  1. Mustang Mach E has major powertrain issues. Here are my reasons why NOT to buy this car

    Look up the DPS6 lawsuit, Ford was selling defective transmissions, knew it, and kept selling them anyway. The Pinto killed people, they knew it and rolled with it. Ford's quality is in the bottom third of manufacturers. Other car manufacturers aren't saints either, just saying, Ford is what...
  2. Mustang Mach E has major powertrain issues. Here are my reasons why NOT to buy this car

    Realistically, this is a more risky experience than buying a more conventional vehicle or better brand. On the other hand California does have a lemon law. There are reliability questions, because, well, it's a damn Ford. This is the company of the Ford Pinto and if you get bored look up the...
  3. SOS - California Route 1 vs Premium Standard

    Had a post on that but couldn't find it and yours is better anyways. Most of that I can't really comment on but I did, unintentionally, test the heated steering wheel. It gets mighty warm. It's not meant for most Californian's, it's meant for the car being encased in ice. Out of all of that...
  4. EV's kill animals?

    Maybe, but at the same time, less noise might be beneficial to the animals, and us, as well. One of the off-beat benefits to Covid is that marine life is less hammered by the sound of giant boats running around in the ocean. Often hard to say what is beneficial and not, kind of like the Tesla...
  5. First Mustang Mach E Road Trip 😫

    Do you think Ford isn't tracking you, or Garmin, or whomever is providing that data to Ford? Do you actually think they won't sell the information, or use it in some fashion, once they dial it in? Are you certain your phone, your watch / fitness tracker, whatever else isn't tracking you? And...
  6. Testdrive the MACH-E

    Who cares what Tesla people think or do. It's a RWD video. He wins the internet for doing even that. Now, he just needs to get it dirty, post a picture here, just one single dirty car, and I deem him the winner of the internets twice in one day. And it kicked ass 0 to 60, so what if it's not...
  7. First Mustang Mach E Road Trip 😫

    You can't even reliably pull up to a charger and know if it will work or how much power you'll get. There's a need for a lot more than that.
  8. First Mustang Mach E Road Trip 😫

    All kinds of thoughts. Chargers need a national standard, ASAP. The free market isn't some divine diety of perfection, it can be a damn mess a lot of the time. This is something that cries out for standardization, especially if the infrastructure bill goes through. I agree with the post...
  9. Savagegeese Mach-E Review

    It's a fair review. Regarding CarPlay, we just had an IOS update. It's not rare for things to get erratic when that happens. They might have updated their phone, or not, when they were making this review. It didn't feel that bouncy when I drove it but I could sort of see the complaint. I...
  10. Savagegeese Mach-E Review

    Haven't watched the review, yet, but I can guess. Savage is 40ish going on 80ish when it comes to infotainment. He's always complaining about infotainment screens. I didn't have any issues with infotainment although I didn't try CarPlay on my drives. It seemed to start up just fine and was...
  11. TheStraightPipes Mustang Mach-E First Edition Review

    Everyone gets the AWD, never the RWD. It would be nice to see if it drives the same way in the corners, particularly in the rain, and how the stability / traction control affects it. Tesla RWD's seem to do fine in bad conditions so I assume the Ford is similar but I also assume it's hard to...
  12. Dealer ordered the wrong car spec, now what?

    Excepting that they handed them to me, dealer did exactly that, even said take your time, show it to your friends, etc. And remember what happens to our cars the moment they drive off the dealer lot. Price doesn’t go down a mere $2k.
  13. Dealer ordered the wrong car spec, now what?

    Absent the human doing the order, I agree. Were I not of a trusting nature I might question the dealer’s good intentions.
  14. Bad boys, bad boys; watcha gonna do when they come for you??

    Cops need slower cars, not faster. Give em all Priuses, in pink, take some of the edge off so they do fewer high speed chases.
  15. Mach-E Owners Review a Tesla Model Y

    White is the free color.
  16. ADM alert on new orders at Fremont Ford in California.

    Bunch of Mach E's listed on their website. Mostly Route 1's and below, so a lot of Selects. I should go by there again, I really want to try a RWD.
  17. ADM alert on new orders at Fremont Ford in California.

    Can’t doc fee like that in CA, it’s capped, I think at $80. Watsonville Ford is still trying for $10k on the website.
  18. This hurt

    I wasn't really responding to you. I used to get paid to do this (about the only thing I know how to do on a car except replace filters and wiper fluid) so I know something about the glass repair side. I just went to Safelite and they're saying up to 6-inches, which I don't believe. Tech...
  19. This hurt

    It can't be repaired, and no, professionals can't repair larger damage, and it has nothing to do with the size being a quarter. I suppose some glass guy who just does repairs might try but not if they were honest. That crack is significantly spidered. There are at least 4 cracks ready to...
  20. Tax credit discussions

    I'm W2, I have a deferred compensation program that I throw $26K/year at. If I do a catch-up (3 years option), which I'm eligible for, that climbs to, I think $39K. I would, I think just barely make it to the full amount because there's some other deductions that play into things. And in...
