Purchased 2013 Ford Edge Limited AWD three months ago. This is my second new ford vehicle and from the start this Ford Edge has made me smile. It's fun to drive, each and every time. It makes heads turn each and every time. It get's me to point A and B each and every time, from 30 mile round trips to 2000 mile round trips. I spent plenty of time reading reviews, watching videos and walking the dealer lot prior to making any decision. We opted with the limited because of all the options. From the My FordSync, Touch Screen, Blind Spot Detection, Back up Sensors, Collision Warning , "Which Actually applied the break for us when a car pulled out of me and my family and actually saved us for an accident. Backup Camera is top notch and it actually has guide lines for easy backup parking. Living in the Greater NYC area, easy parking is almost a must. My favorite feature for the 2013 Edge is the adaptive cruise control. You apply cruise control like you normally would, but...you set a distance. If you approach a vehicle that is going slower then you, normally we have to break and the cruise control goes off. Now the Ford Edge actually will sense the speed of the vehicle in front of you and slow down automatically, then match the speed of the vehicle in front of you. I use this option in the most ridiculous traffic and it works every single time. The vehicle will automatically unlock the doors when you stand next to the vehicle, so if your hands are full, have no fear because your getting in without having to dig for keys. The wheels are 20' which I thought would be a little rougher on the road, but they are not, they look good and will turn heads. The Panoramic Vista Sun Roof is a very cool feature, by far the biggest sun roof I have ever seen. The passengers in the back seat have a moon roof that does not open, but the fact that the back seats recline zero's out that. The vehicle will set a mood light by your choice at night. The floors light up, cup holders, door handles, back seat floor, we have purple and it's very cool. HID Lights are a great feature and they light up the road without issue. A+++ Ford.

So this is my 2nd review of this car since i bought my Edge SEL. I bought this with Panoramic Roof, GPS, 20" Rims. After one year and half and putting 29,000 Kilometres. I Can tell you so far i had zero problems during Canadian winter and summer. This truck has been amazing, my kids love it and my wife still get's amaze when she drives it. Still riding on every thing original the only maintenance i had done so far is the oil changes. Best decision i have made buying my car. If you are in the Market to purchase a new car do look at the Edge before you make your final decision.

I can honestly tell you im in my mid 40's, have owned dozens of cars and never posted a review but here goes. I have just about 2,000 miles on my 2013 Ford Edge Sport. So far very pleased with Ford (this is my first american car in over 15yrs). The styling is not for everyone but i have a Black Sport with 22 inch wheels and really like the looks. The fit and finish is certainly above my expectations (I am coming from a 2008 Porsche Cayenne v6). The Edge is put together very well, seems very solid and the interior is almost german in its appearance. The Sport drives great - i drove the limited but preferred the slightly stiffer, better handling ride of the sport. Also the 3.7l v6 runs very smooth thou If you are worried about gas mileage your better off with the 3.5 v6 or even the 4 cyl eco-boost. I got the AWD - i spend much of my time in Vermont - i was thinking I would need to get some smaller snow tires for the winter but the 22 inch All-season Pirellis have done a good job so far. There is no doubt the Sync/MyFord Touch has a bit of a learning curve but if u read thru the manual (most people dont) and take some time to figure out how it works and what it can really do - its is a Great system. NAV with traffic is the best system ive had in a car to date. Problems ? 1 small one so far - had warning light come on tell me to check the battery - it would not go off even after a long trip so brought it to Ford - was a bad sensor - in and out in 1 day - no charge of course.. No problems since then..

