SYNC Steering Wheel Functions work SOMETIMES

It's so weird. I have an iPhone 5. From the start, my phone would connect the second I turned my car on and start playing music. The steering wheel controls would advance to the next song on request. Then my iPhone broke. I got a new iPhone 5 and ever since I'm having problems. I made the iPhone my primary phone. It will play music. Then I go on streaks where the steering wheel functions work (Volume always works) but for days or weeks the songs will advance. Then something happens and it stops. I'm 99.9999999999% that it's not something wrong with the buttons. It's something with the way it connects or something. Any advice? Thanks!

Note... My old iPhone would sound garbly for about 3 seconds when it first connected. That's never happned with the new one. Not sure if it's connecting in a different way, or what's up but thought I'd mention that difference.

Hey kilerb -

It seems after updating to iOS 7, many iPhone users are experiencing the same thing. I have reported it to my support for investigation.
