    A faster, simpler, better myford touch is here - MFT Update

    for those of you that have the new update, can someone confirm if the screen or mode your in when you shut the vehicle off comes back up upon start up? In other words, if your in the entertainment mode when the engine is shut off, is that what's on the display when you turn the engine back on?

    ease of routine maintenance?

    Oil changes are very easy. The filter is on the front side of the engine, plug is in the rear. If you have a trailer tow package, you will have to remove the "cooling tube" that runs along the oil pan to access the drain plug via 4 thumb screws (also very easy). All other fluids appear easily...

    CNET Review!

    Brian is on crack. This is the quietest vehicle I've ever driven in no matter the speed. You can barely ever hear the engine. The throttle response is no different than any other SUV but get's better MPG's in the end. If you want faster throttle response, get a mustang.

    Fuel Mileage?

    Scottfmc, take a look at my "oil change" post and see the picture of my undercarriage. Since you don't have the tow package, I assume you do not have the air tube shown in my picture.....or do you? Can you take a peek under your Ex?

    did 1st oil change-observations/questions

    1800 miles. I meant to do it earlier but couldn't find the time until yesterday. I keep my vehicles for 6-8 years and tend to "over maintain" them. I still change all my vehicles every 3000 miles too (when not using synthetic).
