After almost a year with the Edge we went back to a loaded 2007 Town & Country. Gas mileage is the same and the TC is 2X the size inside. The Edge is a great looking SUV but the interior build materials are simply horrible, 1 large flat hard plastic piece after another. And Ford was so cheap they painted many of the plastic interior pieces. Any time you say touch the glove box with a kids school bag or a shoe it puts a nice scratch on it. Our 18" rims were allready replaced after only 1 winter, they were all pitted out. Gas mileage is OK at 18-19 in town and 22-24 HWY, but the huge TC van gets the same. We simply couldn't live with the cheap KIA interior.
The Edge is a great looking SUV. We got it because of the exterior design.
Interior build quality! The brakes are not the best and at 4300 pounds this thing needs to go on at least a 500 pound diet. Make 1st gear more responsive. Engine way to noisy for a $30000+ SUV. But back to the lego interior, whats up with that, simply horrible. Put the new Flex interior in the Edge
