Bought the wife a new SUV

It's the 2008 Ford(of course) Edge. This little thing is pretty sweet, 3.5l V6, 265hp\250ft lb. We traded her little Escape on it, & there's alot more room inside the Edge. Ford did a pretty good job on this one .

Re: Bought the wife a new SUV

Nice choice, we like the Edge too.

Incredible mileage ! ! !

It seems like the new, 2008 EPA numbers are way overly conservative & maybe biased against the domestics?

Vaya con Dios.
