Driving a Ford Fiesta: How I select my favorite radio station …

I’m a happy Honda City owner. Bought it last year. I’ve been hearing news about new cars especially about the 2011 Hyundai Accent which everybody seems to love. I’ve been listening to podcasts in the USA talking about Ford’s Sync (renamed and upgraded to the MyTouch system) technology which really turns your car into a new digital ecosystem. I sent Anika Salceda-Wycoco (congratulations on newly married life!) a text asking if she has any more information about this. Nothing on My Touch yet but the Sync technology is alive in the Ford Fiesta.

I recently bought a car. If I let this go in the next 5 to 10 years this will be a ripe time to buy into the new technologies that turn your car into a real computer. The current My Touch system from Ford allows iTunes tagging, HD radio, built in WiFi, several LED screens, RSS feeds, Internet browsing and much more. If all things remain constant, Ford is definitely top of the list.

I’d like to know: does anyone own a Ford Fiesta? How is it as a car? How’s the after sales service? Is it competitive with the current offerings? I was only able to drive it for a few days but for me this wasn’t enough to form a full opinion about the car because the geeky features blew me away. 🙂
