    Ford Edge First Impressions

    Well I picked up my new motor, and have not been dissapointed, although I have only done a few hundred miles each one has made me smile, really impressed with the auto box it feels seamless even in Sport, I've even had a play with the paddles, but they are now pretty much redundant, and so far no left foot braking, but I do tend to go for the gear stick whilst approaching junctions. This is my first automatic and to be honest I wish I had gone for one sooner. I'm also impressed with the engine and it feels very capable, and in my opinion more powerful than I had expected, in line with the gearbox it also feels smooth, my good lady has put it through it's paces and has commented that it is no slouch. So far there have been no niggles, no squeaks, creaks or rattles or any other issues and everything appears to work as it should. The seats are comfortable, although my wife says the mondeo was comfier, I'm not convinced, that asides she likes the car also. My mother in law is not as able as she used to be and she gets in and out much easier than the Mondeo, instead of basically falling in to and having to be pulled out of the Mondeo the seat is at a height where she can sit on it and swing her legs in and out, adjustable suspension would have been a nice option. I've read in other posts about problems with the tailgate, and I have had one phantom closure, I can only assume that I activated the sensor with my foot whilst putting the dogs in the back, as I am now conscious of this It has not happened again. Still early days and only 800 miles on the clock so I will not go too overboard on the first impression praise, but so far so good.

    Edge bike rack

    Any one have experience/ advice how to? what to choose for caring 2 bicycles with Ford Edge. I do not look for tow bar option as my car do not have one fitted and to do it now would cost £450 plus another £400-500 for bike carrier, so perhaps might work cheaper to get cheap bikes in teh destination and than dispose them after use ;) As well cannot get roof mounted one as I have panorama roof :) yey.. So my only solution is tailgate rack... but than we do have that BIG PLASTIC SQUISHY SPOILER. As said I do look to carry 2 cycles externally! Any tips, guides, propositions...
  3. Hey guys, I have a Mondeo edge 09 2L manual with 45K milage. It was in a perfectly good condition when I bought it 9 months ago. I changed front tyres 2 months ago since they were wearing thin (new ones are Goodyear 215/55 R16 93W, rear tyres still Hifly 215/55 R16 97W XL). I also got a 4-wheel alignment. Since then began experiencing sudden swerving of the car to either side when driving on uneven roads, bumps, ruts.. etc. It's more noticeable around the back and on high speeds (40 MPH+). It's usually accompanied by some change in steering wheel direction. Done some research and I guess it's called tramlining but again not sure. Also not sure if it were there before I change the tyres cause I bought it in summer when roads were even, changed them in winter around the time roads became horrible. I checked it in a local garage which found nothing wrong with the suspension. Went back to the guy who fitted the new tyres to check alignment and suspension, said alignment is fine but the rearside offside control/trailing arm bushing is "wornish" and it might be the cause, would cost £90 and recommended doing it on both sides. He didn't seem very sure though, so I thought better than just do it. Now I'm at loss. I don't know what this is or where I should go to get this fixed! Any help or recommendations? I'm in Nottingham by the way. Thank you.

    Curtain Airbag recall

    Hi all, my first post, Ive had my Ford Edge Sport 5 months and love the car. Last week i got a letter from ford that my car has to have the curtain airbags replaced, now having worked in a body shop i knew this prob wont be straight forward as the roof lining and all side trims etc have to be removed. Now the car went into fords today for the work and it was immaculate when it went in and now i have black marks all over the roof lining, sun visors, side trims, broken clips on the side trims and cross threaded screws, I'm so disappointed as it doesn't even look like they have cleaned the car after. I detail cars for a living which makes it worse as I'm so particular about everything. Has anyone else had this recall on there edge. Allan

I would like to know everybodies thoughts on this topics as well, not of the learning topic but more of the 2040. What type of business are you in and the effects of this new law.

    Possible purchase

    Hi Folks, Its my first time posting on the forum as I'm seriously looking at getting a Ford Edge. However the forum makes for grim reading. There appear to be a lot of reliability issues experienced by drivers.( I currently drive toyotas) I've also noticed there appear to be scant deals to be had, I drive about 17k a year. I'm not in the business of putting down huge deposits to go along with big monthly payments. I'd be delighted to hear other people's experience if possible. Thanks SB

    Edge waiting time!

