Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain model year 2015-2016 Ford Edge vehicles manufactured February 9, 2015, to August 12, 2016. During dealer servicing, the affected vehicles may be have been updated with incorrect Antilock Brake System (ABS) and Electronic Stability Control (ESC) software. This software can cause the ESC system to lose engine torque control, and not provide any warning lamps to warn the driver if there was an ABS or ESC system malfunction. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 126, "Electronic Stability Control Systems" and number 135, "Light Vehicle Brake Systems."

After one full year driving the new ford edge with no complaints other than a constant water condensation problem in the rear led tailights usually after it rains or the vehicle goes thru a car wash. Ford has agreed to replace only the center taillight at this time . Other than the above described the car has been a pleasure to drive and handles well in all weather conditions and has been a reliable vehicle so far .
Excellent vehicle, lots of room!

Bought the Edge after looking at Escapes and wanted more space. We were coming from a Compass, so this is a huge upgrade. The SEL leather interior is very nice and the overall space in the vehicle is perfect for a growing family. The styling is great and the technology features are great. We bought the 3.5L V6 after driving the 2.0 EcoBoost because of its increased performance and towing capabilities. Overall it is a great vehicle and I definitely recommend for this price range.
Watch out for the throttlebody!!!!

I so loved this car until it died on my commute home. Luckily, I was only on a 2 lane highway and not the major Atlanta highway I had just exited from. 13,000 miles and it just lost power. I thought I had gotten some bad gas as we were in the middle of gas shortages in Georgia. Called road side assistance and had to have it towed back to the dealership. The next morning the service department called me first thing and the gentlemen I spoke with seemed to not think it was bad gas - looking back now I am pretty convinced he knew EXACTLY what the problem was due to the propensity of fords to have this issue. I was later told by my salesman that there was a recall with this issue. I looked this up and there are no recalls on this car at all. Ford needs to own up to this issue. Except for this very major break-down, I had been very pleased with this car. It does drive very nicely and while not perfect, Sync does pretty much what I tell it to do. I do need to give a shout- out to Akins Ford in Winder, Georgia because they do bend over backwards to make things right. Now Ford needs to do what is right.

We purchased this 2015 Ford Sport Edge then end of last year. We have always been loyal Ford owners - this vehicle will make it the LAST FORD we ever buy. The new styling is great - but the cost for the options within the vehicle are terrible. The vehicle's turn radius is the worst SUV turn radius we have ever seen. The on-screen technology is the worse of any out there, it will not respond to my voice at all and it takes several screens to get through to do one simple item on any other vehicle with on-screen technology. Comfort level of the front seats takes a long time to set up the correct position for anyone to be comfortable - and if you are tall, you will never find a comfortable adjustment to the seat and driving distances is painful. When you start up this vehicle - there is a metal on metal grinding sound (not good), we have taken this vehicle in numberous times to the dealership and their response is "that's the way they make this vehicle." Something is grinding metal on metal and that is not good - something is wrong and they will not look into it further and/or fix it. POOR follow through and service by both the dealership & Ford Motor Company (whom we notified of the problem also). For the price - this SUV should work right, the technology should work properly & be easy to use (like other comparable and even less comparable SUV/vehicles). The turn radius should be much better - our full sized RAM truck can turn tighter than this small SUV. The metal on metal grinding - is a serious problem and no one will inspect it to fix that problem. EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED in this vehicle and Ford Motor Company. Price is too high for such problems on a new SUV and the poor service/follow through from the dealership/Ford Motor Company - is in no means "user friendly." My husband HATES this vehicle and he has always had Fords and purchased Ford trucks/vehicles for his company...that no longer will be the case. There are MUCH BETTER options for a SUV out there at this price - please look into other options, you will be much more satisfied. Shame on you Ford for not standing my a quality product and customer service, major let down.

I set out to buy a 2016 Titanium model but through the process and researching information decided to buy a 2015 Sport model. There were only very minor changes from 2015 to 2016 and I saved a TON of money and was able to get a fully loaded model. My primary goal was safety features and I got lots of them! See the 402A package for details. It has been great so far except gas mileage being low but I feel safe, I feel the power of the ecoboost, I feel comfortable, and I feel I made a great choice!

We struggled a few days in deciding on the 4 vs v6. Within a few months it will be one year in having chosen the 4 cyl. and we are very pleased with the performance. It is still difficult to believe how torquey the 4 responds, and how effortless it carries the weight of a vehicle this size. The by-monthly drives from Michigan to Chicago in midwest seasonal weather changes is NO PROBLEM. If there is one major complaint, it's how Ford has used such a thin layer of exterior paint. It is unnecessary in my view that a vehicle intending to compete in head to head world class quality, is so easily chipped. (The front clip area) From the little I know of insects, (which help in paint stain/chipping) they are NOT on the endangered list as yet, so one would think a Company as intelligent as Ford would factor this in their formula. Or perhaps they have, and this is the result? All in all, and great American choice.
Falls short of expectations, but not a bad choice

