Couple of questions on the 2011 Edge before I buy.


Recommended Posts

Hi everybody! Looking to buy a new 2011 Edge Sport and have a couple of questions.


Is the 2011 Edge of the 2nd build yet? I thought when a car was built that the factory would call a certain run the 2nd run where all updates or revisions would be applied at the factory.


The other question is I looked at the owners manuals on the Ford web site and they are up to three(3) revisions of the manual. I downloaded the 3rd revision and I read in the manual on page 23 under Instrument Cluster/Remote Start Settings that the steering wheel was listed. My Dodge Ram that I'm trading in has a heated steering wheel and was wondering if this was a late availability option. Also cooled seats were listed.


Anybody know about these three things I'm curious about?


- 2nd run at the factory

- Heated Steering Wheel

- Cooled seats

I love my heated seats but cooled?


My butt on ice? Hmm, have to give that one some thought before I agree it's a good idea.


They're fantastic on a hot day. My wife almost forced us into spending $5000 more for the MKX just to get cooled seats. She used them a lot in the summer after a hot day of tennis.


If you don't have them you won't miss them but once you do have them they're hard to give up.

As thinguy said, the heated steering wheel and cooled seats are only available on the Lincoln MKX version of the vehicle. A shame, too - I have a 2011 Limited Edge and would have loved to get the cooled seats for the hot Texas summers.


Unfortunately, I don't have any info on the 2nd run at the factory.