    Hi all, I am new here so please be gentle. In September 2016 I do placed order for new Ford Edge Sport, with initial date of the delivery indicated by the dealer for November/ December. It was very important for me as I do had another car on Personal Contract Lease with expiry date mid December. Long story short, now we do reach end of march and even my lease provider agreed to extend lease for max 90 days.. now I ended without any car (okay I do drive car from short term Hertz). Delivery date been at least 8 times changed by the Ford UK, via my dealer without even slighted explanation why. According to ETIS car was manufactured in Canada on 3.11.2016 and shipped to Europe from Newark US in end of January - reach Belgium port of Zeebruge on the 20.Feb 2017! Slowly getting so frustrated as that delay is getting massive and up to date do not have real time of delivery or proper explanation. So far most of updates from my dealer are simple 1 line of text and just screenshot of the order status :( " I can confirm this vehicle would come with SYNC3 as it would be a factory build and you would expect to take delivery roughly 12 weeks after placing an order. " " - I have been checking the ETA dates of existing customers vehicles that are due in and can provide you with the latest status of your vehicle; currently Ford Logistics are stating it is due in week ending 21st January (as mentioned before, these dates can be subject to change by the manufacturer). - I have been checking the ETA dates of existing customers vehicles that are due in and can provide you with the latest status of your vehicle; currently Ford Logistics are stating it is due in week ending 25th February (as mentioned before, these dates can be subject to change by the manufacturer). " With reference to my previous update, your vehicle was due to be in to our compound week ending 25th March – until it arrives I’ll be unable to offer a delivery date as you can appreciate. I am currently waiting on the latest update from Ford Progress. Please keep in mind we do talk about car worth over £40k... so surely Merc, BMW ... grounds!! DO any one else experienced such delay and crap customer service? Now I am on the verge of walking off from the contract and turning in to Germans... as they can provide me with the nice set of wheels in reasonable time/ probably faster than real delivery by FORD...
  10. HI Folks, Just wanted to say Hello - awaiting delivery later this month of Edge Sport 210 Canyon Ridge, although Ford are being a bit vague on delivery date.I'm coming from a Jag XF 3.0l diesel, the olds are struggling to get down to the jag and the family are needing to take more stuff.looking forward to it, I was really impressed on the test drive I had, drove significantly better than most of the other larger SUV's I tried and the cabin had the right feel tootallguy

    Fuel tank sloshing

    Does anyone else have a noisy fuel tank? We didn't notice it until we filled it up to full and drove without the radio on or 3 childen in the back! Between full and 3/4 of a tank it's like being at sea. We took it back to the dealer who agreed it was unacceptable for a nearly 40k car, but ford say "the vehicle is working to designs intent"

