  1. Ford sends mass Mach-E delivery delay emails [Updated with Ford's response]

    TBH, this whole thing makes me feel a lot better about the Mach-e. It was inevitable that not just a new model, but Ford's first ground up BEV would have some early issues. Massive respect to Ford for the way they are handling it. Some may be disappointed, but it's just part of being an early...
  2. Mach-E Hands-Free Active Drive Assist PRICING Announced, OTA Update Available in Q3 2021

    Point taken. My apologies to the entire group.
  3. Mach-E Hands-Free Active Drive Assist PRICING Announced, OTA Update Available in Q3 2021

    You really seem to be a fan of posting on subjects you're completely ignorant of. There is no "fighting the automation" on a Tesla. If I make a steering input, the autopilot disengages. As it should.
  4. Mach-E Hands-Free Active Drive Assist PRICING Announced, OTA Update Available in Q3 2021

    Where to start. Let's see, how about I start with you have zero understanding of the systems involved? My original post did not imply what you say. Either you need to work on your reading comprehension or study up on the systems you seem to think you know. (You don't.) My point was this: When...
  5. Seriously considering the Tesla Y now, talk me down

    Never heard of that before. You should make a service appointment. You must have defective slide strips? I''d just request mobile service to come to your location; that sounds like something they could do pretty easy. Probably replace the slide strip and re-grease the mechanism inside the door.

    Put this on all of your rubber seals. Gummi Pflege This isn't a problem unique to Teslas. Before I started using this stuff All of my cars had doors freeze to the door seals at times. This is great stuff and very popular in Europe. It not only will keep your doors/windows from freezing to the...

    Not exactly true. You're forgetting that the heat pump system allows you to scavenge waste heat from the battery and the motors to help heat the cabin. So the heat pump is going to be more efficient than resistive heating down to that temperature that that the motor and battery no longer produce...
  8. Seriously considering the Tesla Y now, talk me down

    6% sounds pretty close given my experience, but it really depends on the temperature. If it's cold enough that there's no waste heat to scavenge from the battery or motors, then probably no advantage at all. I don't believe there is a heating coil in the Y. I'm pretty sure if it's cold enough...

    Yes and no. If you're in snow or sand up to the frame rails you're in worse trouble in an Ice vehicle because of everything hanging down below the rails. In most 4x4s that's going to be the pumpkins and the shock mounts possibly. But on an ICE 4x4, you measure your ground clearance from the...

    You said the E had 5.8" to 6.0" ground clearance. I have measured the Y AWD--stock--at 6 3/4". That sounds like an inch to me, certainly well over half an inch. Good day to you too. You have broken my heart with your ignore. 😭

    Subjective. If your needs are met by either car, I'd say it's a great idea to buy the one you think looks better. I like them both. The Mach-e AWD against the Y AWD? Not a chance. The Y will slaughter it on the track. 600 pounds less weight, probably better brakes, better tires, quicker...
  12. Seriously considering the Tesla Y now, talk me down

    That's good to hear, I was thinking 5.5" for the E. Still, it sounds like about an inch less than the Y AWD. That will make a difference under some circumstances. Every inch counts; that's why people pay for lift kits that don't even lift two full inches. LOL, you really need to read my post...

    I guess if you care about surfaces that aren't visible. I really don't. The unpainted, not visible, surfaces are still coated and corrosion proof. I have not seen too thin paint, but I'm sure it happens. Regardless of the reasons, I'm willing to stipulate that you are more likely to get bad...

    @trutolife27 , LOL, I'm not putting down Ford or the Mach-e. Just the opposite in fact. I'm just pointing out that for every video you can point to showing something negative about Tesla, I can the same with Ford. Neither really means anything. I know for a fact that the Y is a great car as I...

    Dude, you can believe it or not. There are some very nasty chemicals in some paint. Google "isocyanates." This is a chemical in automotive paint that is particularly nasty. It is not banned in most states, including the ones you mentioned. Go to any automotive paint shop dealer in your area and...
  16. Seriously considering the Tesla Y now, talk me down

    Long story short for laymen: California has very stringent requirements on what can be in paint. The things they restrict make it much easier to achieve a quality paint job. Mexico does not have most of these restrictions, and the ones they do are not enforced. The paint that Ford can use in...

    Absolutely both QC and CS need to improve. Tesla's post sale/pre-delivery customer service sucks. Some Service Centers are not customer oriented at all. Here in Portland, we're lucky to have a great Service Center. But it shouldn't be a matter of luck. As far as quality control, Tesla is pushing...
