2008 Ford Fusion Features

Features
The road tests we consulted found plenty of cutting-edge features in the Fusion's cabin, nearly all of them useful -- but there was some disagreement on the utility of the SYNC entertainment system.

Edmunds and TheAutoChannel list the 2008 Ford Fusion's features, like cruise control, power windows/mirrors/locks, and an auxiliary jack for MP3 players. A navigation system is available for the new model year, as is Ford's SYNC system. SYNC uses USB connections and Bluetooth to control the Fusion's navigation system (when ordered) and its audio system, as well as controlling phone calls through its software.

It shows promise, but as in our three experiences with the system in this Ford, Cars.com had difficulty getting it to work properly. "For me, the system was more a pain than anything else. Try as I might, I couldn't get my iPod to start playing songs when I got back into the car unless I pressed a button on the steering wheel, waited for Sync's audio chime and said 'USB.'"

The iPhone generation will be happy with the 2008 Ford Fusion, but the SYNC system is unproven.
