Test Driving a Ford Focus with Sync Technology

carSomeone from the Social Media Group contacted me last week and asked if Toronto Mike would test drive a Ford Focus and write about the experience. I've got some road trips coming up, and I thought it might be a good idea to drive a new Ford Focus instead of my 200,000km clunker. To sweeten the pot, they started telling me about Sync.

I'm not really a gear head, so I had to Google Sync. It's a voice-activated mobile phone and digital music system for your car. I have a phone! I have a shiny new iPod! I'll drive a Ford Focus for a week!

It's official. I'll be test driving a new Ford Focus with Sync technology for ten days in August. The Ford people are going to give me a personalized Sync demo in Oakville so I can surround myself in hands-free digital tunes when I hit the road.

I'll update you next month after my Sync demo.

Glad to hear you are psyched. I can't wait to hear all about your trip. Good thing you have some time to create a few road trip play lists :)

Dude, that is seriously awesome. Did you get contacted because of your blog?

They must know that you are a wise bloguero.

Toronto Mike

Yep, they contacted me because of this blog.

I'm a solid B-List web celebrity.

I guess they're targeting the younger crowd or so they think. I thought, myself, they (Ford) should be promoting the Canadian made Edge or Flex knowing from reading your Blog your a family man. "sigh" Ford marketing at it again, still getting it wrong! Focus is a very nice car, I have one. Good on gas, fun to drive 145 thousand and no worries, no problems and I drive hard.
