2021 Ford Edge Review

I like this car very much with one exception. The paint quality is not good. I’ve had to repair several chips in paint. Seems like you barely touch car and paint will chip. I have Star White which is a premium color. This shouldn’t happen. Touch up paint works great! Too badI have to use it!

Stay away

The Ford Edge 2021 ST I have purchased is a Lemon! The Dealer, Wantagh Ford has the car more than I do (Yet I pay the monthly fees and insurance.) It has been leaking oil since day 1. and the dealer keeps trying to make excuses as to what is wrong and truly they have idea or don't want to say theFord Edge is a lemon

Love it but loud

Drives nice and roomy. But has the loudest engine rattle I have ever heard and dealer service dept says it’s normal. I’m ready to trade it it for something that’s not a ford. My 2012 edge was much quieter…I should have kept it. I bought the 2021 edge new November 2021
