2009 Ford Edge

Great car as long as it is running. Water pump is located in the timing cover and will cost $1,600 to 2,000 to replace. Alternator replacement is not easy. Radiator you need to disassemble the front of the vehicle to change. Expect high labor cost for repairs. Cooling fan will fail so just order one and have ready to install. Brakes will need high quality after market replacements of all factory rotors/calipers and brake pads.


Great riding car!

I love my edge. It rides very well, is very comfortable, and gets good milage. I drive it everywhere I go, even though I have a van I could drive!


still getting to know d car

We bought d vehicle used but havent driven it much, been in d garage. We have driven it to church only a few times, didnt want to put miles in it plus we have other vehicles we can use in town.So far we r happy with it, d only thing i dont care abt this vehicle is d head rest, m short and its set too high for me even in d lowest settings, u cant lean it back nd d bump hits d top of my head which is very uncomfortable as a passenger.


Edge is a great balance, love it

I went for a used Edge, 2009 model with all the options but FWD only. I wanted to avoid issues others encountered with the transfer case, hopefully reduce cabin noise and rarely need the AWD. So far, I am extremely pleased - very quiet ride, great acceleration (but could always wish for a V8), well designed interior with very functional MS In-Sync system, bluetooth link to phone/ media and satellite radio. Interior volume is not huge, but quite adequate especially rear seat room. There is a slight roughness to transmission shifting when coasting at low RPMs (think parking lots), but otherwise very smooth. The gas mileage, as others have noted, is not great - I'm getting about 20-21 mpg in mixed city/ hiway. Overall, I think Ford got it right.


Love The Vehicle

The Ford Edge is a really nice car. It drives so smooth the ride is comfortable as the interior really relaxing. The look is of sophistication, it so far is a joy to have. The only downfall is the gas mileage. Not good.


Great crossover for the money

I always liked the Edge's style, but could never find one when I was looking that I really liked. This year was my year. I found an 09 that had everything I wanted at a great price. It is roomy, has well appointed interior and edgy lines that make the car want to race down the road. The engine certainly obliges, with a great balance of power and pick up. I never have to worry about merging into traffic with this vehicle! The radio and stereo system make the drive effort-less as well with great reception even in the valleys of NE PA. The Sirius radio is a great add-on for those times when you just want to drive... The all the time AWD is both a blessing and a curse- it's great in the snowy hills of PA, but the gas mileage is impacted a bit. Newer models have adjusted for this though, but I'm willing to accept the extra cost for the safety provided by the AWD. I think this is a great car for the money!


Great but watch out of the leaky PTU's...

I love Honda's overall reliability (I own a Pilot and was replacing an Accord) but I find their seats to be uncomfortable. After test driving a Honda and a few other CUV's, I drove the Edge and liked it. After shopping around, I found a 2009 LTD w/ AWD w/22K at the right price. There are plenty of them out there so there are good deals to be had if you are willing to look around and to hold out for the right price. A word to the wise - be certain to have any AWD Edge checked for signs of a leaky PTU, or Power Transfer Unit, before you purchase. I don't know how wide spread of an issue this is but if you google the Edge with leaky PTU or smelly odors, you'll find a few owner blogs addressing it. My local mechanic found the leak easily. I had a new seal kit installed by the local Ford dealer under warranty and, after 4K, so far so good. The dealer claims that Ford is now on top of the issue and will replace the whole unit if it leaks again within the warranty period. Otherwise, I like the car. It has a stable ride, is fairly responsive for a CUV, is very comfortable on those long road trips and has plenty of room for big and tall people.


Edge SEL AWD - great car for the money

This is a great car for the money. I put over 70,000 miles on it in about 2 1/2 years and it still rides and handles like it was new. I have had no problems with it. Looked at the other suv's like Acadia and, really, the 3rd row seats are useless unless you have small kids. A friend of mine has the Equinox and it is smaller and, from his experience, poorly built compared to the Edge. My Edge with awd practically xxxxxxthrough anything upstate NY winters can throw at it. I decided on cloth seats since they looked great new and still look great after 70,000 miles. Past experience with leather is they look bad after that many miles, especially the driver's seat. I use this for business travel but also get out on the weekends skiing, camping, and kayaking.


No more than I would expect from Ford.

I have owned several Ford cars and have been pleased with all but one (Granada). I didn't want leather seats and could not get the extra upgrades with cloth. What I was seriously dissappointed in is the vinyl privacy cover in the back, cheap looking and eleastic already wearing. No, really no interior light in the pocket compartment even the Ford mechanic went looking for it... and couldn't believe it....so I have a $1.00 stick on light in a $29,000+ car. Also, for the driver, you can't close or move the vents. i.e. airconditioning blows on hands.... suffer with arthritius in hands....


You'll love this car

A friend had suggested I test-drive her new Edge before I visited a dealership. I was sold right away. I took advantage of last year's Clunker Program and drove away with my first brand new car in 11 years! It is roomy; the seats are comfortable on a long trip; it has plenty of cargo space; the sound system is terrific. It feels very secure when driving in bad weather, especially snow when all-wheel drive is an advantage. I have been pleasantly surprised by the good gas mileage and if gas prices weren't quite so high I'd be out driving around right now!
