2008 Ford Edge SUV Limited 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Review

I am 5'2" and have problems seeing over or around the outside mirrors. It seems as though they are too large for the vehicle. They create a horrible blind spot, which makes me very nervous while driving. I have tried raising the seat, but then it's difficult to reach the pedals and I crack my knee on the steering column when I get in and out of the vehicle. I ask my boyfriend to drive the car to get his feedback. He is 5'9" and agreed he thought they were larger than normal. He drives a F-150 truck. Prior to owning the Edge I had an Explorer and never had this problem.


Best Features

Gas mileage, Vista roof, heated seats


Worst Features

Smaller exterior mirrors. Creates hazardous blind spots while driving.

2008 Ford Edge SUV SE 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Review

We wanted a family vehichle that would be versitile and that's what we got. Comfortably has 2 car seats and we got an 8 foot Christmas tree inside. It's very comfy to drive and it did well in the recent snow storm


Best Features

Steering wheel audio controls, comfortable seats, good power, sharp exterior appearance, good mpgs for a truck this size. 25 mpg on a drive from NY to Chicago


Worst Features

The vents are very cheap and don't close. Also the dash isn't bright enough hard to see in low lighting. Give the truck real vents that can close and it's a winner

Review

After owning several foreign cars and SUV's, about 1.5 years ago I purchased a new Ford Explorer. I hated everything about the thing. I told myself over and over again I would never purchase another American-made vehicle again, I thought it was such a mistake. Then I came upon the Edge. It is unlike any Ford I have ever known. It is gorgeous inside, love the two tone! It's so fun to drive and handles so well! I feel really safe in it. I love the leather, it's not that cheap plasticy leather, and I love the stitching. Super roomy. I was really shocked at the price - very affordable. After seeing the success with the Edge, I hope Ford re-designs all of their vehicles. Thanks Ford!


Best Features

Leather, two-toned interior.


Worst Features

Gas mileage (feel for the size it should get better).

Review

We joined the "buy American" movement and purchased an Edge just after a good working over by the local Toyota dealer. Wow, I am impressed with the ease of maneuverability, the sound system, the sun roofs, and the seat's base-length- finally a seat that extends out far enough and doesn't cut off the circulation in one's legs. The second row seating is also unusually comfortable for this type car. Only had it a week, but so far, it's outstanding.


Best Features

The comfortable seats, the sound system. I'm sure I'll like the voice command too as soon as I learn how to use it.


Worst Features

It could be improved by slightly better gas mileage, but its the same mpg as the Toyota minivan.

Review

After looking at several models of CUV/SUV, including Pilot, Veracruz, CX9, Toyota Highlander, we decided that the 3rd row was the dealbreaker and went looking for something smaller. I am so glad we did. We decided on the Limited model with the Sync/Sirius/6 cd and the leather interior. I really like the two tone interior and the contrast stitching on the seats. We are just back from an 1800 mile trip and the Edge performed wonderfully. Very comfortable on the long ride and plenty of room. Gas mileage was not great, but driving 80+ MPH will do that. My first new car in 12 years and glad I'm on the Edge!


Best Features

Power adjusting seats (I'm short, he's tall), SYNC, back seat room


Worst Features

Larger gas tank--19 gallons
