Yeah, but at the same time it wasn't a pushed out update that broke something that working properly before this.

That’s true. MFT was broken from the get-go and stayed that way for almost 18 months.

Some would argue it was never really fixed

Hell, I dont even have MFT and Ive had issues, the biggest one being it randomly resets when I start the car so it has to re-index all my music and voice commands dont work like they should.

I had MFT in my 2013 Fusion. They came out with version 3.something in spring 2013 and it was rock solid until I traded it in yesterday. The only problems the last few years has been bad APIMs - the software was and still is stable.

Meh mine has been wonky at times...but normally clears up when I restart the car.

 

I'm looking forward to Sync 3 which seems bullet proof in my wife's Escape.
