Has anyone played with Automatic Level Control yet? The feature is suppose to adjust audio volume and sound quality according to the vehicle speed. There is 3 levels for it.

If its like the 6's level one is about right. works pretty nice I think. needs a coupel more chices in there, 2 can be a little much sometime 1 isnt enough, but all in all it saves a bunch of reaches for the volume ;) Its not supposed to do anything to sound quality that I'm aware of.
Dare I say the lvel control in our Focus actually has a little better fine tuning...then again the car is a little noisier too soooo...

I can't really tell if it's on or not....it's a weird feeling. It's LIKE it's louder sometimes, but you can't really tell because it is so subtle.

So I end up asking the people in the car with me....."hey, is the stereo louder, or is it just me?" :p

Mine is on level 3, I think-it's nice cause when I get on the freeway, it changes the volume so that I can still hear it without manually having to adjust the volume. It's weird b/c I don't even notice it anymore and I get into other people's cars and expect em to have climate control and ALC.

The salesman and I played with the ALC and I think its a nice feature. Although I kept forgetting the radio controls are on the steering wheel also.

Yeah, but once you get used to it you hardly ever reach for the real radio anymore except to pop a different cd in.
