Sounds like Karl pretty much agrees with the First Drive's "well-packaged midsize crossover SUV" take.
"Ultimately I see the Edge being a successful product for Ford. It looks good, it drives well and it has a comfortable, roomy and attractive (if somewhat chintzy) interior. Ford is hoping for well over 100,000 in annual sales, and I think it will get them."

#7 of 14 Murano is faster 0-60, despite what article says...
Nov 04, 2006 (6:59 pm)
The Edmunds.com article is in error, because Car & Driver has the Murano doing 0-60 in 7.5 seconds, and the same magazine has the MKX (Edge clone) doing 0-60 in 8.1 seconds. The vehicles are close, but the lighter (yet same sized) Murano with the great VQ-series engine is faster.

Actually, coldcranker, my article was not in error. The 0-60 time I gave for the Murano came from a crossover SUV comparsion test Edmunds.com conducted in 2003. Here's the link if you're interested: 2003 Midsize Crossover SUVs Comparison Test Specs & Performance
Where possible, we quote from our own test results.

Assuming that the 0-60 times of both the Murano and the Edge are within 1 to 2 seconds of each other, WHO CARES!
Someone out there planing to take the Edge to Autocross?

This forum is for discussing vehicles. 0-60 times are about vehicles. Sorry if this offends you.

But does a difference of 0.5 seconds either way really matter for a vehicle like this? I don't think you could even tell the difference without a stopwatch. Just trying to be realistic.

akirby: You're "1 or 2 seconds" you mentioned previously is a big difference. Now that you say 0.5 seconds, that is a small difference. Car and Driver tends to run fast because they rev the engine with the brake on and launch hard, so they are usually about 1/2 second faster than others.

That wasn't me - that was Mark. It's not a 1 or 2 second difference, though.

My new Edge makes a loud CLUNK in the front end when I go over speed humps (the bigger ones marked 20 miles per hour). Also a lot of little front end noise going over regular speed bumps and bumps in general.
The dealer I bought the car from, Berge Ford in Mesa, Arizona is telling me it is a normal thing in this car???
I am 44 and have traded into a new car every 2 or three years since I was 25 and never had a vehicle, including many rentals, do this.
Is anyone else having this problem???
