What is Fordpass and what does it do?

FordPass is a Ford of Canada service for Ford owners to have access to exclusive deals, content, fuel and oil levels, vehicle status and more.

Ford owners with a smartphone who want to take advantage of remote features and enjoy “mobile offices” with an app that’s always on hand that is always providing up to date vehicle data and a reliable connected service Ford Motor Company has created an excellent option for eligible vehicles.

What does it do? For starters, users can check what type of fuel they need for their car and where they might find it nearby; get directions or traffic updates; set up roadside assistance, and schedule appointments at MyFord (Ford dealership) (standard message and data rates apply).

Additionally, there are features like remote start – which lets drivers warm up the car before exiting the house in winter weather- and vehicle location tracking so you know where your car is if you’re meeting someone or just curious about its location.

Finally, Fordpass lets you know how much gas is in the tank and if you’re driving efficiently to maximize your fuel economy using a personalized dashboard that provides insight into up-to-the-minute Ford vehicle information for safe travel.

FordPass will also help keep track of routine maintenance for optimal car performance including:

  • Monitoring oil changes so that it never gets too low or runs dry while driving. This can cause serious mechanical damage if left unattended over time and the ability to see your vehicle health in the palm of your hand is comforting!
  • Tracking tire pressure for Ford vehicles to make sure that they are maintained and inflated at optimal levels (this can help save money on gas over time as well).
  • Remote start is a necessity in the cold weather here in Canada but one of the coolest features with Fordpass is the ability to setup schedules so you don’t have to worry about forgetting to start your vehicle most mornings when it’s cold outside!
  • Keeping track of all maintenance services for Ford vehicles with a simple tap. FordPass will be able to keep up with oil changes, tire rotations, brake checkups and more!
  • Find your vehicle remotely. With GPS monitoring you can get vehicle health alerts, or worse case scenario find your vehicle in case it gets stolen by sending.

Drawbacks of Fordpass

Fordpass gives you access to features like account management, roadside assistance, remote locking and unlocking of your car, location tracking with enhanced navigation. There are also some drawbacks to using Fordpass that you’ll want to be aware of before getting started with the service.

While not necessarily a big disadvantage, you can’t use Fordpass to purchase or shop for your new Ford model, it will provide a link directly to the Ford Canada website where you can shop through all available makes and models, we’d love to see this capability built right into the app one day.

The service isn’t perfect and sometimes can be down due to service issues or upgrades being done to the platform.

If you’re concerned with data or privacy issues Ford does have access to information in the app but all data is kept secure (as long as your own account doesn’t get compromised on your behalf)
