  I found the difference between the two modes to be most noticeable at slower speeds, especially while parking.

 

That's exactly what it was designed to do - make it easier to steer at slower speeds such as while parking.

I find it also requires more effort to turn the wheel at higher speeds which I like. I find my self over correcting a ton on the Normal mode VS Sport. Coming from a car with a hydraulic rack I feel more in tune with the car in the Sport mode.

 

@Quila it is always on just different levels of how it changes. It is only off when it fails.

I understand that it's always on when it's enabled, I just notice it most when I'm parking.

 

I just think that there's a small risk of hitting something if you're maneuvering into a tight parking spot when the adaptive steering fails and you suddenly find yourself back in normal steering mode.  I often don't have the luxury of finding a big open parking spot with no obstacles to avoid, so there's usually not much room for error.

Yeah I get you that would suck I can happily say that after my new wheel I have not had one single fault but where I started getting faults was after I went on a 2k mi road trip and that will be again soon so will update if anything happens on that trip.

New steering wheel resolved all the fault issues. I quite like the Adaptive Steering functionality at low speed. Ford has a video (on the F250) at my dealer that shows how the AS works - they quote a 30% reduction in steering wheel turning effort at low speed.

Here is a video I found on the Edge AS. Not as good as the F250 video at the dealer but still informative. The F250 video might be under the F250 section. I didn't realize there is multiple AS versions. I thought only Normal and Sport but you can select Sport in Sport mode and gain another level of AS handling/function. View the video to see.

Same issue for me but now with a new twist.  Took it in 3 times, last time they said they did a software upgrade.  Was good for a few days then error message came up again and came on everytime I started it.

Last week, I started the car and backed out of a parking spot.  Put it in drive and started to pull away, then notice something wasn't quite right.  Realized the steering was 90 degrees off - the top of the steering wheel was 90 degrees to the right.  Everything else was the same.

Left it with the shop this morning.  They were puzzled, to say the least.

Otherwise, great car!  Hope they can figure this out.

I had to have the steering wheel replaced.

2016 Ford Edge Sport.

Had a courtesy car for 3 weeks...

No problems so far since the wheel was replaced. The steering wheel isn't as loose when turning now.

The steering wheel was turned left 90 degrees despite the wheels being straight. Turning off and on the car no longer reset it.

Had to visit the dealership when it happened. The error message needs to be on when you visit or else they will probably ask you to come back when it happens again so don't turn the car off until they see it or you risk the error going away the car self fixing itself upon turning back on.. at least initially.

It's been about a year since the steering wheel assembly was swapped from a new Edge Sport into our Edge Titanium.
 

Fixed. No problems. No lights.  The Edge runs and rolls like we had hoped.  We are very happy now with our purchase.

 

And I do love the adaptive steering... and the adaptive cruise control.  I really like that on our trips to our son's home in Arizona. Between that and the lane keeping system, the car almost drives itself.

 

And you get the best gas mileage when you use the adaptive cruise control.

 

Anyway... after months of hassle... it did get fixed.  And it appears the new vehicles coming off the line have the issue fixed.

 

Happy driving everyone!
