This is the first American Made car I have owned in 25 years.
I actually intended to buy an Escape.
However with the incentives offered the Edge was only $2000.00 more.
was well worth it.
My wife has a 2011 Toyota Avalon that is one of the best riding vehicles I have ever ridden in.
This Edge is only slightly behind it.
The 3.5L had plenty of performance the handling is great.
The interior with power memory seats is great on long drives.
The SYNC is great once you learn it.
You may actually have to read the book to learn it.
A friend of mine trailered his Harley over 400 miles and raved at the handling
Interior fit and finsh,noise abatement
and keyless ignition
I have two very minor complaints.
The climate control system is very touchy.
I always seem to go to a manual setup.
I was hoping for a little better miles in the city.
Granted I do drive to work in stop and go traffic.
the Highway was 26+.
Bought my 2013 Edge Ltd in June of 2012. Just bumped over 25k. I've read all the worst reviews to see if anything sounds familiar. Thankfully no. Love my Edge. I don't disbelieve that people have bad experiences, after all humans put these cars together (for the most part). My experience is opposite. No issues with my Mid Life Crisis on Wheels. I found fault w/ software compatibility (WMA files) but no longer an issue. The MPG is off; I'm not an average driver. I love power and agility in this car. Sync & MyFord Touch work great, now that I understand it. Read the manual when all else failed. My recommendation is a "Buy". Read all Bad and Good reviews too.
Leather Interior, Sync w/ MyFord Touch, 20" Wheels, Power, Handling and Sony Audio Sound System. I love the Surround Sound Setting. Rocky Mountain Way never sounded so good. Sneak in a little Sirius Watercolors and you'll hear what Bass is all about. Panoramic Roof is sweet. Put my own custom wheels on it though. Wasn't crazy about spending $42k and having chrome plated plastic covers.
Every day I regret trading in my 2010 Edge (which I loved) for this horrid excuse of a car. The navigation system never works, the audio system functions are atrocious and trying to HANG UP from a telephone call? Mind boggling frustration. I'm tempted to take the car to Tijuana and leave the keys in the ignition. For as much as I loved my 2010 Edge is as much as I hate this car.
I have now put my first 1000 miles on my new 2013 limited with ecoboost.
Overall I am very happy with the nice ride and performance of the car. I do agree that the Ford entertainment system needs improvement. I did just upgrade the software and noticed a few improvements. The Sony Navigation system is just plain Pain full to use.
The 2.0 liter turbo is amazingly quick when you have to punch it. I have a friend with the 2013 V6 in his edge and the turbo seems a lot quicker.
Down sides I found were road noise from the trunk area. At 60 mph it is terrible. I had to line the truck under the tire with 1" marine sound proofing. Also the Michelin green tires are very noisy at highway speed.
1). Leg room, I am 6' 1"
2). Very nice two tone leather
3). 10 way power seats are very nice
4). Quick acceleration and quiet engine
5). Entertainment system is pretty good, I installed a external 500 gig USB disk drive in the lower console compartment with dozens of my favorite albums on it.
6). The power lift gate is great, just keep in mind it drives slow so don't bang your head.
1). Road noise coming from tire storage area is excessive
2). Michelin Green series tires are very loud
3). Sony navigation system is poor. They need to copy Garmin for ease of use.
4). Car need running lights, the LED strips don't light up the road at all.
2013 Limited with 301A package and other stuff. Purchased with 8 miles on it. Two days after purchase tire alert came on, but nothing was wrong with tires. Was in shop for 2 days to correct. With just over 600 miles, violent lunge while driving at around 40 mph, after which downshifting into first was hard with clunking. Service found metal in transmission. Attempted repair of valve body and issue still there. Edge is with Ford service for 12 days now and they still cannot fix it. Owned Edge for 51 days now, and 14 of those days (and counting) it has been with Ford service. Really thinking it was a mistake to purchse the Edge.
Really like the style but have serious concerns about reliability.
