    Mach-E Road Trip: Seattle to Los Angeles and Back - Experience, Data, Impressions

    The hotels that had chargers were very slow chargers. When I got to the hotel it said it would take over a day to charge. I'm not sure of the speed of the chargers so I just did 80% DCFC then let it charge overnight. I wasn't too worried about getting all free charging just wanted 100% when I...

    Whenever I was without cell service PaaK would not work.

    Mach-E Road Trip: Seattle to Los Angeles and Back - Experience, Data, Impressions

    I didn't do the range calculations, in hindsight maybe I should have, but I did see that my m\kwh was low. I tried to keep the car 75 or below on highways where possible. Only on the 80 stretches did I do 80-85. As I have no hard data I will say that I felt more comfortable going 70-75 than...

    4K Miles Road Trip and Charging Strategies

    ABRP worked great on my trip. There were some chargers that were in the planned route I could have avoided so I would say that ABRP did suggest more frequent charging. For now, on a road trip, I’d say 80% of your total range you should use as your calculated range.

    Mach-E Road Trip: Seattle to Los Angeles and Back - Experience, Data, Impressions

    I called. The only hotels were the ones down the 5 for me. I choose to stick with a specific chain for comfort and convince rather then who had chargers. Calling around is the only way I know. PlugShare may be good resource But I don’t think you can filter on hotels. Would be a nice...

    Mach-E Road Trip: Seattle to Los Angeles and Back - Experience, Data, Impressions

    I just don’t feel comfortable having someone else follow those instructions to put the car in true neutral. I had valets refuse to take the car because of the passcode. It’s simple enough to you and I but for some people it will be uncomfortable for them or they won’t pay attention to your...

    Mach-E Road Trip: Seattle to Los Angeles and Back - Experience, Data, Impressions

    Glad I could share my perspective. Most of the anxiety was due to the DCFC scarceness in some stretches of highway. If one of the chargers I had to use were out I’d be waiting a long time for a charge. I checked PlugeShare for status and validate before I left previous charging stop. I’m...

    Mach-E Road Trip: Seattle to Los Angeles and Back - Experience, Data, Impressions

    There is about 160 miles between Huntington and Hermiston. That section tons of opportunities for regen as you coast down sections. I don’t remember losing very much battery during that run. Im not certain what would be the best spot to add more chargers. I know Le Grande has some chargers...

    Mach-E Road Trip: Seattle to Los Angeles and Back - Experience, Data, Impressions

    I know what you mean, I was worried before I started my trip. I wanted to experience the rang anxiety for myself which prompted the trip. I actually stopped in Huntington early in the morning. The EA chargers worked great. I had originally planned to stop in Le Grande but bypassed and went...

    Mach-E Road Trip: Seattle to Los Angeles and Back - Experience, Data, Impressions

    Infrastructure in Cali was the best. NV is only good in Vegas area. Wouldn’t take trip up thru the 93 If you have the choice. There is only 1 DCFC in the middle of that route. Utah was ok and Idaho less so. In Idaho there was one stretch where, if the charger was dead, I would have been in...

    Start date\mileage: 04-24\789 End date\mileage: 05-27\5803 Please excuse the verboseness of this post and feel free to skip down to the end to see my conclusions and perceptions of the vehicle. Figured since I have the ability to work from anywhere I’d do a road trip and test out my range...

    Picked car up March 30th and saw the 500 total available. Already burned thru it and now disabled P&C to get the member rates for EA.

    My brand new Mustang Mach E doesn’t run!!

    California Lemon law states that within the 1st 18 months\18k miles Ford has 1 try to fix a major safety issue, 3 tries to fix a minor issue, or 30 (non-consecutive) days to have the car for repairs. If you really want out of the car you should push the issue. If they still refuse then say you...

    Thanks. Tried that several times. This is what the sales guy and the Ford support number people had me do. A few hours later and still no go. I even tried resetting my phone to factory and trying a different device. I also tried updating the cars modules and resetting their configurations...

    Mach-E Issues Compilation List (Wiki)

    Didn't want to update the main wiki as two of my issues are already confirmed by many. I have the screen whine in the instrument cluster screen and my drivers door has a panel gap issue where a part of the front drivers door rubs on the front fender. The other two issues I had are with the...

    Pacific Northwest Deliveries Begin--White Select Available

    They honored X-plan no issues and I didn't take Ford Options although they got me figures for it. They really worked to get different financing choices for me to pick from. Ultimately I needed low payments because I want to pay off the Flex I have when its lease is up and the financing I took...
