Five-Point Inspection: Ford MyKey

Five-Point Inspection: Ford MyKey

Get Gas Soon, Stupid!

Australian police recently warned people not to blindly follow the Apple iPhone’s maps application. Why the plea? Several drivers followed directions from the program and needed to be rescued after straying too far from a filling station.

Make no mistake, this isn’t an indictment of Ford’s navigation system. But that anecdote underscores how important refueling on time can be.

While the system isn’t smart enough to anticipate drivers too stupid to stop themselves from driving irrevocably into the desert, it will warn your teen sooner than normal about a low gas tank.

  • Total garbage. Makes me reluctant to purchase a Ford. Do your job parents. Parents who opt for this are failures.

    Tom, tom, tom… It sounds to me like you’re not a parent. And if you are, you’re probably not a very good one.

    Parents will want this because they can’t be around for every weekend jaunt in the family car that their teenage son or daughter will take.

    Those little hormone bombs make emotional decisions that are often irrational. What you’re saying is tantamount to suggesting that seat belts should still be optional. It’s like saying “do your job, drivers.” You can’t always avoid a crash, and in the same way, you can’t always be there when your (admittedly) air-headed 17-year-old girl is driving to school in the morning, thinking more about singing along to whatever eardrum rupturing hopeless highschool nonsense garbage than the road in front of her. Trust me. I know.

    So when you write meaningless, ridiculous, asinine things like that, please understand it serves to do little more than paint you in a humiliating light.
