#25 of 197 2007 Edge question
Sep 16, 2007 (5:23 pm)
I am towards the end of my lease and looking for a new car. The Edge is on my list and I have a question for you folks.
I have read that depreciation in the first year is about 15% to 25%. So if we are looking at a 2007, shouldnt they be about 15-25% less at this time of year if there are a bunch sitting on the lot, or am I way off base.
going by Fords website there are a ton of 2007 Edge's in my area (central NJ) but I have not requested quotes yet.
any input would be appreciated.

You are off base. The leftover 2007 models will have lower lease residuals than the 2008 models and the other incentives will be higher on the 2007 models as well. The reason there are so many 2007's left is that they were being made through last Friday 9/14. 2008 Production starts tomorrow. There will still be new 2007's arriving at dealers for several more weeks.

#28 of 197 Ford Edge, Good deal-bad dealership
Oct 09, 2007 (3:46 am)
About 2 weeks ago, I picked up a 2007 Ford Edge SEL+, copper with black leather, 18" alloys, Vista-view. Audiophile 9 spkr sound system, etc. I really like the vehicle and get a lot of compliments on it. As to the deal, I live in metro Atlanta and there are many dealerships, so pricing is competitive. Initially, dealerships were quick to agree to drop sticker by 5400 in order to move inventory. The vehicle stickered at 32,810 and we paid around 26,600 for the Edge. With all of the discounts taken on the vehicle, special financing rates were not available. While the price was great, the dealership experience was rotten with a salesman who didn't know anything about the car, a less than knowledgeable service department, difficult parts group, no vehicle delivery, car was dirty at delivery as well as a variety of other problems. When the salesman stopped talking to me about my experience, he then emailed my wife at our home. Customer service agent for the dealership has dropped off the face of the earth. Car purchased at Jim Tidwell Ford in Kennesaw, GA. Avoid this dealership.

& congrats to the EDGE family.. $6200 off Mrsp not bad.. I got $4600 & zero % which I could not turn down.. but last week took the the Men out for Golf at Presido in SF, & everybody love it, total of 3 men & 3 bags which was no problem for room, even the 6'5" & 250 lbs sat in the rear seat & he love the ride (he usually rides in the front of my 95 Explorer because it would be tight in the rear seat) now on to bigger & better & comfy ride.. Hit them straight. P.S. Did this forum help you buy the Edge.. Hope so..

I love my Edge! The simple solution to the dashboard reflection in the windshield is to wear polarized sunglasses. It eliminates 90% of the glare.

I had read this forum and several other Blog sites regarding the Edge before making the purchase. I drove a couple in comparrison to other vehicles like the Nissan Murano and the Toyota FJ Cruiser and the Edge won, hands down. It was the dealership experience that got me to join and speak up. My wife is saying that we might end up being a two Edge family soon.... pretty funny.
