I’m noticing that, a lot Solterra/bZ4X owners have a buyer’s remorse… majority are “you should have know before you bought it”… like “It doesn’t fast charge like xyz automaker.” or “Why it doesn’t get 300 miles? xyz model can get 3xx miles!” Like literally, you should have know these info BEFORE you bought it. I’m reading their forum & fb gp just to bang my head. It’s worse than teenagers here complaining that 86 doesn’t have 400hp.

I got a good deal on slides and barrels for a couple pistols I am piecing together and ordered some gifts for friends.

I also had a book show up that I forgot I preordered. Have reading material for this work week out of town.

My robovac often loses track of where its charging station is and keeps cleaning until it suddenly realizes it is completely out of energy and stops in the middle of the floor. I find that very relatable.

We have three (one on each floor of the house, and one in the basement) and they all seem to have suicidal tendencies.

The upstairs one on four of five days gets "stuck on a cliff" (its message) as it manages to hang a wheel over the stairs.

The one on the main floor always manages to either get stuck humping a piece of furniture, or gets itself caught under the edge of something.

The basement one, which is a different brand (the other two are Roombas) and is 15 years older than our newer ones works almost flawlessly except when it catches my desk chair and pushes it around the room (the chair is gaming chair with inline skate wheels so it rolls with very little pressure)

This one is also a Roomba which I bought after my last vac threw itself down a flight of stairs one too many times. I don't even remember what brand that was. Overall it isn't bad, but for some reason it completely forgets where its charging station is more often than not. I can tell its done when I hear "Please charge Roomba" echo from downstairs.

Oh, that and it doesn't so much bump into objects as much as it rams into them with the fury of a teenager throwing a temper tantrum.

So, this site seems to be in decline. I come just to RT BS. Rare I have a car problem. My twin runs super great.

I hope it picks back up. I do miss @Tcoat, and a few others.

Hope you all have a good holiday season.

Ho.

Ho.

One way to look at it is that all of you, the veteran users, have paved the way for new/current owners or avid researchers, to not have to remake threads and find what is wrong with their car.

I don’t remember the last time that I made a thread, because now anything that I think it’s wrong I just type “(Describe issue +Ft86 Forum)” and 9/10 times I find what I need. In most if those results, either humm, or you, you tcoat have been involved in the answers.
