  1. Past hour
  2. It’s hard to judge the mood of the entire two million owners. While some owners have been really let down, the later vehicles seem to be holding up better.

    7.3 teardown

    Where is part 2 of the tear-down?
  5. Ford will be lucky to get that far. It was sad seeing these former Ford owners say they will never buy another Ford...

    https://evadoption.com/resources/federal-electric-vehicle-ev-tax-credit-works/how-the-federal-ev-tax-credit-amount-is-calculated-for-each-ev/ This verifies how to use the formula... and a 13.6kw PHEV should have a $6,503 credit.

    Key battery low replace soon display

    What part of THERE ARE TWO BATTERIES” was confusing? You only changed half of them.

    GT Tax Credit

    The 2020 530e xDrive has a 12kw battery and a $5,836 tax credit. That follows the formula exactly, incuding the first $417. $2,500 + $417 + (12-5)×417 = $5,836. So the Aviator's credit is either a mistake or the final battery size is smaller than advertised... for a $6,042 tax credit the battery size would be 12.494kw.
  9. I seem to remember he mentioned not buying for 2 years until issues were corrected.......may be i viewed the unredacted version.....
  10. The only thing I don't like about the 10.1 inch screen is the camera image placement. Yes it is too small but there are 3 buttons at the bottom that are very easy to use if you want a larger rear-view image. It fills the width of the screen if you really need to see what's behind you. It was unfair of him to make the pinch and zoom gesture for that camera image without mentioning that it has 3 view buttons below the image. I agree with other critics who said the 2 camera images should be stacked to fill up more of the screen but when you're in navigation mode or other modes the vertical screen really does show you more information than the horizontally oriented one, which would require more scrolling to see complete lists and such. No vehicle is perfect and he's a very finnicky critic. But the fun-to-drive factor of this vehicle not to mention its stunning looks and presence along with comfort and premium features usually not offered on mainstream brands make it stand out from the pack. Flaws and all this vehicle is never boring! I've had this Explorer ST now for about 2 months and I'm very happy with this purchase decision over the Lincoln Nautilus or Ford Edge ST!

    GT Tax Credit

    Gov Math $2500(5KW) + (8*417)=5836 + half of 417 for the half KW $206 = $6042 I think the extra $417 is a typo. If you do the $2500 for the first 5 then 8 X 417 for the next 8 and however they come up with the other number, they must have an exact # of KW.

    I've been silenced! Kidding, understood (though we were completely civil and respectful, I get that this isn't reddit).

    Key battery low replace soon display

    Currently using only one of the Intelligent Access Keys, the other orignal one is stored away in the house which is located a good distance from the pickup and has never been used. I followed instructions in the owners manual which indicated to use one coin-type three-volt lithium battery CR2032 (which I purchased new and tested out good) inserted it with the + facing upward as directed. The original battery that I removed tested out still good but replaced it anyway. The key fob works well but I still am getting the display "key battery low replace soon" which I can manually clear by pressing OK button.

    I like the direction Ford is taking with the "wagon" concept. Nothing wrong with variety.
  17. I read that story yesterday. I thought it was weird they talked about the make and model of the car. I can’t wrap my mind around this behavior. These people have mental disorders.
  18. "Until these people are wiped from the earth we are destined to be grossed out." No pun intended I'm sure.
  19. There are pros and cons to existing motorized urban transportation options. If a service like GM Cruise Origin can provide a significantly lower cost than traditional ride hailing and individual car ownership, a significantly better quality travel experience than public transit, and better safety than all the other options, a lot of people will be interested. Public transit (buses & trains) Pros: Inexpensive for customer Typically high volume & utilization of vehicles (varies by urban area, though) Cons: Generally low quality Constraints on service territory Corruption at transit agencies Ride hailing with human drivers (current Uber, Lyft system) Pros: Convenient Higher quality than public transit Typically high volume & utilization of vehicles (varies by urban area, though) Cons: Expensive for customer Criminal activity by driver contractors Individual automobile ownership Pros: Higher quality than public transit Allows ad-hoc travel easily Cons: Expensive for customer Very low utilization of vehicles

    I appreciate what you guys do, but with all due respect I thought that was about as civil as you could get.

    You don't expect people here to stay on subject, do you?

    Ok guys, didn't need to nuke the thread, but I did some moderating of it-talk about the product, not the guy in front of it. I don't want this to turn ugly.
  24. May be ford should consider not buying train depots and consider investing in something like this inner urban people mover...it actually makes sense
  25. So here is the one thing to consider-how many people are going to actually want to share a ride with someone else in a transportation "pod" like this-this isn't like a bus or metro/subway where there are other people working on the bus/train can intervene in a situation. Once stories of people getting mugged/raped/etc get out into the news, that is going to be a black eye to these companies. If you limit it to one person-what is the point? All your doing is adding traffic to the roads. Lots of this seems like solutions searching for problems.

    It would be interesting to know if Ford intends to build the Fusion crossover with the next gen Edge in Canada or keep it going at Hermosillo. I guess it depends how much production space is needed for Transit connect and baby Bronco plus the TC based pick up......
