Apparently wildfires can disrupt electric power. It can be inconvenient to have your electric garage door opener inoperable when you want to drive your car to escape fiery death.
Politicians "solved" this problem by outlawing the sale of any garage door opener without a battery.
Meaning, the reason you still use keys is that you do not have a battery backup?
I do have a battery, but sometimes wonder what happens if the opener fails somehow. It hasn't happened in the past 20 years, but there can be motor failures, broken springs, etc. I go without keys and figure I'll...
I agree that Ford should do that.
The Chevy Bolt has had a rear-view mirror/camera for years, and it was one of my favorite features of that car. I don't understand why manufacturers are not doing this for many more models; I think it would sell cars.
Tesla would say "All of the time", not just "much of the time". That is, the driver is always responsible, and the system is never responsible. I imagine Ford would agree.

I thought it was fair to them, too. They can either keep Select and get the smaller discount, or upgrade to keep the technology package and get a bigger discount. Either way, they're treated fairly. All the delayed deliveries are no doubt disappointing, but it seems like Ford is trying here...
That may well be.
But I am old enough to remember when major American auto manufacturers were actually capable of servicing the cars they sold, and their customer service was not a nightmare.
I wonder whether we will ever see such marvels again.
