What do you all think about the new gauges? How many of you give a crap about the oil pressure and voltage gauges?
Also, you probably noticed that I put the LCD screen/track apps under pros and cons, here's why. First, if MyFordTouch is any indication, it won't work. Second, I'm a bit concerned with how much data these apps will gather and that Ford may use this information to continue swinging their warranty ban hammer. Think about it, you come in with engine, transmission, or suspension issues and the dealership shows that you have activated the track apps and been driving the car for racing. BAM, warranty claim DENIED. I'm not saying it will happen, but look no further than the Track Key for the Boss 302 for some foreshadowing. It was advertised as a feature of the car, but if you use it you lose a substantial chunk of your warranty coverage.
Don't get me wrong, I think the track apps are very cool and I would definitely use them if I got a 2013. I'm just concerned what the overall repercussions are. I'm OK with knowing that my lolwarranty is useless, but I doubt that the 90% of Mustang owners that don't read the enthusiast forums would be as informed about these potential issues.
