Well, before you guys grit your teeth in anticipation, LOL, Consumer Reports LOVED IT!
As a result, it is one of our top-rated midsized crossovers.
It tested out at 82 points and $40k, compared to a Land Rover Discovery Sport with 58 points ($50k).
The Edge's handling is reminiscent of an Audi Q5, while also providing ride comfort approaching a Lexus Rx. Fot those unfamiliar with suspension engineering, this is an almost impossible feat.
They tested an SEL with the 2.0.
When I heard that their test Edge had the water leak problem, I thought that they would rip the Edge for that. Seems like they talked to Ford about it, and it is not mentioned in the review.
So, they say that the only reason they do not give the Edge a "Recommended" Check-Mark is because it is a new model with no Reliability history. They do that with most new models. We'll see how prevalent the problems really are when they do their survey.