2013 Ford Edge Sport

by from Texas on January 4, 2014

My previous 3 vehicles were Ford ( 02 Ranger Edge 150 k miles when purchased, 08 Mercury Milan 36 k miles when purchased, 09 Ford Escape 27k miles when purchased.) All of the vehicles I've owned were fantastic vehicles as far as reliability. I still own the 02 Ranger but I've lent it to my mother. We traded the Milan in on the Escape only because I wanted an SUV and we wanted to trade it in before the miles got too high. We recently traded in the Escape on the 13 Ford Edge Sport because we found out it had been wrecked and had frame damage which we were not aware of when we purchased the vehicle. It was a great car, handled great, looked great. My only complaint was the leather seemed on the cheap side. As soon as I found out it wasn't exactly safe for me to drive, we were on the hunt. I love SUVs and had always liked the Edge. We test drove the Edge Sport and it has everything! We saw reviews that the Sync/Ford Touch system was hard to use so that was one thing we looked at first. I'm not sure of the age range reviewing or the experience level with electronics but it was not difficult to figure out. There are a lot of options that you can go through but you don't have to. So, take those reviews with a grain of salt. I'm not sure about the complaints on road noise either. My escape had terrible road noise due to the frame damage I assume. The Edge Sport is quiet. If you want Mercedes ride and lack of road noise, shell out the cash and get a Mercedes. Also, ours is new, not used and that does make a difference. I am impressed with just about everything. The back up camera is amazing, the blind spot monitors are to die for as well. It's taking some getting used to as its a bigger car than the escape but that's another thing I love. A lot of room! Not sure what the complaints are on storage. How much and what do you need to keep in your vehicle? Seems like a petty complaint. There is plenty of storage for me. If you live in your vehicle, spring for something larger. Be aware that some people are not stating whether it was new or used that they purchased and they are also not saying what model. Obviously, a base model Edge is not going to be as nice of a ride as the sport or limited. No complaints here. I'm a satisfied Ford customer yet again!

I bought this car after 21 years of driving Japanese cars only. This is my first American, first week of owning it i drove it to Chicago from Toronto. I had zero problems. Amazing Mileage.. 700 KM before i had to do a fill up. Drove 980 KM on one and a quarter tank. Kids were sleeping a sound in the car while night driving. So you can tell very little road noice and bumps. Love the Panaromic roof... No problems and also wife loves it. She thinks she is sitting in a space shuttle the kind of technology it got.

Researched and test drove almost every Crossover in its class and decided on a 2013 Ford Edge Sport. I was a spoiled Lexus GS300 owner and needed a family SUV type with luxury elements that didn't say "old dude". Very pleased with Edge Sport BUT MPG is not 19/26 at 22 average as stated on sticker - average is about 16-17 in City which was a major downer since that was one of my key decision points. Only other model I would have selected is the limited but Sport was a bit more appealing with lots of technology upgrades. Compared to others like Lexus, Jeep, and GMC, Ford Edge outclasses them overall - even MPG in some cases.

Prior to test driving the car, looked at several SUVs. The numerous comments about the Edge Sport riding stiff and noisy, were the major things I looked for during the test drive. The disclaimer on all of this is that my other car is a Corvette. So, with that said I found the car very comfortable. The ride was to my liking (remember it is a "Sport" model) and perhaps it was noisy but not to me. Everyone comments about the MyFord touch but after watching a youtube video by a Ford executive, I found it logical and any questions are handled in the owners manual or online. I own a flip phone (I am 61 years old and hate telephones and use the cell for emergency only) so did not get to connect the phone to the car which is not a problem. Totally enjoy the car.

I bought a Ford Edge and I absolutely loved it for about 2 weeks. That was around the time that my Myford Touch started having issues. This car is the perfect size, full of wonderful features. I love the huge sun/moon roof, the back up camera, the blind spot mirrors have definitely saved me from a few accidents. The seats are super comfortable and with the eco boost engine i average about 24mpg. Here's what i hate about it: The Myford touch system has tons of issues. Sometimes it doesn't turn on and is just a black screen, or it freezes then reboots with a "scheduled system update" message. The navigation is not always 100% reliable and i have had 3 different phones with this car and it still doesn't read my texts like it is supposed to. If you're willing to put up with tech issues and have the dealership deny that there is any problem. this is the perfect car.
