We recently purchased a 2011 Ford Edge, and five days after bringing it home, it is in the shop for about $1000 worth of repairs. Dumb luck had the door ajar sensor fail and stay on even though the door is fully closed. I had to get that fixed due to the battery draining that can accompany the problem. (It's a known potential problem with ford edge vehicles).
I had noticed that the brake pedal was a bit squishy and "off," but I didn't know if I was just hyper-aware due to a recent car accident I had with my previous Edge. The mechanic felt the braking issue too when he moved the car into the garage to investigate the door sensor and determined that the master brake cylinder was not working as it was supposed to. You had to push the brake pedal almost to the floor to get the car to stop entirely.
Due to the age of the vehicle, it came with no warranty and was an "as is" vehicle. I contacted the dealer about the issue, but they wanted me to bring the car to them to investigate it. I understand that, but it was a 40-minute drive on a major highway with brakes that weren't working as they should. No, thank you. The dealership should have discovered this problem before letting it off the lot, as this could have become a dangerous safety issue.
If you are looking for a new car or a more current used car, University Ford Durham is probably okay, but I would suggest that you look elsewhere if you are looking for an older used vehicle. Used Car Buyer Beware!
