We were very pleased with the responsiveness of the iPod interface. But the call quality is a little weak; we sounded like we were inside a tin can while talking. I just sold a c5 corvette to buy this car.
The Ford Thunderbird is a good example. The voice-command system let us dial contacts by name through the standard Bluetooth phone system, and proved very accurate, if slow, in recognizing street address inputs for the navigation system. A newly modified front fascia chin spoiler improves aerodynamics and is accent painted for a more aggressive look. That sounds all well and good, but once your in the sport shift mode, you must either shift into neutral or go to the highest gear to get out of it.
