I think Edmunds review is not very fair on this vehicle. We test drove the RAV 4 and CRV and they can't even compare. Ford has made a masculine, fuel efficient, comfortable riding, plenty-of-room SUV. To me, the other competitors "SUVs" are very sissy and nerdy. They also do not contain the features the Ford has. And, no I don't work for Ford and it's been awhile since we've owned one. I believe the sales speak for themselves as you can't hardly find one on the lot right now.
Fuel efficiency -- Avg. 25 to 26 all of the time Plenty of room for driver and passengers Opening back glass -- not available on competitors Truck-like styling Back seats fold flat -- not available on CRV Smooth ride Comfortable and wide seats Sirius Satellite radio
The no gas cap fill up is stupid. This just makes it easier for people to steal your gas. Parking brake needs to go in center of vehicle. A little more cargo room in the back.
