    Factory cruise switches installed, programmed, and working. It was my first time removing an airbag. Kind of a bit nerve wracking, and I know they are designed not to go off when people are working on them, but I wore a static strap due to all the static electricity from the dry air, plus safety glasses, when working with the airbag.

    Anyway, between now having cruise control plus most of the steering wheel buttons being relocated, it feels like a completely different vehicle, and I will probably have to get used to it again.

    Color me impressed!

    Just watched the video and meh is all I can say. She's not the most articulate person on the planet and doubt anything she said would make me want to buy the product...or not. Thanks for alerting me to it though. I do plan to give the Hyundai Kona EV a closer look as I do agree, it does look a lot better. Luckily, the Chevy dealer and the Hyundai guy is right across the street from us, couldn't be any closer. Do like that Chevy is throwing in the level 2 charger as an added bonus. Almost bought one back in August but never put a deposit down. Think I need to test the Kona first plus actually drive a Bolt to see if it'll work for us but I do think my driving style will be perfect for this kind of vehicle.

    impressive job Corvette. I'm not willing to go that far myself but glad it worked out!

    thought of you today. was at the mall with the wife, and they had a truck accessories store (weird to find it there, but not as weird as the store that just sold bunnies)

    anyway, I wandered through to see if they had any interesting cargo nets or strap set-ups, and saw that they had a drop in bedliner set (the main bed piece plus tailgate cover) on the floor, on sale. looked at the tag, and was shocked to see it was for a Maverick. I did not realize those were even out in the aftermarket, and odd to see it there.

    $150 and it could be yours! not sure how easy it is to install. I had one done in 1990 some memory is fuzzy but I think it is double sided tape on the bad and sides that holds it all in place. Tailgate might be screwed in place?

  • corvettecorvette United StatesMember Posts: 9,592
    The one we had in a Sonoma, the bedliner part literally "dropped in" below the rails and there were cutouts where the built-in hooks could poke through. I don't think there was any double sided tape holding it in. The tailgate piece screwed in through existing holes--I think you removed the bolts holding in the tailgate release handle and then screwed them back in with the bedliner between them and the bed.

    That sounds like a good price, it's about what I paid for the bed mat (which I still haven't installed the adhesive strips for).
  • stickguystickguy Member Posts: 47,405
    I think the guy that installed the one in my Nissan Hardbody put tape on the bed. that did go underneath the top lip (you could also get one that went over the top, I liked the cleaner look). But, the Maverick doesn't have a lip like that

    That is a good price for a bed liner. If I recall, the one I put in my Toyota pickup was $250 and that was in the 80s.

    I've yet to see a Kona EV yet here in South Florida. Would love to try one just to see how they drive though. And in time, I will try everything out. But, the new time frame will be pushed back another 8 or so months until the 2024 models are on the showroom floors. Will be able to stash away some more cash to add to my trade so I'll be able to finance less. Luckily, the Goodyear tires are wearing very evenly as the last thing I want to do is buy another set of tires. I do need blades for the front and rear wipers though. It's been longer than I thought since they were all replaced. Unfortunately, one has to go to VW or an indie VW/Audi store to get them, none in the after market. Got mine at the indie place right down the street who charged about the same price & they even installed them for me.

    the XL trim level on the Maverick is missing some common features, the most notable being cruise control. But some enterprising early owners discovered that you can but the few missing parts (mostly the buttons for the steering wheel) used on other trim levels, and install them on the XL. the rest is just programming to turn it on (all the electronics needed are already on the car). There is a tool (software) you can buy called ForScan that lets you program all kinds of stuff on Fords, including activating Cruise Control.

    a lot cheaper than upgrading to the XLT trim level which has CC standard!

    Cruise control used to be a vacuum pump and switches, linkages etc. Today with drive by wire it is all electronic and other than the switches adds nothing to the cost of the car.

    exactly. Ford saves their $1.99 per truck, but mostly upsells people to the XLT because they really want Cruise. There is some other stuff of course but I can't recall what real features there are other than alloy wheels instead of steelies (it does have different color seats and trim)

    I've never really cared for cruise control, and can probably count the number of times I've used it on the fingers of one hand. I do believe I'm in the minority here, but that's never bothered me.

    I use cruise control in school zones, it keeps me from speeding. Most local school zones have a speed limit of 25. I also enjoy cruise on longer trips as I tend to get a heavy foot and want to avoid a ticket and being fussed at by the wife “aren’t you driving a bit too fast?” Somehow, regardless of vehicle she has a sixth sense the when speed gets close to 80 and she chimes in. lol

    I’ve only used cruise (autopilot) on the Tesla and that is purely to keep me out of trouble.

