  1. Ford's infotainment systems are just garbage. My girlfriend runs a rental car agency branch and gets to pick what she drives home every night. Out of every manufacturer, Ford easily has the worst system to use with Carplay. Specifically Lincolns for some reason.

    Switch from Ford to Honda

    9000 rpm shifts through a slick 5 speed is a great feeling!

    Switch from Ford to Honda

    Old member here. Still have my Edge and Mustang but have picked up two older Hondas in the past 3.5 years. One is a 1992 Civic EX Sedan (fully-loaded grandma spec, big engine and auto trans) and the other is a Japanese market 1996 spec Integra Type R (if Honda made a GT350 in the 90s). I cannot utter enough praises for these old things. Honda's engineering in the 1980s and 1990s was incredible. Only thing they could have done better is paint their vehicles with something that won't burn off if you look at it funny.

    What to expect at 200,000+ miles

    How many more of us original owners/original family owners exist here? I haven't logged in here in years. My 07 SEL+ AWD (purchased new by dad in 07) sat for quite a few years with minimal driving/occasional idling. I have started driving it more (specifically in the winter). It has ~165,000 miles and decent undercarriage rust. Original PTU, water pump, etc. This thing has been driven like a NASCAR since 2007. High speed highway runs and lots of plowing through deep snow / powersliding. Just replaced LR wheel speed sensor, checked/added fresh PTU fluid, replaced flex pipe. Now getting a very definitive BANGING sound at 10-30 mph. I feel it through the center console/floor. Hoping it's just a trans mount and not a PTU issue or carrier bearing. FordEdge.jfif
  5. 07 Edge 3.5L AWD 127k miles When I have the Edge parked on an incline and shift out of park, the load dissipates and a loud "clunk" is heard as usual when reverse engages. However, this clunk continues to reverberate sometimes until i move off of the incline. It's almost like a tinny rattling sound, like something is bouncing around the front end of the vehicle once the transmission is in gear. The transmission also makes a strange sound in reverse, like a very quiet ticking when backing up an incline.

    What Edge Trim Level Did You Choose and Why

    I don't know if any of you remember the SEL AWD PLUS trim level, but that's what our 07 Edge is. Ford replaced it with the Limited shortly thereafter. Has basically every option available minus the nav system and moonroof. Has the DVD player in the back, climate control/heated seats, came with chrome-plated 18 inch wheels, no tow package, and of course AWD. I believe it has the 3.39 final drive, but I have to double check the axle code

    Summer Tri-State Area Meet NORTHEAST USA

    Hey guys, just wondering if anyone wants to meet up in Northern New Jersey to cruise around and get some chow at the Chatterbox drive in, possibly on the night of a car show.

    Cleaning entire engine bay+valve covers

    Hey guys, I'm just wondering what the best way is to clean the entire engine bay without damaging any electrical components. The valve covers have a coating of salt/corrosion(??) that I would like to remove, too. Any tips?

    This looks INCREDIBLE! Amazing job my friend!

    Slotted/Drilled Rotors

    Phil, we have powerstop slotted/cross-drilled on our 2007 Edge. They work AMAZING in conjunction with a set of ceramic brake pads. Only warning is that the rotors are zinc-coated to keep a nice silver finish for around a year. After a year, some surface rust starts to show on the vents/hub. This can be coated with High-Heat paint by Rustoleum. I would highly recommend the rotors/pads though!

    After installing this intake, did you have to get a tune to reprogram the air/fuel ratio? (SCT Tuner, etc)

    08 MKX with H&R Springs

    I don't believe he is, although he can be found on his Youtube channel. He has videos of him racing (and beating) a Lancer GTS at the drag strip, and a few walkaround videos/exhaust videos of his car. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q5NxUbf35aw
  14. I posted this in Classifieds, but just want to get a bigger audience. Anyone interested in a set of 4 factory 18 inch chrome-clad aluminum wheels off a 2007 Edge SEL+ AWD? They're in great condition, and come with 235wide Hankook Ventus AS tires with 15k miles. I'm located in the tri-state PA/NY/NJ area. Anyone interested? NOTE: The wheels are dirty right now (as seen in the one picture) but clean up very nicely as evidenced in the other photos. Also, they come equipped with the TPMS and do not have center caps.
