Please keep in mind, that hundreds of petrol cars are burning each day in the while world and no one is afraid to buy one. These kind of news doesn't makes me nervous.

And - your are right - we are a community! Lets keep us in contact. The OEM isn't as quick as we can be!

Hope the MME is not rushed and fires or brake issues are resolved.
It's a new model car, radically new, so you have to accept risks and accept Ford will fix them. Otherwise wait.

I waited THREE YEARS before buying Model 3 and it still had issues.

MEE will have recalls for sure. Soon enough this forum is full of people posting issues with their new vehicle, especially with the first production year. Just being realistic...
Exactly. I don't frequent this forum as much due to all the MME fanboys bashing all other EV's while praising a car that is not even out yet. The recent Telsa recall has a large thread here about how terrible it is, car is junk, company is junk, etc. Then a Ford recall for battery fires is met with "good news is...", "silver lining is...", "MME is totally different..."....LOL. This forum used to laugh at the other EV forum fanboys...now this one is just the same.

Once the MME is out, there will be lots of issues, "I thought it would...", "why does it...", etc. Glad at least some are realistic that the first model year will have issues. We all can hope they are software for OTA fixes versus hardware/batteries/inverters (polestar).

yup. my wife keeps saying over and over "I can't believe you're buying a first year car."

I remind her that the coupon I am using to buy it adds up to 10x all the coupons and "deals" she has ever gotten in her life

Maybe there's a reason why we keep talking about the massive, ongoing quality problems Tesla has. Maybe - just maybe - it's because they have massive, ongoing quality problems?

I mean, I know that's a crazy idea.

And yes, I am aware that somehow me pointing out cars having fan-created checklists of dozens of things to check before accepting delivery, or a roof flying off fresh from the pickup, or tailgates regularly failing to close, or back seats not being attached, or random big box store parts being used in construction, or seat belts not being attached, etc. etc. makes me anti-Tesla instead of pro-reality.

Or, maybe - just maybe - it's possible to recognize the good (changed perception of EVs, charging network, etc.) and the bad (unbelievably craptastic quality, clear gaming of range estimates, etc.) without actually being a fanboy.

And if you UK folks can sort out a few more before my GT gets delivered, I would appreciate it
