  1. Waiting to flat-tow a 2025 Maverick may take a long time.

    Given that Ford's 2025 Maverick pictures show the ACC radar unit now down in the lower grill opening for 2025s, I'm thinking that current towing baseplates will be out. If you are waiting to buy a 2025 Maverick to tow it, you may have another long wait for the baseplate makers. It took Demco...
  2. Hybrids approved to use synthetic blend now????

    Page 369 of the 2023 Manual notes Hybrid Mavericks require full synthetic oil. I had commented in response to a Facebook post, and someone replied (with zero reference) that Ford had recently approved Synthetic Blend now...and the manual just isn't updated. I question the truth of a statement...
  3. 2023 towing instructions vs 2024 towing instructions

    I was helping someone this AM who had issues, and realized that the 2023 manual is different than the 2024 manual in regards to the daily (and every 6 hours or less) procedure. We also determined that Ford left is unclear that you turn the truck COMPLETELY OFF to flat-tow. Do not leave it in...
  4. Demco Flat-Tow Setup Instructions, with comparison to Blue Ox and Roadmaster

    There are quite a few threads in MTC about flat towing that I've been involved with, and I have gotten quite a few PMs about the install from members here as well as a Facebook group. So I made a file. I had quickly put together a file in late January, but when I reviewed it, I realized that...
  5. Has anyone installed the DEMCO Baseplate on a 2024 yet?

    While I do not believe there is any difference in fitment, and can verify that the DEMCO baseplate fits a 2023 well, I am getting a lot of folks asking me about putting it on a 2024. DEMCO is still being very shy about it, saying they only know that their baseplate will fit the 2023, and cannot...
  6. First issue on our week-old 2024 Lariat - Windshield washer fluid

    Tiny issue, but I haven't seen it posted before. The truck only has 28 miles since delivery. My wife drove it to the library and when she started it to head back, the screen lit up with a warning that the windshield washer fluid was low. We have not used the washer, and it seemed fairly full...
  7. Anyone seen a better Accessory discount code from Ford?

    I need at least one item from Accessories.ford for my 2024. Over the last year at different times, I have seen 20% off codes and usually always a 15% off code. This month, the only one I've seen so far is a 10% code. I know the 20% code was hard to find last year, so I thought I'd ask. TIA
  8. DID Ford remove the heated windshield wipers on the 2024 Lariat?

    I know there was talk of it being removed, along with the keypad, but my tracker still shows the Lariat Luxury Package as including the following: Does anyone have a 2024 Lariat that can determine if it is still there or not? Someone in a FB group posted the picture of their windshield...
  9. Someone has been joyriding my Maverick in Mexico

    About a week ago, I requested access on FordPass to my being-built 2024 Maverick. A few days ago, I noticed that the picture in the FordPass App matched the Carbonized Gray BAP. But today, as I was doing something on the computer, my phone beeped and told me "You have successfully been...
  10. Someone has been joyriding my Maverick in Mexico

    About a week ago, I requested access to my being-built 2024 Maverick. A few days ago, I noticed that the picture in the FordPass App matched the Carbonized Gray BAP. But today, as I was doing something on the computer, my phone beeped and told me "You have successfully been authorized to...
  11. Ford $500 Military Discount - good 11/1/23 through 12/4/23

    This seems to be a new/different discount. While the old Ford Military Discount had some rules about being discharged within a certain time period and such, this appears to be for anyone with Military experience. I am registered with ID.ME and so I went to their website and entered FORD in the...
  12. Three new 2023 Mavericks on my dealer's lot

    There are currently 3 new 2023 Mavericks on my dealer's lot here in Gillette, WY. Two are EB AWD XLTs (Iconic Silver and Shadow Black) which have an online listed price of MSRP +$1500. The third is a loaded Lariat Hybrid Area 51, with the MSRP listed as the online price. The Window Stickers...
  13. Ford Installation Sheet location

    I know last year I was able to find a page that listed all of the various Ford accessory items with links to the installation sheets. I'm not sure if they rearranged things...but I can not find it. Can someone point me to the main page? Thanks in advance.
  14. Does anyone have a 2024 Window Sticker yet?

    Last year, the window stickers were created about a week before the actual build occured ...mine was dated 1/4/23, 8 days before the 1/12/23 build date. I know there are several of us with 10/16 build weeks in the tracker, but I still don't see a window sticker when I check the link provided...
  15. Recall 22S47 -removal of active shutter vanes

    Can someone provide the actual instructions Ford sent to the dealer as to how to remove the shutter vanes? My group and internet searches aren't getting me that sort of detail. The back story: I am still working to get a Demco Towbar baseplate to work properly on my 2023 Lariat Hybrid. We...
  16. July 17...Order bank opening...was 47 days ago.

    Has anyone gotten this year's promised "45 day sorry" email from Ford?
  17. Deep Sleep Lariat Door Handle behavior

    I just noticed that when I get the FordPass Deep Sleep notification on my phone, the following happens to my 2023 Lariat: 1. Touch the DRIVER'S door handle to unlock, and the courtesy dome lights and bed light do not come on (Old news) but the door WILL unlock by touch. 2. Touch the PASSENGER'S...
  18. X-Plan information

    I stumbled on an old thread that identified membership in Veterans Advantage as providing eligibility for X-Plan pricing, so I did a little researching to try to find what "Ford Partner Recognition groups were out there. I found some more info, but I could not find a complete list. Easy...
  19. Parking, Park, and Parking Brake

    I have been doing this all wrong according to the manual. When I park, I usually stop, manually spin the dial to Park, even though I know the truck will do it for me when I turn it off. (I don't want to get into the habit of trusting the truck to do it as I drive other vehicles). Then I...
  20. DEMCO Towbar Baseplates are coming for Flat-Towing the Maverick Hybrid!

    Exciting Flat-Tow news! I sent an email query to Demco as I knew they were planning on producing a Maverick Baseplate. I won't install Roadmaster Baseplates that call for the destruction of the lower Active Shutter System, and the Blue Ox Baseplates are very difficult to get a clean install so...
