    Just purchased a 2011 Ford Edge Limited for my daughter. Got it at Mac Haik Ford in Desoto. Got a great deal and very good service.

    Ford has a pretty solid vehicle here. The touch screen is amazing along with the synch for phone.
    It has a 3.5 V6 and gets 27mpg on the road.(epa)
    Her 2007 Kia Sportage was a V6 3liter and got 25 mpg epa

    So many of us getting new cars or family members getting new cars lately! I will be a while cause of school, but dad might get one so I'll spam us with pics of it if/when he does. Sadly not every new purchase is a Nissan product, but on the bright side, it makes us more well-rounded to have different brand experiences.

    Next summer I'm gonna rent a new Altima. Yippee! Maybe if I can't buy and review, I'll just keep renting, lol.

    picked it up

    we drove up to desoto tx to pick it up.
    Nice ergonomics. the seat goes deep, and the arm rest is high. THe shifter is short and just fits into your hand as your arm is on the console. Manual shifting is an up/down thumb button on the shifter
    Very tight for a 4 door. Barely rolls when making a turn. She has the chrome 18 w/245/60/18.
    Voice recognition is instant and the syching is amaxing.
    Two info screens on each side of the speddo gauge with multi functions controled from the steering wheel.

    did a up&down 10 mile run at 60mph on cruise contrl and got 32mpg!

    sorry, my camera was dead but my daught got some picks

    This kinda makes me want to intern at Ford. Sounds like a nicely engineered vehicle.

    to be clear, she's paying for it, I just helped her get a deal!
    She had wanted the black leather but it was impossible to find.

    I am really impressed with the fit and finish of the interior. Very solid. Nothing looks cheap or feels cheap.

    I would like the mpg information screen to be larger.......but that's just me.
