I have blogged extensively about some of the dangerous “bugs” affecting vehicle computer systems and other dangers of today’s highly computerized vehicles. A recent engadget.com article says that another new “infotainment” system, Ford’s second-generation SYNC system, has some major glitches.

According to the article, the system frequently restarts itself when it encounters a problem with one of its applications. The problem with this is that the system takes several minutes to reboot, rendering the system useless until the reboot is complete, which can be very inconvenient when relying on GPS to navigate.

The system can be permanently fixed by taking your vehicle to a Ford dealership for a software reinstall or re-initialization.