  • stickguystickguy Member Posts: 47,405
    the biggest issue I always had with cruise was where I usually did highway driving. in the Philly-NYC-Albany corridor (jersey turnpike, NY thruway) there was generally too much traffic going varying speeds to ever be able to set it. could never go more than a minute or 2 before having to kick it off. so just was not worth the effort.

    occasionally the roads would be empty (like early on Christmas morning) and it was possible to set it and keep it on, just not often. So I just got used to not bothering.

    plus I worry about stuff and it was actually more stressful, because I would drive with my foot hovering above the brake pedal. And that is less comfortable than just having it on the gas!

    I will use it once in a while if my legs are stiff so I can stretch them out.

    Well, you can't really use cruise in traffic.

    It comes in handy when you are on relatively empty multi-lane limited-access highways.

    in light traffic that is OK. in heavy traffic like that it is a constant heavy brake and hard accelerate action which is not pleasant.

    The adaptive cruise in the Passat is pretty nice, especially while traveling. However in congested traffic, even though it brakes and accelerates as needed it does make me nervous and I find my foot ready to tap the brakes. A couple of times it got a bit confused when it detected a vehicle changing lanes and slammed on brakes without warning only to accelerate back up to speed.

    I’ve never really been a huge user of cruise. Like others have mentioned it seems that there is always too much traffic around and by the time it clears, I usually just say forget it. Intuitively, I know there’s another city to pass though in a relatively short time to the point its just not worth it.

    Plus I’ve been know to take a shortcut over the river and through the woods that takes us by a good hole in the wall BBQ, burger or Taco joint.

    I usually set it at 5 above the speed limit - if traffic is moving slower, I maintain pace; otherwise, I don't feel like I'll get a ticket for excessive speed.

    Friday I finally had a chance to drive a G42 M240i at my BMW dealer; it was a 2022 out of the BMW NA corporate fleet so it had xDrive. It's a really nice car; it feels bigger than my 2er from the drivers seat- primarily because the power dome bulge on the hood makes the look bigger than it seems. The only thing I really don't care fore is the digital IP, the E43/53 AMG cars have much better displays that are easier to read and have more configurations to choose from.
    Anyway, after I drove it the NCM(who was a salesperson when I worked there) told me he had two M240i cars inbound. One is a xDrive car fitted with literally every option while the other car is in Status 11 which means I can change every option- and can get it in RWD. I was offered either car at a tick over invoice. I put together an order- everything but HP Tire and cooling. My wife(bless her heart) suggested saving the $2,400 and put it toward a dedicated track car(likely a Spec E36) in a couple of years when I retire and the Clubman is sold.
    A friend of mine with contacts at NA is checking to see whether there's a secret order code that deletes the sunroof; that would seal the deal.

    @stickguy nailed it. I would note that the 2023 Maverick has standard cruise control on all trim levels--likely, it wasn't worth the assembly line bottlenecks associated with having different switches with no cruise on the XL trim level.

    Drove the Prius up to Cataract Falls in Indiana today since it hasn't been driven on a long trip in a while. It was fine, but I missed the better refinement of the Maverick. BTW, the eight speed automatic in the Maverick has been flawless.

    I also set the cc for 10 miles over the limit and have been fine. Now that season is finally here, the roads are a bit more crowded so using it less & less. At work, we start and end at our chase vehicle which is very close to our house. Then we normally drive up to Palm Beach International, PBI, where our boss is. There are many days where we go down to Ft. Lauderdale or Miami and back to PBI a few times a day. Or, we go the other direction to Vero Beach or Ft. Pierce, but we do a lot of driving most days. I don't mind the driving as many times, I'm sitting in the chase vehicle after dropping off a vehicle somewhere.
    Starting time is now at 8 am and that has been since we came back from our furlough in 2020. Before that, 7:30 am & occasionally 7:00 am would be our starting times. I sent a text to our boss last week suggesting we go back to an earlier starting time, but he said for the time being, it ain't happening. Told him since it gets darker earlier now, it made more sense to start a bit earlier but it fell on deaf ears it seems. Think it's a profoundly stupid idea but he's the boss...and I'm not, so we're done suggesting anything.

    if you are going to pull out you are off cruise anyway. Just not worth the hassle to me!

    Not necessarily. If you have the CC set at a higher limit, it will resume that speed when you pull out from behind the slowpoke.

    around here you will get run over doing that. If you are in the right lane already running cruise you are probably below the flow in the left lane. so if you are pulling out there you better be running the speed up quick!

    or you drive in sparse traffic so it doesn't matter.

    Pretty much the latter, around here and the times I’m on the road.
