MyFord Touch getting second update, extended warranty
Posted Dec 7th 2012 6:30PM
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-kilometre warranty, while the MyLincoln Touch will have a six-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty. Previously, the systems were covered under basic warranties (three-year, 36,000-mile (60,000 km) for Ford and four-year, 60,000-miles (96,000 km) 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.
