If you're a tall person and in the market for a crossover, give the Ford Edge a serious look. I'm 6'5 220# and have plenty of room in all directions. The driver seat has many settings for your comfort.
Now for the rest, I never thought I'd buy a Ford but I love this vehicle. The V6 really moves and looks great while doing it. The ride is smooth and quiet. The sound system is crisp and clear. I don't have a phone with Bluetooth but Sync works really good with my i-touch.
My only complaint so far is the transmission. It really doesn't like 2nd gear and reading other reviews it seems to be a known issue with the Edge.
Highly recommend this vehicle especially if you're tall.
All of it but if I have to narrow it down I would vote for comfort. I can't wait to put my bike in the back and leave the world behind. :)
Do something with the sluggishness of the transmission.
I truly love this car. I previously owned ten Volkswagens and two Subarus and found the Edge to be much more reliable and the build being of better quality. I can put the back seat down and the front seat down and put my kayak inside the vehicle too! The interior plastic is of good quality and does NOT rattle at all (which was a big issue I had with the Subaru's...that and the stupid muffler guard always being loose). I will stick with Ford in the future. The only thing I wish I did differently was I would've bought leather. The cloth upholstery is HORRIBLE and even when rain hits it the seats look like someone peed on them! Pay for Scotchguard or get the leather package!
Body is solid
Exterior design is pleasant
Interior plastic is well made
Drive is comfortable
Tires (MIchelin's) are excellent!
Even the lowest base package of vehicle provides a quality ride and excellent comfort.
Horrible horrible horrible cloth interior. Stainproofing needs be standard gang! Seriously!! Even when rain hits the seats, once it dries, it looks like a pee stain!
Need some work on the Bluetooth linking product since it picks up all the background noise and is a waste of time to use.
This is a very smooth quiet riding Crossover which I like better than the Explorer that I traded.
I get about 19 mph around town and about 25.5 mph on a trip with the standard 285 HP engine.
The seats have good support and it gives me plenty of power on the Western PA hills.
I have just driven this about 3,000 miles and my only criticism is that the automatic six speed transmission is rough on occasion.
Fortunately my SE does not have the busy MY Ford screen of which everyone complains.
Quiet smooth ride.
Handles like a sedan.
Good power even with the 285 HP engine.
My only criticism is that the shifting can be rough on occasion although does not occur all the time.
That deficiency has not in any way made me regret my buying this vehicle but improvement is needed.
