I purchased a 2011 Ford Edge SEL AWD with 64K miles about a month ago. It replaced a 1996 Chevy Tahoe with about 300K miles that was finally starting to show it's age. (so far, the best truck I've owned)Since then, I've put about 2000 miles on the Edge and am really enjoying it. I really like the handling, its very tight and agile. It has great traction in everything from snow to dry pavement. The brakes are GREAT! Acceleration is good too. It really puts the sport in SUV. Gas mileage has been pretty close to the ratings. Instrumentation and controls are well placed and easy to use.
Other things I like are the storage space under the rear deck around the spare tire, the large flat cargo space with the rear seats folded down, and a lift gate that really works. All of the routine maintenance items are located where they can be easily accessed.
On the other side, a few minor issues. The standard drivers side seat is good, but my wife doesn't think the passenger seat fits her very well. There's less storage space that's accessible from the drivers seat. The center console takes up a lot of room and the storage compartment in it is awkward to get into.
I miss having full engine instrumentation. Engine temperature is all you get, and only if you select it on the center display.
All in all, I think this vehicle really fits my needs well and I'm really happy with it. It's a lot of fun to drive and it can still haul a lot of stuff.
