It's just odd and misleading because when you enter you're vehicle specs into their online user guide it seems to indicate that global open/ close is available. I mean if it's never supposed to have been enabled on the 17's and never enabled on earlier models, why would they ever say it was an option. Dumb. And no reason global open couldn't still be available at least if it's a safety concern with closing. I mean c'mon FORD.
You must of missed the part in the paperwork where it says:
"In the interest of continuous development, we reserve the right to change specifications, design or equipment at any time without notice or obligation."
And that's just one example. There are many more in all the fine print.
