Hi Guys.....So Im about to buy an Edge Sport. I would really appreciate some advice as to which year I should shoot for (or maybe avoid)  ..At the moment In thinking a 2016 model  because I read that that year had some good upgrades. Im thinking somewhere in the $30K range...but please let me know if I should be considering other years I do want the 2.7 Twin Turbo engine. Thanks!

2016 worked out most of the 2015 kinks, and added Sync 3. <-- that alone was enough for me to wait for the 2016 MY.

I agree with Burrcold. I had a 2015 that had none of the reported problems but still would advise to go with a 16 or 17. I now have a 17 Sport and the Sync 3 is quite an improvement.

I never owned any other "sync" before the 2016, so i have nothing to compare it to... yet i find sync 3 to be absolutely awful. not sure what i was expecting, but i'm not impressed with it whatsoever. 

 

but as far as other advice, don't settle! get the one you WANT, with the accessories you WANT! I waited and waited, looked at a million of them until I found the perfect one for the perfect price. BRAND NEW 2016 in june of 2017, for $33,500 out the door. there are people paying that price for used, so I scored big time. 

 

some people care about the wheels, heated/cooled seats, hid lights, vista roof, etc.. just make sure you know which options you can live with/without.

What's so awful about it?? What are you comparing it to that's so much better?

The first line in my post says "i have nothing to compare it to". I suppose when you are used to smart phones, the whole sync platform seems mostly unreliable. so far my issues have been mostly with navigation. it doesn't properly calculate a route for "shortest" or "fastest" it just makes it up as it goes (so it seems). there are times that i know where i'm headed because i googled it the evening before leaving, and it takes me the long way around. when i ignore sync directions i usually arrive several minutes faster. on a recent 177 mile trip, i ignored the first half of the directions (because i had an idea of where i was headed) and i shaved off 33 minutes from its "arrival time". 

 

traffic/travel link does not work at all. fuel prices and weather work fine. dealer has no clue what the issue is. 

 

sometimes when speaking into nav the search results don't have what i'm looking for unless i input it manually. like saying "Cabela's" and it has no idea what i'm looking for.

The navigation definitely is not the greatest. Any time I need reliable routes I just use Apple CarPlay.
