I thank you for your encounters with problems and coming out ok. I have read too many reviews and because I’m not the most tech savvy person here, I just don’t think I’m ready to buy a MME right now. I also follow Chill & EV and they had multiple issues with one being the charge port wouldn’t close. Thank youLast month we drove up the highest paved road in North America. That's Mount Evans Scenic Byway in Colorado if you didn't know. My goal was to see how much battery we would use going up and then how much we would regen when coming down.
The drive up was spectacular! It is a narrow road with views for miles and miles, but no guardrails. Of course, one of the benefits of an EV is that you don't lose horsepower at elevation like you do in an ICE vehicle.
Going back down, we were getting a lot of regen. It was really cool seeing the range and battery percentage go up as we went down the mountain.
Unfortunately, we hit a snag on the decent. The car threw a One Pedal Mode fault and then eventually a bunch of others. It was a nerve racking time getting back home! But... in the end, Ford analyzed the car and did a bunch of updates. Car checks out and we have since driven 2,400 miles with some milder descents with no issues at all.
Here's the whole long video. (If you want to just skip the the problems, it is just past the 28:30 mark.)
