Bob Basa, who is a tried-and-true Ford man, drives anywhere from 500 to 600 miles on a normal workday. He’s an environmental specialist and has been traveling the Texas oil fields for the past 12 years. He’s generally on the road from 10 to 12 hours a day. “I go to some pretty desolate, far-off places,” Bob says. “Sometimes I don’t see another soul all day long.”
But when OnStar FMV(1) came out, it piqued his interest — and his wife’s, too. “We saw the commercials about it on TV and I read about it on Facebook,” he says. “My wife is the one who made me decide to get it. I drive a 2005 Ford F-250 with 120,000 miles on it, and she said it would give her peace of mind knowing I had it on my truck. I have to admit, the FMV mirror is a pretty handy thing to have, and it is a comforting feeling knowing that OnStar is always there.”
Bob has had his FMV mirror about six months now. His verdict: “I love it.” In fact, it’s been such a hit that Bob’s wife — who drives a 2007 Ford Expedition — wants to get one, too.
