I just took delivery of my Lightning Lariat and the dealer knew nothing about the vehicle. Anyone know what this button next to the shifter does?!?
I certainly knew more about it than the dealer. I also had to educate them on the Charge station that comes with the ER. They thought the plug that comes in the Frunk was the Charge Station Pro. Contacted SunRun...they are looking into it. I left with no real answer on how and when I will get the Charge Station Pro.the OP brings up a good point, though - few dealers and their employees know much of ANYTHING about the LIGHTNING - we already know more than they do. I may have to show my own salesman about the truck.
Thanks for that information. Do you have the website you visited to order?I received an email from Ford Charging Canada on May 30 that my f 150 lightning is coming and if I want the station ahead of time then let them know and they will ship it at no cost. This way I can have it installed before the truck arrives. I placed the order and received an order number and said would ship it out and will notify me when it does ship. The order summery did in fact say $0.00 owing. Its June 8th and have not heard anything yet. From what I understand it does not ship with the truck.
I live in Canada so I will keep you all posted, hope to see it soon.
CHARGER UPDATE - Just talked to Ford, there is a delay. An email went to dealerships this morning with steps to take to get the chargers and it sounds like there is a small compensation for those like myself that have the truck and no charger.Thanks for that information. Do you have the website you visited to order?
Congratulations on your new Lightning @wapple! What have you liked/disliked about the truck so far? Do you have any other photos you can share?
So far it is a total love. The only thing I am trying to figure out is a clunking sounds coming from the front. i think it is the plastic cover over the charger storage in the Frunk. It is loose and has no rubber, so plastic on plastic. I hear it on acceleration after a hard stop and while turning.
Ford's online vehicle sales model couldn't come soon enough. The only real value a dealership provides is servicing our vehicles but even that wears off as we come across reputable independent shops.the OP brings up a good point, though - few dealers and their employees know much of ANYTHING about the LIGHTNING - we already know more than they do. I may have to show my own salesman about the truck.
