Any other questions that I can answer to help with your decision? I want to see you in a Focus.

Thanks for the response - I gather there is no particular logic to not having this feature. It says something about how Ford views its customers when they deploy tons of technology to enable them to verbally call up a play list but prohibit them from accessing really useful information the car has on board. This is supposed to be a "driver's car", right?

If I can get over this, and the MFT/Sync and 6 speed transmission issues, and the unavailability of Sirius on a non-MFT SEL, I could be a buyer. That is a bit to get over, though.