This is our second Edge, replacing a darn near perfect 2013 Limited model. Our Titanium AWD is equipped with the 3.5 V6. Seems less powerful than the 2013 model and the fuel economy is about 5 mpg less than the EPA ratings. Despite having two cameras and multiple sonar sensors that seem to have a mind of their own, this car is difficult to park because of the poor outward visibility (our vehicle ha the "self-parking" feature, but it's not something we use when parking in a drive-in slot at the mall). The front seats are a vast improvement in comfort and material quality over the model it replaced; however, the bottom seat cushions are still too short and do not adjust far enough with regards to tilting. Tilt steering wheel also is lacking in enough up & down movement. Despite all the complaints about how hard the electronics are to use, we find little or no issues with the nav, Hvac & radio controls. Rear seat room is spacious, but the inflating rear seat belts are a bear to use. Paint finish is impressive. Auto-dimming headlights are too easily fooled by other light sources and often stay on dim even when you are on a country road all by yourself. Heated & cooled seats work better than most others we've experienced and the heated steering wheel is terrific. Standard wheels on the Titanium are easier to keep looking good than the chrome-clad alloys that were on the 2013. Like the sonar warning parking aids, the rain-sensing wipers are a complete conundrum, they do whatever they want, whenever they want, even parking themselves during a steady rainfall. The rear window is impossible to keep clean, even in dry weather; a terribly designed rear spoiler actually traps dirt on the glass. Now let's talk about the massive glass sunroof; the rattling & creaking sound is unbearable and apparently has no permanent fix. Silicon spray on the rubber gasket it sits on will eliminate the noise...until you open & close it once! I coated the gasket with silicone last fall and haven't opened the glass since...now silent. Unless you are okay with keeping it permanently closed, save $1500 and don't buy it. The other major, "we can't fix it" issue is the smell that the catalytic convertors emit when the car is driven under a full load on a long grade; the odor finds its way into the interior of the vehicle and is annoying to say the least. Previous models have a TSB issued and a kit available to alleviate this issue, but so far, not the 2015 model. One last complaint; the catch-all bottoms on the side doors. The design will hold about a quarter inch of sand, mud, crud, all along the bottom surface of the door, and washing the car necessitates opening each door and spraying the bottom edge to remove the silt. Over-all, this vehicle has been disappointing, although not thoroughly unpleasurable to drive. Other mid-sized cross-overs that we have bought & owned new prior to switching to Fords include the Volvo XC-70, Cadillac XRS (junk), Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited (also junk) and Mercedes GLK-350. This Edge is far from perfect, but we would at least consider buying one more version before we gave up on the either the model or the brand.

Waited six or seven months to provide the review. First some thoughts: 1. Opt for the power liftgate. The liftgate is heavy. 2. This is a big car - bigger than it looks. Think about this and be prepared in your garage and when parking. This is our second Edge - we compared Highlander, Grand Cherokee, Audi Q3 & 5, Acura and a few other models. The Edge is premium priced, but we used TruCar as the starting point and then let the dealers fight among themselves so we think we got a good deal. Because of having other Ford products in the past, we researched the seats. We have learned that -- at least for the CUV/SUV -- you always avoid cloth seats if you want comfort and support. The light leather is bad for picking up dye from blue jeans, so we have instructed the dealership to clean them everytime we go in for service -- under warranty. We have had no rattles or squeaks - the only issue is that on an intermittent basis the brakes want to squeak - I can hear the echo when we are in a drive through. Audio is OK - I realize that for x thousand more we could have had far better audio, but we decided to set and hold to a budget and I'm OK with it. (Frustrating that I cannot insert paragraphs in this review - sorry about that - I know it makes it hard to read). Car drives well and is easily quick enough to go on the freeway - our old Edge had the V-6 - this one has the I-4 turbo and it's OK. We got the towing package and have pulled a lightweight trailer and more importantly - the bike rack!!! Car handles very well -- sometimes a little hard to park because it's hard to tell where the front end is. Backup camera is nicely done and evidently is a step above other cameras -- at least per our friends. We have the old MyFordTouch - I have NEVER hand any issues with this system - don't know why Consumer Reports has hated it so bad because it's pretty logical to me. If you have not owned a Ford product lately, be aware there is a large expanse of glass in front of you - but once you get used to that it makes the car feel a little more open. SEL version should have had memory seat for driver, not just power - also should have had power seat for passenger. Rear air vent into passenger compartment works well - also rear seats have some recline to them. When rear seats are folded down, they are NOT completely flat - just FYI. My mileage is good - we are not leadfoots, nor are we featherfoots - it did take a little while for the mileage to kick in - but we average about 26 around town and about 32 on the freeway at about 70 MPH. No rattles no squeaks -- overall I think Ford really did a nice job - and especially with the design. Yes, I would definitely purchase this car again.

The only advantage for me was visibility - good ahead and good to the sides and rear. This is a big vehicle which I find sluggish and it handles on the road like a commercial van. The controls are not intuitive - I found the radio hard to operate (and annoying when it decides to do its own thing), the GPS hard to use, the heater / air con very hard to use. The car is full of features and has lost sight of what a vehicle is about: driving. The manual says a lot: 450 pages.

