1 - the 2.3 is fine on the lighter 2-door.
2- Biggest downside is that an auto is not a stick. Who want's to drive a soulless automatic?
3 - It's fine, although you may want better tires. Although I think that's true for all factory tires on all cars.
4 - Yeah, the Bronco is like an AR-15...
Stick or Auto?
I normally expect about 40k on fronts, and 120k on rears on any vehicle I drive (stick).
Wife got about 25k on brakes on her Expedition.
Tire life.... I expect factory tires to be the most absolute garbage that barely meets DOT specs. I have 10k on my tires and am really...
Flip works for a Ford dealership. He either got one, or two. Actual Level 3 Fast chargers. Depending on how much trenching they had to do, and whether they needed new transformers, a single unit can run a quarter mil install.
Not level 2, Level 3. Level 2 are for charging overnight, or "feelz". We have free Level 2 chargers (free as in the city/taxpayer is paying for the electricity) downtown, and you get 3-5 miles of range while eating lunch.
I voted keep for a long time (I normally keep a vehicle until at least 160,000 miles, we have one with 260k miles on it).
However, I may be taking a job in MT. In which case, I would likely trade in the Base for a BD. The wife's STX for an FX4 would probably go first though.
You know the Tesla supercharger cables are liquid cooled right, and have been for years (at least the Version 3 chargers)
The big issue for a lot of folks is home charging. I could run an EV just fine for most things, and borrow the wife's truck for everything else. I have a reasonably new...
Restart after stall by hitting the clutch is not part of A/SS. All newer Fords do this whether A/SS is on or disabled. It's a separate function.
(and by newer Fords, I guess I mean Bronco and Mustang, because that's all that's left)
Zero seconds. Zero seconds is the right answer if I have the Air Conditioning on. Any interruption in my A/C is unacceptable.
Fortunately I ordered a stick, and I never have it idling in neutral except at the drive-up ATM or to drop off the mail, but in my wife's F-150 it is simply...
