Hello everyone,  MAC T here and I am starting a new topic called double edged.  The situation is as follows:

I currently own and drive two Ford Edges. This topic will be used to follow two 2011 Ford Edge Limited as they both experience usage in opposition.  The Blue Metallic 2011 (MOMOSHA Car) driven mostly city driving and virtually no highway vs the Cinnamon Metallic 2011 (work car) which will be driven 95 percent of the time on interstates in long haul driving situations. 

 

How will each one handle the different driving conditions?  What repairs will result in the greatly different usage?   Time will tell and it will be documented on this topic.

 

Note: The documentation of most repairs will be on video.

Not to rain on your parade, but what about the 75k and the 92k miles on the vehicles.  That maintenance from day one should ultimately have some effect on any future maintenance or data.

 

Interesting none the less.  I too own two edges, a 13 and a 14, both limited, both bought new.  I could share the data of the effects of a husband vs a wife driving will do to an edge. :hysterical:

Depends on your perspective.  Not everyone on the forum buys a brand new ford edge.  Maintenance is the key.  My last Ford Edge was purchased at 60K used.  I think it did rather well considering it was used as a rental prior to my purchase.  Most new edge owners do not worry much about repairs as they have the warranty.  This topic will cover those owners that purchase the used Edge and have to take care of the maintenance/repairs on their own with no warranty.

I look forward to your input when you start repairing your Edges yourself.  Keep us advised on your progress.

Cabin air filter replacement is most likely the most neglected filter in your Edge.   The filter replaced was most likely the original filter which was never replaced by the previous owners.   The original owners most likely did not do much as far as maintenance.  So a note do not trust Ford Certified cars too much, because if they neglected this in their "inspection" what else did they neglect?  Anyway watch the video.

Took the 2011 out to have the transmission flushed out.  You can see that going 150K before changing your transmission fluid is most likely not the best choice.   Watch and see what your fluid actually looks like at 92K miles.  I will be flushing the 2011 Blue very soon and then see a comparison at 76K miles.

I should be replacing the 2011 Ford Edge rotors and pads in the next week or so.  I have already purchased the four rotors and ceramic pads for a total of $402.00.  I expect shop fees and a few minor incidentals to complete the work. I will also be covering a closer inspection of the noise dampeners attached to the brakes.  Here is the video of the unboxing of the the Duralast High carbon steel rotors and ceramic pads/kits.

I'm a longtime mechanic and have always relied on forums for the best advice.  Two babies in three years forced my hand to buy new vehicles.   Subscribing to this so it doesn't get lost years from now.  Keep em coming!

Wish I could afford new edges.   I just drive too many miles to pay for new vehicles.  The used edge is a great value and reliable.  Keeping the fluids changed makes all the difference from great to junk.

After reading this I checked my owner manual. It stated that the xmisn fluid should be changed at 60k.

Are you saying I am not NORMAL?  LOL  I will be changing the Blue soon.   350 miles on the Cinnamon today and it coasts better and shifts better.  I may start a 50K change routine on the Cinnamon, matter of fact I will. I did  not like the looks of the fluid on the Orange Crush or the cinnamon at 90K.

A truth that is self-evident needs no further representation ;)

Are you saying I am not NORMAL?

A review of the Torque mount from Anchor Mfg.  Sending it back because it will not fit the 2011's

I'm betting there's just a teensy bit of a chance the OEM part far outstrips this aftermarket replacement.

Moog sway bar link review.  Fits the 2007-2014 Ford Edge.  I like this link as it does not require the Akirby tool!!!

This is something I am definitely going to have to do ASAP.