    FORD EDGE REVIEW

    Ford’s new Crossover SUV boasts the combination of the latest technology and refinement to rival other premium manufacturers’ offerings, but at a fraction of the cost OVERVIEW The new Edge is available in Zetec, Titanium and Sport variations, with all models offering Ford intelligent all-wheel drive, Active Noise Control, Pedestrian Detection, Ford DAB Audio with SYNC 2 connectivity system, privacy glass and 19in alloy wheels as standard. Optional extras available across the range include: Lux Pack, Sony DAB Navigation system with 12 Speakers, Perforated Dinamica Seats, Variable Climate Control Front Seats, Heated Rear Seats, 10-way Power Driver & Passenger Seats, Opening Panoramic Roof and Power Door Mirrors, 20inch Alloy Wheels (standard on Sport) ENGINE / DRIVETRAIN The performance from Ford’s 210PS bi-turbo 2.0-litre TDCi diesel engine is more than adequate to propel the Edge to the required speed in a very satisfactory time. Other engine options include the 180PS 2.0 litre TDCi diesel engine. Both engines are rated to deliver 48.7mpg fuel efficiency and 149g/km CO2 supported by Auto-Start-Stop technology. The Bi-Turbo engine features two turbochargers and offers enhanced performance and efficiency. The primary turbo works at lower speeds, giving you an extra boost when you need it – such as when turning from a junction into moving traffic. Meanwhile, the secondary turbo works at higher speeds, like when you need to overtake a slow-moving vehicle A choice of 6 speed manual gearbox and the 6 speed PowerShift automatic gearbox (with twin clutch) are offered to mate with either of the engines. The choice for a more sedate journey is made by selecting ‘D’ in the automatic transmission, as opposed to selecting ‘S’ for ‘Sport’ which results in a much livelier journey with increased response from the engine and transmission. The automatic transmission has the ‘Paddle Shift’ feature which gives some control of gear selection to the driver if desired. Overall, the 6 speed PowerShift automatic transmission is very responsive being quick to change, both up and down in either conventional Drive or the Sport mode. EXTERIOR The all-new Ford Edge exterior is carefully sculpted with a muscular and yet compact bonnet. To improve aerodynamic efficiency, unique air curtains are positioned on the lower part of the fascia to guide air from the front of the vehicle, out through the front wheel wells and down the vehicle side. The Headlamps feature Xenon lamps with automatic sensing for high/low beam (Anti-Glare), cornering and load variation. Mirrors feature auto-fold and also a Blind Spot indicator. The exterior is equipped with a rear spoiler, with optional roof rails and detailing in chrome to further enhance the styling. The Sport features front, rear and side Sports body styling with dark exterior detailing. Other options include front and rear Park Sensors along with front and rear Cameras to avoid colliding with any obstacles. A full length Panoramic Roof with sliding and tilt function allow more natural light and fresh air to enter the interior with very little wind noise. INTERIOR The interior has been designed with high-quality materials throughout, including soft-touch trims on the dashboard and centre console, high-gloss piano black surrounds on the switch bezels and a satin silver metal finish for the door handles, air vent bezels, glovebox trim and steering wheel detailing. The spacious Edge is also offered with heated and cooled front seats and heated rear seats from the Titanium series. The interior offers a vast array of controls and in particular, the steering wheel is embellished with a selection of switches and buttons allowing the driver to select and alter various functions. Voice control function is available for the comfort, entertainment, navigation and telephony systems. Interior refinement is enhanced with acoustic windscreen glass and laminated glass for both front door windows, minimising the intrusion of wind noise. Underbody panels and wheel-arch liners further minimise road and wind noise. All Edge models are also equipped with Ford’s Active Noise Control technology that detects unwanted engine noise in the cabin and cancels it out with opposing sound waves fed through the integrated sound system. There is an option for a Power Tailgate control with hands-free and key-free function to allow access to the capacious loading area. The seats fold to allow an increased load area with the flexibility of 60/40 split which does not impede on the passenger area too much. Seats are generally quite comfortable but rather firm which can lead to slight discomfort over long distances with limited rest breaks. TECHNOLOGY The Edge offers a variety of Ford technologies, including Adaptive Steering, which automatically optimises the steering response according to vehicle speed, making it easy to manoeuvre at low speeds, while remaining precise and intuitive at higher speeds; and Front Wide View Camera, which makes restricted visibility junctions or parking spaces easier to negotiate. Edge debuts segment-first Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection; a camera- and radar-based system that can operate at speeds from 5mph to 110mph to detect vehicles and people in the road ahead. The system can automatically apply the brakes if a potential collision is detected and the driver does not respond to warnings. The Edge features Ford’s Intelligent All-Wheel Drive (AWD) technology as standard, delivering a seamless transition between front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive performance to provide a more secure footing on the road especially in slippery conditions. Measuring how the car’s wheels are gripping the road surface every 16 milliseconds – 20 times quicker than it takes to blink – the system can send up to 100 per cent of engine torque to the front or rear wheels. ROAD TEST SUMMARY The Ford Edge is a superb car to drive either around town, motorways and also mild off-road conditions. The combination of safety and Driver assistance functionality result in a car that you can feel secure in the knowledge that you are driving something that get you to your destination safely and still feeling relaxed after a long distance. Ford’s Adaptive Cruise Control with Pre-Collision Assist is definitely a safety enhancement that is essential for safe driving at any speed. Ford has utilised the on-board technology to enhance the system to be an incredibly reliable and useful safety aid. Once used, it becomes difficult to switch off and solely rely on your own reactions. The system also features Traffic Sign recognition to allow the driver to set the speed limiting to stay legal at all times. Keyless entry is a feature of the Edge, and as with some other manufacturers, you have quite a ‘chunky’ key which you have to carry around to then leave somewhere within the car, but where? There doesn’t seem to be a specific area to place it so it could end up in a multitude of places and then it’s a case of finding it when you leave the car. Given that the Edge has Active Noise Cancellation, the noise levels within the car are incredibly low. However, the fuel tank leaves a lot to be desired when it comes to vehicle design. There doesn’t appear to be any baffles within the tank, as when you accelerate and decelerate, you can hear (and feel) the fuel ‘sloshing’ backwards and forwards which is quite off-putting, especially on a vehicle of otherwise good build quality. The full length opening panoramic glass roof is superb for allowing in natural light but stopping the harmful UV rays from swamping the interior. With the addition of the pop-up windbreak at the front reducing wind noise, it all seems to work very well. Overall, the Edge is a car loaded with useable technology and features usually reserved for much more expensive and up-market brands but delivers a similar ‘feel good factor’ from the driving experience with a smaller price tag.

