  1. I've been lurking around this forum for a few months, but today I got my full-member card - 2018 XLT Wagon LWB 7-passenger Magnetic Metallic with roofrack & hitch. A little pricier than the Guard Green XL I ordered, but after 4 months' wait, Ford informed the dealer that they won't be building any more '18s even though I bought in February. GK
  2. Jacks

    I have access to quite a collection of bumper jacks as we've used them for dozens of tasks at the country place. They would be perfect for converting an FTC back bumper into a spoiler... GK
  3. Jacks

    I've got the same jack & I've yet to find a car it'll do that on. It won't even do a tire change for snow tires - I hate to think of a flat situation where you have to lift the flat sidewall as well as the suspension travel... Can you lift by the axle itself? GK
  4. In Quebec at least, it is illegal to leave the keys in the car. A friend locked her keys in the ignition, panicked, called 911. Cops came, wrote her a $182 ticket for leaving her keys in the car, & left. She found a taxi driver with a kit to get the car opened. My pickup has a cut key in the back deck but without the FOB, it only opens the door - will not start. I figure the only reason I'll need it is when I lock the key in the ignition anyway... GK
  5. The '19 has a manual 6-speed or an automatic 8-speed. Also offers a diesel option. I'm also a manual transmission fan, and a diesel fan, but I do not want a drive-train on its' first year of North American emissions standards. I'll jump on a 2021, however... GK
  6. Battery Jump Starter?

    Don't want to slime up a TPMS sensor but those cord plugs work well. If you live in colder climates, matches & candles would be a good addition in wintertime. Just don't put it on the dashboard or you'll crack the windshield. (Don't tell my boss I know this - now!) GK
  7. Fuel filler security

    He complained to the boss about my accusation, I told the boss about this exchange, the boss watched him & fired him within days...
  8. Fuel filler security

    I suspected someone was stealing gas a few years ago - put a locking gas cap on my pickup truck. About 4 months later, a colleague at work asked me about it. "SHHH! You, me & the guy stealing my gas are the only two people who know about that!" GK
  9. New to Forum - Hello!

    I also play music (would not consider myself a "musician") & am anxiously awaiting my FTC to answer that eternal question: "How many ukulele players fit in a Transit Connect Wagon?" GK
  10. Patience... Patience

    A buddy runs a rustproof shop - white & silver rust quicker than almost all other colours, probably because the sun doesn't warm it as much as other paints & the condensation doesn't dry out of the door panels. Hence white & silver being on my 'no fly' list... GK
  11. Patience... Patience

    In stock 300 km away was a fully-loaded silver Titanium. (Silver & white are a definite no-go for me.) Calgary area had exactly the XL equipment list I want - black. 6-8 weeks. meh. My dealer had a naked XL on order. "Oh, we can install everything you want except the frost-free windshield..." White, 6-seater, and I've met some mechanics at dealerships - thanks, I'll wait. GK
  12. Patience... Patience

    Three months in, & I phoned my salesman - still no news... GK
  13. Should I change transmission fluid

    Owners' manual for the '18 has recommended interval for auto transmission oil change at 240000 km - I don't even leave a manual trans oil that long! "Heavy service" interval is 96000 km - much more reasonable. GK
  14. Battery Jump Starter?

    Realise that these jumper packs are good when you leave your headlights on. However, when your car is 15 years old & a hard starter, and it's -25 degrees out, they can't do much for you... not like jumper cables off a running car. Unfortunately, modern computer control systems in cars means a split-second inattention with old-fashion jumpers can cause $1500 damage in a heartbeat. GK

    Also, good luck on the camper. I also camp in my Mazda B3000 and I'm gonna miss the 5-speed. I know the '19 FTC could tickle many of my fancies with 6-speed & turbodiesel, but I don't want a "first edition" on the North American market. GK
