Teenagers who have just gotten their driving license are often excited to say the least, gaining yet another inch of freedom in their battle with parents. Ford aims to keep such enthusiasm under a leash with the new MyKey technology which will come as a standard feature in the 2010 Focus Coupe as well as the remaining lineup in due time. MyKey is able to do the following :-
- Allow parents to limit a vehicle’s top speed to 80 mph
- Limit the stereo’s volume up to 44% of its max
- Set a sustaining chime if the seatbelts aren’t being used
Teens reading this will probably bug their parents to get anything other than a Ford, although I don’t think they’ll be too successful with such lobbying.
