My first Ford, 2009 Limited FWD
Have owned my 09 Edge Limited for several months now. Love the exterior appearance, the wheels are beautiful, paint color is a Silver metallic. The interior is somewhat simple, with hard plastics throughout. Even though this was disappointing at first, after several months I realize that everything is very solid and well fitted. Very easy to drive, ride is smooth and quiet. LOVE my vista roof, lets in a tremendous amount of light, and at night it's wonderful to see the stars. The back seat is roomy even with a large carseat in the center, 2 adults are very comfortable on either side. Our best gas mileage HWY is 26, best CITY has been 18-19. Combined driving is normally around 22. Really like the Sync system for my phone and IPod. Overall, I am thrilled with my Edge, and receive many compliments.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!
I needed a car to haul the dogs, groceries, gear, family, etc... I wanted something big enough to handle my needs yet small enough to fit in the driveway. My Edge is a bit wider than I was initially looking for but it's beefy wide not ugly wide. So stable on the roads, great handling city or highway. First long trip was Seattle to Spokane and it was a walk in the park. 2nd trip was down the Oregon coast and the trip was a dream! 10 straight hours for the drive home and my back was happy happy happy! This thing is so comfortable! There are pictures below showing how much you can pack into the back of this car! We camped for a week, went shopping (tax free zone!) and enjoyed the freedom of the open road in comfort and style. The panoramic roof is amazing. I have it open almost all the time even in cloudy weather because it's fresh air and bright! My dogs love the space they have. I have a full size dog bed in the back and they can lounge or see out the windows easily. The cargo net makes it safe for them when opening and closing the back hatch and I use 2 of the gadget tie down thingys for their leashes (they are leashed at all times for their safety). The sound system is wonderful. I am not a conformist so I do not have an ipod but my Zen hooks right up to the Sync system and plays and charges without a hitch. Sync is the best ever! in our family there are 4 cell phones and all are able to hook up though the kids (21 & 22) have declined to do so... wonder why? I have the all weather mats from Ford. I recommend them! My car is in Cinnamon and has Camel leather interior. Whoever thought camel carpet would be cool does not have pets, children or ever drives to the beach or mountains. I just bought this in the spring and am looking forward to seeing if I can get out of my driveway and up our hill this winter. I am so tired of missing work due to snow or having to depend on others for a ride. I'm hoping the AWD will be what I need. I drive back and forth to work and have to fill up every 2 weeks if I do no other running around. I am getting the high average on city of 17.4 mpg and on the Oregon trip I was getting about 22 mpg but there were only about 500 miles on it when I left.
i have an 09 edge with no complaints what so ever. it gets good gas mileage, drives great rides smooth and has plenty of power and i haven't had a minutes worth of problems.
Best Car I've ever owned.
I'm not an SUV guy and although they classify this as a CUV (whatever that means) it's really an SUV. With that being said when I was looking, I wasn't looking for an SUV, infact I was looking at cars like the Infinity G35, BMW 3 series, Audi's, etc. So how did I end up here? Well, I was test driving several cars and I was at a dealer that had a high end brand as well as Ford. The salesperson said that while I was at it I should check out the Edge. I turned him down, but he continued to persist and so finally I did just to appease him. I was very impressed the first time I drove. VERY roomy. I'm 6'6 and I can sit in the front and back more comfortably than any other car I've owned. Not completely convince I asked to take it on an overnight test drive. I live in upstate NY, so as my luck had it, the night they let me take it it snowed 9 inches. I was doing donuts in a parking lot at 40 mph. Fun? Yes. Do I recommend this with any other vehicle? Not unless you like wrapping around light posts and ending up in ditches. Snow is no match for the car. I was sold, and since buying it (Burnt Orange limited ed with everything except GPS) I have fallen for this car like a high school boy's first girlfriend. I love it and have absolutely no regrets. There are so many little features here that I otherwise would have never looked for that now I "can't" do without (automatic light adjusting rear view mirrors, button to put down the back seat on command, very very xxxx sun roof). Buy it. It is awesome, which will make you awesome (if you are not already).
Awesome Impulse Buy
Wife saw it at Ford showroom a year ago ,sat in it and fell for it. She loves cars and appreciates handling ,comfort ,styling and gadgets. She made all the phone/radio/I-pod/ etc all work. And they do work flawlessly. We have taken it on long runs 1200 miles one way or more. You can be in it all day and it at the end of the day is as comfortable as much larger cars we have owned . Handles great out on the interstate, passing trucks or slow movers.The trans is smooth and all those gears really help. MPG is very good.
Love it - comfortable and very reliable
I've had my 2009 Edge for 4 months after owning Mercedes for 25 years. The car is great - surprisingly comfortable and solid - - it feels good to drive and I'm very pleased that Ford has made such a great vehicle. I'd buy it again in an instant and recommend it highly. The vista roof is really cool, too.
So many defects
I would say it is a nightmare to have this car under you garage. -Suspension system is so week, makes hard sound when hitting anything in the road and the company says it is normal. -Vista roof always makes cracking sound. -Rear brakes consumed before front ones!! -BAD design of AC. very week. -problem with the electricity, some times you can't turn on any interior light. -Hiss sound continues around 30 minutes after starting the engine probably from the fuel bump (can be heard from inside really noisy). and so many more
Greatest decision I've ever made
This vehicle is perfect. Comfortable, roomy, excellent fit and finish. Quiet, powerful, great features (SYNC). The premium stereo sounds excellent, seats are great on long trips. I couldn't possibly be more satisfied for what I received for the money.
NICE BUT EXPEBSIVE
I LIKE MY NEW 2009 EDGE SUV IN GENERAL, IT IS COMFY AND LOOKS REALLY COOL. LOVE THE SYNC. BUT THE GAS CONSUMPTION IS VERY VERY HIGH. I HAD A ENDEAVOR BEFORE AND THE GAS CONSUMPTION WAS MUCH LESS. I AM TALKING ABOUT 50% MORE PER WEEK.
