The MyFord Touch got beat up again in the media, this time by Car and Driver. It’s May print edition gave the Ford Focus SEL good marks but the MyFord Touch system was panned.
“MyFord Touch, Ford’s new technology suite, stinks. One juror called it ‘a killer,’” said the magazine. “It is slow to respond and demands a tremendous amount of attention. It’s as though someone forgot that this system was intended to go in a vehicle…” Ouch!
Back in January, Consumer Reports also found the MyFord Touch system to be too complex.
Ford also got some good news recently. It topped General Motors in monthly sales for the first time in a dozen years. Ford sales for March surged 43 percent on sales of over 142,000 cars and trucks. GM saw a smaller 11.5 percent gain to 141,951 vehicles. Some industry watchers say Ford may keep its lead for the near future.
