Why is everyone so pessimistic about Ford OTA update rollouts? Most of the time the distance between announcement and updates is measured in weeks and months. Very rare for something to take longer than that.I think you could be right - late 24 at the earliest and if there's an OTA recall for something (God forbid) it could get shelved even longer. They've been building BC 1.3 cars for months(?) now and nothing has come OTA.
LOL they have been putting electronic frunk releases into cars for years. Stilll no OTA for the GFM, BCM, and center screen button (mush less the FordPass App button).I think you could be right - late 24 at the earliest and if there's an OTA recall for something (God forbid) it could get shelved even longer.

The big difference between the 2010 & 2015 cars that you purchased vs the mach-e is that the mach-e was built and sold before it was even finished. Ford has used OTA updates over the past few years as a crutch. In 2021, after they stared rolling off of the assembly line, the car was nowhere near ready to be in the hands of the general public.This new computer age of cars is interesting. When I bought my 2010 Prius and my husband's 2015 Highlander, that was it. We didn't expect significant improvements to the car. I am glad we are moving into more regular and expected software updates for car now, but i suspect that there is a degree of how much updating and improving of older model years should be done vs focusing on just making newer model years better. I do hope the older GTs have that 5 second limit fixed if it's possible to fix, but wouldn't bank on it being done.
This sounds like you agree with what I said. The button that shall not be named was rolled out to almost everyone within a couple months and the job 1 people getting it way later? That’s the “very rare” example i mentioned.I think most of us job 1 folks would tend to disagree about that which shall not be named.
They said the same software is coming to GT and GTPE owners, It will probably be a 10-second rule but I will take it.I like the looks. The wheels look cool to me.
But even bigger, Redline Review stated that the front motor is upgraded to get rid of the "5-second limit." That's a big change.
