  1. First check engine light, hybrid xlt

    I had the check engine light happen to me with the exception I had only driven it 68 miles and had it 24 hours. The dreaded yellow check engine popped up on the dash and stayed even with turning off the engine and restarting. Off to the dealership it went. Malfunction Indicator Lamp -...
  2. List your Awesome Maverick Dealer Here

    If you live in the DFW area, I highly recommend Bill Utter Ford in Denton TX. Jason Robinson is the internet sales manager I dealt with. It was the easiest transaction I have made in my entire life. No "high pressure" sales tactics, honored the MSRP for the Maverick that I ordered and signed at...
  3. 15K Miles Review and Stuff I Hate

    I'm with you OP. My first impression when I drove the Maverick home from the dealership was what the hell? What I read from posts is not what I encountered. I love the acceleration, MPG from the hybrid, size of the vehicle, no blind spots and cold AC. I don't even have a negative comment on...
  4. Who here plans to order a MY2023 Maverick even if they already have one or ordered a MY2022 Maverick?

    I have a hybrid, XLT with lux package and Co Pilot 360 and enjoy it immensely. I love the power it has in town and accelerating to speed to merge into highway speed. I love its MPG as I have always been a fan of fuel efficient vehicles. I love it makes a positive impact on the environment...
  5. 1970s Freewheeling Maverick Makeover

    In reference to the name "Aso Azul", who made the letters or badging for your truck? Are the letters stainless steel?
  6. I *love* my little hay-hauling truck

    What other farm / ranch activities have you done with the Maverick? Would you recommend it for daily use for rural ranchers / farmers who might be looking for a smaller truck?
  7. Rising cost of gas, war, inflation and the Maverick [WARNING: NO POLITICS]

    When I was 18 years old (1970), gas prices were 19 cents per gallon in Texas. In fact, we would have "gas wars" with competing stations lowering the price temporarily. So, what does one do when you have cheap gas prices, purchase a 1974 Pontiac Grand Prix SJ with a 455 cubic inch engine, V8, 4...
  8. Hybrid Tech's future

    You know I was watching CNBC one morning about a year ago and a group was talking about the innovation of EV's. One of the members of the group said the next phase in EV cars was electrifying the roads so you would charge the car when driving down the highway. The group laughed as I think they...
  9. Hybrid Tech's future

    My thoughts exactly about the Quik Trips ...why have they not added EV stations? Actually, I was driving home from Colorado this past August and stopped at a Pilot Travel Center (new build) outside of Wichita Falls, Tx and it had about 10 Tesla charging stations. What a nice surprise! This...
  10. Hybrid Tech's future

    Ford Authority in November 2021 reported Ford Motor Company and Purdue University have been working on a new charging station that would charge an EV in about the same amount of time as a gas refuel. Ford has recently applied for a patent for this new technology. My assumption is Ford sees...
  11. Naming Your New Maverick

    Alto Blue, Hybrid XLT. Name: "Wildfire" after a mythical Native American horse. A song released in the mid 70's by Michael Martin Murphy I heard on the radio upon returning from a college rodeo in Lubbock, TX. "Wildfire" and I plan on running the prairies (and interstates) to return to Big...
  12. [UPDATE 3/22/22] Dead Hybrid Maverick at 1 month old after getting "Deep Sleep Mode" messages. [Fixed by software update.]

    What if the electrical problems have something to do with the concept of the Faraday Cage? Something not grounded correctly (my assumption). I took this example from Wikipedia: Examples of Faraday Cage uses: Electronic components in automobiles and aircraft utilize Faraday cages to protect...
