    My 2010 Edge SE rides like a dream and has a lot to take on take-off. I love the decor, but the captain’s chairs can go back further. Audio system is excellent and the bigger rear window is wonderful. There are tons of legroom in the back seat and a folding rear seat is a large rear storage area. Separation from the Ford Taurus, this was the best coach I could ever buy!
