    Mobil 1 oil rebate program

    I’ll pay double somewhere else before I spend a penny at Wal-Mart. Their business practices are atrocious.
  3. Both todd92 and Waldo are correct. And you’ll have to trust me when I tell you that Waldo is an expert on tires, suspension and vehicle handling. You need winter tires for ice traction and narrower tires for snow.

    New 2020 EDGE ST

    According to the order guide it’s not included with the base 400a pkg and when I do build and price it shows it as part of the 401a package.

    Driver inhibits bypass?

    Much safer and easier to use voice control and/or create playlists for easy reference.
  7. For me, the fact that the OEM filter backs up a 5 yr 60k mile warranty and the other ones don’t mean I’m not taking a chance.

    Leaking Shock

    Is it causing major driving issues? If not I wouldn't worry about it. And if it is I would make the dealer do it.
  9. Help me understand why a performance filter is better with 7500 mile or less intervals. Filter performance is the same until it goes into bypass, right? If it’s good at 3500 miles it’s still good at 7500 and I don’t see how it would go into bypass u less the engine was coming apart.
  10. Trade it for a 2015 Sport and throw a tune on it.

    2019 Edge Low Speed Surge/Buck

    That’s because the dealers are just as clueless. Just look up any reference that a Ford makes to adaptive learning. None mention driving style or driving habits. They only say improved shift quality. My information comes from Mark Kovalsky - a retired Ford tranny engineer who worked on the Explorer/Ranger/Lincoln LS 5R55N and later the torqshift truck tranny. He is a member of our Lincoln LS owners club for 20 years now. It was his group that was responsible for the shift calibrations and that is how he explained it. I’ll take his word and Ford’s word over the dealership. Here is a confirmation about the torqshift but all Ford trannys work the same.

    2019 Edge Low Speed Surge/Buck

    Because it DOESNT LEARN YOUR DRIVING HABITS! Sorry for yelling but this is an urban myth that just won’t go away. Nowhere has Ford ever said that. Read what Ford said - it simply measures each shift against the factory target and adjusts the shift pressure to keep it in the target range. This compensates for wear over time and manufacturing tolerances. And it’s based on gear, throttle position and rpm. So it takes a long time for normal driving to hit all of those different combinations.

    Question about the S mode

    The transmission is 100% computer controlled. It won’t do anything that could cause damage.

    Is the Edge Platform going away?

    Hard to say with contract negotiations going on, but I think it’s likely it will stay there unless they decide to use Oakville for trucks/suvs.
