    If you have a Mach E and feel screwed by the price slash, call Ford, or don't. LOL

    Got my loaded GT April, 2023. KBB shows its only worth $48k just 10 months later. So a $20k drop. I think the folks that have loans might want to look in to GAP insurance. It's a drag, yes, but it is what it is. We really enjoy ours and also enjoying >$20/month power bill. For curious...

    Best snow vehicle ever

    Totally agree Rod! Doing a little bath time after my snow time fun in Des Moines. The Pony gallops just fine in the snow!

    I hate the new UI on the drivers front screen.

    I was updated a few days ago and don't see any of these far. I especially like being reminded the speed at which I'm going is not knots but "Ground Speed" haha

    Rear Air Vent works???

    Thanks for replies everyone. I did manage to rotate the damper open and closed but very little air movement. Unlike other cars it appears this rear seat set up has no individual fan control and relies on whatever the main cabin fan is doing. Bad design in my opinion for this high tech of a...

    Rear Air Vent works???

    I had for the first time passengers in my 2023 MME GT and we noticed no matter what we did with the climate control you could not get air to come out of the rear seat air vents. There doesn't appear to be any control of it. Of course this happens when its only 15 degrees out! Anybody else...

    Iowa Condo Charging

    Hello fellow members. I live in a 10 story condo and many of us have electric cars. I am looking for charging options where any EV can charge but still have to have an app and pay for their own power. Not for public use. I have looked at ChargePoint so far. Any other suggestions?

    Phone Charger Heat

    Shane, great coaching! I went and bought these Scotch floor pads. You know the kind you put under chair legs. They have adhesive on the back side but won't scratch back side of phone. Stuck 5 down (not where camera is) and sits pretty stable and level. AND charges! Pads are 3-4mm thick so...

    Phone Charger Heat

    Anyone else out there notice the phone charger also cooks your phone? I can't leave mine on for long periods because it heats it up to the point the screen is too hot.

    Des Moines Iowa >> to Seattle >> and Back

    Yes that is correct. It was VERY frustrating. After 15-20 minutes I called the Chargepoint number and the operator told me to try it and I did and it worked. Fluke? Don't know. All I know was I was glad I wasn't stuck in 95 degree heat anymore.

    Charging Limit

    Hi Mech-e Gang, my first post. Just bought a 2023 Mach-e and took it on my first trip. Things went great learning about the car, the drive and the fun. I now have all the charging and charger locator apps I never knew I had to have. It's quite a few to my surprise. Two noticable things I...
