MyFord Touch getting second update, extended warranty

By Jeffrey N. Ross
Posted Nov 28th 2012 9:21PM

There is no doubt that Ford has had its hands full fielding complaints with its MyFord Touch and MyLincoln Touch systems these days, but looking to keep its customers happy, Ford is once again upgrading its infotainment systems and extending the warranties. Despite having just sent out updates for its systems back in March, Automotive News says that customers are still complaining about the speed and ease of use.

Vehicles with MyFord Touch will now get a five-year, unlimited-mile warranty, while the MyLincoln Touch will have a six-year, unlimited-mile warranty. Previously, the systems were covered under basic warranties (three-year, 36,000-mile for Ford and four-year, 60,000-miles for Lincoln).

What is being referred to as "version 3.5" for the MyFord Touch and MyLincoln Touch systems will be mailed out (or downloaded) next month for owners of cars without navigation and in January for cars with nav. Owners of hybrids, plug-ins and electric vehicles will get the update sometime in the first quarter of next year.

The update is said to improve voice recognition and navigation functions.

Nice to see them updating it. BUT I think the biggest complaint was the lack of buttons. I bet CR will still slam it.

BMW has their iDrive working pretty well now, I think Ford needs to look at something like that.

The people that want buttons must buy a car without MyFordTouch system. And they must move quick, because the buttons will desapear soon from all the dahboards of the all new cars in the world.... Think in Iphone or Android phones.... if you want a phone with buttons, you must buy an old one....
