  1. Minor rear ender or total loss? Answer inside. [Updated with underbody photos of damage]

    I would collect all the insurance I could and ask your Ford dealer first dibs on a replacement Maverick from a cancelled order... that damage would be a royal pain for any body shop to tackle,, let along getting it to drive down the road in a straight line. It could drive fine as it is, but...
  2. Minor rear ender or total loss? Answer inside. [Updated with underbody photos of damage]

    Both times hitting my Honda Element: 1) Elderly lady hit me at a red light, Large Lexus sedan, i was standing still, hitch went all the way thru her front plastic bumper. Felt really bad for her. 2) Yeaks, brand new Mercedes sports car, LADY had just picked up her new car that morning, not...
  3. Minor rear ender or total loss? Answer inside. [Updated with underbody photos of damage]

    I'd put my money on a trailer receiver attached to a steel cross member underneath the bumper that's rated to have a 300 lb hitch weight and pull 2,000 lbs versus a plastic bumper. I've been rear ended twice with a hitch on, both times zero damage to my vehicle and both hitting vehicles had...
  4. Minor rear ender or total loss? Answer inside. [Updated with underbody photos of damage]

    Simply has to have a tow hitch "receiver", its a no brainer for most to NOT order a hitch receiver on any maverick for $100,,,from others experience it is harder and more expensive to order an after market hitch later...if you don't order a hitch receiver the entire rear plastic bumper is one...
  5. Minor rear ender or total loss? Answer inside. [Updated with underbody photos of damage]

    As said, good reason for a trailer hitch. I'll be headed to Harbor Freight for one of these today $27 rubber hitch guard steps....should provide a little protection...not certainly not a 20-30 mph impact; hoping it fits when my garage door closes. Plus a bonus trailer hitch lighting.
  6. Minor rear ender or total loss? Answer inside. [Updated with underbody photos of damage]

    Ever tried to sale a vehicle with a "Salvage Title"....? not easy next month or 6 yrs down the road. I'd definitely pursue the buy back option but only if the settlement money was in your favor. Like in "get a firm committed body damage repair quote", but then shop the smaller body shops for...
  7. Emergency Stuff in Your Truck? What Do You Carry For Emergencies?

    Just added: Thx -Good Ones 1) Recent article noted that most people do NOT know their home/spouse's cell phone number since they are dependent on their phone's contact list. No cellphone no calls. I have lost a wallet on an out of state trip and not having emergency cash is something I will...
  8. Emergency Stuff in Your Truck? What Do You Carry For Emergencies?

    May want to look at an F-150.
  9. Where's My Georgia Fam?

    My trip was probably 799 miles. Learned a long time ago, when dealing with car dealers, just tell them it is a cash deal, that way they will not Hasell you to finance with them or have to provide credit info...they also tend to forget any last minute add on charges since the check is already...
  10. Where's My Georgia Fam?

    Yes, they picked me up at the airport, and it was a pleasant 698 mile mini-vacation ride home. Tried to buy another one from them yesterday...but their rumors of a Hybrid AWD was wrong. Chapman was a total decent experience... hope to buy from them again....still at least $1,700 less than any...
  11. Would you buy an extended warranty? Maintenance contract?

    i'LL ADMIT it is tempting....had a minor display screen problem, that ended up being under warranty....cable came unplugged under the dash. Dealer Service advisor informed me that anything not under warranty would have a $183 charge just to raise the hood and plug in their diagnostic...
  12. Where's My Georgia Fam?

    On principle, I would not buy from a dealer trying to force something like paint protection or an $800 SIBL (like Sandy Springs Ford did). My dealer Chapman even allowed me to do my own tag and title registration that took 15 minutes but they would have charge $250+.
  13. What’s new: changes for 2023 Maverick

    Those that ordered the XLT in 2022 got a bargain and I do not begrudge Ford in any way for making up some profit margins.
  14. What’s new: changes for 2023 Maverick

    I have it and I it includes camera images notifying you when you get out of the left and right painted markers with a display notice and tone...I would never buy another car without CP360; I think it is part of the rear backup alerts when have saved me a dozen times in the Maverick. I also will...
  15. What’s new: changes for 2023 Maverick

    After having a flat tire, I wish I had not added the full size spair. Getting the full size tire out front under the truck and back under...is way more than a hassel. The full size tire is still not the same size as the 4 tires that come with the truck so you have to change out the spare...
  16. Truck tent

    Math does not work for a Maverick 4.5' bed...only small children could lay down and sleep in a Maverick version.
  17. Truck tent

    Have 4 high end tents....most have minor leaks, this one comes with a rain cover and a spring loaded device that keeps the top from being flat....if it looks like rain i put the rain-fly on...so far zero leaking. If I was in a heavy rain storm my dog would no doubt want me to stay in a Holiday...
  18. Truck tent

    It is real simple, the back part of the tent next to the vehicle is just one big flap, no windows. I just fold this flap over the top of the bed on top of my tonneau cover...the tent flap just lies on top of the tonneau with the tail gate down...and is held on to the Maverick with two very...
  19. Dealer sold my custom ordered Maverick to someone else, they never called me when it arrived.

    Crappy Ford experience. Any car dealership is going to have a pretty "bullet-proof" sales contract, especially with terms of the sales agreement delivery is not their responsibility. This has happened to dozens of Maverick orders. I bought thru Chapman at Horsham, total over the internet...