Spent a week driving my sisters Lexus. I was very surprised at how mediocre the car drives. It looks nice, has an OK interior, but rides like a bucking bronco. Truly, awful to ride in. The soft suspension along with poor suspension control resulted in a bouncy, rocky ride. My elderly mother, who usesly love to go for a drive did not like riding in the Lexus. A week later a friend lent me his 2015 Edge for a long weekend drive into the mountains. The car was comfortable, handled well and had a very controlled ride. The Ford was way more comfortable than the Lexus and in many ways felt more up market. Nice going Ford.

Just bought a 2015 Edge SE that now has 2,000 miles. So far, several things have happened: 1. Tire Pressure Sensor Fault keeps going on and off. 2. Seems my gas gauge must be related to Houdini. I parked the Edge with half a tank and the next morning, a quarter tank had disappeared! (The service guy at the local Ford dealer said it was possible someone had stolen gas. No. The vehicle is kept in the garage 95% of the time. 3. Mysterious rattle in the front right passenger side. Motor Trend magazine said the cabin was "littered with rattles." Seems Ford thinks rattles are a sign of quality. 4. Not getting the advertised gas mileage. This maybe due to break in period. I hope it is. A vehicle should not rattle with just 2,000 miles on it. And the vehicle has only been on pavement, not off road. If Ford does not fix this, then this will be my only Ford and will urge everyone I know NOT TO BUY a Ford.

2015 Ford Edge is a great looking car; but looks can be deceiving. If you want cloth seats you can not buy the Titanium upgrade (which only has leather; but boasts variable drivers' seat controls). So opt for cloth which I did with the base model and the drivers' seat has little or no control for comfort adjustments. The seating is rock hard and offers very little to make it accommodating or enjoyable. The tiny screen that displays the rear view camera image is a waste... so small you need glasses to use it with any accuracy. I don't both using that image generated by the otherwise clever rear-view camera. I can't get better than 23.9 mpg after 6,000 miles and I am a conservative driver with no lead foot by any means. I like the size of the Edge when compared to the smaller Escape or larger Explorer. I am leasing and have about 2 plus years to go on this. My thoughts at this point are to look outside the Ford or Lincoln family for next lease to see if I can find an SUV/Crossover with much better front seat comfort.

*New Issue - A couple months ago (around 6,500 miles), our brand new Ford Edge suddenly decelerated from 50 mph to 5 mph leaving us sitting alongside the road. We were towed to the dealership. Throttle body was replaced. In the weeks before this occurred, I noticed changes in the car's acceleration, mainly between 40-60mph (you'd really have to tromp on the accelerator and raise the rpm's to get it to speed up). We thought it was the transmission and took it to the dealership, who said they could find nothing wrong. Currently, the car behaves like an older car with a fuel pump issue when it comes to accelerating - it's sluggish, feels like it has "drag," and like you need to really press on the accelerator to expel gunk from it... that's the best analogy of how it drives these days. I had read of a recent recall of approximately 88,000 Ford vehicles for fuel pump issues and was surprised our vehicle is not included. *Updated 10/7/16 - Windows still fogging up excessively, leaving a filmy residue inside. Scheduled to go to the dealership next week. *Updated 4/7/16 - Scroll Down We purchased a new 2015 Ford Edge SEL (3.5 L Cyclone V6 Series 4.0) on 2/2/2016 in Kenosha, WI. We noticed the windows fogging SEVERELY after taking it through a car wash, and then anytime it would rain (to the point the windows would remain fogged even with the defrosters on high). Also noticed water droplets in the tail lights. Took it to the dealership on 3/25/16 and learned it is LEAKING inside the interior of the vehicle! As of yet, our dealership is unable to diagnose the exact source of the leak. We have since learned that there is a LEAK PROBLEM WITH THE 2015 FORD EDGE AND DEALERSHIPS WERE INSTRUCTED NOT TO SELL IT. In researching this vehicle, this issue might escape the attention of consumers because it is not officially labeled a "recall." In hopes of a resolution, we spoke with the Ford Regional Customer Service Manager (866-631-3788) who was adamant that Ford WILL NOT buy back from us this structurally defective vehicle. They insist our VIN# is not included in the leak issue - although the saturated interior of our vehicle seems to suggest otherwise. If we attempt to sell this vehicle in the future, WE will have to disclose to potential buyers the very same defect that Ford concealed from us - and incur a financial loss. After all, who would pay full market price for a vehicle knowing it leaks inside? This situation puts us in a bind in many ways. To date, we've made only 1 car payment to our bank. Will this vehicle even last for 59 more payments? Besides the financial repercussions, there's health and safety concerns. Our son has severe asthma and allergies, including a documented allergy to mold. How long was this leaky vehicle subjected to the elements in a dealership lot before we purchased it? And, what's lurking inside the moist carpeting and overhead material, the cracks and crevices? We expressed these valid concerns to Ford, as well as to the dealership, to no avail. They refuse to buy back their defective new vehicle, insisting their only obligation is to repair it and "dry it out" by running the vehicle's heater. We can only conclude that the well-being of children doesn't rank high on Ford's list of priorities. In exchange for buying back their defective vehicle, we've even proposed buying another Ford - a 2016 Ford Edge, or even a Ford Explorer (assuming no defects). As long time GM owners and first time Ford owners, we were excited about our new relationship. It appears that Ford does not reciprocate that zeal in their customer service, however. It ceases the moment the customer signs on the dotted line. UPDATE: We stopped by the dealership on 4/2/16 for an update. Last we'd heard our vehicle was taken to a glass shop and the windshield resealed, which failed to stop the leaking. Next, it was taken to a body shop where a new windshield was recommended, and then ordered. To our horror, on 4/2/16, we stopped by the dealership and found our new vehicle - leaks and all - sitting uncovered, in the pouring down rain and sleet, in the dealership lot - where it has been for days awaiting arrival of the new windshield. In the very least, they could have covered it with a tarp. To be continued.... UPDATE (4/7/16): Update: A "pin-hole size leak in the body caulk of the upper right passenger window" was discovered and filled. A glass company came again, squirted window cleaner and blew air from inside the vehicle. The leak revealed itself on the outside where the glass cleaner started bubbling. Dealership said water was in the carpet and flooring, and on some wiring, but that the vehicle subsequently passed the leak test and water should no longer enter the interior. Ford also is replacing the right and middle tail lights. Hoping no further water damage surfaces in the future from this leak. Our vehicle should be done Friday, April 8th!

