I love my MME. It is the best car I have ever owned. That is not to say it doesn't have a couple of flaws.... I wanted to get this thread going about what your top one or two features that annoy you the most about your MME? I'll go first.....

1) The damn cargo area cover! This thing is the most flimsy piece of junk.... lol. It never closes right when you have stuff in the trunk and if you roll the windows down at any speed higher than 50 mph it flaps back and forth in your rear view window. I like the design but they should have made it a little more sturdy or heavier so it will lay right.

2) The Sync System does not play well with CarPlay. I can see the system "fighting" with CarPlay for control over the BT phone connection when I first connect before CarPlay comes up. Then sometimes music will not play unless I stop, turn the car off, and let the system shut all the way down. Then I can start it all back up and music will play again. I recently found out you can also make a call and that will reset the audio too. Apple and Ford need to get on the same page.

3) The factory navigation is good but cumbersome.

4) As it stands, phone as a key is a joke and seldom works. I feel like if they can't get this to work properly, give everyone a second key. Even my ACTUAL key is not recognized right away. Its like the pocket the key is in has to be right next to the car for it to unlock. I am going to change batteries in the key and see if that is the issue......

Again, I love my car but that is not to say that Ford doesnt have room for improvement.

The most annoying thing about the mache? hmmmm. I would say all the great info here and help you can find on the mache but.................. All the bola bola Gago threads that are just useless.

But hey what do I know. The holiday inn was fully booked so I missed out.

I just want the radio settings to be remembered without selecting memory seats to trick it back to last settings.

Actually no, the air vents for the driver seat can't be adjusted in a way that makes me happy (cold air blowing in my face). The steering wheel and/or my hands block it.

About the only things I can think of on the Mustang Mach E that are as designed and “annoy” me are:
  • Puddle lamps don’t stay on regardless of mirror position, until doors are opened, then closed.
  • Navigation system has too few user icons and they are all monochromatic / hard to quickly distinguish
  • SiriusXM 360L does t appear to support Xtra channels even though the marketing material implies it does with repeated references to “streaming content”.

1. My cargo area screen stays in place just fine for me. I don't go rolling the windows down at speeds above 50 mph though. I like quiet.
2. I personally haven't noticed that. Interesting.
3. Factory Nav works fine for me. It's not annoying and it just tuons, it is accurate and even pronounces Hawaiian names pretty accurately. Waze, on the other hand, frequently freezes up and gets lost. Oh and it butchers Hawaiian.
4. PAAK works perfect for me. Every time. So does the fob, although I haven’t used it since the drive home from the dealer. The only time it even hesitates is when it’s in my back pocket. But yeah, they should’ve given a second keyfob.

It may not have the Xtra channels, but it does support streaming content.

The most annoying thing is all the attention it gets.

From people on the highway trying to ask questions while driving, people in stores arguing about whether it is "really a mustang", random people coming up to ask "what kind of car is that" or "do you like it?"

And that is just part of the weekend!

If by annoying feature we mean something that is working as intended that we’d rather not have there, I would say the HVAC and radio lockout in reverse and navigation lockout while moving.

The Xtra channels are a key feature of streaming. The rest of the content is pretty lame.

I’ve never listened to the Xtra channels, so I can’t comment on that. But I’ve used the on-demand feature for Stern a few times, which was handy.

Hmmm… that’s a great point. Are we talking bugs or features?

If stuff that’s working as intended, I’d say my top 3 are:
1. Driver instrument screen buzz (hey - Cors says this is a Normal Operating Condition”).
2. Takes too long for the front and overhead cams to switch on when parking.
3. Control lockouts while moving.

If we’re talking bugs, my top 3 are:
1. FordPass is almost useless when it comes to managing and monitoring charging.
2. Cannot get the blasted Alarm Internal Motion Sensors to stay Off
3. Actually the two above are far and away the most annoying to me.
