2013 Ford Edge SEL AWD 3.5 litre from North America
A well built, designed and attractive cross over
The only item that has needed to be replaced in this first year of ownership was the locking mechanism on the driver's side door, and that was replaced under warranty.
I find the 2013 Edge to be a good looking, well put together and feature rich crossover. Mine came equipped with the enormous panoramic roof, heated leather seats, backup camera, touch My Sync, headrest mounted video players, etc.
A lot has been said about the ease of using this version of the My Sync system, and while perhaps not ideal in layout or function, I have found that it works well and it's easy enough to get the hang of with a little practice and familiarity.
The interior is very comfortable and quiet, making long trips a pleasure and short hops around town a breeze. It will comfortably seat four adults or five on short drives. Steering is quite responsive, but a little isolated from the road for my taste. The engine is powerful enough and handles highways and hills with equal ease. That said, the Edge is a fairly heavy car and so acceleration from the stop line is not exactly thrilling. My combined city/highway mileage with 20 inch summer tires is 11.4/100 km and 10.4/100 km with 18 inch winter tires. Not spectacular, but it helps that the car uses Regular unleaded gas.
Visibility is good overall, although the B pillar can make left shoulder checking a little difficult, especially when backing up, but the camera system helps with that. Other than the door latch mentioned previously, nothing on the car has failed or broken, and maintenance costs to date have been comparable to my previous vehicles.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