I and several others that have rode with me find the front seats very uncomfortable. It actually feels like your sitting in a bucket. The power seat doesn't have enough lower adjustment on the fron portion of the seat so a lot of weight is under your legs and thighs with the hard seating bolsters on the side. The other major complaint I have is that the door seals don't seal well enough and allows dirt sand snow etc to be thrown up under them...really shoddy workmanship. I have to believe Edmunds and others must get incentives to write the rave reviews they have given this car. Also with cheap gas its no big deal but my I-4 Turbo has good power but will not get even close to what is posted on estimate. Then if you figure the mileage longhand you will find its even worse than what the trip computer says. The 28 mpg posted must be going down hill with a tail wind. Count on 21-23 real world running 70-75 mph

I drove a 2007 Ford Edge until I purchased my 2015 Ford Edge. Overall both have been great cars as far as fuel efficiency and smooth ride, however, I do have complaints about each. The 07 had very little range of motion for the AC vents, which could not be completely closed off and could not be directed off the passenger seat which meant traveling with my husband I had to keep a heavy blanket in the front seat as he likes the AC cold. The seats were not comfortable, especially the middle back seat; VERY hard. I couldn't wait to get my new Ford Edge and immediately, on the test drive, discovered that the seats were far more comfortable than the 07 and the AC vents had full range and could be closed off completely. Thank you Ford! Unfortunately for everything Ford fixed, I discovered other nuisance problems: 1)the storage in the door, where I keep my water bottle - because of the contoured design of the door handle, I cannot easily remove the water bottle without bumping into the contoured handle, causing the bottle to slip from my hands an spill on the floor, and I am a small person, with small hands; 2)the convenient tray in front of the gear stick in the 07, which was the perfect place for me to place items while driving to work (about 4 x 6 or so)- cell phone, vitamin container, office keys, is no longer there so NO place to set my stuff; 3) the center console and cup holders are now so far back that for a shorter person like me, I cannot grab a cup from the cupholder or open the console with my right hand as it is all set too far back. I have to reach over with my left hand while driving to pick anything up from the cupholders. En the 07 the cupholder was beside the gear stick, not behind it and the armrest was in a comfortable proximity to the seat; 4) the door handle, 07 design was a closed handle so if I wanted to drop a small item - paperclip, Tylenol, whatever, for ease in grabbing quickly - is open now so NO tiny, convenient little door storage. I realize all these may seem petty, but they made enough difference in my daily travel routine that I will NOT be purchasing another Ford Edge not do I plan to keep this one for any length of time!
I love my 2015 Edge AWD

I have owned this vehicle for 9 months. First off, I love how this SUV drives like a car and handles very well. The acceleration of the 4-cylinder turbo is superb here at high elevation in Colorado, whereas a lot of other 4-cylinder vehicles are lacking in power. I purchased the SEL with leather and both power driver and passenger seats, automatic liftgate (which I love), upgraded sound system etc. The rear legroom is plentiful and it's awesome that the rear seat reclines (Although, I have small children and am not able to recline it yet). The AWD is great; my vehicle handles way better in the snow than my Jeep that I traded in. Around town I average about 25 mpg per tank. I recently went on a 3000 mile road trip to Georgia and averaged around 27-28 mpg sometimes. The seats were comfortable on the trip up to about 10 hours of driving in one day. The interior is very quiet and the vehicle has a smooth ride. The safety of the vehicle is top notch, which I can attest to being involved in a 9 vehicle accident on the interstate a couple months ago. An SUV pushed a pickup truck into the back of my Edge. It felt like a hard impact but I only had a tiny dent on the plastic rear bumper cover which people don't even notice (The pickup's bumper was hanging off). The only con I had was shortly after I purchased the vehicle and a rattling noise was coming from the driver's side door speaker. It seems like over time it has resolved itself. Overall, the new Ford Edge is a pleasure to drive.

