Ratings and Reviews
A great addition to any new ford!
This app is brilliant! It’s a great way to quickly track your cars location, lock your car, check tyre pressures, oil and fuel levels! I’ve also found it useful when I’m in areas I’m visiting to find cheap parking, petrol stations and places to visit! A well deserved 4 stars! What stopped me from making it 5 star is I wish the app would notify you your cars current lock status. When I lock it, it doesn’t indicate after that point if your car is in fact still locked. It would be great to simply look and tell you your car is locked or unlocked in the app. It shows you once you press the button it’s locked but then goes away. I think this is a small but very important detail as you could be pressing the button all day long checking. And maybe an additional button to open the boot would be cool but not essential to the rating. If some workaround is done to the lock idea I’ll definitely update to 5 star. But great no doubt!

Sometimes it Works, but all too often it doesn’t!
I’ve owned a brand new MK3 Ford Kuga ST Line X for just over a month now. In general I’ve found the vehicle’s Infotainment and Driver Assistance systems reasonably easy to get to grips with. And in the most part, after a bit of practice, they have been fairly intuitive to use and to adjust various settings. However the same can’t by said about the performance of the FordPass app. As per the title of this critique; the app operates quite intermittently, especially when recording My Journeys, and the Fuel Report just refuses to function at all.
The app regularly freezes and has had to be deleted and reinstalled. Also very regularly I have had to dismiss the app and then start it up again as the screen often freezes. A common error message is: ‘Something is not quite right. Please try again later or contact a Guide for help’.
I’m using an iPhone 11; maybe the app doesn’t like iPhones, who knows, but it’s certainly not fit for purpose. Shame really when it does work - although this seems to be in short bouts - it provides some useful feedback on the Kuga’s status and performance. Obviously the FordPass app needs a lot more development!!!
I quite like the features available within the app, it does a lot of the stuff the vehicles dash does but away from the vehicle, it also marks where your vehicle is parked. It allows you to unlock and lock your vehicle with your phone (the quirk) all of this is protected via pin (and facial recognition on my phone), comes in handy if you leave your keys in the house and pop out to your car with your phone. Although it sometimes does take a few mins to connect to unlock the vehicle, and I have had a couple of issues with it hence the 4* rating. At one point it’s was refusing to locate my car this required me to reset it on my car not the end of the world, a few weeks later it crashed every time I opened the app requiring me to remove the app and re-download it, annoying but not the end of the world yet again.
