..yes!!!...come up with plan B since from what I hear the start of production date for the 2008 EDGE is the week of Sept 17...but one never knows. I don't think we will see any 08 until mid to late October,maybe November. Of course dealers are reluctant to talk about 08 since they do have some 07 left in their inventories and Ford is offering incentives to help clear any 07...trying to sell and buy is always difficult to execute..good luck to you..

To all of you Ford edge owners:
What do you like best about it? How is the Ford edge reliability? I am thinking about buying one. I would like to know how everybody likes it or dislikes it.

1)Sweet & Comfy ride.. go test drive one.. Vista roof is nice for Hot nights..had a 95 explorer 4x4 with 165 k & paid $28.3k & high financing..2) paid 29.4K & ZERO financing for 07 EDGE AWD +SEL.. 3) 21mpg is much better & does not drive like a truck/my explorer... 4) Carbon Metallic looks sharp..

Thanks for the info. What about the issue with the Edge being so heavy? Can you turn it easily? How is the turn ratio?
I looked at the Saturn Vue but it is too small. I really want to buy from an American company but you know how it is everyone says buy Toyota/Honda more reliable.
I want to get at least 20 mpg. My 10 year old Laredo jeep gets a lot less.

No issues, its turns easily, do you want me to compare it to my 95 Explorer or my 52 chevy 1/2 ton with a camaro clip.. Heavy?? No, NO it gets up & goes, very pepy & sharp But do me a favor & go & test drive one & get back to us, how you like it... After 165k on my 95 Explorer & only changing the oil every 4k, tires & no major maint.it was a no brainer for me to buy a another FORD.. My wife has a 98 Honda Accord EX & says she really likes the ride on the EDGE
comparing it to my stiff/truck like Explorer or her Honda...

I will test drive one and let you know. I have a list so far but I am partial to the Ford because it looks so cool plus is a FORD!!!
I read some reviews about the weight and some people go and on about the weight and gas mileage that is the reason why I am asking. Thanks.

Only issue about the Edge that I have noticed so far is spotty paint quality.
If you are buying an Edge, take an extra moment to look over the car in bright light. Most I have sold have excellant paint but I also saw a couple with unexceptable paint defects. All just cosmetic stuff but still not something you should see on a new car.

I reversed them using a paperclip but once I did they are no longer on hand adjustable. To move you need two hands one on button one wirh paper clip and another person to move headrest, Does yours work normal once r3eversed?
