This Ford Explorer Sport came with the My Sync system, which is a touch screen that controls entertainment, climate, navigation and phones. Daniel was doing the driving on this trip, and he kept saying that he felt like he was in a plane cockpit rather than a car. The system looks daunting at first, but we quickly had our devices hooked up, had the address of our destination in the GPS and were off on our adventure!
The car drove well and handled nicely. It has too many cool features to list, but ones I particularly liked were the gas gauge that tells you how many miles you have until the tank is empty, the power port for plugging in my iPod for charging while it plays, and the dual climate control and separate rear climate control. Daniel especially liked the hill descent feature and thought it was really helpful when we were descending on windy mountain roads. And the kids enjoyed sitting in the back and looking out the window. They didn't want to give the car back when our trip was over!

All in all, we thought this was a fun, easy, safe car to drive and we had a great time with it.
