So with Mach-Es on their way to enthusiasts, and the lore of "issues with first-year models", this story is particularly interesting given that in the Halls of the Cult, "Dear Leader's Vehicles Are Perfect, Especially After 2.5 Years In Production"... and yet, we have this new and interesting story about the Model 3 in cold climates.

Given Ford's (insert, "Evil Legacy Manufacturer") historic track record of Cold Weather Testing, it will definitely be interesting to follow our Mach-Es as they get real-world miles on them with everyday usage experiences to see if any issues like this appear.

Now of course, if Ford has *any* issues in the Mach-E's first year, the cultists will decry "Evil Legacies" but certainly with Tesla’s 2.5 years of Model 3 Production, they're just fine and still the awesomest!

Enjoy.

Not a defect, a feature. Glad I live in Florida.

Very good feature to have a 500 dollar mobile charger stolen.

A thief is a thief.
Tailgates get stolen from Ford, GM and Dodge for years. Newer models have a lock on the tailgate but it literally took decades.

People stole gasoline.....even today not all fuel caps are lockable.

Just bought 3 new pickups last week. I haven't checked yet but I wouldn't be surprised if the spare tires can be stolen just as easily as previous model years.

Granted.
A thief is a thief, however, from the Cultists, Teslas aren't just cars, they're everything the automobile hasn't been in the last 100+ years and clearly thieves take and there couldn't possible be anything to the story of a spike in stolen charging cables because,

**"it's a Tesla and they're better than every car. Clearly, this is a design feature meant to hasten the world's transition to sustainable transportation, starting with free charging cables... too bad the 'Evil Legacies' didn't think of this selfless design feature before Elon did but all they worry about is profits."**

So there (fold arms with a harumph)!
