Has anyone noticed that Ford steering wheels are still designed for 10 and 2 hand positions?
The safe hand positions for steering wheels changed from 10 and 2 to 9 and
3 or 8 and 4 a number of years ago - since airbags were installed in the
center of the wheels. But the steering wheel on my new 2016 Ford Edge still
has the grips at 10 and 2 and nothing at 8 and 4. I looked at my neighbor's
new Lincoln and it's the same. When is Ford going to catch up to the times?
Uhhh, you didn't notice this when you test drove it. Quit nitpicking it and enjoy it. The AWD Edge is a great vehicle.
When is Ford going to catch up? Interesting. If it is too challenging for you to handle, perhaps you should trade it in on some lower grade car with a steering wheel you feel more comfortable with. Me, I like 10-2. Don't handle the wheel like a hammer... just hold it without wrapping your fingers all the way around it. When you turn, let your hands slide instead of crossing your arms holding on to the wheel.
