Ford has created a new type of car key that will allow parents of teens to add all types of nanny-like features to a new car. Each key can get its own program to limit top speed, add extra seat belt warnings and limit the volume of the car stereo.
Called MyKey, the system will be standard on the 2010 Ford Focus and will later be available on many Ford, Lincoln and Mercury models. We’re guessing the Focus is first because it’s the most affordable car in Ford’s lineup and thus probably the most likely one to be given to teens.
Check out a full list of features offered on MyKey below.
