The Edge has good interior space, easy access, and sprightly engines in either its V6 or turbocharged four-cylinder versions. The overall package falls short though, due to so-so refinement and driving dynamics. The MyFord Touch controls force you to take your eyes off the road far too much. Even simpler controls in lower-level models are distracting.

Owner Reports

Worse Better
Reliability History Reliability History The reliability charts are based on responses on hundreds of thousands of vehicles from our latest Annual Auto Survey. Consumer Reports subscribers reported on any serious problems they had with their vehicles during the past 12 months that they considered serious because of cost, failure, safety, or downtime, in any of the trouble spots included in the table below. The results are presented relative to the average model that year. Extra weight is given to the more serious areas such as major engine or transmission problems. Based on this data and further analysis, we predict reliability for the latest year. N/A indicates that we did not receive a large enough sample size to provide data for a specific year. An X indicates that the vehicle was not manufactured for a specific year.

Owner Reported Trouble Spots

The Reliability score is based on our latest subscriber survey of 2013 Ford Edge owners. The owner comments describe problems respondents experienced with this vehicle.

In-car Electronics

CD or DVD players, radio, speakers, GPS, communication system (e.g., OnStar), display screen freezes or goes blank, phone pairing (e.g. Bluetooth), voice control commands, steering wheel controls, portable music device interface (e.g., iPod/MP3 player), backup or other camera/sensors.

What Owners Say

Backup or other camera/sensors

"Backup camera worked intermittently. Sometimes a black screen, sometimes an upside down view, sometimes no screen at all. I had to save to have this fixed. Dealer replaced the camera. Very expensive. I thought it should have lasted longer especially for as little as Zi use this car."

Anonymous, CA (2013 Ford Edge SEL Unsure)

"Backup camera worked great for the first year. First he alignment lines stopped showing up. Then the picture was upside down or the screen would go completely black. It would throw an error code to go see your dealer. Sometimes the camera stays on for several minutes when we put the Ford Edge in drive. I realize this is a convenience kind of item, but once you become dependent on it, it doesn't really seem so. We have children and the camera gave us a sense of security. Of course we always look behind the vehicle before getting in. We have to because of the way we park in our garage. Also, I park in a covered garage at work. I used it everyday when backing into a parking place, so I didn't back into the cement wall. No recalls on this. Very upsetting FORD! Next compact SUV will either be an Audi or a BMW."

Due to relocation issues, have not been able to get the car in for repair, although when I mentioned it to the service department, they did indicate this could be a costly repair. Hopefully, I can have the car serviced this summer (2020)."

My trusted auto mechanic said only dealer can do this work. It stopped working 5 years in, and no longer under warranty. I refuse to pay Ford $1000. So I tell people, if a vehicle is coming at us upside down, then it's still coming at us. Super pissed off that i spent $46,000 on a new fully loaded car and my backup camera isn't working."

Also, which is dangerous, it will not allow us to lock the doors normally when this light is on. If you click the door lock button on the door, the doors lock, then unlock. They will only lock if you press the lock button on the remote control for the car, or when the car is not running."

Slipping transmission

"Starting a normal day starting the car and driving out of the garage. I traveled about 2 blocks, stopped at a stop sign and attempted to accelerate. The engine RPM's went up but the trans slipped and then kicked in and the car moved but wouldn't shift. I stopped and started again and did the same thing but shifted and stopped moving. I turned around and just made it home. I shut the car off and let it sit. I restarted and checked the trans fluid level. THe level was fine and did not smell. I tried to drive again and would move but barely and started slipping more to the point it wouldn't move. I originally thought it was the gear selection shifter again because I had a similar problem previously where the trans wouldn't shift into park and that was covered on a factory recall. I had it towed to the Ford deadlier thinking it was under warranty. After having the car for 3 weeks because their transmission mechanic was backed up and finally they told me the trans needed to be replaced and would cost $4,500 for a rebuilt transmission and computer board for the shifter at a mear $300 and not covered under warranty. I purchased a Ford Factory extended warranty for5 years and/or 60K miles. The transmission flailed at 70k milesbut under the 5 year extension. I had the car towed to a private car repair and was replaced and fixed for under $4k total. I will never buy a Ford product again. I had a Ford Tauris back in the late 90's that I had to put 2 transmissions in the car (the first on the factory) in 130k miles."

VERY FRUSTRATING. Ford can't tell us what the problem is."
