For me, L seems about the same at slower speeds but yeah....much less aggressive at higher speeds. I like to believe this change is for increased longevity and if that is the case then I can certainly live with it. Small adjustment to make for me IMO.With a fully updated car as of Friday, I can say that the brake regeneration change is very noticeable. I used to turn on L, and when I came off the accelerator that car would noticeably brake. It barely brakes at all now. It will take some getting used to this change.
Also, while I'm not a FORSCan expert, I used it a bit on my 2013 F-150. I am of the belief that while some things can be changed back to "As Built", whether with FORScan or FDRS, you can't turn back the clock on everything and make the entire vehicle just like it came off the line.
Also, to point out some things on warranty. First, Ford has not made any statement on whether a vehicle will be updated, whether by OTA or by the dealer, after the expiration of the 36 months / 36,000 miles bumper to bumper warranty. Second, any issue that you had before warranty expired that continues after warranty expired, still needs to be handled by them for free. So, if they did an update before it expired and that broke something, they'd have to fix it after warranty expired. Third, if they do updates after warranty expired and that breaks anything, they'll have to fix it.
I expect OTA updates to continue after warranty expiration. I expect dealer updates for non-crucial things to go away in the next few months. Dealers are unhappy, the process is slow, and Ford has to figure out the OTA process ASAP. You cannot have a CEO proclaim that vehicles will be updated overnight, and then not do so.
The 21P22 says vehicles over 36k miles are excluded but the 21G01 does not have that limit so in theory I should be able to go back to the dealer and get them to complete that update and then maybe my car will work normally again?
Or I could get the FDRS license and do it myself but if I blank my driver's screen like the dealer did to your car then I might have to pay for the replacement. So, maybe I better not try it myself.
