I bought a 2010 srx and picked it up in feb.2010 I couldn't wait to get it but after a month I had nothing but trouble with it it was at the dealers about 2months all together for different problems,tomorrow I am picking my new ford edge sport which rides a lot better than the srx and a lot more room in the back.

Sorry to hear you had a lemon. All brands have 'em for sure. The Edge is pretty (especially the 2011 minor re-do) Wish you had taken a 2011 instead though.

I dated a girl once and it was worse than a root canal. Then dated her sister! WOW! Different creature all together, and from same manufacturers! It happens.

Thx for buying an American, profit and research product. I always do.

All the best!

That's funny. Great analogy. How true.

John, there are some known glitches with the new Edge too. My wife just bought one a few weeks ago, so I have personal knowledge of this. Great car, but none of these "computers on wheels" are perfect, just like all computers.

I had a new Edge rental in Conneticut. Less than 200 miles on it when I got it. Kept it for a week and put almost 2000 miles on it. Nice car decent gas mileage, but it's no SRX.

Sube, I thought it was psychologically impossible for a Caddy owner and a Ford owner to co-exist under the same roof :)

LOL! Yelp, we get along just fine. Personally, it's never been about the prestige of having a certain "badge" on the front of my car. I love my SRX and would have bought it if it was a Hyundai. :bouncy:

The Edge has some nice features I wish we had in the SRX, like radar controlled cruise control and blind spot detection. But there are also some features missing that I wouldn't want to be without. I never understood why one car company can't just combine all of the best features of every car and put them all into one model. I guess I'm dreaming on that one. :cool:

Happy to hear everything is good in the Sube household! I also want to add how I fully agree with you that car companies should learn/copy from each other. The consumer would be much better off

Sorry it didn't work out John. Life is too short to be unhappy. Best of luck.

Hope the Edge is a winner for you, John. Good luck, and thanks for buying American. :patriot:

I drove the Lincoln (Edge) before I purchased my SRX. I preferred the harder ride of the SRX over the Edge (made in Canada) and the Edge looks like a jelly bean with wheels. Just my .02 worth.
I really enjoy my SRX & my wife loves it.
