It really depends on how quickly your mind adapts to small changes. My father, who's 67 and very tech adverse, hates it. But everyone else in my family likes it.Lol I think this is the first time I've heard this. Don't have the truck yet so I can't give an opinion but my gut feeling is that I won't hate it nor love it
Your software is fully updated and your brake service mode still does not work? Seems like a basic function.Same as I don't like the electronic parking brake because I can't change my own rear brake pads since the stupid thing won't go into brake service mode and FORD has no fix other than an SSM advising servicers to use FDRS to force it.
That's unfortunate. Just did brakes on my much older, much cheaper vehicle and brake service mode was a ten-second process to have the solenoid fully retract. Does your lane centering and adaptive cruise control function flawlessly? One of the main reasons I want to replace that vehicle with a Maverick LARIAT.Yep. Very annoying.
I also had a 79 E150 with an overdrive 4 speed on the floor. It was located against the side of my captains chair but all the way back so 2nd gear was behind my seatbelt mount! Not alot of people were willing to even try to drive drive it. Its such a quirky van that I paid $20 a month since 2006 for storage! Just moved it to my sisters house last year. One day I may do something with its drivetrain.My late best friend had a 71 F-150 short bed with a 390 and a granny 4 speed with a shift lever that would go round and round He was the only one that could drive it.
We fixed it by replacing the granny with a good old C6. A couple of weeks later some dirty bastard stole it. Should have left that rotary shift granny in it
I would totally buy a EV manual just for the fun of it. Even if it wasnt at all needed.At gun point I wouldn't take a manual. I enjoyed driving them in my youth, but as you age remembering brake and gas is good enough, all that other motion, even if deeply embedded muscle memory, is a waste. Let the tech do it.
That is one thing I never had an issue with in the previous Escape Hybrid or the Maverick. Lane centering works just fine.That's unfortunate. Just did brakes on my much older, much cheaper vehicle and brake service mode was a ten-second process to have the solenoid fully retract.

not only that but it's not actually "shifting". there is a thread that explains how the transmission works around here somewhere......With electronic shift, the computer won't actually make the change until it can safely do so without breaking anything.
I usually have that hand on the steering wheel, with the other one. Most of the roads around this hilly area are quite crooked & steep. Lotsa curves!
I'll see your 4 on the column and raise you one. For a time IH had a 5 on the column.Over the years I have driven cars with all sorts of shifter set ups. Early 60's Chrysler's products with push buttons on the dash along with a dash mounted park lever were among the strangest I encountered.
Four speed manual column shifter on a 1962 Mercedes was a bit different. I bet a lot people would have a problem driving that today.
