  1. Finally got it! Initial 4-hour drive home in Maverick XLT Hybrid review

    After 17 months (July 9th, 2021 order), my Maverick XLT Hybrid was ready to go. Shout out to Doherty Ford in Forest Grove, Oregon. They were awesome to deal with through this whole process and attempted to pull zero fast ones during this whole process. We had the credit application ran before I...
  2. So how feasible is flipping it, really?

    July 9th, 2021 order here. The truck was finally built in September and arrived at the dealer last week, but it was delivered with the faulty side airbag. They can’t sell it to me until it’s fixed in “Q1” next year, and based on my experience, I envision it happening May at the earliest. I have...
  3. Truck has been delivered but cannot purchase

    Well after 17 months of waiting I can officially confirm my truck exists. XLT Hybrid Lux with copilot 360 in all its glory finally made it to my dealer. Unfortunately it’s recalled with the side airbag and that won’t be available until god knows when. I’m…actually kinda okay with this? The brake...
  4. So is my Maverick under recall or not? (Shipping with the faulty side airbags?)

    Okay, so long story short, July 2021 order, originally went into production July 8th (the last day the units with faulty airbags were made apparently. Yay.). It went in and out of production multiple times until September 20th when it was officially listed as "Built" in the tracker.. My dealer...
  5. "In Production" for over two months now...

    Who here has the record for being "in production" the longest? I have a Hybrid XLT Lux with rubber floor mats and Co-Pilot 360 (a glutton for delays I guess). Ordered July 9th, 2021 and first was scheduled to go in production on May 25th. Got my window sticker then too. Then it was delayed to...
  6. Lets predict the contents of the next "we're sorry" email

    So on July 14th the lucky few of us who had mavericks scheduled for production got an email from Ford letting us know just how sorry they were for yet another day. We were told that we would be contacted "at least every 45 days". Well its August 25th, so on the 29th at 4:59pm Detroit time I...
  7. RIP to my Volvo. Post here if your car officially croaked while waiting for a Maverick

    We are gathered here today to mourn the loss of my beloved Volvo 940. I bought it in March last year for $2,000 (282,000 miles on it) with the intention of it being a short-term solution after finishing grad school. My Maverick (XLT Lux) was pre-ordered July 9th, 2021, and my only hope was that...
  8. Dealer called me to encourage canceling splash guards

    So I got a call from my dealer today. They've been super straight with me this whole time about timing and pricing, and essentially they called to say that I may be waiting a loooooooooong time for splash guards. I knew this was on the late order list and was okay with that, but they said rubber...
  9. So what kinds of things could we feasibly tow with the hybrid Maverick?

    So we have a 2,000 towing capacity. I don't own anything that would necessitate towing, but I'm getting a luxury package with the hitch and, hey, it's a truck, so it's fun to think about what we could feasibly tow with it. Here's what I thought of: -Small U-Haul trailer (empty weight of a 5x8...
  10. General tips on ordering negotiations for 2022 Maverick? Is it even possible?

    Hey everyone! So i've actually never bought a new car before, but my 30 year old Volvo is at 290,000, i'm in a good financial situation, and as a former owner of an early 90's Ranger, i'm stoked to see a compact truck so I want this to be my new car when it comes out. I'm in Oregon where we...
