Re: Chosing the Charge Port Location
Just want to reiterate that having a charge indicator on the dash is the ideal location. Ford really needs to rethink having the indicator be at the charge port. Yes you can have it setup to send reminders if there is a problem, but it is very reassuring to be able to just look at the car from any angle and know that all is well, especially since with a BEV if it is not charging you have a serious problem.
The dash mount has saved me twice already, when I thought it was plugged in, and it was not. And just this past weekend I was opportunity charging, and it was an outside plug and it was acting funky, but eventually it worked, but I was concerned that it might kick out again. From where I was seated I could easily glance over and see the green light was on, and know every was ok.
The beauty of the dash mount is being able to check the status from 360 degrees.
The complaints will come loud and often if this is not addressed on the Focus.
