Quite a few chargers on that route so go for it. Just be sure to check the chargers before you leave (plugshare). Have alternates and be sure to nav to DCFC to minimize charging time.Hello, all. Looking for second opinions.
I want to take a road trip from the DC area to Chicago to visit some friends, and of our three vehicles, I most want to take my GTPE. Per ABRP, it's 750-800 miles door-to-door, with 8-9 charging stops each way.
As you may recall, I had the dreaded HVBJB failure early in 2022...sadly, early enough that it was replaced with the original "A" variant of the part. So, in my mind, I'm driving a ticking time bomb. If I make this trip in spring/summer, while the route is mostly flat, we're talking a lot of back-to-back DCFC events, and I'm afraid of being stranded at a non-local Ford dealer for a month-plus repair timeline, along with the added stress of having to get home and then back to pick up my car.
So, if you were in my shoes, would you do it? Or would you just fly and rent a car?
Don't be afraid to use the car!
