It's crazy, isn't it? That's one thing that I don't really like because it's not like it's open source. So if in the year 2050 I'm trying to restore an "old" Fusion that keeps starting on fire, I'm going to have one hell of a time before I realize it's one of the first few cars of the model year that didn't have the recall applied, etc.

Even with this Focus, I know there's an updated BCM, but I can't really get it applied unless I complain about something.

EDIT: But then again, if it is a recall it'd probably get taken care of...
