    64000 Miles On OE Tires

    I got over 100,000 miles on two sets of Michelins on my 98 Explorer. I do mostly city driving. My Edge has almost 20,000 miles on it and the Pirelli's still have a lot of tread, but I do mostly highway driving with it.

    new to ford in general

    Welcome! I have had 13 cars since I have been driving. All were Fords, except for two. Those two were total and complete lemons. One I bought brand new, was expensive at the time and it broke down after I left the dealership. It was such a bad lemon that it just sat parked while I made the payments and paid the high insurance on it, while I drove my aunts old Ford Fairmont. I won't go away from Ford ever again. I do have a 1990 Cadillac Allante that is pretty nice, but I want to get rid of it, since I need the garage space. Good luck with your Edge, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do mine!

    Please welcome....

    Congrats on your new family member! He is beautiful! Great job on rescuing him from the shelter. Brings back great memories of when I adopted from the shelter. I am like you, I like dogs more than people. I hope you have a long happy life together. I like his name, it is perfect.

    Hard waters spots?

    Is vinegar really safe for a car finish? I know that vinegar is bad for clear plastic, because the acid will make it cloudy, so wouldn't it do the same thing to the clear coat finish?

    Welcome! Very nice choice in vehicles. You sure know how to dress up a driveway.

    oil change? 5.5 quarts?

    I have never changed the oil in my 08 Edge myself. I take it to the dealer. The last time I took it for an oil change, the mechanic came to me and said that my Edge takes 6 quartz and there would be an additional charge for the extra quart. They never put 6 quartz in the other times. As for engineers, don't get me started! I work with engineers daily and know first hand not to trust anything they design!

    I want to enter, but I have a couple of things that I want to do before entering. But I guess I can go ahead and enter since there aren't many entering yet.

    #3 bottom bar body color. It looks good and will be different than all of the Sports.

    Both cars are very nice! The Stang looks like the one that got trashed in the movie Wrong Turn. I was so upset when they wrecked that one just for a movie.

    Sync Update

    I had mine done in 2010 for free. Ford sent me a notice with a coupon to have it upgraded and 911 assist installed with the upgrade. I had a 3 month time frame to get it done before the coupon expired. I didn't notice any difference.
  13. I have the same problem with my 08, thought I was the only one that had this problem.

    Well I most definitely didn't see this one coming

    GEEZ DUDE!!! This should have had a warning label! Not only did it make me sick to my stomach, but way to sad to read first thing in the morning. I am so glad that you didn't give this redneck inbred what he deserves, because you would be in more trouble than him. Losing a pet is devastating, but to lose him so young and in such a senseless way is horrible! Please keep us posted on what, if anything happens to this worthless P.O.S. Several years ago my nieces little dog was abducted by a neighbor that she had a run in with. He threw the little dog off of a bridge as he drove across. He only had to pay a fine, even though animal groups got involved. My cousin was shot in the head and his 2 y.o. son was shot in the head by his neighbor after he took a restraining order out on him, so everyone needs to be aware that psycho's live all around us. Be careful how you deal with this piece of crap, he might come after you next. Be very alert and stay safe!
