Comments, you asked ok...First ...You get a rough hard ride in a
Corvette,I tried it once...Wait I have some more...I had a 05 Ford Five
Hundred SEL FWD in 2004,very nice...Then She made me sell my 01 Ford 150
Lariat...Said one rig should do us dear...Ok I said we need a mixed use
rig then and traded the car...Now I have a 06 Freestyle LTD AWD...22mpg
city 28+mpg highway...Love it ,never get stuck in snow...well when I can
get to drive it...Cute...She got her own keys,ouch!
I'm just waiting now for my new Ice Blue Taurus X LTD AWD I ordered
Aug.1 (with one set of keys<g>)...Its looking even better in everyway
and better on gas I'm told as well than the Edge which is 2" shorter
wheelbase...OK OK And yes the Edge is very nice as well but I like a
comforable ride...I did test one out...
Go get a test drive of both rigs then see how you feel as you have to
pay for it...Ford has a great web site on line where you can build what
you want and get a price...They send me a free 500.00 coupon to use on
the sale on line to me here and they had Ford Family pricing on down
here,Canada, for July and Aug...Saved near 4000.00 more of reg. ford
Problems ? not really in my case with either car or SUV...I got very
good service at the Ford dealer here in Sydney I deal with...just one
thing bugs me...Its the tires they all came with that I don't like...I
found poor tread wear,some tire noise, they tend to effect the road
handling of the rig and got some highgroplaning in rain that scared
Now...This is my opinion based on the experiences I have had ok...So I
am still buying a new rig from Ford, cause I like them...but...I'm
changing the factory tires on the new one soon as it comes in to
Bridgestone Turanzaw Serenity P225/60/R18...
The www.TireRack.com has lots of tire reviews on all the tires...

I really appreciate your evaluation. I do!
I currently have an 04 Chrysler Red Convertible Limited which I may or may
not be trading in. Wife has an 07 Hyundai Santa Fe Limited.
Getting too old for all the bending to get in and out of the vert. Love the
Santa Fe as well as the wife (take it either way, its OK), Had an 02 Santa
Fe prior to getting the 07 in July 06.
Pretty much made up my mind to get me an 07 Santa FE Limited which now comes
with satellite radio. Would use hers around town and the other for trips.
She already has over 22000 miles on her 14 month old.
After talking with the gentleman over the weekend, who could buy anything
out there including Rolls Royces, and his praise, I've set up a drive
appointment for this weekend.
Biggest drawback of the Santa Fe is that the nearest Hyundai dealer is 85
miles away. Have not had an issue with either Hyundai other than one time
she did not put back the gas cap correctly on the 02. Big Deal huh?
Thanks again for your comments.
I was involved in the Ford "Swap Your Ride" campaign now running on
tv. Had a chance to drive an Edge and it was a very impressive
vehicle. I'm seriously considering an Edge for my next ride. Do a test
drive before you choose.
I should explain. I was not one of the people who swapped a car. I was
the A1 or head of the audio crew on the project. I knew that it was a
Ford project long before the shoots began. How the people were chosen
I don't know.
