    summer to winter tire

    50 is the absolute maximum not the recommended pressure. Stick with 35.
  2. Just to make sure - because this has happened before - you’re reaching inside the door handle like you’re going to open it, right? The sensor is on the inside of the handle. Does it fail on both front and rear drivers side doors? Does the lock touch function work?

    Cadillac to Ford

    Not date of manufacture. The warranty starts on the delivery date. But you are correct that the 7 years is from the OEM warranty start date.

    2.0L Ecoboost Coolant Leak

    Because it’s a flaw in the block coolant passages. They used a slot and that lead to cracking in the block. They changed it to a drilled passage.
  5. Most mfrs didn’t allow that but some have changed recently. But it’s also because Ford has allowed you to use voice control to manage destinations for over a decade. Easier and safer,

    2022 Edge timetable

    Not that I’ve seen reported but they still have a lot of edges waiting on chips so not surprising,

    Tire size

    Most likely yes. Only concern is that the wheels clear the brake calipers and 20s are usually big enough. Make sure to use the OEM 20” tire size.

    2021 Edge order canceled

    Meanwhile Ford’s average transaction prices jumped by $9K! They’re making up for lower volume with higher profit margins.

    2019 Ford Edge ST Replacement Tire Options

    I’ve never gotten more than 35K from any tires regardless of rating. My 21” Pirelli scorpions only last 25K.

    2021 Edge order canceled

    It sucks but they just aren’t able to build very many due to the chip shortage and other vehicles getting priority. Have you checked surrounding inventory? What’s your zip and what exactly did you order?
  12. I never use manual input. “Destination address”. “123 Main Street Atlanta”. Hit the Start button. Couldn’t be easier.
  13. U.S. liability concerns. Blame the barristers.
  14. Sounds like the struts are ok.

    08 Edge intermittent battery light

    If it’s more than 3 yrs old it’s either bad or about to be bad. Obviously it’s good to test it IF you have a digital tester that measures CCA and not the old style testers or voltmeters. Those are worthless.
