I'm with you on the range issue. With regard to temperature, Tesla is the best-selling car in Norway, so I think they should be OK there (but probably with some drop in range).
I agree. After months of planning my F-150, I just placed an order for a RAM Limited.
It wasn't just the rust and other problems, it was the complete lack of concern that Ford displayed towards its customers. I finally decided I didn't want to give them my money.
It's still very useful for those of us who don't have a lot of payload in the truck. For example, I pull a horse trailer and usually drive alone. All the weight is in the trailer, so payload isn't as much of an issue for me as towing capacity.
Has anyone else experienced the alarm going off when the truck is locked with the trailer still attached?
This is a dealbreaker for me if it happens to everyone. I tie my horses to the trailer and lock my truck, then work out of the trailer. If the alarm goes off it will scare the crap out of...
For those of us towing livestock, it's important to be able to look through the front windows of the trailer to make sure they're OK.
I also mount a camera inside my trailer, connected to the main screen, and I need to be able to check it periodically.
All of you saying "it's not just Ford" seem to have missed the fact that the OP ordered in September! People who ordered much later have received their trucks. And the chip shortages were not an issue until the last couple of months.
There's no excuse for making a customer wait this long.
Many of us don't WANT to do DIY oil changes, rust treatment or anything else. And we don't WANT to spend $70k+ on a truck that has more rust than trucks many years older.
You can fix it easily and are happy to do so? Good for you. The rest of us want our new trucks to look new.
