We purchased a 2011 Ford Edge - for gas mileage we went from a 2007 Suburban (great but thirsty) to a 2009 Mariner (OK on gas but no go) to the Edge.
Did not realize Edge was so heavy, but appreciated how solid it was.
No issues whatsoever.
Bought low end FWD model.
No touch screen etc.
Cloth seats were warm in winter so seat heater no missed.
Little bit of hesitation on times at acceleration but really strong engine.
Brakes were solid and steering was also OK.
Climate control worked well.
30,000 miles and only routine oil changes.
Zero mechanical issues at all.
Did not tow with the car but don't think it would have been an issue.
Highly recommend the Ford Edge.
Very comfortable - roomy interior
Rear AC Vent
Very clear instrumentation
Everyone felt very secure in this car
Optional heavy duty floor mats great addition (not a joke - really very good)
Very good car
Radio a little bit tinny sounding
Rear visibility come have been better
Ford should put some type of protective on the seats and carpet - we sprayed a lot of scotchguard when we got the car - renewed it regularly - still ended up a with a few stains
Average Mileage computer wildly inaccurate
Gas mileage could have been better
