Reliability indicates how models have performed in the past, providing the basis for predicting how the vehicles will hold up in the year ahead. These charts provide the most comprehensive reliability information available to consumers. Based on information received from our latest subscriber survey for over 300,000 vehicles, our reliability history charts give you a rundown on how 2000 through 2021 vehicles are holding up in 17 potential trouble spots, ranging from the engine, transmission, and brakes to power equipment and the electrical system. NA 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 2016 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

Android Auto

"Android Auto works but it is quirky. It is hard to tell whether it is Android Auto that is quirky or Sync3. I have come to believe that it is probably Android Auto as I can usually overcome the problems by resetting my phone. I mostly use Android Auto to access WAZE. Sometimes it starts right up and other times it requires that I restart my phone or unplug the phone and then reattach the phone. It will also, on occasion, just stop and I have to restart it on the phone."

Ted D., DE (2016 Ford Edge SEL 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)
Backup or other camera/sensors

"Rear backup sensors broke on the way home from the showroom. After repair side sensors work well, but rear sensors work only part of the time"

"Throughout my 10 month ownership of this car there are on and off issues with the Sync 3 system, the worse of which is that the screen shows gibberish and freezes up until I turn off the vehicle and the system restarts itself. Ford has been unable to "duplicate" the problem when I bring the car for service. Ford simply resets and updates the software which temporarily fixes the problem"

In-dash navigation system (GPS)

"Repeat problem with SD Card Not Inserted error, even when the card is there. Nav information is YEARS out of date and never updated. Traffic information is poor and usually wrong. Re-routing feature forgets traffic problems if a wrong turn is made."

Anonymous, NY (2016 Ford Edge SE 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)

"The GPS in this car is out of date, cumbersome and not usable. It is missing streets and points of interest. If you don't know exactly what town something is in it cannot find it. It requires that you answer multiple questions for it to attempt to find something. If I were buying this car new, I would get Sync3 with no GPS and use WAZE."

Ted D., DE (2016 Ford Edge SEL 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)

"The NAV system will not route a trip on a toll road even though it's the shortest or fastest path. Ford said in late 2016 that they knew about the problem and a fix was coming in the next NAV software update, which would need to be done at the dealer. Every time I check with the dealer, they don't have a software update. Their responsiveness has been terrible. They have continued to demonstrate that they don't really care about the customer."

"It sucks. Can't find a number oc cities in Ohio and FL."

John H., OH (2016 Ford Edge Titanium 2.7-L V6 turbo)

"I wish I was able to pick multiple items from the list presented on the previous screen. The Navigation System is pretty much worthless. A majority of the time it doesn't give accurate navigation instructions. In fact, they are down right WRONG, and many times it has put me in an endless loop. Quickest and/or shortest routes are not accurate. I have come to rely on GPS apps on my iPhone such as Maps, Google Maps, Waze, etc. All of which are 100% better. The only problem is that the sound on my iPhone won't work when Bluetooth is on. So, I have to make a choice... Turn Bluetooth off and navigate with accurate GPS instructions in urban areas with sound and illegally use my iPhone (not hands free). Or, turn on Bluetooth to speak legally, and navigate with my iPhone GPS without sound. The voice activated navigation is clueless. Most of the time, not a single word I say is interpreted correctly (frustrating as hell). I have a very typical Midwestern accent, which I would think to be easiest to understand, don't use slang, speak loud and slow, and the navigation system still doesn't understand what I say. I could live without the Ford navigation System. But, unfortunately, it comes as part of the Technology Package which has other features that I like and probably wouldn't want to do without. The touch screen icons are confusing and hard to use while driving. Route information is not accurate. Places for stopping to eat are incomplete. The iPhone apps are free and upgrade multiple times per month also for free. The connection between Sirius Traffic sometimes works and sometimes not. Actually, it doesn't work about 99% of the time. All these items, and more, have been discussed in nauseating detail with my local Ford dealer without success. My two biggest complaints are the Bluetooth compatibility and inaccuracy. I'm told that's just the technology. The only relief offered, if you even consider it relief, is an upgrade CD at a cost $$$. No guarantee anything will get fixed, and definitely no Bluetooth fix. Bottom line... The Ford Navigation System is GARBAGE."

I told Ford service when I was in for maintenance, and was told their computer was down. On my next visit I asked again, and was told that many people had experience the same problem, but that HQ had said it was a problem with Ford servers. The problems have not been fixed. For instance when I was 80 miles from home, the GPS showed me one block from my house. After I back out of my driveway, the review camera remains on for 2 blocks. It can take several minutes to change the radio station. I am hoping that safety features are not affected. Now Ford has sent re a request to load new maps for this system that doesn't work, for $150 ( as much as a standalone GPS with lifetime maps)."