    ABS Module Failure

    I have a 2010 Ford Fiesta 1.25 Edge and the ABS Module has failed. I have had various quotes to have it repaired from £700 - £1100. As it is now an old car I was considering buying a used ABS module from a car salvage and recycled parts company, which would work out a lot cheaper. I would like to know which ABS Module I would need for my car or are they all the same? Thanks
  14. Hi, I bought a Ford Fiesta Edge 2012 1.25 3dr in June 2015 second hand. When bought It had around 35,000 on the clock and now, 7 months later has around 58,000. I mostly do motorway driving for work, but was wondering if anyone has any idea how long these cars can last? I'm doing regular services at ford dealerships every 12,000 miles. Thanks loads!
  15. Hello all!! I bought a Ford KA Edge 2010 last month, and slowly getting used to it. But one thing that's nagging me is that the Aux Input socket seems broken. When I try and put in an aux cable, it doesn't fit and is very loose. Do I have to purchase a cable from Ford directly for this or is it possible I have a dodgy cable... OR is it a problem with the socket... The other end of the Aux Cable fits fine in my phone... I'm well and truly baffled. Please help! Many thanks

    2015 Edge - Press Kit

    So I've just stumbled upon this website used to hold the marketing information for all of ford Europe's new models. http://www.fordmedia.eu/skill/cars/ Here's the Edge 'Press-kit' page http://edge.fordpresskits.com/enhanced.htm edge_in_60_seconds_EU.pdf
  17. Zetec engine. Just bought this as my first car and love it but... the gearbox has, um, character. Basically, 3rd and 4th are both an inch left of neutral, 1st and 2nd are miles off to the left, and reverse is just a pain in the neck. Sometimes if I'm facing up a hill and go into 1st the gearbox will say, "Hey how about 3rd instead?". I'll SEE that it's in 1st but then I let go and it's somehow sprung into 3rd. Also, jiggling it around in neutral seems very messy. I had a friend go through the gears while I looked under the bonnet at the shifter cable and it looks as if something's loose. The cable has a barrel on the end of it (imagine a cork with some string cored down it) and this barrel seems to pop out of a hole in what I'm assuming is the gearbox, and then it has trouble finding its way back in there on every other shift. Is this barrel supposed to be coming out of the hole at all? And if so, is it supposed to be able to do it without missing or jiggling around? Could the shifter cable be a bit slack? Any help from some more learned people would be amazing! Many thanks :)
  18. Hello folks, we've been offered a Ford Edge as the rental car for our extended holiday in California. We are a family of four with two teenagers and we would be using this car for a several thousand mile road trip, carrying all our luggage and posessions with us. We will have four medium to large size suit cases plus whatever souvenires we want to buy along the way. Will the Ford Edge be big (and comfy) enough? Next vehicle on offer up in size is a people carrier which is somewhat more expensive and probably more cumbersome to drive. Thanks
  19. hi people long time reader first time poster. i have a ford fiesta edge 1.25 in frozen white, i currently have a few mods: xenon head lights. decals ford stick over badges. looking to see what else i can do to this to make it look good. thanks
  20. I currently have a 2011 Ford Fiesta Edge 1.25 82ps with around 15,000 miles on it. I bought the car a year ago when it was an ex-demo car, I have done around 10,000 since I have had the car. I saw with Dagenham Motors that they have an offer on the new 2013 Ford Fiesta Titanium at £12,495 (with the option to upgrade from 80ps to 100ps for another £600 odd). They have offered me a rough figure of £6,000 part ex for my current car subject to a viewing. Obviously the Titanium model includes a lot more gadgets and to me, most importantly, the ecoboost engine. I have been told by a few people that my current cars value will drop significantly in the next few months as it goes past the two year old mark. Does anyone have any suggestions as to if I should upgrade and why? Seeing as I paid £8,500 at the start of Feb last year for my current car this seems like a good deal to get all of the extra tech and the new more economical engine. Help anyone? Thanks
