Comment CMax Wooo (Score 1) 39

Maybe they can figure out why my C-Max makes a loud tone out the speakers when the engine is at exactly 2380 RPM. This car has an Active Noise Cancellation processor with several microphones and it is going berserk. Some Fusions get the same oscillation.

Apparently Ford decided it was cheaper to put in a DSP than to add sound insulation.

Tried them, hated them, set them aside. Could not even maintain focus across a single line of newspaper column. If simple fixed readers work, just use a 15 dollar pair from the drug store. I have found drug store glasses vary quite a bit in quality though so shop around.

That said, complain to the optometrist, they may be able to remake the lenses with a physically larger reading area. They might not charge you for it if you are truly dissatisfied with what you got.
