    The Me and My EV From Hell
    If you’re considering trying to do the “Right Thing” by buying a Me and My EV, here are a few things for you to consider
    It’s been months as this web page is prepared. More than one month ago I bought an “nEV” as they’re called – a neighborhood Electric Vehicle – to further my interests in conserving the environment. As the owner of the World’s only Electric Passenger Vessel of her class it made little sense to burn up fossil fuels while going between boat and cafe and home. I investigated all of them and elected to pay more for a Ford Think because it was being sold through a local dealer in Newport – Me and My EV – and because it felt like a better car.

    To date I have been able to drive the vehicle for four days. The rest of the time the vehicle has been in the service department of Ken Grody Ford. Why? Beats the hell out of me. I built an electric propulsion system for a 66 long ton vessel in three days that has operated faultlessly for three and one-half years at this writing (knock wood). Yet, Ford can’t seem to build a little car that can go for a few days without breaking down.

    Me and My EV’s reaction: Tough, in my opinion. Notwithstanding the fact that the vehicle was sold and delivered to me with a non-functioning odometer and speedometer making mileage on delivery uncertain at 137 (I’m letting the DMV deal with that issue). Would I buy from them again: No. Not even if they had the world’s greatest EV. Customer Care was dismal – nonexistent in my opinion. Service was terrible and continues along that path, too. (I have yet to receive delivery of the windows I paid for a month ago, not that I have a car to put them on.)
