  1. Tailgate soft close fix

    Got it online, aftermarket. It was about $50 I think. Works great, until... Now works great again. It should have already been there, especially on the Lariat, But, it was easy to install.
  2. Tailgate soft close fix

    So, you purchased the aftermarket tailgate softclose device. It works great, until it doesn't. What happens after a few months of opening and closing is that the cable starts to go behind the ball of the actuator when you close the tailgate. Then, when you go to open again it gets stuck and...
  3. Hybrid hard breaking / thud at low speeds

    Many of us have experienced this issue. It was also discussed in another thread. At very low speed, (<5mph) the brakes will grab very hard when you try to gently come to a stop. A thud is heard many times, which sounds like the regenerative braking locking up. Nothing from Ford yet on this...
  4. Odd Brakes in Hybrid Maverick

    Yes, I too have this same issue. Its when you're creeping below 5mph and have to apply the brakes. Its not even possible to stop without the brakes grabbing 100% when you just barely touch them. This would be my only real complaint, but I just know its an accident waiting to happen when...
  5. November Hybrid Orders United

    For those of you still waiting like we all did (9 months here), I will give you my thoughts if I were in your shoes. I would delete ANY Dealer Installed options/accessories. Get those after you take delivery, on your own. I have had my Maverick 2 months now and still have not received my 2...
  6. What’s this for?

    Its the Chick Filet "instant order" button. You get pushed to the head of the line, but can only initiate once per week...
  7. A Detailers Maverick Experience: Thin Paint, Ceramic Coating, Etc.

    Really great info. I am already looking into having this done for mine. Appreciate the post!
  8. That awkward cubbie next to the infotainment screen

    Very nice indeed. Certainly cooler looking that my painted wood block, but it does the trick as well.
  9. That awkward cubbie next to the infotainment screen

    Finally got my phone mount finished on the dashboard...
  10. Charging ion batteries

    The video is correct. He was a bit extreme but correct. To test yourself, all you have to do is drive around a parking lot (flat of course) so that it stays in electric mode fully. In about a mile (a little more when on flat ground, going slow) you will see the electric bar (if you have the...
  11. Received my Maverick today - wrong door panel/handle (not complaining!) Better Pics

    Pretty funny, no doubt. BUT, I would demand it be replaced. Over the long haul, you'll get tired of the elephant in the room lack of quality control...
  12. Today is my lucky day

    OK, "your lucky day" is just seeing a new Mav. Let's put this in perspective! - A "good" day is seeing a new Mav. on the road for the first time. - A "great" day is getting the email that yours is at the Dealer. - An "amazing" day is picking it up and "not" getting F'd by the Dealer in some...
  13. Finance incentives during initial order honored?

    My truck was delivered to the Dealer on March 31, the last day of 0% financing. My sales rep. was off that day so I called the finance guy and left a vm saying I wanted to get that rate even if I had to pay on that day and pick up the next. He did not return my call, so when I picked up the...
  14. Missing Dealer Installed Accessories

    Don't know if anyone else has had this problem. But I'm guessing so. Picked up my new Mav. a month ago. When I asked about my 2 Dealer installed options (front hood wind deflector and rear bed LED lights), they looked at me like I had 4 heads. They then said they don't know where they are...
  15. Creative Ideas for Dash Cubby Storage

    See: "That awkward cubbie next to the infotainment screen..." thread from a few days ago. Several ideas there.
  16. Anyone have trouble with auto door lock/unlock?

    Thanks for the quick fix. Mine too stopped working, so I deactivated and then re-activated and now its working again... Much appreciate!
  17. Don't ruin it for the old guys!

    I've still got my V8 Sportrac that sounds like a boat when I need the old-school truck fix. But I find I'm continually reaching for the Mav. keys bc its so satisfying to drive with its great gas mileage and cool tech. I'm 60 and love the attention I get with this truck. Add my doodle in the...
  18. Love my Maverick, but the wife hates it.

    I love my Mav as well, but I much prefer the sound of my 2007 Sportrac V8 with Flomasters on it. While it's not a big truck as well, it growls like a beast going down the road. Perhaps I can install an external speaker on the Mav and pipe that sound out as I'm driving this little sewing machine...
  19. What is this thing in the jack kit?

    It opens the slot in the CD player so that you can use it?
  20. Regional Forum -Would like to get a regional Maverick list going for South Carolina
