    Outdoor 14-50 question

    My charger is going to be outside and I plan on using a 14-50 plug. I bought an outdoor 14-50 outlet. The ground is up, which is normal. But my chargepoint flex wants the plug inserted so the cord goes up. But with the enclosed outdoor housing for the 14-50, having the cable go up is a bit...

    Toyota Mirai Owners; There Is No Fuel And We Want Out Of These Cars

    Toyota and Honda spent zero effort on EVs. They both had tepid efforts for fuel cell cars, but there is no infrastructure for this outside of Japan. But worse, as the article states, most hydrogen is produced from fossil fuels today. And then it has to be lugged around to fueling stations (by...

    Are front and rear brakes different?

    Are the front and rear brakes different? It looks like the back brakes don't have a nice solid housing like the front brakes. This is from a loaner I had last weekend.

    Does long press on any of the buttons mute? And is there a pause button?

    It would be clearer if this post's subject was "sign a petition to tell the USPS to go full electric"

    how do the radio controls work?

    I had a loaner MME over the weekend. For AM/FM, I could see how I could enter a radio station directly (via frequency numbers). But there was not good way to see the list of tunable stations. And for SiriusXM, I could switch stations one by one, or view the channel tiles (I think there were...

    hum/buzz from lcd displays

    Thanks @GoGoGadgetMachE. I saw that thread in passing but didn't associate it (based on the subject) with the noise coming from the screen.

    My list of Ford Pass complaints

    I've had a loaner for a couple days and I wanted to write up my experiences with Ford Pass. The car status information can be very out of date. This morning it was last updated 8 hours ago. Last night while at at DC fast charger, the information was 20 minutes out of date. This is critical...

    hum/buzz from lcd displays

    I've seen this mentioned on some threads and on a FB group, but it's hard to track down the current status. There's a mildly annoying buzz/hum coming from the display panels. You can hear it most distinctly when the car is stopped and you turn off the HVAC. Is this in all Mach Es? Is there a...

    Massachusetts EV Rebate?

    It's only for < $50k, right? So select is probably ok. But premium AWD extended range is not eligible, right?

    palsapp train tracking

    My car had a row in palsapp, which said it was delivered to KC. It was that way for several weeks. Now it just comes back with this message (no search results anymore): VIN Number Not Found. The Unit may have been moved by another Carrier or not yet released to Carrier. What does this mean...

    I test drove a ID.4 today (my comparison vs Mach-E)

    I just noticed the VW website configurator says the AWD version has. heated windshield. I wonder if that's just a heated wiper area or if it's a full heated windshield like the Mach E in Europe (Ford Quickclear). Being in New England, that would be awesome! I was really bummed to find out the...

    I test drove a ID.4 today (my comparison vs Mach-E)

    @SteelMach Absolutely agree 100% that the shifter is much better. You push it forward to go forward; you pull it back to go backwards. I wish this would become the standard across the auto industry. Where was the power meter? I didn't pay too much attention to the screen while driving. I did...

    I test drove a ID.4 today (my comparison vs Mach-E)

    My local VW dealer got their demo ID.4 in this past week and I swung by for a test drive. Honestly, it was only the RWD version and the acceleration was sufficient. I remember taking the Mach E for a test drive and being disappointed after having recently driven the MY. All three are faster...

    Any snow on those roads? I'm curious how copilot does with plowed but snow covered roads.

    Is the MME emitting lasers?!?

    Not lasers, but maybe the infrared emitters for the driver monitoring (the black bar behind the steering wheel)??

    Purchasing and Programming another FOB

    Thanks! Good advice!! I don't even have my car, so I can definitely wait. And even then, I'm in no rush to get a second fob.
