    Thinking ahead -- Are the batteries in the hybrid consumer replaceable?

    My 2012 Ford Fusion Hybrid is still on its first battery, and it is the older nickel metal hydride. The newer batteries are lithium based and should have better conditioning software, so I'm not worried.

    How long do you keep your vehicles?

    Retired at the end of 2015. I put less than 8000 per year on since. Currently have about 62k on a 2012 Fusion Hybrid.

    How long do you keep your vehicles?

    With the exception of severe mechanical problems (a couple of used cars that lasted 2-3 years, 1 new pickup that lasted 3 years), and 2 cars that were totaled by actions of others, I tend to keep cars for 6+ years.

    Will Maverick First Edition be produced before other models / trims?

    It would be nice if Ford would tell us, so we’d know not to get our hopes up every time scheduling rolls around. I wouldn’t cancel my order, but it is frustrating that there appears to be no communication about why this particular grouping is not being included in the scheduling.

    Will Maverick First Edition be produced before other models / trims?

    The way it looks so far, the question should be: ”Will the First Editions be produced?” So far I haven’t seen any indication of any being scheduled for October.

    CARBONIZED GRAY Maverick Club

    I ordered Carbonized Gray, because I like the color, and it was (in my opinion) the best color available for the First Edition. Others will have a different opinion, but everyone's taste is different.

    Age of targeted Maverick Buyer

    I'm 60, am replacing a Fusion Hybrid I bought new in 2012. Need to be able to haul things from warehouse stores, etc for a food pantry I work at and the Fusion is a bit on the cramped side for that. Was looking to get a small pickup for a while now, and this one seems ideal for my purpose...
