      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. I was back at Hartwell Ford in Banbury with my husband's car this week. I told the staff about the "eye-pud" situation. No one there had ever tried the "external device -- iPod" command combination so couldn't comment. Janet
  2. Your Fiesta

    Thanks, Tato...and I love the mods to your Fiesta! It's gorgeous!!! Janet
  3. Your Fiesta

    I've posted this photo elsewhere...but it's my favorite photo, so far, of my new 2012 Fiesta Titanium: So far, I love this car! It has a whopping 155 miles on the odometer after a week! ;-) Janet
  4. Really enjoying these responses, everybody! I'll dig into the manual and see if I can find anything about vocal recognition programming! Janet
  5. Paul, I noticed the same thing over the weekend. Most of the voice commands could be understood over road noise, but I had to repeat "external device" several time before "she" understood me. Janet
  6. Just curious if anybody else has noticed a quirk that my husband and I have noticed with our Fiestas. Each of us got 2012 Fiesta Titaniums within a month of each other. He got his first; I loved his car so much that I traded in my 9-year-old Audi S3 a year before I'd planned, and I got a Fiesta Titanium as well. We've been learning the voice commands for the Sony system. Now, I should add that I'm American by birth, while my husband is English. I couldn't get my car's system to recognize it when I said "iPod". I tried saying it fast, slow, as EYE-Pod, as eye-POD, and as EYEPOD. Nothing. So I figured it was my accent. When my husband got home from work, I asked him to try saying "IPod" in my car. The system couldn't understand HIM either, so it wasn't an accent issue. After a lot of fiddling, he discovered that we have to pronounce the term as more like "eye-pud" to get the system to positively respond. We got into his Fiesta, and the situation was exactly the same...so it wasn't just a quirk of my car! So I'm just curious if anybody else has noticed this. It causes great amusement with my passengers when I say "eye-pud" to my car, and the female voice responds with "eye-pod"! Janet
  7. Show Us Your Rear...

    Everybody, This will be my first attempt at posting a photo. I can't resist this thread, as I think the rear view is the best angle on my new Fiesta...in Dark Micastone: Janet
  8. Hello From Oxfordshire

    Everybody, I took some photos of my new Fiesta yesterday. I'll go through the instructions for posting photos here and see what I can do about getting a few of them up online. Janet
  9. Hello Anthony! I'm new to the forum, too. Our situation is similar to yours. My husband traded his 2002 Focus Zetec for a new Fiesta Titanium. My trade was a little more severe...I traded a 2003 Audi S3 for a new Fiesta Titanium. It was a tough decision, as I've been an Audi girl over the last 14 years! It's just the two of us -- no kids. And I've recently retired. So we thought it was time for cutting our automobile running costs, especially as petrol is so expensive in the UK (and my Audi needed high-octane unleaded too!). So I'll be happy to compare notes with you. Janet
  10. Hello From Oxfordshire

    Thanks to all who have welcomed me! Janet
  11. Hello to everybody here! I have just joined the Ford Owners Club, as I'm the proud owner of a new 2012 Fiesta Titanium (1.6 petrol, manual, 5-door, color: Dark Micastone). This is my first Ford in a long time...I owned a Ford Capri V-6 back in 1973. In the US, where I was living at the time, the Capri was marketed and sold via Lincoln-Mercury dealerships rather than as a Ford. I was delighted to find, from my car's VIN, that my "Lola" was also made in Germany. I had a great experience with my old Capri and have owned three terrific Audis in a row before switching back to Ford. I'm sure I'll be asking a few questions from time to time, and I'll post some photos of my Fiesta when I get the chance! Janet
  12. Welcome to the Ford forums JMLN :)
