Well if you get our EDGE.. plan on having the bearings replaced every year. something about this vehicle. I have spent a fortune but when you really like your car you drive it til it dies and the engine and everything is great on it. People look at it say that is not a 2007 it is now almost 9 years in Rochester NY no rust..
I love how my car handles on ice and snow.
I can drive just like normal and it takes care of the environmental factors.
It's roomy for my whole family, husband, two kids and a large dog.
My major complaint is RUST, on the fenders, the rims and the inner door panels.
I've reported it to Ford, hoping for some financial assistance for the repairs.
None as of yet, but she said if there is enough reports about this problem it will of course increase likelihood that Ford will offer some assistance.
So please REPORT RUST ISSUES TO FORD!
Thank you for your help in this matter.
We have had many issues with our Ford 2007 SEL.
Back hatch will not open. Only way to fix is disconnect battery and after a few cold starts it will start to work again. Breaks squeak extremely loud when you first use them. This weekend transmission went out and Ford dealer wants $4800 to replace it. I found multiple internet posts about this issues. Dealer said have never heard of ford edges having this issue.
Last fix a couple of months ago cost $2000+ and service man told us it was a known issue but no recall. My colorado engine died and Chevy dealer rebuilt it for no charge even without recall because it was known issue. Owned fords forever but longer ford fan.
Better cup holders in back. Middle seat folds down for cup holder but they are so wide most things can easily tip over.
Better design on back windows for less blind spots.
Headrest are annoying on how they hit your head.
Improve on gas mileage.
Not much better than my F150.
Improve transmission and computer.
Improve service when fixing known issues.
My 2007 Ford Edge just had a major engine failue with 91K miles. I was driving on a major roadway when I began to hear a tapping noise. Before I could take action the engine icon appeared in the dash. Whithin minutes the engine stopped and I was fortunate to have been able to pull off the road.
Bottom line: engine failure. Vehicle always properly maintained all fluid levels correct. Ford refuses to offer any assistance. New engine $7000 plus! This is after spending $1100 on a "common" transmission problem 6 months ago!
Gave my 08 Lincoln MKZ to the wife and got a CPO Edge for 16K with only 45K miles. It's been great so far. I think this thing rides better than the Lincoln. Previous owner had issues with the transmission (computer) but I've not noticed anything. Every fill up is around 19-20 MPG. Liking it so far and would recommend it to anyone in need of a mid size CUV.
Looks, ride, flexible interior storage.
The SE model is really basic, wish I had the SEL for more content. But for the price I can't complain.
