    I'm trying to find a good comparison to see if anyone thinks the Ford Edge interior is really that great and so far the Jeep leads even WITHOUT the SRT upgrade.

    Ours is the limited we had a ford edge rental for a few weeks the jeep beats it hands down in my view of the too! The wife was wanting a edge so last vacation we rented one to drive to d c . She seem to like it OK but I already had my sights set on a jeep. So the next week we went to a dealer and I got her in one she drove it around the block came back and said she had to have the jeep! So the hunt was on for the right on and 3 months later we found it! It is fully loaded the only thing it doesn't have is the quadra lift! Wish it did but I have no use for it! Is awesome tho! Ours has the select terrain,command view,hid lights,and the list goes on and on. It even has a/c seat! Lol

    What model is it? What motor? And if you don't mind me asking what did it sticker for?

    All we could find were stripped down or fully loaded.

    Its a 2013 jeep Grand Cherokee limited 4x4 they wanted 46000 for it but got it for 35500 with no trade in and I fill it was worth it she loves! It has the 3.6 pentastar in it 6 speed auto so far it averaged about 28 mpg which I fell is good for a SUV of this size. The only one they make nicer is the overland. The srt8 is worthless in my books if I want to go fast I'll get my chevelle of trans am out. They keep trying to push the hemi on me but I didn't want it either. If I want a 5.7 I'll get a Chevy and as far as it fills on power you wouldn't know it was a v6 unless I told you! 5 star crash rating too. That was also on my list because it will be her mommy car! Lol I'm getting old! Its not for everyone but it fits our needs!

    Sorry to hear this as it's certainly not common. Sounds like your family has no luck with diesels, either that or you don't follow the proper maintenance.
    A lot of damage can happen in 5-1/2 years no matter how many miles.

    You guys are leaving out the most important parts.

    All the Jeeps are Rubicon tested. Jeep's tested up there for years.

    Some 2011 testing...

    Plus the Jeep has a 7" fully customizable TFT display in the speedo cluster. Fuel mileage display is certainly available along with many other parameters. My 03 mpg display is 0.5-1 mpg off but the 2011 Dodge Journey I drove for a while was much better (0.1-0.25 off).

    As for interior design and materials, that's opinion really.

    The Edge has a transverse power train. The only thing that is really comparable is the interior room.