The EDGE Sport has lots of bells and whistles including Front/Rear climate controlled seats and terrific safety features (blind spot, peripheral collision warnings, front/rear cameras, parking assist). Surprisingly excellent, effortless and smooth acceleration from a 4cyl. Sleek body style, keyless entry, remote start and comfort's a plus. Ford's SYNC system is a little daunting to setup, because of the 400K possible voice commands controlling entertainment, climate, comm, and nav systems. The spectacular panoramic moon roof stretches the length of the vehicle. Roomy lighted cargo area with rear seats up (including electric rear seat controls accessible near the hatch) and handsfree lift gate that sounds a safety alarm when opening and closing. It would be nice to have a handstrap on the gate for manual operation and a bumper step, otherwise, it's solid. Lots of USB and accessory ports! The only downside is Ford's 60K warranty. Doesn't cover all electrical. However, I found that the extended coverage was price negotiable. Overall a pretty good value for the $42K price (incl TTL).
Great car with a surprisingly "peppy" engine.

I had my Ford Edge Edge towed to the local Ford dealership here in Idaho Falls, ID on November 23rd. It is now December 24th and it is sitting at the dealership under a couple feet of snow. I have just made my car payment for my reliable Ford vehicle. Two modules went out that control the remote entry and the push button ignition. I was stranded in the middle of winter with no heat and had to call for a tow. The dealership has been horrible with communication. I was sent to my regional customer service representative who said he would work on getting the part here faster. I was told the part would be here on December 17th. I finally called that evening to find out that the weather has slowed the shipping and it should be in on the 18th. Apparently the mule they are using walks very slow cause the shipment came in last night. It is now almost 11:09 am in Idaho and they still have not located the part. No vehicle for the weekend! Repairs made this year on my Ford Edge: -Main system that runs my climate and radio had to be replaced. -Rails on panoramic roof needed replacement. -Alarm stopped working on automatic tailgate stopped working. -Brake Booster tore. Known problem. -PTU seal leaking and stinks up car. Known problem -Two modules went out on remote entry and ignition. This caused my battery to fry and needed replacement. ****Please read the car complaints forum's before you buy a Ford Edge***** I would not recommend this vehicle to a friend or family member!
Better than any Toyota I have owned
The Edge is absolutely awesome! I have owned three Toyotas (Sienna, Rav4, and Camry). After one month ownership of my Toyotas, they were just cars. The Edge impresses me more every day. I just love the Edge. It is easy to get in and out. The Edge handles great and you always feel in control. The workmanship is first class. On another note, my sons wanted me to buy a BMW X3 or X5. I am so happy I bought the Edge instead of either of those!

I have had Ford Edge Sport for the past 2 months. These words come to my mind: Solid, Fun, Sporty and a delight to drive. Blind spot monitoring, Lane Departure Warning and gentle nudge back to the lane, excellent blue tooth are all technological pluses. Steering, handling are top class. Very quiet inside, very little road noise. Quite roomy especially the second row and adequate cargo. Overall, quite impressive.
Amazed at the change Ford Made to this Vehicle
Redesigned for the Gen 2 the 2015 is really fun to drive. I was less then impressed with the previous version of the Edge, so I was skeptical taking a test drive. Wow they changed this vehicle, comfortable, design and what they used. Some thing I would have made standard is every model should have the LED rear red Light Bar, Power mirrors with integrated blind spot mirrors , also every version have intelligent access with push button start, I have this partially I have push button start and the rear gate is intelligent access but not the doors. Every model should also include the front and rear parking sensors. Other then that everything else could be optional. 2.0 EcoBoost AWD in Magnetic, black interior, Rear inflatable Seatbelts Pros: Comfortable Amazingly a lot of power Low road noise very nice controls Cons: Everything I mentioned that should be be standard.
2.7L Twin Turbo V6 has serious ooomph

Mechanical: 1) The 2.7L twin turbo V6 puts out some serious power at 315 HP and 350 FT LBS torque. The technology in the engine is shared with Fords Powerstroke Diesel in that the engine block is made from compacted graphite iron. It is quiet as a sewing machine but does make some nice sounds when you put the go-pedal down. 2) Two small turbochargers vs. one large one equate to virtually undetectable turbo lag. This is a very good thing. 3) The Sport has a very dialed in suspension for a stock vehicle. In all honesty this crossover thinks it is a sports car. Interior: 1) The suede/leather in our Sport is better quality than expected. Seats are very comfortable and interior is mostly devoid of the cheap plastic feel I abhor in many vehicles (think GM). Fit/Finish: 1) Our Edge is the black metallic. It looks great and I have gone over the car with a fine tooth comb and everything is spot on. I am a Toyota guy (Edge is my girlfriends driver) and do not suffer manufacturers that produce poor fit and finish. I am impressed with the Edge. Value/Competitors: 1) Thus far the Edge Sport has been worth every dime of its cost. My girlfriend originally wanted to look at the Nissan Murano and I started looking at other crossovers for her to consider as the Nissan CVT transmission has a far less than stellar reliability rating and resale value leaves a lot to be desired. Both of us agreed that the Edge Sport is better looking, way better performing and overall a better value than the competition. No GM vehicles were considered, several other manufacturers were. Summary: 2500 miles on the vehicle and thus far 100% happy.

