Slow boat from

My coworker was able to find out that his headliner needed to be replaced because it was cut when some workers were crawling around in his back seat. The workers were crawling around in the back seat because the back seats needed to be replaced. The back seats needed to be replaced because the batteries needed to be replaced. The batteries needed to be replaced because they would not charge. He had to wait the extra time because they had to ship a new set of batteries (The FFE has two battery “packs”–one where the gas tank is on an ICE Focus and one in the hatchback area) from Korea where they are assembled.
This meant that my coworker had a pretty big decision to make: Should he take the car or not knowing that it has been ripped apart and re-assembled. How would it stand the test of time? Would he get a lemon? Would the car stop dead on the road? After much deliberation he decided to take delivery. After all it is a lease and will go back to Ford in 3 years anyway.
So after almost 6 contentions months he took delivery of his Blue Candy Ford Focus Electric. As of today neither of us have had any serious issues with the cars (mine with over 3000 miles on it, and his with over 2000 miles on it). Now our conversations involve our experiences driving an electric car and getting a Level 2 EVSE installed.
