I like think I have an imaginary passenger brake peddle. The other day, my husband was following the car in front of us too closely. I tried to use my brake to no avail. Next he heard me scream, "You're the reason I have I.B.S. now slow down!"

I bought a brand new Mazda 3. I actually researched before going to the dealership. What I like the most (and what I didnt see on your list) was:

-radio controls on the steering wheel
-the automatic and manual transmission (you shift it over depending on how you want to drive). I've only seen it on the BMW but most people don't know that mazda has this feature.

Hi, My other option would be GM's onstar system if I owned a GM. It's to bad that Ford doesn't have this system on there suv vehicles.

You forgot to add the "air cooled" seats! Great for those hot months! We use the heated and air cooled seats frequently.
Ford has 911...where if your in an accident and can not ans. their call, they will automatically call 911 for you. Obviously, must have your phone connected by bluetooth.
Sirus has added area traffic updates and area instant weather maps with radar..at least it is new in the 2010 compared to our older 2008

Heated seats are wonderful when it gets chilly

I love having a key-less entry system too.

I use the voice activated commands a lot too.

My favorite thing that I have added is an aftermarket iPod adapter. I can control the song selection from my steering column or my navigation screen

Ford also added "Jukebox"...no need for a cd changer or mp3 player. Holds over 3000 songs! And very quick and easy to download.
