After 3 years the finance on my Mazda 3 has come to an end and it’s time to keep it or sell it. I was always going to do the letter but it was whether I upgraded to the latest model or move on. After much thought, I’m moving on.
The version of SYNC that comes with UK Focus models is quite an early release, modified for the UK market. A number of releases in the US have occurred since, including the ability to update the firmware yourself via USB. Sadly, we can’t do that and are reliant on it being done via dealers (not that there have been any releases).
Yes, I’ve just bought a new car – the 2013 model of the Ford Focus Titanium X. It has a 1.0 litre Ecoboost engine which is remarkably good for it’s small, 3 cylinder capacity. A lawnmower it is not!
And the thing about the Titanium X is that it’s bristling with gadgets – it has the optionally appearance pack too which includes keyless entry. Anyway, I’ve come across a number of things that have required head-scratching and a lot of Googling so I thought I’d document them here.
