Destiny Baker3 years ago

A Reuters news release states that the Center of Defensive Driving has proposed a class action lawsuit against the Ford Motor Company claiming it neglected to fix its MyFord Touch systems resulting in safety hazards to drivers.

  • The MyFord Touch system also includes MyLincoln Touch and MyMercury Touch.
  • System was sold on 68 percent of 2012 models and 80 percent of 2013 models.

Issues With MyFord Touch System

“In reality, the system is fundamentally flawed, failing to reliably provide functionality, amounting to an inconvenience at best, and a serious safety issue at worst.” – Plaintiffs’ lawyer, Steve Berman (as published by Reuters).

  • Customer complaints include: freezing, system malfunctions, screen blackouts, and failure to connect to mobile devices.
  • Significant risks arise when malfunctions divert driver attention or when the system fails to contact 911 during emergencies.
