    On the lack of HUD, it may just be a platform limitation. CD4 is pretty old, dating back to the 2007 Mondeo (called EUCD back then). It's also clear they are in cost cutting mode on Edge and Nautilus with limited engine choices and decontenting since they're going away in current form in 2-3 years. It will be interesting to see if they import the new Nautilus (presumably C2 based) from China as someone has claimed.

    Double Beep!

    Its designed to make sure you don’t accidentally drive off without the key leaving the driver stranded somewhere and to prevent the vehicle from running inside a garage creating CO. And it’s so easy to avoid by just hitting the button or not shutting the door.

    I don’t know why this is so difficult. Just don’t close the door all the way and it won’t honk. Or turn it off. Or leave the key inside.

    Corsair screen is smaller but I thought it was fine.

    Both the order guide and Ford websites are very confusing about the black label themselves and interior color choices.

    I've only seen a HUD in a 2020 Corsair we sat in a couple of months ago. It was nice and I'd love to have it on a new vehicle but not a deal breaker.

    No, a nationwide microchip shortage.

    There are Ford factory rebates and local dealer association rebates. There can also be unadvertised dealer cash in some cases.

    Really? We went from a 2008 edge to a 2016 MKX and I don’t recall the mkx being smaller.
  10. The truth is they go above and beyond to fix some things including extended warranties and they don't on other things. I think they should extend the warranty on certain parts that are known to fail including the coolant leak on 4 cylinder ecoboosts. They did extend the warranty on APIMs a few years ago. However, when you buy a vehicle (or a TV or any product) it comes with a very specific limited warranty. It clearly says what is and isn't covered and for how long. You have the opportunity to purchase additional coverage if you want it. If you choose not to purchase said extended warranty and then complain when something happens you're really saying you want an unlimited warranty. But I bet you're not willing to pay extra up front for that unlimited warranty.

    New folders needed.

    None have left the factory as far as I know. OK to buy was delayed by parts shortages. The plant has been down 6 weeks already this year.

    In the states they don't usually release build and price for the new model year until they start arriving at dealers. They're more concerned about losing sales of 2020 models than losing a potential 2021 sale.

    It doesn’t get any smoother or torquier than my 3.5L Ecoboost V6. It does take more engineering to match the I6 balance though.

    AWD models continue production into 2024.
