Well I've 500 miles on my 18 FFH and I really really like this car.  I drive 40 miles each way to work and I've been getting 45-47 MPG on the way there and 37-39 on the way home.  Mostly downhill vs uphill is the reason for the difference.  Very comfortable and rides great...SYNC works as described.  My minor gripes: I have the halogen headlights in the projector lenses and they are quite frankly unacceptable.  I will remedy this soon.  I occasionally hear what sounds like plastic or rubber rubbing together when I go over uneven pavement.  It's sporadic and not a huge deal, but I do like silence. 


It's an SE with the tech package.  The dealer sold it for $50 above invoice and Ford has 0% and a $2k rebate right now...so it was $24k and change.  I wasn't even considering a hybrid, but with the rebate it came to the same price as a fairly loaded SE with ecoboost.  I'm glad I made the choice I did.  It's like playing a video game with all the fuel and power screens.  I enjoy seeing how long I can keep in it EV mode.  Looking forward to warmer temps.

Congratulations and welcome! This car is pretty great! A few things I’ve learned over my ownership:
-Try to get threw the owners manual, it’s important to know things like: HVB disconnect, jump points, dead battery entry/start. I guarantee you’ll find something you didn’t know.
-Fiddle with your display modes, like turning off instant fuel economy on the Empower screen, it will show you more threshold.
-The stock headlights are kind of tragic, I took off my bumper (should be ez access for ur car) and changed them with some “Lighting Dark” H11 LED. They work perf
-Warmer months = AC = lower mpg.. Set auto climate control, dont just put on max AC all the time.