have had 4 weeks. It is a Titanium AWD with 3.5 V6 .Carpet material and mats poor quality, lint sticks to surface and vacuum struggles to extract. Trunk light location poor. Put in 1 bag and light is hidden. Navigation control cumbersome. Visibility good except when entering tight space, hood design is high obscuring front side view. The trunk cargo cover design is poor. Does not sit high enough to stack 2 pieces of luggage. Have to remove cover to get more luggage in trunk. Not very helpful when travelling and you need to park in a lot for a break. Instrument display OK. Tach display is very poor. Indicator data points hide actual RPM display. Display is too small. sits right next to fuel gauge and requires deliberate focus to see, cant just glance for view of RPM I exhaust tailpipe is bent and dealer cant fix. Dealer has not suggested how it will be fixed. Too early to judge gas mileage. So far around 22 overall for distance driving, 17 in city. Performance not bad. Still going easy on acceleration but not a zippy as our 2012 Santa Fe. Love new adaptive cruise control, waited 4 months to get this feature. Ride and comfort excellent. Panoramic sun roof is very nice at this time of year. Car does feel big when driving in tight spaces. Operating door locks is still confusing, touch control isn't consistent in operation. Touchless trunk opening also vague. We have the tow hitch so swinging leg has to be done with caution or your shin is in danger. Overall we are pleased with our purchase so far. UPDATED 6/4/2016. We have added around 8000 miles. The driving and comfort are still excellent. MPG has maintained 22/24 and better dependent on load and speeds, had some long days cruising at 80 mph and still got 21+ mpg. Also had quite a load on board, 2 occupants and 300-400 lbs of luggage and gifts. The engine has loosened up and is still a quiet cruiser, the transmission likes to drop a couple of gears when climbing mountains which can get noisy, I have found dropping the cruise 5 mph eases the stress as it will change up a gear. I have found that there is a second Tach' which displays automatically when selecting the S mode for the transmission, it is also accessed when going through the menu for instrument display. The touchless tailgate is easier to use with some practice, nice feature. The adaptive cruise control is "SIMPLY Marvelous ", wont buy a car without it from now on. On 600 mile sections of our journey I hardly used the gas pedal, and it works down to 25 mph, great when the speed limit in small towns drops to 25 and then quickly goes back to 75. Just used the cruise to adjust, very easy on the back and legs. Have gotten used to the Navigation, a bit quirky but the voice control works quite well and the search quality has been very good at finding Seattle's Finest. Had the first oil change while in ND, nice and quick. So far no problems, very happy with our purchase.

I just leased my 2015 SEL in October. I love the way it drives and handles on the road. However; it has been in the shop twice with electrical issues in a month. The first time was when I tried to turn on the heat and no air came out. It turned out being a faulty pin according to the dealer. The next time was an electrical issue that prevented the car from starting and just about every warning light came on in the process. I'm beginning to question the reliability of this model. I traded in my 2013 Focus for the Edge, thinking that I was getting a better made vehicle , as I had electrical problems with the Focus, as well. To add insult to injury, the dealer (Lester Glenn) has a ridiculous loaner car program where there is a two week wait and only about 3 vehicles, according to the service manger. Are you kidding? Perhaps if there is that much volume in the service department, the dealer should invest in more loaner cars. Also, they should give priority to customers who purchase vehicles at the dealer. FORD= Fix Or Repair Daily!
Whaaaat? This is a Ford??
This is one of the best prices vehicles for all its options. I literally was able to get every option I could think of (outside a heated steering wheel) and most car brands didn't even OFFER all these options or wanted $10k more for all of them. I exceptionally happy with the mpg, handling, and technology. They are truly putting Out their best effort and my consumer confidence is rapidly climbing. Go Ford!
Powerful Titanium 2L
We bought our Edge 4 weeks ago and we have enjoyed the car immensely. Today I drove our Edge up to Big Bear Mountain which is 30 miles and an elevation climb from 1500 feet to 7200 feet. I was concerned about the power of the turbo 2L engine, but I am happy to report that our Edge powered up the mountain equal our better than my V6 Acura TL. We have been able to get 30+MPG on the freeway and average about 24 MPG combined. Love the remote engine start this evening with the outside temperature at 20°F. Looking forward to our next trip in 2 weeks on Pacific Coast Highway between Carmel and Morro Bay. We will update on the car after that trip.
Really like this vehicle
We bought the SE and there are two things that I don't care for. If you leave the fob in the Edge and lock the doors with the lock on the door they will lock, the same as locking the keys in your old car. With the electronics they should be able to prevent this or give a warning when the fob is left in the Edge. My Edge has no keypad entry. They give you a key but that is probably at home. I do not have the auto stop/start feature. Wish that I had gotten the auto start/stop feature.
Get the Drivers Assistance Package
Waited from May order until September build and October delivery in order to obtain Drivers Assistance package on a Titanium Edge with 3.5 V-6. After a five hundred mile freeway trip, I am very glad I did. It is a wonderful workload reducer and safety feature. Really a fine enhancement to a comfortable driving experience. Also like the blind spot alert and the drivers wheel alert shudder when straying out of lane. Got 25.1 mpg on the freeway and looks like it will be about 19-20 overall. The car is a comfortable five star that was over my initial budget, but glad I went for it. We have aged up and now need safety and comfort more than value.

