    Playlist for song I might play when I drive my MME off the lot

    I saw them live last month - great show! I played Choke on my test drive.

    I had a meeting cancel last minute so I dipped my toe back in online searching and I have to say, I’m glad I did. I saw a unique Mach-E for sale. Isn’t she a beauty?

    Took delivery last night, have a couple questions

    The closest horse riding term I can think of is leg. A riding teacher might tell a student "give it more leg" to make the horse go faster. Removal of leg pressure makes the horse go slower. But calling the pedal OK the Mach-E a "leg pedal" would be confusing!

    Help me check myself before I wreck myself

    I’ve done this same route many times, and there are at least two stretches that have signs warning “absolutely no services for the next 100 miles.”

    Help me check myself before I wreck myself

    I grew up in the Denver area and went to college in L.A. I have done the Colorado/Cali drive many times in many different months, most recently just this July. I don’t have to tell you to expect the unexpected! We had to detour through Wyoming this time because of the Glenwood Canyon mudslides...

    It sure would be an adventure! I’m taking a break from actively car shopping for a bit to recharge my own battery and will reassess then, but I will definitely reach out if I decide to proceed.

    MME ER 4X vs. XC40 Recharge

    My kids are 12, 9 and 6 and all tall for their ages. I'm 5'10" and my husband is 6'2". The 6 year old is still in a booster seat for every drive, and we use a booster for the 9 year old for most drives. We got the 3 of them in and it was immediately elbows and knees everywhere! :D gotta love...

    I know. That's what I've been using. It's just another step in an already time-consuming process, you know?

    If your interested in buying a Mach-E NOW then don't order one, do this instead

    I've run into far more dealers listing cars on Autotrader that aren't actually available than legit listings as well. I'm in Denver. So frustrating!

    I know Prestige on Colfax! My dad got an audi from them years ago. I went with him for a test drive and they were great. I'll give Costco a try when I'm ready to resume my hunt. Thanks for the tip!

    MME ER 4X vs. XC40 Recharge

    I also test drove a Mach-E and the XC-40 this weekend! I have a Mach-E on order but I was considering the subscription plan on the XC-40 to tide me over until my Mach-E arrives. (The test drive of the Mach-E was just for fun, since I popped into my dealership to sign something and my sales guy...

    Advertising cars that aren't even for sale is so frustrating! And the "good" dealerships - the ones who have good customer service and are less likely to indulge in various shenanigans - are probably the ones not advertising vehicles if they're not available. The problem is the only way to find...

    I'll check them both out! Thanks for the tips.

    For sure. I'm taking a break for a bit but next time, I'm expanding my radius and will be willing to ship.

    A part of my issue is where I'm located, I'm sure. I started my search within 500 miles of Denver, thinking it's a reasonable solo road trip back and a cheap plane ticket out. I didn't really have the bandwidth to search a larger area. I'm going to take a break for a couple of weeks, since I...

    I have! Finding out info on extended range or standard range battery is difficult on those sites, especially Vroom if I'm not mixing the two up right now. I wasn't quite quick enough on a few though that fit my needs, which is what it is.

    Saw a black GT in the wild today

    We saw the GT in Broomfield. I’d love to go to an event when I get my Mach-E.

    I just don’t want to spend the time anymore. If I keep going, I’ll probably will find what I want. But I’ll still keep running into the deception (listing cars online that aren’t actually available), condescending attitudes, difficulty in getting answers to simple questions, despite getting...

    Absolutely. I am right there with you. My first job out of college, early 2000s, I worked in a business to business sales job. Not shifty or illegal like the movies “Boiler Room” or “Glengary Glenn Ross” but still a lot of management pressure, “champagne is for closers,” competitive...

    Very understandable. The track performances we’ve seen so far have been disappointing.
