these products. Today charging infrastructure, when...

    20-30 years for EV transition?

    China has ~100 coal power plants currently under construction. I am not, nor have I ever been concerned about the AGW grift (outside of the hidden costs buried everywhere due to the $1tril+ that it's already redistributed in the economy). My decisions are made around the financials of it and...

    20-30 years for EV transition?

    I remember 2, decadal long conflicts in the immediate past which wasn't over resources at all. though it did cost several trillion $$. There's another one involving 3rd parties also getting 100s of billions funneled through it. Nam didn't have oil, nor did Bosnia. Any reason is a valid excuse...
