I agree. I had high hopes for the Mach e but he didn’t think to highly about its design.
I still haven't driven a Mach-E. I need an oil change on my Ranger soon and may have to test drive one.

My dealer had two and they both were on the show room floor. But after seeing out of spec road trip on YouTube he had so many charging issues. Also sandys reviews wasn’t very good. I want to get my wife the Mach e but I won’t now.

This is why Europe has a lot of EV vehicles there. Their gas prices are very high but it's more economical for them to run EV because they have a lot of nuclear power plants and are still building them. There's no way our grid will be able to sustain all these EV vehicles even in 20 years using just wind and solar.

Unfortunately our future model is shaping up to look a lot more like the former Eastern Europe...
1] Get government permission
2] Order your new vehicle
3] Pay full price up front
4] Wait 7 years for delivery
5] Take what you get and like it
6] If you're lucky, it will rival a Trabant in quality and performance.
7] Try to charge it during brown outs with electric ration stamps
7] Good news though... it WILL have a HUGE screen in the dash and Bluetooth!!!

I'm liking my bicycles more each day, providing I don't end up waiting in line for a potato for the calories to power it!

Have they removed the "Mustang" logo as they should, and now just call it the "Mach E" ?

It had the mustang on the front hood for sure. Are they removing it? It would make more sense not being a mustang.

I think they completed the same trip, or another long trip and had 0 issues the second time.

Still need electricity to power that. Lots of it.

And Europe has fewer cars by population than the US.
no doubt..

Most other developed countries have a better public transportation infrastucturre than the US. Most of the US population is concentrated on the two coasts. There isn't any possible way to feed the NE electrical grid from AZ. Simple physics rules out that idea. May as well pave over California with solar panels, nobody wants to live there anymore,anyway.

How about those dampers? Does this guy originally posted about review dampers?
Do we think dampers owners are mainly one political persuasion or another? Maybe a poll?
Are damper owners mainly green energy or fossil fuel?
These are the things we need to know!
