How do you have the day time running lights enabled? Where did you get your donut tire?

A lot to read here one the DRLs


And here on the donut spare

Thanks corncobs. I cannot believe the level of detail that the moderators and others have put into those two subjects. Thank you again!

Tomorrow is the first anniversary of the purchase of my 2013 FFH, so I thought I'd update this thread with my first year experience.


The good:


After 26,876.6 miles on the odometer, the dash displays Avg MPG of 51.7. Yes, we all know this is a stretch, but my actual average after 50 fill-ups recorded in Fuelly is 48.4 MPG. I'm thrilled!

From mid-June through Labor Day, I recorded nearly 54 MPG over ten fill-ups.


Then there was this one week of commuting in August and a 59 MPG 245 mile round trip.


$1,848.77 total fuel costs for the year works out to just 7 cents per mile.


Comfortable interior and ride, heated seats, leather, audio, and navigation.


Added premium window tint and a shark fin antenna.


Oh, and the $775 check from Ford! :happy feet:


The not-so-good:


Dealer had car for a week to repair problems with climate control, keyless entry keypad, global windows up/down, and remote start.


A couple pet peeves with MFT - Don't show me a button to "Install Apps" when there are none. And, display song/artist info in right dash screen when streaming Bluetooth stereo - it can't be that difficult.


Some occasional, hard-to-locate interior buzzes, usually emanating from the center console area or one of the B pillar areas. They come and go. I'll locate and fix them one day when they get on my nerves too much.


Bottom line - the good far outweighs the not-so-good. I've owned a lot of cars, and this FFH is easily my favorite. So much so, that we bought a second one for my wife!

Great feedback MD13!


I got the call that my FFH was delivered at my Dealership on Tuesday this week.  Sadly I am stuck in Oklahoma for work until Friday and won't even be able to get to the dealer until Saturday to finish things up and hopefully drive her home.  My Father went in to get his oil changed in one of their Ford's so he sent me some pictures.


I COMPLETELY did not even think about the rear bumper cover not looking the same as the FF Titanium Non-Hybrid. I loved the look of the dual exhaust.  Should have known that the FFH would only have one tail pipe (if any at all, haha).  The Rims are not the snazzy ones as discussed on the page before this, which included the screenshots. But I think I'll get over these minor details. ;)

Attached are pics from my Dad's phone. I will have to ask my dealer to install the front bumper licence plate bracket. Yes I know it will destroy the look but I like to put my own flag up on the bow. ;)

Think of it this way, Cant see the bumper or wheels from the drivers seat! :)  Looks like the HyTi has different wheels now too, they dont look anything like what I have on mine.
