Customization would be the best option. I would really like to see a list of characteristics that the consumer could select from and then ford would install software with the characteristics that you wanted. But I don't see that ever happening although it should. I would be happy just to get V3.0 re-installed. The constant creep feature to satisfy the hydro auto folks, seems to me like it would greatly decrease the life of the clutch pack with all that slipping to keep moving forward. When I drove a manual 30 years ago I would never sit in stop and go traffic in first gear and just modulate the clutch, due to wear on the throw out bearing and the clutch. But that is what I have now?
