I've asked several people how I sound @ 70mph on the highway, and all have said that there is some noise, but it's not bad at all.

Call your own voice mail from the car one day. All Voice mails have the ability to record your greeting and you can play it back to hear it before it's saved.. Drive at about 70 and see if you hear any unreasonable amount of road noise in the background.

So they had you riding with them and they called someone back at the dealership and the person that answered claimed it sounded good?

So what are they offering you then to fix your car? That would be my next question to them. I'd be like, Okay great!. So make MY Car sound like that.

lol

I was not with the car when the test were done. This is while it was in the shop for 3 weeks trying to be repaired.

Noisy Mic too..

Sigh, I guess I join the masses with the noisy mike problem....
Its annoying, my F150 didn't sound like this, it was very quite and nobody could hardly tell I was using the MFT system.
Now, I can't drive above 15mph without someone saying get me off that speaker phone...

It is outgadious.... First the MFT problems with the system locking up, the sound going FULL BLAST... not able to even turn it off without stopping the car and getting out... They fixed that with the software upgrade, but now this Bluetooth issue is driving me insane, did I make a mistake getting this car?

Have the Titanium.

SIGH...

Yeah I wondered the same thing. The last few cars I bought were base models and then lived with the regret of not getting the higher end models with all the features I was drooling over such as BT, etc. So when I bought the focus I made sure to get all the bells and whistles and the one thing I was really looking fwd too, Handsfree is a huge disappointment.

Now my front end rattles too!. However that's another 25+ page thread already in progress.
