    New Addition

    So.... My Wife got her new Escape. Kicking and screaming, she sold her 2009 Escape Hybrid and picked up a nice SEL. She loves all of the new technology. That's when things got interesting. I was looking at upgrading my Expy, but I ended up driving and Edge Sport. HOLY COW, the thing is fast. Pin you into your seat, fast. Well, I bought one. It'll take delivery, next week. There was like 4 grand on the hood PLUS X Plan. Nice car.

    Good night and good luck.

    I've had a Mustang, an 11 convertible (although I'd like to see how much better this one drives). I wanted something with pep that also had AWD. The Mustang and the Vette before it, were always stored as they weren't Michigan Winter friendly. This Edge actually pushed me back into the seat with some pretty stealthy acceleration. I did some hard cornering with it and took it though some pretty tough pot holey roads (not hard to do in MI). Cons? Everyone is driving one. Pros? Not many Sports on the road, here. This is my 6th Ford from this Dealership and probably my 10th product from FOMOCO. Even though, Throughout my driving years, I've owned WAY more GM Vehicles.

    Good night and good luck.

    Congrats on the purchase, Jry. I have a Chevrolet, GMC and a Ford. I bought the Ford because of the huge interior for the family and the technology it has. It's been a great truck and I have no complaints. I will look at the new GM trucks when they arrive, but nothing against the Ford so far. I know several people with the Ford Edge and they all have been pleased. Best of luck to you and the wife on your new Fords.

    Could be like that scene in Demolition man where they eat in a post-apocalyptic Taco Bell. I think there was a smear of guacamole, a line of Grey Poupon, and a tiny little chunk of that stuff you use to cleanse your pallet at a sushi joint on the plate and nothing else.

    'no more for me thanks, I'm full!'

    I was going to hold out for the Atlas Cross Trek (or whatever they plan on calling it) as I think the thing is sharp, but I knew that it wouldn't have a big enough V6 under the hood. I wanted function and acceleration. We got about 5K in considerations, as well.

    Good night and good luck.
