I bought it used and after 3 months had 2 issues. The chart shows the number of problems reported across all service years for each given model year of the Ford Edge. I will instead be watching for it at a junk yard. The Edge Sport gets more than just new brakes, a new powertrain, and a monstrous new grille, though—it also gets a sumptuous new interior, which comes standard with the MyFord Touch infotainment system. My wife likes the appearance of the vehicle and the amenities. Gear selector is in park, but the transmission sensor locks transmission and displays message to put shifter in park.
As such you need to open and close more until resolved. Literally have to click 1 cm to the left of whatever I want to click. I like Red for night driving. New pistons, larger rear rotors, and an upgraded booster improve brake feel and help to chop the 70-to-0-mph distance from 191 feet to a more manageable 175. Primary Use: Commuting to work Fantastic Vehicle — This is the best car I have ever owned. The system wouldn't turn on, flashed the defroster didn't work causing the windows to fog up and create unsafe conditions.
Even simpler controls in lower-level models are distracting. Replaced under warranty whole muffler system! In other words, the roof must withstand a force of at least 4 times the vehicle's weight before the plate crushes the roof by 5 inches. Now, it is working intermittently. A decent percentage of that weight resides, unsprung, in the 22-inch wheels. The MyFord Touch controls force you to take your eyes off the road far too much. Head protection Driver — The dummy's head was protected from being hit by any hard structures, including the intruding barrier, by a side curtain airbag that deployed from the roof and a side airbag that deployed from the seat.
A good rating requires a strength-to-weight ratio of at least 4. It essentially has all that most people would need as standard equipment. Primary Use: Family transportation Amazing, Beautiful, And Sporty — Havent had any problems yet currently at about 27,000 miles and of course still running strong as ever. This would leave interior lights on causing a safety concern. Cannot move the selector and the car cannot be started. Then there is the amazing sound system, that is if you have the sony sound option.
For a marginal rating, it is 2. It provides a big bump in output versus the outgoing Sport model, which used the same 265-hp, 3. Decent Vehicle — The thing I like in terms of this generation of Edge is the interior room. It is definitely geared for economy because I have noticed a bit of a lag when I floor it. A high head acceleration occurred when the dummy's head hit the steering wheel through the airbag, indicating that head injuries would be possible.
The navigation, rear view camera, heated leather seat, plenty of cargo area and room!!! Once it would randomly turn on it wouldn't turn back off, resulting in a blast of freezing air even when it was below freezing outside. Injury measures Driver — Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity. Amazing — I love everything about the ford edge sport!!! Still, the ride is commendable over all but big bumps, a testament to the revised suspension tuning. The 2013 Ford Edge cars have the most problems reported 2,125 problems. Feels it is something we did to paint. Ford Edge owners have reported a total of 9,144 problems for their cars built in the 13 model years listed in the chart below.
The overall package falls short though, due to so-so refinement and driving dynamics. May not let me answer incoming calls. Side airbags front and rear head curtain airbags and front seat-mounted torso airbags Wheelbase 111 in. Primary Use: Commuting to work Great Crossover With Good Options Like A Luxury Vehicle For A Better Price. . The look the style the exterior and interior, the drive and the vehicle is wonderful.
The temperature controls were also not working properly, you would either get max heat or max air instead of being able to set the temperature of the air to a steady level. Opening and closing the door several times up to 10 so far eventually turns off the warning light. The other knock on this generation is the sometimes problematic MyFordTouch. Anything lower than that is poor. The results are shown in Table 3. Then, the camera stopped working. During rebound, the dummy's head hit the sunvisor and roof rail.
Passenger — Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity. I recently discovered there is a recall out for this system. Apparently, Ford is taking this whole midcycle-refresh thing seriously. Sometimes, the 'system' will just change the color to something else. It had to be taken to a Ford dealer to have this done. Does not affect operation of vehicle, but annoying. For an acceptable rating, the minimum required strength-to-weight ratio is 3.
