Ford will pay 17 million to settle MyFord Touchrelated lawsuit

first_imgOwners and lessees with this older system are in for at least $45 if they submit a claim. Ford Infotainment is a tricky part of in-car technology even today. As automakers gradually dipped into more tech-laden systems, some got it right, and some did not.After numerous complaints, Ford has settled a class-action lawsuit surrounding its MyFord Touch infotainment system. Law firm Hagens Berman said in a release on Tuesday that the automaker will pay $17 million, and both owners and lessees are eligible for compensation.Specifically, the litigation surrounds the system equipped in 2011-2013 Ford and Lincoln vehicles. The infotainment system was notorious for being unresponsive, crashing and freezing while driving. Other complaints surrounded inaccurate GPS information and the total inability to connect with a smartphone.Compensation amounts will be based on how often an owner or lessee needed to service their vehicle for an infotainment system repair. If that figure is three times or more, they will receive up to $400. Those that serviced the system twice will receive $250, and one appointment for a MyFord Touch fix will award an individual $100. Those who didn’t have any repairs done to the system but were, as the law firm said, “dissatisfied” with MyFord Touch will receive $45 by filing a claim.To help affected folks, a dedicated website is now online to submit a claim and to search through repair claims. For those who may not remember how many times they brought their vehicle in for a repair, the website will locate the records. Furthermore, any owners who made repairs outside the warranty period can apply for reimbursement for any out-of-pocket costs.California, Massachusetts, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Virginia and Washington residents are the only individuals able to file a claim and people in those states must have purchased or leased a Ford or Lincoln from an authorized dealer before Aug. 9, 2013. Ford will automatically cut a check for anyone who doesn’t submit a claim and was the original vehicle owner, in amounts ranging from $20 to $55.As for Ford’s most-recent stab at infotainment, we’re happy to report Sync 3 is pretty darn good. 4 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better Checking the tech in the 2020 Ford Explorer 3:16 29 Photos 2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC350e review: Premium plug-in hybrid feels like an efficiency half-step Share your voice Comments More From Roadshow 2020 Hyundai Palisade review: Posh enough to make Genesis jealous Now playing: Watch this: Ford Tags Ford Auto Tech Car Industry Sync 3 gives Ford cars fast navigation, Android and iPhone love (pictures)last_img read more

Report Says Houston Can Learn From Floodplain Buyout Programs In Other Cities

first_img X 00:00 /00:58 Listen To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Marissa CummingsA neighborhood street near the Addicks and Barker Reservoirs is seen inundated with floodwaters after Hurricane HarveyA new report says government buyouts of flood-prone homes could move faster if more local money was available.Harris County’s buyout program is the biggest in the country, the report from Rice University notes, but it relies mostly on slow-moving federal money. The report looked at how officials managed to speed up the process in Charlotte (North Carolina) in part by created new local fees. “We’re able to buy properties immediately after a flood, versus if we relied on federal funding, usually that doesn’t happen until years afterwards,” said Dave Canaan, Water & Land Resources Director for ​Mecklenburg County, home to Charlotte.Still, experts cautioned that the success of buyout programs shouldn’t be judged solely on speed.Christof Spieler, with the Greater Houston Flood Mitigation Consortium, said officials have to make sure buyouts don’t create new housing problems.“If the government is buying out your home for the appraised value of that home, if you’re living in an old home that may not be in good condition, you may not be able to afford a place to live for that amount of money,” he said.The Rice report notes that Harris County officials have committed to more local funding for buyouts since Harvey, but it cautions that those commitments might only be temporary.
