    Change oil soon plus check oil low warning..

    Pity I'm no where near Basingstoke..............Evans Halshaw (Preston & Chorley) state there is no way of configuring the auto relock on my Sync 2 2016 build Edge Sport as it wasn't built with auto relock & neither were any other "early" build Edges (to quote them) & Ford Technical have also reaffirmed this (apparently) after EH raised a service enquiry with them. EH were/are incapable (or didn't want to) of speaking to Think Ford in Houndmills so I have now given up chasing!

    Auto Mainbeam

    So just to clarify should it be set to "Right hand traffic" or "Left hand traffic" for driving in the UK? Mine (dealer set) is currently on "Left hand traffic" as above

    My Ford Edge 13 months on.......

    After a visit to the Ford bodyshop last week this was resolved by them adjusting the driver's door, no more wind noise :-)
  4. I've had the Edge (210 Sport) for just over 12 months now so thought I'd share my experiences so far..... In summary I do like the car, I had an ST3 before which was an excellent (fast) car & I still gaze at the RS which I'll buy (as a second car) if my lottery numbers come up, yes I do miss the acceleration :-) Anyway The Edge: Mileage is at around 12000, i had the Ford "Health Check" for £39.99 but mainly to get another 12 months breakdown cover but they do check "everything" over, the only amber warning was for the front NS tyre which is nearing its end of life. I yet again asked them to look into the Auto Relock which isn't configured for my August 2016 build Edge & yet again I'm told "early build Edges don't have the Auto Relock & there is nothing they can do to configure it" & that was after they raised a technical request to Ford so heyho I've given up on that one just like xn85 probably has? I've also experience some wind noise from the driver's door (it's at right ear height as if the window is slightly open & noticeable at speeds over 30-40mph) which has been present since new & Ford have previously replaced door seals & scratched their heads but never resolved it so it is now booked into the body shop next week for them to realign the door to cure it (I hope). Apparently "wind noise" is still covered under the Ford warranty but they did point out wind noise at speeds over 70mph isn't covered which kind of makes sense I suppose. One disappointment has been the mpg which has averaged 33mpg but I have now accepted that using the car for short start/stop runs hasn't helped improve this. I have noticed a pick up on the mpg when I've done a good long motorway run but like I say I do few of them. So would I buy again? I got a very good deal on the car in March 2017, which had a load of extras including the excellent adaptive LED lights, but mainly as it was a Aug 2016 build & EH wanted to shift it. It is Sync 2 but from what I've read that isn't such a bad thing after all - updating the SatNav maps via an ebay purchase of an F6 card was much easier than trying all the Sync3 map update options which appears to be giving Sync3 owners trouble? I very much doubt I'd be able to replace the car like for like at the price I paid so that would be a big consideration when deciding to buy again but 2 years is a long time in the car world so I'll see what's available then. But if I was thinking about buying an Edge today I would if the price was right & I didn't have the wait the 6 months plus for a custom build as I definitely would want most of the extras I have on my current Edge.

    Just over 12 Months, still some faults

    GM is an F5 card, F6 cards are HM5T-19H449-FA (also has F6 emblazoned in big letters on the card). Google HM5T-19H449-FA or see if this link https://www.ebay.co.uk/p/F5-Ford-Navigation-SD-Card-Sony-Sync2-Touchscreen-SAT-NAV/12003472898 works (or cut/paste into browser). Cheers

    Sync 2 here (I've never experienced Sync 3 so I'm not missing that). Bought a Ford Sat Nav SD Card (F6) from ebay for £38.99 late last year (car came with an F5 card when I bought it in March 2017). Card is 2017/2018 and seems to include most of the new housing estate roads around these parts which were only built in 2016, I'll just pop in a F7 card when they become available but not from Ford of course ;-)

    Tyre life

    You’re probably right as my mpg remains stuck at 33mpg 😂🤣

    Auto Relock Sync 2 cars

    TBH I'd given up trying to get mine fixed as like you the car had been back to the dealership on several occasions for them to attempt to rectify the non-functioning auto-relock. How did they eventually discover it was a BCMI misconfiguration & did the dealership rectify it in house?I could just do with knowing what I now need to say to my dealer so it would help if the problem resolution was somehow recorded by Ford Technical otherwise I'll just get fobbed off again. Cheers

    LED PUDDLE LIGHTS

    These are now fitted on my Edge & are very good plus easy to fit, got them on eBay after a recommendation on here so worth a look on eBay. There is a thread from a few months ago about LED puddle lights if you have a look back through the Edge forum posts

    MPG

    Current mileage 7700, mainly urban/rural roads so not many long motorway journeys, averaging 32.3mpg so a bit disappointed so far (Edge Sport 210 with 20" wheels)

    Tyre life

    Yep never checked them & too much reliance on the automatic tyre pressure system so lesson learnt - I'll have to pop to Halfords for a tyre pressure gauge ;-)Oh the tyre couldn't be fixed, screw was too near the side wall so new tyre required much to my bemusement. Make , size & type of tyre are apparently as common as rocking horse sh*t so I ended up back at Ford after 2 high street tyre places couldn't locate the tyre on their stock system. Oponeo don't stock either. So £270! Only bit of good luck is I purchased the tyre & wheel insurance when I bought the car at Ford so I can claim £200 back.

    Tyre life

    6500 miles so far & no problem. However, when I started out this morning the automatic tyre low pressure warning system sprang to life. I had 24psi in my front right tyre which after visiting the garage to pump up I found out there was a screw embedded in the tyre so I'm off to get it repaired at lunchtime. The system also showed 30psi in all the other tyres which upon checking with the manual/panel inside the front drivers door they were all 5psi too low (35psi recommended) & obviously have been from new - the warning system was set at 30psi! All now pumped up & the system reset to 35. So the moral of the story is to check your tyre pressures - I'm hoping the additional 5psi in each tyre may now improve my mpg from around 32 average.

    Auto Relock

    I've given up trying to get the auto relock sorted on mine, it's been into Evans Halshaw 4 times to get fixed. I'm now told Ford Technical have confirmed it's not available on my "early build" Edge & that's that. They couldn't sort out the driver's door wind noise either so I just have to play the music louder when travelling at over 40mph!

    Any Positive Curtain Airbag Recall stories?

    All replaced without incident on mine at EH several weeks ago, just wish they could similarly sort out the driver's window/door wind noise & "auto-relock"