So I am a 24 year old and have had my 2015 Ford Edge titanium with the 2.0 eco boost 4cyl in the guards green color for a bit over a month. So far, very satisfied with the car. The color is awesome, almost like a Greyish-green. Great ride height, good visibility of the road. The 4 cyl, in my opinion is enough power for the car. I would imagine the 6 cyl version being terrible on gas mileage. I drive mainly city, stop and go traffic in Brooklyn and I am averaging 16.2mpg for approx 1200 miles I have already put on the car. Interior is extremely comfortable. A lot of technology!!! Bluetooth is very easy to use and responsive. Touch screen display is excellent as well. I have ambient lighting in the vehicle as well which I love. Another feature I find my self using is the foot activated rear lift gate. Very useful believe it or not. Also the auto start fuction from the key fob is excellent. Use it almost every day, I anticipate using it daily once the winter hits the north eastOverall I am very satisfied with the vehicle and deffinetly recommend it to anyone looking for a luxury SUV

I was originally going to buy a Taurus SHO but decided the Edge Sport would be more practical for my specific needs. I have owned many cars over the years and put a lot of miles on some pretty bad roads in all types of weather, unfortunately I can't comment on the Edge's winter performance yet. What I can tell you is that this crossover is absolutely great on the highway and very pleasant to drive in an urban environment. It's quite, and soaks up bumps and irregularities in uneven road surfaces like a big luxury car. What it doesn't do is have a ton of body roll or wobbly feeling like a lot of vehicles in this segment. I suspect this is due to the stiffer springs and bigger anti sway bars on the sport model. Cargo storage and access is very good, the stereo is better than average, the navigation system is pretty straight forward and loads fast, visibility is also good, however I personally find the inability to turn the lane departure system completely off rather annoying as I don't always use turn signals so that little shudder it sends through the steering column when I'm passing is a bit distracting. Yes, it has bunch of bells and whistles but the real reason to buy this thing is the engine. The 2.7 v6 twin turbo is absolutely incredible. The power is very linear and triple digits happen in the blink of an eye. The thing is you never realize how fast your accelerating until you look at the speedometer or the line of cars in the rear view mirror and it does it so smoothly and quite. It's not a Corvette or Porsche 911 but I can assure you an X5 or Lexus is going to be embarrassed if they challenge you on the 4 lane. My point is to find the level of technology and performance you find under the hood of this thing you would have to spend a lot more and it will be from Europe.

First I have a 2015 SEL 3.5L (which is not listed) I traded my 2013 for the 2015. The ride felt better, looked better and handled better. 2 weeks after I bought it I noticed after it rained, there was moisture in the rear center reflector and tail lamp lenses. It went away a fter a couple days. I washed it in a touchless car wash and the moisture reappeared. Willowbrook Ford agreed that there was an issue, they took pictures and emailed them to Ford. Ford authorized replacing the rear lamps and center reflector. After Willowbrook Ford repaired my Edge they washed it and I picked it up. When I got home I noticed moisture in rear tail lamp lenses again. I will update this review... UPDATE; 5/5/16 After taking pictures multiple times and having Willowbrook Ford take them twice, Ford has authorized the rear lights to be replaced again. This time they have a TSB indicating a torque procedure. In the last month the TPMS light has come on for the right rear tire. The display read --- after the tires were rotated. It still occurred at the right front now. Ford replaced both right side sensors. Otherwise the vehicle has performed well and is very comfortable. Towing (2300 lb boat) with the Edge is good and MPG are 13.8, towing at 70mph.

Traded in our 2012 ford escape for the new 2015 edge. We actually own a SEL 6 cyl. (But the review wouldn't give me the option). It's a responsive engine, Doesn't feel sluggish. We still aren't getting great MPG. But I suppose that'll come the more we break it in. Has a few blind spots, but that's to be expected with any vehicle... it's still easy to maneuver. Easy to see out of. I test drove the hyundai santa fe sport and it doesn't even come close to the edge! The edge feels more sturdy. I feel it'll last a long while! We have a 4 yr old and it's easy for her to get in and out of the vehicle, she has plenty of room in the back and she loves the cup holders that come down from the back middle seat. We unfortunately haven't taken it on a long drive that's over 2 hrs. But so far the front seats seem comfortable for both me and my husband. We are loving it! Love the close tailgate button.. very handy for me only being 5'3. My only concern is the material they used around the cupholders. It seems to scratch very easily. But other than that, we are very happy with our purchase and plan to keep it for years!!
2015 Edge is a wow
we now have 23,000 on our 2015 edge SEL AWD The car continues to perform as if it is a luxury car Rides smoothly even on rough roads, cruises like a Lexus on highways Not a squeak or rattle no problems only oil changes Mileage in mixed driving now is 26.6 mpg--not bad at all our favorite car in our 25 year car buying experience

The Edge is a comfortable, quiet car with good pickup and a smooth ride. I like the technology, it was easy for me to learn. I'm still getting use to the backup camera, this is a great feature but does take some getting use to. So over all I like the car and I am looking forward to many years of service form it.

