HAs anyone seen Canadian pricing? I had the foresight to get the COmfort/Tech package on my Select AWD (as opposed to the appearance package which does not include the prep equipement).

If it really is 750$ or CAD, I'm actually glad about my choice.
That is what I'm expecting it would be hopefully. Wrote to Ford Canada about it but has usual they are MIA and my dealer too. So It just using of my patience right now.

And of course the idiot driving from the sunroof was a "Florida man" 😂
Hey, easy on us Floridians, the whole Floriduh thing is a bit tired and stereotypical. I'm sure idiots are equally spread among all states. I'm military and have spent plenty of years in other states and countries and have experienced them all over! Now I'll be quiet and enjoy my no state income tax and wonderful weather.

I'm a native Floridian. You are right. But the articles and TV news reports are hilarious nonetheless! And not once have I thought, "this can't be real" for the ones I've seen, so far.

Sorry about the Florida weather photo. Could not resist. Seriously, Florida has some great people (including my brother--on most days). There does seem to be a tendency to spread the word whenever someone from Florida does something odd. Partly jealousy (says the guy who lives through Wisconsin winters)?

Interesting. Any guesses on how one will be able to defeat an eye monitoring system? I don't want to, but they seem reasonably robust to me...?
I was wondering if there has been any testing done on any potential medical consequences of the IR lights scanning our eyes for extended amounts of time. Think about how much time we spend in these cars (daily commutes and on long road trips). Could there be any damage to our eyes? Just curious.

Considering the sun is a much more powerful and ubiquitous infrared light source, I think the dash's IR LEDs will be OK.

Well here's my front yard so we're not immune to hurricanes. Growing up in Michigan for 20 years, had my share of no power from ice pulling down the electrical lines and tornadoes as well. Still spend plenty of time back home I. Michigan.

Yes, the picture shows what a hurricane can do. My wife and I bought a second home in Florida three years ago thinking we'd have the best of two worlds; Aimee in Sycamore Illinois and Laura in Palm City Florida. It didn't take too long for us to realize we made a huge mistake in buying the Florida home; we were BOTH very unhappy down there! We took a beating selling the house (actually got more for the house than we paid but we had to sell or give away all of the things one buys for a house - furniture, 5-beds, 2-4k HDR TV's, kitchen appliances and accessories, etc.). Even with the [email protected](%@! up state Illinois is (corrupt politicians, numerous Governors spending time in jail, state income taxes for everyone under 65 years old (BTW seniors pay NO state income tax JUST LIKE Florida so that's a wash), winter snow storms, summer heat waves (a lot like Florida - we both hate hot weather) we wanted to return to our home in Frankfort (Spring and ESPECIALLY Fall are our favorite seasons in Illinois)! We're very happy again and go to Florida to see Laura and her family once or twice a year. Actually, my wife, Aimee and her three children drove down and are spending Christmas with Laura and her family in Palm City. I'm up here in Illinois because I had outpatient surgery and wanted to be close to my doctors just in case.
