We purchased a 2008 Edge in November of 2010. It is a Limited with pretty much all the options--AWD, nav, vista roof, sport suspension, Sync, etc. It is a great car in inclement weather--very sure-footed in the major snow storm we had three days after we bought it. It seems a little noisy on acceleration from a stop, but it has great high-end power--my sweetie got it up over 100 mph on the test-drive, and it could have gone faster--don't tell the state patrol. The features on this Edge really make it fun to drive. The Sync system works great--very handy to have hands-free calling capability. All the buttons are on the steering wheel, and it was easy to learn the voice commands. The Nav system in 2008 is an older version that requires a CD--it lacks an internal hard drive for route information--but I understand you can buy newer CD's for about $100.00 as streets change. The vista roof is great--fully open, it makes the Edge about as close to a convertible as you can get in a crossover vehicle. The car just feels safe and sturdy, and will hold five adults with no problem--the back seat is actually a little higher than the front, which makes the rear seat passengers feel more like part of the party. Lots of cup holders, too! The rear seats flip down at the touch of a button so that you can put big things in the back--very handy! I only have two complaints. The gas mileage isn't great--about 17-18 mpg in kind of combined city/highway driving--but we knew that going in. The other thing is visibility--I have to be really careful in parking lots that I don't run over pedestrians, as the roof pillars are very wide, and the side-view mirrors are huge. I sit pretty short, so I just have to be very mindful as I drive to look both ways carefully. Other than that, it is a great car--especially as well-equipped as this one is.

Love the Edge!

I went from a 2000 GMC Yukon 4x4 to a 2008 Ford Edge SEL with FWD and don't regret it at all. Love this little suv! It's not as peppy as my V8 was, but no slouch either, and the better gas mileage is way worth it. We're getting in the 24-25 mpg range with mixed driving, high 20s on longer drives (I live in the boonies, so I'm sure my results are different from what you would see if you lived in town). The ride is so nice and smooth and quiet, even on horrible roads. It handles super, no sway in the corners. I am having so much fun driving it! The seats are very comfortable--I cheaped out and got cloth, so I imagine the leather is even better. I can drive several hours without being stiff and achey when I arrive, even though I am 6 months pregnant. My only complaint is the forward tilt of the headrest, but I was able to make that a little better by raising it higher. I really like that it has rear vents in the back of the console for the rear passengers, as not all the cars we looked at had that feature. Living in the South, getting enough air is a Big Deal. There seems to be more room in the backseat area than there was in my Yukon, and I like that the rear seats recline. The interior gives a feeling of "nice", although not posh. There is plenty of cargo space for my needs, lots more than you would think, looking at it from the outside. The steering wheel controls are easy to use. I really like the SYNC, although I'm still learning how to use it. I keep having trouble getting it to hear my voice commands while going down the road--I have to yell really loud, which greatly amuses my 3 year old son and frustrates me--but once I get connected to the person I'm calling, we can hear each other fine on both ends, talking in a normal tone. The radio screen is not my favorite in the world, the layout is kind of jumbled and the info is much more limited than what I'm used to. I wish that I had an outside temperature readout, I really miss that. I think the Edge is a great value for the money. I got a great riding, great driving vehicle with comfortable seats, some neat features, and room for my big dog and anything else I would want to haul, for well under $30,000. I am very very pleased. The fact that it is a domestic vehicle is icing on the cake. I give the Edge 2 enthusiastic Thumbs Up! Great job, Ford!!

This Edge came equiped with all the bells and whistles available. The Sync system was great, allowing me to talk on my phone hands free, a valuable tool when doing sales on the road. The vehicle handled like a dream, steering was very responsive,ride was comfortable and roomy. Satallite radio was great, but the best feature was this had an imput for an MP3 player so I could listen to exactly what I wanted to hear. This vehicle is a definate 5 stars!

Another solid Ford product

Another solid Ford product! Decent on gas, great power and acceleration. By far the most leg room that I have found. I am 6' 2" and fit with room to spare. I would like the radio and other controls a little closer to the driver. Even though some of the controls are located on the steering wheel they still seem just out of reach. Their is plenty of space for four and plenty of storage in the rear. So far I have had only one problem with the vehicle mechanically, Brakes. The ride is very smooth although slightly more truck like than a car.

Love it!

I just purchased the 2008 SE a few days ago, and I already love. I feel safe in it, which is one the things that sold me on it. Not much to complain about on this one. Safe, reliable, worth the money. The one problem I do have is when turning left, the side mirror does block the visibility of the lane. so it's kind of hard to tell if you're in the lane or going to hit the median, but other than that, everything so far is great.

Most Comfortable Car Ever!!

I love my Edge! I love the Vista Roof. I keep it open when it's 104. The a/c keeps me nice & cool. I usually have to turn it down. The sync system is cool, and I love being able to plug my ipod into the armrest compartment. It will even charge it or my laptop going down the road. What more could I ask for? It also looks beautiful in my driveway. I am sold. I love it more than my husband...not really, but it's a close second. You won't be disappointed. It is so easy to drive, just like a car.

Love/Hate

I really like this vehicle. It drives great and $60 ceramic pads will fix lack of braking. The Limited is loaded for the money. I just wish there wasn't so much plastic used in the interior. Now the real bad. There needs to be a recall due to a major transmission issue. From my research, it appears to be $65 senor, but it wreaks havoc when it goes bad. I will see what the dealer says it is. This a researchable issue, so do your homework. If it fixed the first time, I would recommend the vehicle.

by from New Jersey on January 14, 2013

The ford is very roomy, but does not look bulky in the exterior. I have two sons and it greats for all the sports they take. I do not regret my purchase
