    How many pilots do we have?

    A pilot I flew with a few times was married and divorced at least 7 times, a couple of them he married twice. He had a bumper sticker that stated “Honk If You Have Been Married To Bobby”. The last I heard of him he was living out of his car.

    Update on Mach-E launch progress from engineering friends in Mexico

    Sometimes No News is Good News. :) Maybe the next we hear will be in a couple of weeks that the Demos are done and ready to ship and that in another 10 days or so the First Editions will be ready to ship.

    How much larger a tire can fit on premium wheels?

    Hey, I see you have a 2019 Nissan Leaf SL+ just like I have --- so I think you pretty well know what's in the equation here. :) Rolling resistance is a huge factor in a EV's range --- just minor changes in tire pressures will change the range available. I love my 2019 Leaf Plus and it does...

    Mach-E resale value

    One big factor in driving the resale value of the Mach-E up in 2024 is how very few will be available on the used car market. Remember total 2020 – 2021 NA sales are only 20,000 – about 4,000 GT’s and of those only a few thousand will be coming off the 3 year option plan or 3 year financing...

    Mach-E resale value

    And with a finite limited production for 2020 – 2021 and what appear to be a high NA / Europe demand for the E-Mustang, Ford has the luxury of offering an “Option Lease” to buyers who insist on a walk away option even though the cost will be several thousand $’s higher than the low financing...

    Mach-E resale value

    From the Ford Mach-E web site a Premium --- Ext R --- AWD with Dest = $58,800 35 Mo Payments of $808/Mo $5,770 Down 10,500 mi/Yr Total Balloon = $25,872 So, after 36 Mo you have sent Ford $34,050 and got a $7,500 Fed Tax Credit. Final cost if you walk away from it --- $26,550 to drive 31,500 mi...

    Mach-E resale value

    How are you going to get a clean Title on the vehicle to use it as Trade In Value without first having the lien holder removed from the Title?

    Mach-E resale value

    You are loosing me here. :) If you don't pay off the balloon --- Ford owns the car. If you do pay off the balloon, it was just another type of financing plan, although it would have cost less to start with a 0.9% APR plan and a $1,000 Ford Credit Bonus. On a 36 month payment plan your...

    Mach-E resale value

    I just don’t see how you can consider the Ford Option Plan as a viable lease choice. From the Ford Mach-E web site a Premium --- Ext R --- AWD with Dest = $58,800 35 Mo Payments of $808/Mo $5,770 Down 10,500 mi/Yr Total Balloon = $25,872 So, after 36 Mo you have sent Ford $34,050 and...

    2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E Reports 355-Mile Range In Alleged Real-World Driving Test

    WAY back in about 1970, I drove that leg from Oslo to Trondheim and back in a rental VW Beetle. I am sure major improvements have been made to that road since then, but I do remember in some sections even 45 mph was at the sane limit and I was still in my 20’s then --- fearless and bullet...

    Decided to cancelled Mach E for a Model Y

    Good point, I do think it is very likely Ford has more than enough Global reservations / orders for their stated 50,000 battery allotment. Hopefully they are upfront with new orders that 2021 delivery times in 2021 are dependent on how many reservations convert to orders and any additional...

    Decided to cancelled Mach E for a Model Y

    True with the Ford Option but he was comparing it to a Tesla lease. And even with the Ford Options you will only have equity if you pay off the balance and keep the car. Looks a lot like financing.

    Decided to cancelled Mach E for a Model Y

    Well I don’t think we will see Ford Credit offering below zero interest rates. :) Although, when I bought my last Ford F250 I was going to pay cash, but Ford Credit was offering a $1,000 bonus to finance. Signed up, made 1st monthly payment and paid off the balance. Although with the first...

    Decided to cancelled Mach E for a Model Y

    With interest rates likely to remain very low for the remainder of the year, also consider financing the Mach-E. With a good credit rating, a Ford Credit Loan will have zero or very low financing costs. By far the cheapest way to buy the vehicle.

    Update on Mach-E launch progress from engineering friends in Mexico

    Hopefully, it doesn’t take until Oct. 26 to finish up the 2,500 or so FCTP / demos. That’s a rate of only 600 or so a week --- they will be taking naps on the assembly line.

    Update on Mach-E launch progress from engineering friends in Mexico

    Sounds Great. I think Ford’s goal has always been to under promise and over deliver the Mach-E. Starting that soon --- the 2,000 + NA Demos/FCTP should complete before the middle of Oct. and the 1,600 or so NA FE’s before the end of Oct.
