Great Family Car And Very Roomy! — I like that is is very roomy. It has both front and back seats that recline. Trunk room is very nice. The car is in great shape. This Ford Edge is one car I would most definitely recommend to a friend.

Cute Suv With Lots Of Great Extras! — This is such a fun car with lots of style. I get compliments on the look of it all the time. If your looking for a sporty SUV with all the added bonuses of technology, look no more! This is such a fun and safe car to drive on long trips or a short commute to work. We love it!

Pros

Even for a crossover it felt like it had a lot of room.  Seemed to be very dependable.  did pretty good on gas

Cons

the only thing that was bad was the sunroof motor broke and the seals seemed to need adjusted pretty frequently

One Of The Best Crossovers I Have Owned — I would buy another one of these when ever I get back on my feet. My wife loved it and it started to grow on me too. Fortunately we never had to drive it in bad weather like ice or snow but seemed to do real good in the rain so don't know about slick conditions. The only thing I would want is it to have awd just in case.

Edge Review — This is a great family vehicle (that is if your family doesn't grow to a family of five (can't fit three car seats in the back seat). It would also be a great car to take to college due to the massive amount of cargo space.

Very Good Family Vehicle. — This has been a very nice vehicle for our family. We bought this with 14K, but have not had any major issues. It has a bigger vehicle feel. Not all that impressed with the overall milage, (23 highway) but average milage is fine. (19 mpg)

Not Just A Looker But So Much More — I enjoy driving this car as well as the sync technology. Ford made the look of the Edge very fresh and updated. Other features I like are the heated seats, the fold down back seats, and the over all look.

Love This Cuv! — We have three children ranging in age from 12 to 7, and we absolutely love this car! There is enough room for all five of us to go on a road trip comfortably. Mine is a light blue color and I get so many compliments on it. I wish it was a little bit better on gas, with the prices almost reaching $4 a gallon right now, but the handling and performance of this automobile more than makes up for it. I think it accelerates well and I definitely feel safe when I am driving it. All in all, I would recommend this to anyone looking for a stylish and comfortable family car.

Great Car — The Edge has a nice design with a powerful V6 motor. It handles well on the freeways with plenty of up and go when needing to pass someone. The only downside is the fuel economy which gives me about 20-21 mpg going back and forth to work.
