2011 Ford Edge SEL 3.5 V6 from North America
A sleek CUV with plenty of power
Front struts (Pennsylvania roads are awful in the winter time).
Overall I really wasn't looking for an Edge when I began my car shopping process. I test drove several other cars before the Edge. I looked at the Edge on a fluke and bought it after a test drive. It's roomy inside with great legroom (I'm 6'1) and I have to pull the seat up some to reach the pedals. Interior trim and pieces seem to be made well. My Edge, being a SEL, came with the Vista sunroof, MyFord Touch, and the upgraded gauge setup. With almost a 142.5K miles, there are no rattles on the inside. The MyFord Touch system works fine, but can be a little slow when first turning on in the morning. Sync has been great so far.
The one gripe I have is with the cloth interior, which is a light color that seems to stain easy when water hits it. Also the interior noise at highway speeds is very low and is comparable with my older Infiniti G37.
It has more than ample power from the 285 HP V6. Passing is a breeze when the time is needed. So far fuel mileage has been decent for the most part. Highway is about 27-28. If you run between 50-55 MPH it will get over 30. City has been about 17-19. My Edge is FWD, so taking off from a stop light you need to be gentle or else it will peel out.
The projector headlights are good but not great; I will be doing a HID retrofit ASAP. I will keep updates on the car posted on here.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

One thing: "Pennsylvania roads are awful in the winter time".
And they are about 0.01% percent better during the rest of the year ;)

I wrote the review and you're right, Pennsylvania roads are awful during the whole year. But the roads here in Philadelphia are trash LOL.
