SYNC a Deal Spoiler
By vixvii on


2011 Ford Edge SE 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


My biggest gripe with the new 2011 Ford Edge has to do with the SYNC system. The claim of "Touch. Talk. Drive" is false and misleading. Voice recognition is really bad - it often has a problem with recognizing simple commands such as Yes or No. My SYNC experience has been so frustrating that I am actually trying to return the car. The Navigation system is also bad. Today I had an instruction to "Make a Legal U-Turn" - on a freeway! There is also insufficient warning prior to reaching turn-offs. Lastly, the Hazard Flasher button is super sensitive and poorly positioned. I often turn it on when reaching for the touch screen. This is a hazard!

Best Features

A pleasant and responsive driving experience.

Worst Features

Get rid of the SYNC system. Replace the hazard flasher switch with a mechanical switch. Change the front door inside handles - there is no grip when swinging the door open!
