Lack of a roof rack & towing is my gripe

Loving the car and hopeful the software bugs get addressed time. The one feature that is crippled with likely no reasonable fix is the frunk. The genius who decided to use a legacy cable-operated hood release with no external option should be canned. Judging from the Lightning it appears that likely happened. ?

Apparently there will be a software update to open it from the screen. There is an emergency button inside to pop the hood, so they hardware is all set up.

I wish there was a way to put a "button" to open the rear liftgate on the status bar of the main screen all the time. Four steps to open it is just dumb!

1. Press the vehicle icon located in the top corner.
2. Press CONTROLS.
3. Press Access.
4. Press the liftgate icon.

Right now, I just press the button twice on the fob. Much easier to remember!!!!

Yep. Replace the "Max Defrost" button that is hidden where no one will ever look for a climate control with a hatch release.

forgot about that silly (as in useless) emergency release. so we have an antique cable release AND a button. ? At least there's hope though.

1) The recirculating air turning off on its own, at seemingly random times. This one is 10x more annoying to me than any of the rest on this list.
2) The bug where key fob proximity doesn't work for the driver door (taking it in for the TSB 21-2091 on Wednesday for the fix)
3) Single key fob and/or needing to turn on "Share my location at all times" in the iOS FordPass app to allow PAAK to work. I find it creepy to allow any app to track my location at all times (I work in IT/Security, so I am preconditioned to be wary of such things)
4) The FordPass app alerting me that "MME is at Home. You may want to plug in now" with a five minutes delay, every time I return to the house. Also the "Accidental Unplug" alert when I unplug my car. I want to know if there's an actual accidental unplug. Maybe Ford can disable the alert if I press the disconnect button before unplugging my charging cable?
5) The fact that the flat front of the car collects bugs during highway trips. It isn't easy to clean either; my local automatic car wash doesn't do a great job with the front contour of the MME.
6) The slow boot up of the SYNC4 system. NAV searching seems to be unusable for 10-20 seconds. At least it prioritizes Wireless CarPlay audio. FYI, I've gone back to wireless, for those following my posts. The last SYNC4 or iOS update fixed the bug I was experiencing with disconnects.

Most of these can be solved with software updates, so hopefully Ford is watching this thread. I am still very happy with my purchase decision.

The car has a sensor in the passenger seat to let the car know it's occupied so that it can disable the passenger airbag when it's unoccupied. Why can't they use that same sensor to allow the passenger to access all functions of the main screen? I know, people would drop something in the seat to fool it but that would be on them, not Ford, if there was a problem. It just seems so simple to do.

It's coming in an update; Ford already promised it. The reason it wasn't turned on already is due to some regulatory hurdles they are trying to clear.

Funny you mention that -- I actually just discovered that screen yesterday when my wife was asking about the AC, and I turned recirculating on because that's how I like it with this hot Memphis weather. Had to turn it on again this morning, and then when I got back in my car after my errand, I noticed a smell enveloping the cabin (not faint, but actually overpowering) and thought, "It must be something going on in here, because I turned recirculating on!" But nope, it had turned itself off again. Maybe it has something to do with Auto being on, maybe the car just thinks it knows what's best for you in that mode.

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.
Well I guess I missed it. Sounds like you finally got your mach e. That's great, congrats and enjoy the ride.
