I'm a german import buyer (VW, MB ) We decided to look for inexpensive, but large/safe SUV type. I hate the car buying torture sessions, but I love VW and am always comfortable with and like their dealers, Toureg is fantastic, (esp. the Diesel!) but too expensive for us now. Saw EDGE and surprised at its style, price and mileage claims!Went to Pompano Ford, 12 miles away instead of local dealer 2 miles away after trying local a few times. Too "corporate-franchise" in style - owned by a Corp. that owns dealers of almost every auto brand, domestic/foreign-and who claimed model/color we wanted was unavailable in order to sell their inventory and not have to pay dealer exchange/transfer costs, not make a "drive it right now" sale and risk our leaving. I was going to give up on ford, but looked for the model we wanted on the internet, found the right one at Pompano and at a better price. Very patient and helpful with my wife, a first-time car buyer(no prev.credit) and secured a lease! Both times there it was late and everyone tired but stayed, patient and helpful even when it looked like sale might not be possible. Makes you want to buy another from them. I've never been a "ford guy" but their cars seem to compete w/ imports in style and build quality, I thought that for simple/practical and quality it would have to be an F150 but afraid it would be 12mpg! Dealer claimed Edge is really 20/27. Spent a long time with it (again patient salesman) and told him he he gets financing approved we will buy it, but telling him I wanted a written deal that I could bring it back if he lied and it was 12MPG. So we got it. Very happy. Next day I noticed it wasnt clean enough(we picked it up in the dark) Dealer took it in to clean again, gave us a voucher for free first service and said we can bring it into their car wash whenever we want! I feel good about buying US, because Ford has woken up and designed a great SUV, (their previous ownership of Range Rover shows!) and this dealer deserves it. Drive an Edge, the new Explorer, drive a Focus instead of an Accord/ Camry and go to a small dealer, there's a difference. If you live in "gold coast" Florida, Boca to Lauderdale, etc. go to Pompano Ford/Lincoln. Nice guys.
