  1. Failed Console Gear Shift Lever

    six hours is egregious. sadly roadside is all about the local operators and for 99% of them, they're just not paid to do a good job. Whether it's Ford or Porsche or any brand, they all suffer the same lowest level. Along with bankers and politicians, towing company operators should be first with...
  2. 2021+ F-150 FORScan List / Database / Spreadsheet 💻

    that was it! the phone had an individual permission to turn off android wireless now, if you can just help me set the clock on my VCR … the blinking 12:00 is driving me crazy …
  3. Atlas Blue F-150 Lightning Pics From Irvine Spectrum, CA

    I can imagine it takes a bit of leg room away from the rear passengers. This being a parts bin prototype, that battery enclosure could (will?) change its dimensions. For back seat passengers, it works out either way – adult passengers are probably there for short trips (work, recreation...
  4. Atlas Blue F-150 Lightning Pics From Irvine Spectrum, CA

    I think it's a regular SuperCrew cab with 51½ foot bed. You could be 8 feet tall … it's a lot of space. : )
  5. Marques Brownlee aka @MKBHD takes a Mach-E 1000 mile road trip … subtitle "how first time EV owners will struggle with the Lightning"

    You'd have to filter that make for CCS (DC Fast) and then the locations thin out. Charging 1772 is not realistic for road trips. There's been numerous reports over the last two years of various software and hardware issues making it hit-or-miss to get an EA charger to work with a given car...
  6. Marques Brownlee aka @MKBHD takes a Mach-E 1000 mile road trip … subtitle "how first time EV owners will struggle with the Lightning"

    Well, it's impossible to drive any Tesla 800 miles in the same time as any gas-guzzler. If you have an overnight stop, it'll be close enough and that's about an ideal distance to cover … two EV tops of 30-45 minutes compared to one break in the gas vehicle. I agree with the nightmare scenario of...
  7. Onboard Scales

    Strange that anyone at Ford doesn't know their product (or the new features recently added to the F-150 Hybrid.) Reminds me of walking into a Land Rover dealership and speaking with the rather unassuming middle-aged lady behind the front desk only to find her to be a deeply knowledgable...
  8. 2021+ F-150 FORScan List / Database / Spreadsheet 💻

    I futzed around for a while, tried every menu, can't find a way to get iPhone or Android to connect wirelessly (other than just streaming bluetooth.) Here's the only message when attempting to get the Android 11.x phone to connect wirelessly (USB works fine.) I'll add this to my list of...
  9. 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning Reservations Reach 120K!

    I think the experience of the Bronco launch will not be repeated with any new Ford. I'm optimistic they've learned their lesson. The real challenge for the Lightning will be setting customer expectations and forcing (forcing…) the dealers to properly support and understand the Lightning and all...
  10. 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning Reservations Reach 120K!

    yep, Ford is f'ing with its customers … all manufacturing is suffering from supply side logistics in the chip industry (a typical vehicle has dozens of "modules" and each has at least one chip.) I think all the carmakers could do a better job of communicating with the customer. Apple has more...
  11. Anyone get a problem free 2021 F-150?

    That's the nature of forums – most people arrive here because they want to do something or they've got a problem to solve. My Feb built '21 F-150 Hybrid Platinum FX4 with on-board 7.2kW, lay-flat seats, work surface, max tow and 6½' bed arrived with 17 miles on the odometer, zero defects, now...
  12. Marques Brownlee aka @MKBHD takes a Mach-E 1000 mile road trip … subtitle "how first time EV owners will struggle with the Lightning"

    True. I don't expect Ford/VW etc. and EA etc. to catch up to Tesla before I'm proudly washing the mud off a Lightning. I think the comparison could have been planned to illustrate a situation where driving 1000 miles can be done "best" in each vehicle rather than driving the Ford into a dead end...
  13. I still can't believe how game changing this is (Off Grid Camping)

    I watched your video on the Pride hitch – seems like it's worth the extra length to control that much trailer behind a half ton.
  14. Marques Brownlee aka @MKBHD takes a Mach-E 1000 mile road trip … subtitle "how first time EV owners will struggle with the Lightning"

    This simple drive started with a flawed premise, struggled through a failed experiment and concluded with no conclusion … gas fills up quicker then volts … So the only purpose was to advertise Tesla (but Tesla doesn't pay for advertising they say … : ) and to book serious revenue from a video...
  15. 2021+ F-150 FORScan List / Database / Spreadsheet 💻

    well, I assume it's the phone, but it is running Android 11.x and obviously supports 5 GHz wifi. I have an old Pixel phone around here, I'll try that, for no reason other than to see if it works and I'll get the Pixel 6 next month.
  16. 2021+ F-150 FORScan List / Database / Spreadsheet 💻

    ok, well, you quoted someone asking about fixing the bugs in what they're doing. I haven't read the 14+ pages of this thread. : )
  17. 2021+ F-150 FORScan List / Database / Spreadsheet 💻

    I have a Platinum. I guess wireless is "in there" – I'll just have to go find it. I guess it could be a phone thing. I recently replaced my phone. I just futzed around with the touchscreen and the only thing I get is this USB prompt:
  18. Reservation holders for 2022 F-150 Lightning - sign in here!

    yep. It's easy to handle the transaction load, but I doubt they (the company providing this "reservation" transaction processing system) built something to process 27,000 registrations in the first 60 seconds (there are easy, cheap ways to avoid that kind of server load spike.) I think the...
  19. Failed Console Gear Shift Lever

    I think it's worth reporting the loss to the dealership and the tow company. By getting these reports they can see if there's a pattern of "another complaint when sticky-fingers-freddy was near a customer car …"
  20. Reservation holders for 2022 F-150 Lightning - sign in here!

    That's a screenshot of the reservation email, not sure how/why there's another number. Looking at the plot, every dot that's not "on the curve" must be an error.