So I traded in a Focus Titanium for an Edge SEL with all of the extra options. I'll start off by saying I absolutely love the look, the ride quality is great, and the 2.0 has great power. I'll start out listing the pros; the hands free lift gate is a really nice feature to have and my wife loves the panoramic sun roof. The Edge drives really well and the base EcoBoost motor has plenty of pickup. The leather inside feels high quality and my wife and I have I issues with the seats as some other owners were saying. Now for some of the cons; the Edge has some noises inside. I have not yet gone to the dealership to ask them to fix the issues but the biggest one is the drivers side door has an air leak somewhere up by the drivers left ear. It's a squeak once you are driving a certain speed. Another noise inside the vehicle is the back seat. The bottom bench cushion has two clips that rattle non stop even when the vehicle is just idling and not moving. I luckily did not have the water leaking like some other owners but I have noticed the hood moves and shimmies sometimes while driving. The only other issue I am having is with a bubble in the drivers side door in the paint. Again, I have not gone back to the service department yet so I cannot comment on how quick ford will help with the issue. Overall I am pleased with the purchase and will be extatic if the issues get resolved through the dealer.

The "Edge" is very comfortable. I rented this model to go on a trip from NC to Tennessee. Car did great until we encountered the curves in the Tennessee mountains. The rear of the car felt like it was coming up to the front when going in to curves. Rear traction very unstable. Tires had correct air pressure, only 2000 miles on car. Navigating through the electronics (via the up and down, left and right arrows, on the left side lever) is terrible. The Auto Traction function is (in my opinion) useless. I Definitely like "the ride comfort" but, the traction and instability in curves turns the "Purchase Option" off for me.
New Edge Night and Day Difference
We traded in our 2013 Edge SEL and opted for the 2015 Edge Titanium. We are very impressed with the new design both inside and out. Our new Edge is as quiet if not more than my mother in laws 2015 BMW X5. The ride quality has improved even with the optional 20in Tires. I know people gripe about the My Ford Touch, but knock on wood we have never had any issues. The push button controls are a nice alternative to My Ford Touch. The engine provides more than enough power for us in the hills in and around Pittsburgh. We are still under 5000 miles, but continue to be pleased with our purchase. I would definitely recommend this to friends and family.

I recently leased this 2015 Edge Sport. The list price was just over $48K. Because I wanted the 21" wheel option, my dealer traded for my vehicle with another Ford dealer in a neighboring state. So the first time I saw my vehicle was at delivery. In the euphoria of new car purchase, I failed to recognize what I discovered the following day upon closer examination. I was disappointed to find the following quality shortcomings; carpet fit poorly to expose raw floor pan, loose panel on console, loose door trim, poorly fitting driver side door, poorly fitting hood, damaged and ill-fitting window trim. The quality of this vehicle is jaw-dropping awful. I'm embarrassed to be seen in it. It appears to have been assembled by third world slaves. My wife's 2009 $15K Honda Fit is of light years better quality than this piece of crap. Can't wait for my lease to end. I may end it early - it's that bad. I should have bought the Murano despite its ugly front end - it at least was screwed together with better quality. No more Ford's in my future.

Very car like ambience, ride quality and handling. It feels like the center of gravity is much lower than it actually is with flat cornering and a composed ride. Impressive NVH suppression in Titanium edition despite the bigger wheels. Wait for 2016 and Sync3, as the current touch screen is often counterintuitive and as slow as molasses. Good connectivity and power supply options available except USB below center stack is almost impossible to reach. Hands free lift gate leads to cavernous and well finished cargo area. Back seats roomy and with easy ingress/egress. Not sure about structural build quality as you can watch the hood sheet metal vibrating a bit along the power bulges stamped into it, but the cage structure seems quite stiff and protective. Flashy lighting and upscale features. A very good Ford.

My new Edge has the ecoboost 4cyl with trailer package. My experience is that it does everything well EXCEPT FOR...... (see below). It provides a comfortable confidence inspiring ride. The interior is well done. Road noise, rattles etc. are negligible. Fit and finish are good. It tows VERY well. Gas milage is very good; 14mpg towing 3,000 lbs and 23mpg otherwise. EXCEPT FOR ...... The front seats are not comfortable. They appear to be designed for children and Twiggy. I am an average person, 5'9" 170 lbs, the seat is too narrow for me. Someone got carried away trying to put a racing type car seat in this model. The seat bolsters on the side of the seat are too pronounced without adequate room in-between. The result is that there is not adequate room for you butt. The side bolsters squeezes your bum together just like a pair of too small shoes squeezes your toes together. My front seat passengers have also complained of this condition. As I like this car, I will take it to an automotive upholstery shop and have the seats redesigned. I wish the steering wheel would be more adjustable - - my wife's Dodge Caravan adjusts wonderfully. But I don't think I can swap that out :-) UPDATE AUG 2016 I am a little more comfortable with the seat - all my other comments are still actuate. ANOTHER ITEM BUGS ME --> the speedometer's midpoint, at the 12 o'clock position, shows 80mph ! When the speedometer needle is straight up (12 o'clock position) It should be 50mph or 60mph NOT 80 ! The end point of the speedo is 160mph ! This car would have be dropped from a satellite to get to 160mph.
love my Edge but

The late model 2015 I have is really the new 2016 new model. What I find very dangers is the kick under bumper rear hatch close and open. If you reach in to get something to far the hatch comes down on your head. This has happen many times and, I asked my dealer if they could disconnect it and was told they could not. I reached in to get my fishing poles out and the hatch started coming down, had to move fast. No protection on the rear bumper top so the paint gets chipped taking things in and out
