Microsoft Sync:

The Good, the Bad & the Ugly

By Kristen Aaron


Microsoft Sync

This is the Ford Taurus X; one of the many models in the Ford line-up that offer the new Sync powered by Microsoft. The Sync is basically an entertainment system that lets people stay connected while they’re behind the wheel.


Sync Usage Diagram

It sounds great right? Not so much; trying to use the thing is hard when you’re sitting still, so imagine the frustration people would have while driving. The Ford Taurus by itself is a very nice SUV, 5-star rating on impacts on each side, 6 standard airbags, Advance Trac Electronic Stability Control System, and so much more.
