It's actually caused by the mic issues in the Microsoft Sync system. That "air tunnel" that people hear when you talk to them is to blame for the inability for Siri to understand you. Don't believe me? Try using Siri over Sync at low speeds (less than 30 km/h) and note the difference from driving at 60 or 90 km/h. The root cause is a shotty factory install of the Sync mic in the roof of your car. Crap engineering. If you take to your dealership, they will tell you Ford is aware of this issue but there is currently no fix for it. They agreed to call me when a fix is available.
