    Adventures in Stupidity

    Fortunately I never had to drive while holding the door closed though! That was probably a bit of an adventure.

    I had these latches replaced on my Escape under recall as well. It covered millions of vehicles.
  3. Could this be the first ever BON selfie in the history of the site?
  4. I'm very excited about tonight's reveal! Especially given the fact it's happening live on multiple TV stations -- truly revolutionary! I know I'm jumping the gun here, but I can't think of which new or refreshed vehicle is going to be revealed next. It's been a busy year with Explorer/Aviator, Escape/Corsair, F-150, Bronco, Bronco Sport and more that I honestly can't think of what might be next, or when. Enjoy this one!

    Thinking of buying an 2020 Edge - help?

    That is a FANTASTIC looking combo!
  6. Absolutely the way to go. My "swagman" rack has that functionality and it's like, where's this tilt feature been all my life?

    That sounds like a pretty attractive color combo actually.

    I'd love to see one in person, but there's not one within a 3 hour drive of me right now haha.

    Dig the name! I'm in Idaho. Granted, I haven't seen the Titanium Elite seats in person, so I'm not sure if it would be too much red or not. To be sure, if a person doesn't like Red, they'd probably want to avoid the Elite package. Here's a snippet of that interior on the Elite package from Ford build and price:

    I should have been more clear about the CD slot. TobyTime nailed it. A CD player slot was present just below the touchscreen in the 2019s, but this silently went away for 2020. Just like TobyTime said, the under hood insulation is there to reduce engine noise, but the engine is so quiet anyway it's a moot point. I have about 1,600 miles on my odometer so far. TobyTime, I don't have the Titanium Elite Package with the 20" wheels. I was one day too late! My dealer sold one the previous day, and that's the one I was looking to purchase. I really like the red leather seats that the Titanium Elite Package includes as well. Otherwise mine has the 401A package with the 19" wheels. I do have a fairly rare Atlas Blue color and like it quite a bit so far. I Love your ST! I was close to pulling the trigger on those as well but they're a bit more than I wanted to spend.

    Some minor decontenting that I've noticed on the 2019s vs the 2020s: -The dual note horn went away for 2020 -The CD slot was deleted for 2020 -The storage compartment lid above the touchscreen was deleted on the 2020s -Insulation was present under the hood on the 2019s but is not there on the 2020. That said, these are fairly minor items. My 2020 is so far the favorite of all the vehicles I've owned. I love the solid, planted feel, comfortable interior and excellent LED headlights that come on the Titanium 401A package. The A/C is VERY cold and cools rapidly. I haven't had an opportunity to use the heat yet. For fuel economy, I've actually gotten BETTER mileage than my previous Escape, also with the 2.0L. I averaged 29.1 mpg on a recent road trip that included traversing 2 mountain passes! No issues yet, although a slight rattle has developed in the rear passenger door.
  12. I was in the same situation! There were some great deals on pre owned 2019 Titaniums in my area, but went with a 2020 when a local dealer offered me 10% above market value on my trade in (a 2014 Escape). That made the deal on a new one too sweet. Good luck and let us know what you end up with!
  13. I recently went with a 2020 Edge due to the increased powertrain refinement vs the Santa Fe, and much better MPG. The Edge was more smooth and quiet as well. Santa Fe interior design is more modern, and as you mentioned can be had for less money in many instances. However, 2019 Edges were some 20% off of MSRP in my area for the Black Friday sales event last Winter so they are heavily discounted from time to time.
  14. With regards to the updated styling being subtle vs not, how much as Subaru design evolved in the last decade? Seems few people give them a hard time about it. The Outback has changed very little since 2010, even though it's currently being towed as "all new."
  15. Sadly, no Edge/Nautilus is listed, which harkens back to the potential demise of these vehicles thread from several days back. Unless it falls into the yet to be announced category...
