RE: Ford stops taking orders on the lightening

...How many on this 13 page thread actually own an EV? Looks like 2 with one of those being a hybrid. I actually own a Diesel, ICE, and EV so that I could join any discussion with knowledge. My vehicles combined get close to 40k a year (down from peak years). I have them to serve a specific purpose. I do not have an ebike, as I need to haul more than myself most of the time. I will continue to have a non-EV vehicle until the time comes that I can make my 754 mile trip to my daughters in less than 12 hours, since I can make that trip in 11 hours, 35 minutes.

RE: Ford stops taking orders on the lightening

Dadofourgirls, Will you buy the Bolt after the lease is finished? Too bad about the coal--but at least the emissions are far more processed than what comes out of a tail pipe. At this time, I think I will be buying the Bolt. If used vehicle pricing stays strong, it will be a deal. I have a reservation on a Silverado EV, but I think my lease will end way before I can get it. My wife would much prefer the size of an Equinox, and the EV might not be soon enough either. The Bolt is an efficient commuter, but I also pay 40% more on insurance for the Bolt than a Equinox.

RE: Ford stops taking orders on the lightening

I just paid an additional $140 fee for my Bolt in Michigan, but the lease ends in 8 months. Some may think that it is less than gas tax, and that will depend on usage. Since I am in my third year of a 36 month lease, and have 22k miles available, I might end up with less than gas tax. As noted by valhalla360, my Bolt is used as a commuter car in a family fleet. At the time of the lease, it was the only vehicle that could be leased for under $200. The level 2 charger cost me $100 after utility rebate. The freighters still bring coal to the powerplant, that generates my electricity.

RE: GM buying back 6.6L Duramax

Anyone know why GM is buying back late model 6.6L Duramax's ? Yes. But for you to know, you will need to apply for a job at GM and show up for work. :B

RE: '22 Powerstroke seems a little thirstier than the '21 was.

Why so many new trucks? Daddy own a dealership? It’s certainly not on account of feeling the need for a new truck. I think my dealership treats me pretty good on the purchase price of the new ones and I have a guy that buys my used trucks who also treats me pretty well. At the end of the day driving a new truck every year just seems to make sense. Or more often if it was not taking so long for new trucks.;)

RE: Finding a 3500 series truck to test drive....

If you are coming through Michigan, I just got my Silverado LTZ 3500 standard bed. If I am heading through PA, I will let you know.

RE: 6.6 Chevy gas engine

I had a 2020 Reg cab Dually with the 6.6 gas. I towed 15k+ of round hay bales on a gooseneck trailer. No problems. I towed my 10k travel trailer without problems. I also towed my trailer to Iowa and back with an Express with the 6.0, and 3.42 rear axle.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

In case anyone wants to watch bringing a new vehicle from concept to market in the United States. This is the story of the group of people who are doing just that in a collapsed time frame and without an internal combustion engine. It’s the story of the engineers and designers willing to take on the challenge of transforming the gas guzzling Hummer–a global brand that has as many detractors as it has fans–into a cutting edge Electric Vehicle in half the normal time frame while increasing every measure of performance and capability.

Maybe everyone forgot about the $40M tweet that prevented Bankruptcy. The market manipulations, the $Billions of deposits on Semi and pickup, that saved the company. No semi, no truck. Just propaganda.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Meanwhile in Tennessee, GM has started building the Cadillac LYRIQ. In Detroit, GM continues to actually build the Hummer EV super Truck. Nobody needs to just take drone pictures. The plant is done. Vehicles being delivered as announced. No outrageous deposits for years. Just doing what they announced. And on the vernal equinox, GM has shared more detail for the all electric Equinox. Real EVs, that will be built and sold as announced.

RE: Whistling Truck

Did you have frost or ice on the roof anywhere? I have had whistling for both of these.

RE: Delivery on new F350

Wonder how much of the supply chain issues were and are caused by semi trucker blockades ... Ben - From what I see, the supply chain was only impacted for a week, and just slowed down some parts. It was minimal, and not the cause of the current issue. It appears that key components in the supply chain had issues, and created a backlog that is difficult to work through. It appears that vehicle transport - semi-trailer, wedge carrier (3 cars), and railcar have a huge impact on vehicles getting to dealers. Vehicle transport for some plants has been a long-time issue.

RE: Delivery on new F350

The only way we can help is to quit our jobs, buy semi's and trailers, and haul vehicles. Or, if someone does not want a job on the road, they could get hired to spray bedliners. Or they could get hired to move vehicles around. Or they could build railcars. Anyone who can order a vehicle, have it assembled, shipped to dealer, and arrive is very lucky. I am guessing that your dealer may require you to take title (pay or finance) of the vehicle this month, regardless if it arrives. They need to earn a replacement.

RE: Looking for a Ford Dealer? What do you drive?

... Meanwhile, I have an appt at the Fiat dealer for an oil change....LOL Now I can convert this to a EV discussion by informing you that you could have stayed home and enjoyed a beverage if you had embraced an EV vehicle! No Oil changes! I have saved myself three trips in the last 26 months!;) When you have the LRYIQ, Mach-E, Lightening, Ioniq, etc. you will have extra time!

Does not matter whether it will work or is a better idea, it drove the stock price up! That is what matters!

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Van - I hope you do not get all your information from youtube where individuals can use sound bites to make anything. I only watched a few seconds to see that this was definitely a biased presentation, and the sound bite was "not cede our leadership". If you find a reputable source, I believe that she had indicated that GM was leader in pickup sales and was not planning to "cede our leadership". Are you trying to save your stock? And yes, if you add all the GM pickups, GM did outsell all other OEMS.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

... Why isnt Marry Barra investigated by SEC for lying to shareholders by claiming GM to be number one in EV production? Where and when did Mary publicly announce - interview, press conference, twitter, facebook, etc - that GM is the number one in EV production? You are living up to your name. Please provide evidence. Remember - GM did deliver EV pickups and EV full size vans in the US last year (2021). GM never promised a semi. GM did deliver a pickup. Where is the **** truck?

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

When is the Semi come out? Remember? The Semi? You arent Tesla customer anyway,so why do you worry so much about it? I worry because my groceries cost more because they have capital tied up waiting for their semi.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

General Motors sold only 26 electric vehicles in the fourth quarter of 2021. Tesla recorded a record-breaking 308,000 sales for its EVs in Q4 alone. GM reported 26 electric vehicles sold in the US for the 4th Quarter. GM sold over 6 million vehicles in 2021. How many EVs did Tesla sell in US? Maybe more than GM maybe less. GM is transparent in providing vehicle level reporting by countries or regions. Tesla will not identify the models or the countries or regions. But Van bought in on the hype.

RE: Truck Fire Ford SD 6.7

I was glad to have OnStar when my daughters car caught fire in a marina parking lot. I could show that the car had been driven 7 miles, when it was parked, when the fire department was called, etc. I could show that what time it had been driven the previous day, current odometer, and that there had been no warnings. This was the 2nd vehicle that was totaled under my Progressive policy. The other was an Impala that drowned overnight in Manhattan KS. Both first offers were what I expected. The Malibu was totaled in 2020, was 2 years old, and the offer was more than I paid (I stacked a bunch of incentives). The Impala was in 2019. The buy-back amount for the Impala was a steal, but I was not able to get to Kansas to retrieve it. My new tires and rims were worth more parted off the car. The items retrieved from the Malibu smelled awful, and were all thrown away.
