Berge Ford of Mesa, 460 E. Auto Center Drive, one block south of the US 60 freeway and Mesa Drive, is holding some fun activities that involve the whole community we think you should know about! First off, congratulations to Wendi Jones of Mesa Community College! She is the winner of a 2008 newly redesigned Ford Focus as part of Ford Motor’s Your Ticket 2 Drive College Giveaway program.

Coupled with MTVu (MTV university) and the MTV Woodie awards, Ford motor went nationwide to attract college students from all over the country to enter in its free “” giveaway. To enter, any college student taking at least 6 credit hours from across the nation was eligible by simply logging on to sweepstakes. From over the 8,000 entries Ford received nationwide, 10 entries were chosen at random and flown to New York City to attend the MTV Woodie Awards held at St. John’s University. At the event each of the 10 semi-finalists got behind the wheel of a 2008 Ford Focus and called “snyc”. Sync is Ford’s brand new fully integrated voice-activated incar communication and entertainment system. Boy, that’s a mouthful! But what it does for you is genuinely impressive. With simple voice commands in your Ford you can, “Call and Text Message” hands-free while driving. Want to read or send a text message? Call Sync. Want to dial your friend and converse hands-free? Call Sync. Even caller ID, call waiting, and battery status can be utilized through Sync voice commands.

Sync voice integration in your new Ford also allows you to plug in your favorite IPOD or MP-3 player and request music, podcasts, or audio books. With Sync voice activation you can truly pay attention to your driving with “both hands” while still accessing your IPOD or cell phone. And this is just what Wendi Jones got to do when she sat behind the 2008 Ford Focus at St. John’s University in New York City recently as one of 10 semi-finalists in Fords Your Ticket 2 Drive Sweepstakes. As only the 7 th person in line, when Wendi sat behind the Focus and called Sync, she got the response she’d only dreamed of, “You Won!” And with that the 2008 Ford Focus was hers! On The Road will be there to take a picture of Wendi receiving her new Ford Focus when it arrives at the Berge Ford showroom and we’ll certainly pass on the great news to you. Again, congratulations Wendi!
