Hello from north east Oklahoma 2013 hybrid

Recommended Posts

Hello, my name is Kevin and I just brought home my 2013 titanium energi hybrid that I still can't believe I own! I'm new here obviously but not new to forums so look forward to meeting the regulars here and gaining and hopefully sharing knowledge. Going from a 01 mustang to this was like going from the winnabego in space balls to the enterprise so many buttons! Very excited to learn what they all do so far I got the radio to work and my phone connected lol

Welcome! I am a new 2014 Fusion owner and still learning how to use all the features.

These are nice cars but one caveat, the factory 12V battery is known to be iffy and can cause weird things to happen with the electronics at the end of its life.

I suggest checking the date code on the 12V battery and if it is 3 or more years old, get a new one and enjoy a trouble free start with your new car.:)

Thanks for the tip! I'll check it tomorrow before I head to work, been reading the manual while the battery charges and peeking out my window to make sure it's still there lol wish I could find what options came with the car from factory but so far all the window sticker sites I found through searching the forum have turned up without it.

Re: Window Sticker:  I agree! I was able to get a real window sticker about 4 months ago online, some dealer allowed access to the FordDirect website

which can produce a copy of the window sticker.  Now none of them work.  I bet the dealer can provide one.  But us used buyers should have access to this since the salesman usually doesn't know all of the car features he is selling!  I found out mine has a lane keeping system to warn you when you wander too much in the lane while I was driving. (What's that?!)  The printed manual shows all possible features, (* if available) but how are we to know if it is installed?

Modern cars are so complicated that they need to do a better job about telling us what is installed. 

They have enough computers in the cars now, they just haven't been convinced to tell us. Your new used car is a puzzle to solve. 😉

Hey that's a great idea I didn't think about going to a dealership (duh) for a window sticker I'll call my local one tomorrow. Thanks for the idea! Yeah while driving to work which was only the second time I got to actually mess around with buttons I found out it has heated seats! That was a awesome discovery for my 3rd point of contact lol
