There are good dealers and bad dealers and unfortunately Ford doesn't have much control over the bad ones. Take it to a different dealer and at least give them one shot at fixing the real problem. You're not getting your money back just because one dealer misdiagnosed the problem.

Hello. I have been reading in here for a while. Lately I have been shopping and I am sorta in between a new Grand Cherokee and the New Edge. I like them both but, really do not need the off road abilities of the new jeep.
I am somewhat afraid of the MFT drama. I also don't like that you cannot get a loaded EDGE without MFT.
Am I gonna regret the EDGE. Looking at a Black edge Limited with 20" chrome clads and most options....
Anyone, anyone??? Thanks

I have had my 2010 Limited AWD for about a year now and it really is one of the most enjoyable vehicles I have ever owned. Only complaint, kind of a gas hog in city driving. Highway mileage is fine. I have the 20" wheels and Platinum White colour. Sharp looking.

Though I am a little afraid of MFT issues. I am picking up my Limited tonight. Black on Black 302A and 20" Chrome Clads. I am excited to get my first Ford. No more imports. This is HUGE for me.

OK, we have narrowed it down to the Edge and Honda Pilot,
My wife likes the drive and options with the Edge but the space of the Pilot (we are coming from the Odyssey)
Do the back row of seats move forward and backward or do they stay in place (I know the back rests tilt)?
Can we take the headrests off the back row of seats? My wife finds it hard to see out of the back with them.
Do you think two full size suit cases fit in the back of the edge?
Thanks in advance,

I don't think the 2nd row seats move. Yes you can remove the headrests.
I don't understand the last question. You can put way more than 2 full sized suitcases in the back of the Edge.
Have you considered the Explorer? It's got the bells and whistles of the Edge but has a 3rd row and more room.

Have you actually taken the head rests off the second row? As I said, I had two dealers try to remove them but they were only able to slide them up and down

On second thought - I think I remembered a post that you need to release the headrests from inside the seat.
See if there is a small hole in the plastic piece where the post enters the seat that will accept a metal paper clip. If so you need to press something in that hole to release it. If not then it might be necessary to remove the back off the seat to access the post from the inside. Either way it is possible.

I do not own the car unfortunately so I can't check that.
