  1. I will let Ford Dealer do my first oil change-price was right

    Got my Hybrid XLT truck Dec 15, 2021. This week I shopped around 2 places plus Ford Parts to get idea of what oil and a filter would cost. I was thinking I would get acquainted with the underside of my truck. I have only 5787 miles as of today and it also started displaying on the dash that an...
  2. Who still LOVES thier Maverick after 10k miles?

    got my XLT Dec 15th, 2021, on my 73rd birthday. Almost a year now but only 5800 miles. Figure it will last till I stop driving. Has worked for everything I needed a truck for or even a car for. Happy with it for sure.
  3. Oil on cap?

    Go look at your dipstick, like Bad Actor said above. If not milky on dipstick you are good. You could check coolant and see if it is milky. Can leak both ways.
  4. Anyone else unimpressed by the build quality? Some examples inside

    I am glad Ford offered the lipstick on the pig options but I only put on a little lipstick. I could have been happy with the XL but for my wife I got the XLT options plus the VERY GOOD bargain 100.00 hitch. Waited only 97 days. Will have had it a Year this Dec 15th. $23,875.00 plus tax...

  6. Another 12 second Maverick -- 93 octane with weight reduction

    I remember it had a 7500 redline and I missed a gear once and it went close to 10,000 and stayed together. A lot of rpms for a 427. It came out of a boat in Oregon and my dad said it had 625 hp. My dad sold the fastback mustang complete with motor for 2500.00 He cracked the 9inch housing...
  7. Another 12 second Maverick -- 93 octane with weight reduction

    I think I have had my Hybrid Maverick up to 85 passing once. It feels pretty peppy but not like the OP's, I am sure. Back in the day, 1977, at a local 1/4 mile drag strip I turned 11.2 at 132mph with my dad's hobby racer 68 Mustang fastback with 427 tunnel port engine, 4 speed, locked spool...
  8. Worst hybrid millage thread

    I can not remember seeing a post on this forum where the Maveric owner say they blocked traffic to get better gas mileage coasting. " So Many Threads" Really? I think most pay attention to the traffic around them. Driving "90 for an hour or so" I think your are the first to post...
  9. 🔒 Ford Credit Finance Rate Lock Program - For 2023 Models Ordered by 1/3/23

    I want to tell you my story on financing. Sept 8th, 2021, I gave the salesman at our small town only Ford/Chevy/Toyota all in one dealer a 500.00-dollar check and ordered a Maveric XLT model basic white truck with only a hitch option. A week later I see Ford 1.9% financing is ending on...
  10. Ford Ranchero [Admin: Unsubstantiated Rumor & Rendering]

    Ranchero, Not photoshopped. Sitting in my driveway.
  11. Did anybody else get an airbag recall today?

    I remember being about 8 years old riding in the back seat area of a 52 Plymouth 2 door (I think). There was me, my brother and a cousin. No back seat, we just were standing up with hands on the back of the front seats. My Aunt driving, my mom in the front seat. a truck ran a stop sign and it...
  12. How many 22MY orders with no e-mail actually got a Maverick scheduled?

    Early Sept 2021 I gave dealer 500 check. He said msrp. 2 weeks later he locked in my 1.9 percent financing and gave me a Vin and build date. 97 days (Dec 15th, my 73rd birthday) my truck was delivered to dealer. No BS. Never heard from Ford at all. I did call them once and they said I had a...
  13. How many of you ordered a Maverick without even test driving it?

    Heard about it, saw dealer that same day. Ordered with 500 deposit next day, 97 days later it arrived. I asked my Salesman if he ever drove one, he said no. I gave him the keys and we went for a ride. He drove it before I did but I drove it home with no BS from dealership and on my MSRP price.
  14. Hybrid Maverick owners with no issues / problems -- please speak up

    5000 miles. 1 recall. No issues. Does it have little quirk's, yeah. But ever car I owned did too. Nothing like it so don't expect it to be like anything else you owned. I accepted it, it accepted me.
  15. Does my dealership need to drive my truck 14 miles when addressing the under the hood safety recall? (22S47/22V484)

    Let it go as long as no dirt or dings in it. Next time you think there should be a zero mile service, ask them outright as you give them the keys "will this service require you to drive the truck off premises". If they say no, say thank you. If they say YES than ask "why is that...
  16. For Real, If I Order on Sept 15, What’s The Soonest I Can Drive It?

    I ordered my base XLT white with only a hitch on Sept 8th and 97 days later it arrived at dealer. Built Nov 30th. Yes, it is possible. Nothing from Ford (phone or email or website), everything from my Ford saleman and me poking around looking for window sticker.
  17. Is that the electric truck?

    I have owned a Prius since 2012 and on my 2016 now. Most people who ask me about the maverick I have to tell them it is a Hybrid because they can't read the 3 Hybrid emblems I now have on my truck. I just tell them it works like a Prius and most know how a hybrid works after all these years...
  18. Anyone had their Maverick show up at the dealer with no notice from Ford?

    I only found out information on my order from my dealer salesman. He was always up to date when I stopped by to chat while waiting. Never heard from Ford by any means (phone-text-emails-mail). I had a build date, a vin number and locked in financing withing the first month all from my salesman...
  19. Dash Wrap?

    Like anything else I buy, I try to take care of it best I can. Things will last as long as they last and with a little help it might be a long time. Who knows. Ford does have a warranty if the paint falls off. I washed, clayed and waxed my white truck in the first 3 days I owned it. That...
  20. Centering / Moving Rear License Plate Location ?

    My 2 cents. There are some things I hate in this world but where my license plate is mounted on my great new Maverick Hybrid truck isn't one of them.
