    Engine overheating

    Also when you refilled it did you just fill up until the rad was full or did you make sure the system was bled?
  2. Going through tirerack you can get set with sensors for under 1500 plus shipping depending on where you live, with a set of blizzaks so there are cheaper options on their site too.
  3. A 19' rim is a poor choice as it's not a common factory rim size so will give you limited options. You are better off with 20 or 18 inch if you want options. The added safety of a winter grip in cold weather is worth it even if it's only a few months out of the year. You could likely, I know I can, get aftermarket 18" rims and 18' winter grips cheaper than buying a new set for the 21s and run the 21s for another summer or 2.

    Poor trans shifting theory investigation

    If this is what you are trying to fix stop wasting your time. There is currently a note from ford on oasis that it's a known issue, most of us suffer from it, and they are working on a fix. The last flash was only to fix shifting while driving not going from park to reverse or drive, etc.
  6. I actually do and regularly drive around Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Calgary and Edmonton. I've been in cities where people think their horns are toys, it becomes meaningless because they are honked so often no one even looks when one is honked. It's called defensive driving, pay attention to your surroundings for other peoples screw ups and ignorance. Once you are used to it, its easy and you can still have fun driving.

    Just double tap the S button instead.
  8. There are numerous vehicles with minimal gear selection and no paddle shifters, including electric vehicles that don't have a transmission, your complaint is going to go no where.

    Snow ability

    It's not so much the rim size when it comes to winter traction. Going with a smaller rim size in winter helps with ride quality and the tire can take more abuse, because of a larger sidewall and so can the rim, smaller diameter is less likely to bend or break due to the tire being able to absorb the impact of the ruts, heaves, etc caused by winter and packed snow. When it comes to traction in winter it's the width of the tire that matters. A narrower tire puts more weight on the contact patch of the tire to the road. On ice this increases traction. It also helps going through snow. A narrower tire will cut more through snow than a wider tire that may float more on top of the snow, decreasing traction. Winter tires multiply this effect with sipes for gripping ice and a lug meant for cutting through snow. Just make sure the tire is a similar height as the factory size if you go narrower or your speedo will be out.

    This ^^ Modern cars can be bad if the ground clearance is not enough, but otherwise if it sucks it is because of the wrong tire for your conditions. Also hear the argument "I've always run all-seasons." Not all tires are created equal so unless you are running the exact same tire as your previous cars you can't compare. I find the edge great in winter, but I also found my 97 camaro quite capable way back when I used to drive it in winter, along with any other car I owned. They all ran winter tires though and granted the edge has been the most capable.

    Battery drain issue?

    It's also possible your alternator is getting weak and not adequately charging your battery. I'd test it while you are there too.
  14. Go to this site, download the latest sync software and it should go away. Otherwise turn off auto updates. https://owner.ford.com/tools/account/how-tos/keep-your-sync-up-to-date.html

    Try checking the wrecking yards there have been more than a few edges sold from 2015-18 with the 2.0l. A stock air box from an SE to Titanium with a 2.0L should work fine, if you hadn't considered it.
