    Savagegeese Mach-E Review

    For hammering on the UI issues, there were not any spots in the video where if failed or even was slow. Also did not demonstrate how it could be difficult to navigate the UI, but did point out the lack of a search feature which I suspect is his main complaint. My wife and I both played around in...

    ADM alert on new orders at Fremont Ford in California.

    Nice, I wonder if the incentives will remain as everything gets pushed out? I cannot imagine there being too big of a difference on the x-plan pricing between now and delivery (or between zip codes).

    Gasoline-powered cars more reliable?

    People are going to people. I lived in hurricane areas and got to see this played out every single time one was even predicted. Lived in areas that would be hit by massive snow storms and... same thing (it is all a conspiracy to sell more bread and milk at the convenience stores!). I agree...

    GT, what happened to late summer?

    The only constant in life is change. I think the demand for the Mach-e was a bit above their expectations and they also have folks who put an order in for the GT long before we had pricing and packages. If a lot of those are canceled or convert over to another trim (cost, impatience, etc.) then...

    Kia EV6 U.S. Premiere May 18th at 8 p.m. ET

    I like the EV6 and it is on my list of serious contenders for my $$$$. If there is enough of a hiccup with the Mach-e GT, I could easily pivot to this car (pending a test drive).

    Techie nerd stuff

    Sigh, I think my wife may ban me from visiting the forums. I now have a new garage door opener on my wishlist. The one we have here is 15 years old and still works fine, but any excuse to update.

    Charge Port Cover Dent Prevention – 3D Printed DIY Solution

    Earlier in the thread I brought up about other filament types. TPU works the best but if you do not have a direct drive 3d printer you will not be able to print with it due to how soft the material is. PLA has heat tolerance issues. I think about 140*F is its glass transition state.

    May the 4th Be With You!

    Ah, SWTOR. So awesome in beta and fell so flat (with me) afterward. Hope everyone had a great 4th! Hopefully folks have been able to watch the Bad Batch as a way of celebrating.

    Ford stock. Any takers?

    I pinged my other half about adding ChargePoint to our portfolio sometime this week or next. I think I have seen it listed in about four different recommended buy lists in the last two weeks.

    A Z D and X plan pricing for loaded GT Performance Edition

    I really appreciate the posting of the numbers. I also have an order in for a loaded GTPE and was curious if x-plan was going to be accepted.

    Ford stock. Any takers?

    My wife and I scooped up a bit of Ford stock while it was down pretty far last year. I hope they update the xplan to include the GT so we can make more use of it other than being in the "pays a dividend" pile.

    April 2021 Mach-E Sales Lead to Best Month Ever for Ford Electrified Vehicles

    Good excuse for a road trip. Just make sure you have half a pack of cigarettes, that it is dark out, and have sunglasses. Forget that full tank of gas stuff though, that is so 20th Century. Good luck in your search.

    Test Drives in SOCAL

    Fiesta Ford in Indio had one that I was able to test drive, right before the GT model was made available for ordering. Not sure if it is still on the lot or not.

    Do we now need to see the dealer to continue the order process?

    My order was converted over almost instantly. The sales guy originally said it could take a few hours before they see it in their system. My process: Visited dealer and did the test drive Left and chatted over the next few days due to Ford suspending new reservations Made reservation online...

    Solved the Phone Charging issue

    I have an Ender 3 in my print farm and it is pretty awesome. I use the CR10 for just about everything but if I have a large project going on that, I will print smaller and multi parts on it. Nice, small, and amazingly consistent.

    GT Mach-E ordering starts next week - 4/28! Who's ordering?

    I imagine quite a bit until they become a bit more common, maybe early '22.

    Flooring the pedal technique

    Depends on the vehicle. My ZX2 and Mazda, I took it easy until I got the feeling of the car down. My Camaro I took out for a pretty serious stomp the pedal and drive the car sideways within a couple of days of buying it. EVs are a new creature to me so I will probably take it easy for a bit...

    I really love the circuity design. I was thinking about doing something similar for the one I have on order.
