  1. Your sunroof decision makes perfect sense. I'm in Quebec and during the summer I never use it, as it gets too hot. Right now my vista roof is opened all the time. The sun gives a very warm and nice feeling.
  2. Do you find the key (remote) too sensitive ? The panic button gets pressed all the time when I leave the remote in my pockets. My previous car remote had the key sunked in, and you really had to press deep with a thumb nail to activate panic mode. Really this is a first-world problem... but when I do work around the house it's annoying ! Etienne

    Bent 20" Rim

    You could consider repairing the rim. I used to have 20" konig unknown rims that I have repaired 2-3 times. Shops use pressure plates with strong hydraulics that apply several tons of pressure, therefore straightening the rim. Roads are in extremely poor conditions up here so repairing rims is common. I costed me about 40$ a rim to have that work done. Etienne.

    Motor Trend Comparison

    I would have preferred seeing a comparison made with a Grand Cherokee limited

    Motor Trend Comparison

    The subaru outback front grille is also very similar, but nobody seems to complain. It's impossible to criticize what Subaru does anyway, and whenever that happens Subaru fans get very heated.

    Motor Trend Comparison

    In my opinion, to pit the Edge Sport against the Murano, and especially the Santa Fe, is nonsensical in the first place. The Edge is almost in premium territory. The Edge is much more responsive, more powerful, has better handling. The AWD technology seems superior as well on the Edge. Sound insulation is a lot better in the Edge. Overall a very superficial review lacking a lot of technical details. Etienne.

    Aftermarket wheels and tires for winter

    Thanks to all for the comments! Anyone has suggestions on USA sites ? I'm 40min from the Maine border so I can go pick up stuff there. I do it quite often !
  10. Hi ! Up here in Quebec, I'm on winter tires from the last weeks of October till beginning of May. That's roughly 24-28 weeks. Needless to say that driving in winter conditions here is something that needs to be taken seriously I have an edge sport with 21" rims. I will not put winter tires on those rims. They are too expensive and I want to protect the rims. Calcium is used here to de-ice roads and it causes a lot of damage. With that said, any suggestions on rim and tire sizes that would provide a safe driving experience on snow and ice ? I'm browsing https://www.canadawheels.ca/ Etienne.

    Edge Sport has arrived !

    No worries ! I hope you will get help and answers you need from members of this forum. Dealers usually have a visibility report they can run to trace the car. Ford knows where the car is, and on which railcar. I have seen this on other ford forums I'm pretty sure. Etienne.

    Edge Sport has arrived !

    I have ordered on 02/10. It took a very long time, because the dealer noticed only on May 15th that the 51D package was delayed until september. My build date is June 5th, so in a way I'm lucky I've avoided the water leak issues. There are a couple of threads about it.
