There's a mystery clunk in the front end that occurs on almost all Edges the dealer tests - no fix for it yet. Vehicle rattles much more than I expected - on cracked and seamy pavement, over RR tracks - mostly the doors moving around. World's most illegible instruments. Ford should have used the Fusion's instrument faces. Love the power train; it's more manipulable than you'd think. Love the seats. Love the quiet; 1400 rpm at 62 mph! Over 13 years I've found my small-town Ford dealer to be excellent; so good I drive there (about 30 miles) for oil changes! Mine is front-wheel drive. With the right snow tires (Yokohamas)it's more than adequate, saves close to $2000 and improves mileage.
Looks. Comfort. Seats. Ergonomics. Quietness at speed.
Instruments that are readable, especially at dusk. Manual control of transmission. AC vents beside dashboard control pod that can be closed fully.
