Considering bailing on order.

Ordered a Lariat back in April. It was delivered to the dealer this week. After reading this forum, I discovered that I will not qualify for the 2022 tax credit because the delivery date is after Jan 1,2023. I will not qualify for the 2023 because the truck is over 80k.

I did get the price protection, and the dealer did not add a market adjustment. But the rebate was part of my financial decision to buy this very expensive truck.

Also I keep reading on this forum that the software sucks, which is a major bummer being that EV's are all about the software. I have a Tesla, so I understand how important well designed software is.
And, I have been trying for months to get Sunrun to give me an estimate on installing an inverter and charger. Dozens of calls and emails. Still no estimate.
Plus there will be dozens of new EV options this year and next. And in 2024 there will be an instant rebate at the dealership.

I will loose my $1000 dollar deposit. I don't want to be penny wise and dollar foolish. I don't have to have an EV this year. I can wait until the next Ford update or check out other Ev options in the future.

Not sure what you mean by the "software sucks" but I will say the app and phone as a key works perfectly. Regarding the infotainment system, the most recent update actually has fixed a majority of my gripes with it, simplified heated / cooled seat functionality and camera access. Im fumbling with the screen much less. Android auto works like a dream. I used to own a Tesla and the software was indeed wonderful... wish they would dress up the gauge screen a little better now though... they look very plain and generic compared even to the Silverado EV.
