I traded in my 2008 Ford Edge Limited AWD for a 2011 with the same trim and options. I was so impressed with the quality, performance and reliability of my 2008 that I was drawn back to the Ford Edge when it was time for a new vehicle. So far it has been nothing but regret! My 2011 has much more road noise, loud clunking in right front suspension, worse gas mileage, less power (despite 20 hp increase over 2008), back-up camera that only works 50% of the time and touch screen that goes blank for no apparent reason. I could go on but limited to only 700 characters here. I only have 1500 miles on this vehicle and already have laundry list for service department when I have time to take in.
Keyless entry and start, BLISS, interior/exterior design and looks.
Hazard button needs to be relocated. It turns on every time you put your hand near the touch screen. All the tech stuff is what drew me to the 2011 but has turned out to be its biggest drawback from my experience so far. Lots of bugs to iron out IMO.
