But I kept having visions of snazzy new technology failing as I used it. Like the cool door handles that power out when you touch them...what happens when that motor or sensor or circuit goes? Break a window? Replacement parts? ummm $550? more ??? who could I trust to work on them, certainly not me. -- SkepikI

My comment here is getting off topic, but....

Today I got a letter from Ford saying:

* New software for MyFord Touch.
* Extended warranty on the "Accessory Protocol Interface Module" which runs MyFord Touch.

This just reinforces my determination to sell my Edge before my extended warranty runs out. If I have a module blow (had one failure in 55k miles so far), it'll probably cost out the wazoo.... and sometimes a module failure is a big deal. It was a problem last time since I lost a lot of HVAC functionality as well as all screen function until it was replaced.

Cool stuff .... cool.... but you can't fix it yourself and it's expensive.
