MY 2014 FORD C_MAX Upda
It annoys me to no end that Ford insists on Bundling and Packaging the ordering of a Sirius/XM Satellite Radio with a bunch of Garbage that many don`t need or want. I understand, listing dozens of separate stand along options would slow Production and make Special Ordering a nightmare, however, in the case of wanting to upgrade to Sirius/XM Satellite Radio, why must you also get SYNC and MFT, "My Ford Touch". I personally would prefer paying (extra) to avoid those 2 nuisances! If you don`t desire "Voice Activation" Blue Tooth Cell Connectivity, MP3 Plug in Music Files, iPhone or MicroSoft Pandora and getting constant Software Updates for MFT 3.5, what`s next? Even Hyundai and Kia offer as Standard Equipment Sirius/XM Satellite Radio with a free complimentary Subscription, even on their cheapest Accent and Rio, respectively! How much additional cost to include the Satellite Software into the Standard Radio? I am not talking about upgrading to a Sony, Bose, or Infinity Sound Systems and Speakers! Most of Ford`s Canadian Spec Vehicles included Sirius/XM as Standard Equipment in the past including my 2011 Ford Fiesta SE Hatchback. So, your choice is, purchase option package #202 on a 2013/2014 C-MAX and have Sync and MFT rammed down your throat along with the Sirius/XM radio or purchase an after market Sirius/XM Module and clip it on your HVAC Vents. That should look lovely, eh?
