Newbie (1/14)

  1. I have sold my Edge, but realized I kept the factory floor mats and left the all-weather mats installed. These are factory sealed in the original plastic bag. $75+shipping or best offer. These should fit any 2006-2014 Edge.
  2. SOLD! I have since sold my Edge, but have a full roof mount kit that 100% works for 2006-2014 Edges with the Vista roof. I ran the roof rails with my Vista roof for about a year, but only used the crossbars and bicycle mounts once. They are in perfect working and cosmetic order and include all documentation and extra parts. I have even installed Thule compatible locks and will include all keys -- this is a must have for any Thule kit to prevent theft of your bikes and equipment. I was able to install these and open the Vista moonroof all the way up with an inch or two of clearance between the glass and the bicycle mounts. Without the bicycle mounts, there is several inches of clearance between the crossbars and the Vista roof. I decided on this setup based on a review on these forums. Since I've sold my Edge, I no longer need this equipment. You can buy each component or everything. I will list prices for each. I have about $1000 invested in this setup. OEM Ford Edge Roof Rails. Will fit 2006-2014. $100+shipping 2x Thule Aeroblade Edge Raised Rail (L). All parts and manuals included. - $300+shipping for both - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009NN8MD2/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1 2x Thule Thruride 535. One is configured for the left side of the car, the other configured for the right side. They can be mounted to any cross bars, but the Thule kit has an easy on/easy off option. All parts and manuals included. - $350+shipping for both. (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00FSRO6ZA/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1) All set up: Thanks for looking! Let me know if you have any questions!
  3. Took mine in today for this issue. They have to order the part and replace the shifter. I have been seeing sometimes the remote start does not work. Ford said this problem and the "shift to park" problem were related.
  4. Upgraded my '13 to v3.8 tonight. Took about 35 minutes. The screen seems faster, but I haven't noticed any additional features. I was able to connect to my home WiFi though, not sure if that's new. Is there a list of new features somewhere?
  5. Thanks for taking the time to make the video and tutorial. I would normally do the same to my '13 Edge 2.0L, but I'm getting ready to upgrade to a '16 Explorer Sport 3.5TT.
  6. I love how the Sport models have body colored grilles. I have a Limited, so my grille is chrome like most others. Has anyone painted their grille to match the body color?
  7. I use Adams Paint Sealant and Adams H20 Gloss and Guard every other wash. Works great!
  8. This is something I hate about drive by wire. My Cobra has a good ol' throttle cable and when you hit the gas it just goes. No delay. In my Edge, if I floor it to pass or merge, there's a good delay before it picks up. It's annoying.
  9. I get better performance and MPG with premium fuel. The 2.0 has great power for its size and better low end torque than the V6. I don't get the 30mpg advertised fuel economy on the freeway. I think I'm closer to 27mpg at 75mph.
  10. Bump, great thread. I asked my Ford rep for a quote on the roof rack kit. The Thule crossbars are $400 for both. And a single bike rack is $200. This got expensive, quick. Hoping a local shop can do better.
  11. My fun car is a 2003 SVT Cobra in Sonic Blue.
  12. Use synthetic fluids. Use a sealant and a wax to protect the paint in the harsh weather.
  13. I use Adams SuperVRT for the black trim, and Pinnacle Souveran for the paint.
