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.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How?

Pam L., SC (2014 Ford Edge)

Carl L., NY (2014 Ford Edge)

"It is close in feel and handling to a Mustang - fun and relaxing to drive"

Anonymous, TX (2014 Ford Edge)

"This is the single largest issue we have with this vehicle. The torque-steer is horrendous. Smash the gas and you'd better be holding on with both hands, at any speed. Making a U-Turn is the worst. Other than this we love this vehicle. Great acceleration and comfort."

KARL P., TX (2014 Ford Edge)

"Adaptive cruise control is really great. It works well and make driving much easier"

Anonymous, VA (2014 Ford Edge)

"The handling is very sluggish"

Anonymous, WA (2014 Ford Edge)

Anonymous, OR (2014 Ford Edge)

"Love my seats, especially when I use the heat setting in winter! My ride is smooth & sturdy, & my Edge is quiet & does not sound like a lawnmower. I leased this car for 3 years, then, bought it because I could not find another SUV that was better than my beautiful red Edge!"

"Ride"

Anonymous, OH (2014 Ford Edge)

"Great road car, very comfortable ride for long trips."

Anonymous, TX (2014 Ford Edge)

"When I bought the car and test driving it, I saw a handle above the passenger door to assist in entry or exit of the vehicle. I did not look at the driver's side assuming that side had a handle above the driver's door too. Dumb Mistake, there is no handle above the driver's door. I miss it tremendously. Ford dealership and after market guys tell me that the car was not constructed to add a door handle above the driver's door so they cannot install one. That is particularly bad for me because I now use the roof to assist me and my arm has water running down my arm every time I have to use the roof assist in the rain."

Donald A., WA (2014 Ford Edge)

"Seats are comfortable, noise is minimal and ride is perfect. Everyone comments on the comfort and smooth ride."

Carl L., NY (2014 Ford Edge)

"this is my 3rd and it's one of the most, if not the most, comfortable seat in the history of cars... 18 hour drives for work NO PROBLEM! i'd say it's the best ever (car and driver did) ...but the explorer platinum we bought is like sitting in a brookstone massage chair"

Douglas S., CA (2014 Ford Edge)

ROBERT D., CA (2014 Ford Edge)

"Very comfortable fit for my body."

GARY C., ON (2014 Ford Edge)

"Styling, performance function"

Anonymous, MI (2014 Ford Edge)

"I bought the Edge to drive it across the US, from Washington DC to Seattle. I took three passengers and two dogs. It was perfect for that. Comfortable seats, smooth ride. It's a great long-distance, cruising car. On the other hand, it's a little stiff in big city traffic, not as nimble as a sedan."

LEE H., WA (2014 Ford Edge)

"Rear seats should fold flat. Grab handles in back should be above middle of door, not on door pillar."

RANDOLPH W., NC (2014 Ford Edge)

"the ride is a little stiff."

JAMES P., PA (2014 Ford Edge)

"car rides very smooth, is quiet and handles great"

DAVID K., NJ (2014 Ford Edge)

MIKE M., TX (2014 Ford Edge)

"Seat adjustments are comforting, Easy to use controls."

T M., KY (2014 Ford Edge)

"I wish it had just a little bit more driver leg room. Great for my wife, I could use a little more. But a comfortable car for travel."

JIM Y., SC (2014 Ford Edge)

"Complex climate control. It almost obliges one to use the complex voice controls. My 2009 RAV4 had two very simple dials that did it all, very easy to do without taking eyes off the road. I really miss that"

Anonymous, ON (2014 Ford Edge)

"Power, especially in acceleration for passing, is truly exceptional. Beautiful interior. Love the "heavy" feel of the vehicle = makes me feel safe, as though I'm driving a Sherman Tank."

MARCIA J., FL (2014 Ford Edge)

"Seats, climate control, and ride are satisfactory, but road noise is annoying on highways. I do a lot of highway traveling between FL and PA so road noise is a big problem for me."

JOYCE W., FL (2014 Ford Edge)

"Quiet, smooth ride even on dirt roads, comfortable seats, heated seats work well. Climate control works well except that the fan automatically comes on at the highest level when climate control is first turned on, and it is annoying to always have to turn it down to a lower fan speed."

KATHY O., CO (2014 Ford Edge)

"Adjustable seats,climate control system,nicely put together interior leather seats.Has quite a bit of room inside to carry items"

G E., OH (2014 Ford Edge)

"It is basically a commodity. Value of it drops like a rock and so the lease is too much I realize after I have been in it a while. Not a bad vehicle but over priced."

JOHN H., SD (2014 Ford Edge)

"The road noise is terrible considering the price they ask for this vehicle. The carpet in the storage area is cheap to say the least. Acceleration is not smooth when I need extra power for passing etc. The touch system is confused and slow when entering addresses."

JUDI S., WA (2014 Ford Edge)

"It was a tremendous buy, very good price for a very well equipped vehicle."

Anonymous, TX (2014 Ford Edge)

"The car is simply not worth the sticker price, they are not built very well."

"Purchased as a tow vehicle for behind our motor home. The transmission allows for "flat" towing, and we had a Blue Ox tow package installed. I can not express what a wonderful system it is, I cannot feel any difference in the way the motor home handles nor in the miles per gallon I get,"
