  1. I bought the 4 with FWD. No regrets.

    2019 Due ?

    2019 build and price tool is up. New copper paint looks cool.

    Waze and Sync3

    Another strange thing that happened, don’t know if it’s connected. Drove car last night without my phone plugged in. Wasn’t using sync 3 navigation, but the system was not able to accurately pinpoint my location. Rebooting the system (press and hold audio power and fast forward buttons until system restarts) fixed the problem.

    Waze and Sync3

    Thanks, finally got it working, but followed the above directions after my trip. Drove from Ohio to Wisconsin using Waze in my MKZ. It routed us creatively through Chicago and saved our bacon in Janesville WI where there had been a big accident. The app crashed once, had to restart. Adding alerts (police, etc.) didn’t work. The system kept telling me I was creating too many alerts when in reality I only pushed the button once. It was as if I had pressed it six times because I had to push close on the alert details screen six times to get it to close. I just gave up. I’m not an experienced Waze user but it did a great job for me. I’ve had great success with Sync 3 XM traffic and Apple CarPlay maps though too.

    Waze and Sync3

    Waze is allegedly integrated. I have Version 3 and can see Waze as an available app. Yet when I click it endlessly spools Waiting for Device. The Waze app on my phone is locked for my safety when plugged into usb. What do I do?

  7. I’ve got version 3 and waze but haven’t looked to see if this feature is enabled on my car. I’m very impressed with XM traffic rerouting so I don’t even have CarPlay turned on as I like the sync 3 interface.
  8. Why wouldn’t it be called the Zephyr?

  10. I read autopsies.com and thetruthaboutcars.com daily, and have read this on both sites.
  11. Production of the Fusion is moving to China and Ford’s CEO has said that Chinese Fusions will not be imported into the US. Thus implying that the US won’t be getting any Fusions. Sure sedan sales are down (at least until gas prices skyrocket again), but I can’t believe the Fusion wasn’t successful enough to warrant continued availability in the US. I had a 2014 and thought it was a great car. What does this mean for our Zephyr?

    Didn't get the car I thought I wanted...

    I’m at about 10,000 miles and really loving the car. It is really the smooth quiet car I wanted. Don’t regret not getting the 6 cylinder especially since there is no whininess in the 2.0. The XM traffic enabled GPS is incredible though the nav interface can be clumsy. It does an awesome job with traffic rerouting and doesn’t call attention to itself it just picks the best route. Sync 3 version 3.0 is still buggy but I deal with it.
  13. When I leased my car I tested the sound of the base stereo vs. the Revel 14 on two dealer stock cars, using Radiohead’s newest CD. “Burn the Witch” isn’t a bass heavy track but rattled the driver door exactly as described in this thread on the Revel system, so I didn’t go with that vehicle. Clearly there isn’t enough bracing within the doors to prevent the excess vibration, something we can only hope to be fixed when we get the new Zephyr.

    SYNC 3 Version 3.0 (North America)

    sync 3 interface is great but version 3 still buggy. Plugged in my iPhone, tried to play music, wouldn’t work. Unplugged and replugged, suddenly the Pandora app option appeared. Ok. Tried playing that. Wouldn’t work. Now I could play songs on my plugged in iphone. Pushing skip on the steering wheel doesn’t skip to next song. It skips 4 songs. And would someone tell me how to save my current location on the nav as a favorite?

    Revel - "Onstage" or "Audience"?

    I have the base stereo and it’s awful. Especially listening to Sirius. Wish I had at least the Revel 14 system.
