Hey everyone. I got my ecosport back in July when I was living in Maui. I live in the East Bay area now. Only a couple things been driving me crazy so if anyone knows how to help I'm all ears.

First being the sluggishness. I have the SE 4WD model and it sure doesn't feel like it has 166hp. I've seen programmers out there but I don't know if there are any tunes for the Naturally Aspirated ones.

Second being the sync system not letting me run Raspberry Pi. My 2015 Fusion had RCA cables so I could have a little video game console for people to play while I was stopped.

And the final one being the Sim card location for the mobile WiFi. I don't want this ATT crap in my car. Especially when I work for Verizon and can get way better service for half the cost.

Ford may not have placed the SIM card in an easily accessible location, so removing a faceplate may be involved in locating it. There have already been mentions that the powertrain is being updated for 2019 to address the underwhelming performance.

Haha changing the power train for the next model year doesn't help out the current situation haha. I wish it had that same 2.4 Ecoboost that my fusion had. I got the same mileage out of a heavier more powerful car. Next car is gonna be the bronco raptor whenever that happens. I got time with this loan.

Ford should bring over the new Kuga as it seems to be a more agile vehicle that can get better mileage just due to the overall design.
