Are you a current or recent car shopper who bought an EV and then installed solar – or who had solar already, making the decision to go electric easier?
Are you a recent EV buyer (past 3 months) as a result of manufacturer incentives and dealer discounts on these vehicles, including year-end deals? Were you convinced to buy an EV after finding a good end-of-year deal, or due to uncertainty around which EVs will no longer qualify for full/partial EV tax credits in 2024?

Convertible top not engaging

I bought a 2000 Mustang convertible from my daughter. When I put the top up, the metal things do not go into the holes like they should. Is there a fix for this?

    What do you mean---the pins don't line up properly. Is the top crooked or cocked when it goes up--out of alignment?

    If that's what you mean, then check your hydraulic fluid level. Remove a drive motor filler plug. Fluid should be level with bottom of plug hole. If needed, refill with Mercon Multi-purpose ATF (XT-2-QDX). If it's low and you refill it, operate the system a few times to get the air out of it.
