I have a 2007 Eddie Bauer V6...get around 14 City and up to 22 hwy. This is driving with a really light foot.

Statistics in the hands of the media are like a lamppost to a drunk—they're used more for support than illumination.
#789 of 811 have an '07 edge as a loaner

it has about 34.5k on it. it is an awd se, so fairly basic. the drivetrain seems pretty good, quiet,smooth. the driver seat is really comfortable. i bought a fusion about 3 months ago, but i would have put more thought into an edge, if i had sat in the driver seat. i had been in the passenger seat before.
the tires really suck. new hankook's. they have 2 different noises they make on the highway, especially 70 mph.
there is a lot more rear seat headroom without the vista roof.

They ditched the Hankook and Continental tires on the 08s - they come with Michelins. At least the 18s and 20s versions - not 100% sure about the 17s.
#791 of 811 I'm really interested in the Mazda cx7 -torn between that and an Edge

I am trading in my Mercury Mountaineer 2006 AWD V8 for something with better gas mileage. I'm giving up the 3rd row seat for a lower payment. Which of these is better? I want one fully loaded with everything but dvd entertainment pkg. help! I'm looking at the Ford Edge Limited and the Mazda CX7.

Consider the payment difference there, too. The fuel economy isn't going to be THAT much better than your Mountaineer if you are still going with a 2 ton SUV.

We traded a V8 Aviator for an Edge Limited. We went from 19-20 hwy to 23-24 hwy and from 15 city to 17-19 depending on traffic. Not huge but a significant bump.
The CX-7 is smaller and sportier but the Edge has Sync and assuming the rest is either close or not important to you I'd go with a Syncified Edge (actually, I already did!).

do you have the AWD on your Edge? also what type of gas does it use? regular I hope.

FWD. All Edges use 87 octane fuel.
