The fine folks at Ford have been nice enough to loan us a car again for this summer...this time we have the all new Ford Focus. The new Focus is decked out with a ton of technology that we'll be learning about over the next few months but right off the bat the MyFord Touch is pretty impressive: streaming audio, turn by turn directions, in car diagnostics and much more all built right in. We're looking forward to driving the Focus all summer and learning about all it's features. Thanks again to Ford for sponsoring the show this week!
