Car reviews - Ford - T-Series - TS50 sedan
20 May 2002
TS50 presents its occupants with a range of controls. The leather Momo steering wheel, which incorporates the tactile cruise control buttons but not audio functions, is manually adjustable for both height and reach. Of course, the indicator and high-beam stalk is on the right, at the end of which is the cruise on/off switch, while controls for the variable intermittent wipers are located on the left-hand stalk. There is no internal headlight beam adjustment but instrument illumination adjustment is offered. Power window controls, including a lock function and auto-down for the driver only, are located slightly awkwardly on the driver's door armrest, just below the power mirrors controls. There is no fog light switch, the extra illumination instead coming on automatically when high beam is activated. Trip computer functions are viewed via an LCD display panel in the climate control housing. There are also dash-mounted buttons to unlock the fuel flap and boot, plus internal door lock and power aerial over-ride buttons.
