Traded 07 Suburban for 09 Mariner.
Mercury too small and slow - got a good deal and traded for 2011 Edge.
No leather - no sync - no Ford touch - result - good car.
Looked at Chevy Equinox, Honda CRV- Acura - Toyota Rav 4 and Highlander - Mazda CX7.
Ford seemed better made and more solid.
Mazda, even though same underpinings, seemed cheaper and required premium gas.
Hit gas in Edge and car goes.
Brakes are good and steering feedback are just fine considering it's a CX.
Wish it had blue tooth as an option.
Hard to see right front end at times.
Agree about headrests, but we are used to them now with a little bit of recline in the seat.
Biggers wheels improve mileage by 1-3 MP
Comfortable on longer trips
Love reclining rear seats and 1 handed fold down for rear seats
Kids love rear air vents
Rear cargo cover - lol - don't bother.
Needs simple Bluetooth
18 inch wheels should be available as standalone option
Don't like headrests
