  1. Ahem...last week...ahem. 😄
  2. Ha! Like I'll remember that when I hop out with the truck running!

    New Light & Medium Duty News

    The MY of the truck doesn't matter, does it? Doesn't the date the truck is produced determine the emissions regs?
  4. Good news! On the one road trip we've taken with the Mach-E, this would have come in handy. It would have saved us a stop as the Tesla chargers were right next-door to our destination, but we had to stop at an EA charger on the way home.
  5. Wow, C crew has to suck! Day shift two days, 24 hours off, then night shift two days? Yuck!
  6. Not completely true. My wife nicknamed her 2020 Escape Karen. She could be a real b*$ch with all her sensors going off when there appeared to be no need! LOL!
  7. LOVE the color and the wheels. The "grille," not so much.

    GM Reportedly to drop "Ultra Cruise"

    Wait, what? What's all that stuff you are referring to?
  9. Exactly! We wouldn't have a Mach-E if we couldn't charge it at home. We've got about 2500 miles on it so far, and have used public chargers twice, both on a trip to "the city" (STL). The first charge was at a free public charger (L2, slow), the second was at a fast charger. Neither was a problem, we just had to walk a little farther to the stores we were going to. It's wonderful not having to go to gas stations, especially when it's so freaking cold out!

    Production Tesla Cybertruck Spied

    I don't think that is appropriate for such an awesome, world-changing vehicle. If we don't all switch to electric vehicles in the next 3 years, the world will end. Sir. 😄

    GM Q4/2023 Sales Results

    Likewise with an Escape and Corsair.
  12. Looks like it's only on the commercial vehicles, which have to be rated at a certain RPM, not the max value. They just grabbed the value at the wrong RPM.
  13. Our Escape windshield was a rock magnet. At least 3 repairs, then a replacement 3 days before we traded it (which was free because the insurance's claim system was down at that time so they waived the deductible due to our hassle). All in 28k miles!
  14. A $4500 windshield has absolutely nothing to do with what propels the vehicle. That's the stupidity of the CyberTruck! Those other issues are specific to the Rivian and NOT EVs in general. Sure, a little more car has to be taken into account to make sure the battery isn't compromised, but it's not that drastic. Our Mach-E costs a bit more to insure than the Escape it replaced. However, the sticker price is double the sticker of the Escape, so I expect the cost to insure to be higher. Kinda like, common sense, you know?
