Bought 2009 Ford Edge in Feb 2017. About three months after purchase I noticed rusting starting. It was every where, under the hood, inside doors, along bottom of tail gate and even the roof above the windshield. To add insult to injury, engine light came on, code was for misfire in cylinder 5. Replace COP and spark plugs. Still mis-firing. Folks if you have tons of money for repairs, by all means buy one of these, otherwise avoid them like the plague. Check for yourself, Google ford edge problems.
'09 Edge LTD, FWD, 20" wheels, 85k miles. Extremely good seat comfort and legroom (front & back) and smooth ride comfort -- both better than wife's Cadillac SRX. Great acceleration, braking and handling. Attractive exterior and interior styling. Gas mileage OK for SUV V6 -- 18 city, 24 highway @ 70-80mph. Problems: 1. Air conditioning completely failed, very expensive to repair; however it's the only repair item. 2. Dash lighting very poor at dusk and dawn, cannot be improved. 3. Steering wheel control buttons poorly engineered. 4. Rear camera and dash screen not available, must rely on bumper buzz alerts. Overall, very happy with vehicle and will replace with a new Edge before 100k miles.
We bought our Edge used with 38,000 miles on it in 2012. It now has 116,600 miles on it, has been cross-country 7 times, up and down mountains, through blinding rain storms, and it has never failed me yet. The only repair we've had to do so far was to replace the windshield washer jets ($20 DIY) and replace the cabin air filter. (When you think the AC isn't working, check the filter.) It's even pulled a fully-loaded 6 x 12 trailer more than 5000 miles with no problem. I won't be replacing it until it just won't run anymore.
Have had Our 09 EDGE SEL WITH VISTA ROOF for 2+ years and love most of it.
This car has been great except for the air conditioning. If the temp outside is over 75 degrees...FORGET ABOUT IT! AC STINKS ARSE. Have had it recharged and tested.Have cleaned filter screen behind glove box.Weak as water!IthinkFORDshould be ashamed of themselves they know this AC system sucks and should be responsible and RECALL all EDGES 2007-2010. Have heard they know it is a manufacture defect that causes some of the refrigerant to bypass the condenser! Everyone I know who has an EDGE says the same thing...The AC STINKS!!!!!!!!!! IF you are looking to buy one test drive it on a very hot day with salesman.
Not THE AC!!! Horrible!!
Touch screen Nav. with SYNC!!!
Auto fold rear seats.
Large feel to the interior...rear seats have lots of room.
Interior is cheap plastic on door area. Power window & lock buttons always get wet when door opens after rain or snow.
Head rests are annoying as well...not adjustable at all. This day and age and not adjustable?????
