    Did someone had to ORDER their Edge?

    although i like the new ones, if you offered to give me either set, i would take the '16 ones. i really like those ones. let me know if you want to get rid of them

    looks gorgeous. hope you enjoy it for many years to come.
  3. okay, got it. thanks. i misunderstood.
  4. are you saying that the climate control was not functioning or just that you didn't see it displayed on the panel? i have noticed that when remote starting the car, the various indicators like seat heating and AC don't light up but the seats are warm or the AC is working. it's bizarre and i've wondered why this is so but it is what it is.

    New Edge with 20" wheels, ride sucks HELP

    the ford.ca (i'm in canada) website lists the following sizes for the SEL, SE, Titanium, and ST respectively: 245 60/18 245 55/19 245 50/20 265 40/21 as you can see, there are four different wheel diameters available. They all have a tire diameter of 29.6" except for the ST which has a diameter of 29.3" the car's dynamics are very much affected by wheel diameter, offset, and tire width. braking for example is much less effective with a larger diameter tire. simple physics and geometry. ABS, traction, stability are all affected by geometry that is different than stock. it may be true that the internal parameters in the system may have different settings but for the purpose of the OP's question, he does not need to change anything for the new tires if he got tires that are a standard factory size.

    the whole idea of larger wheels is that the tire has a shorter sidewall and conversely, the smaller wheels have tires with taller sidewalls. the overall diameter, and thus the circumference, is the same on all edges from the factory no matter what the wheel size is. go to https://tiresize.com/calculator/ and plug the old and the new tire/wheel sizes into the tire comparison tab. that will give you the circumference which should be the same. if it's the same then the wheel will rotate the same number of times in a given distance and your odometer and speedometer will be correct.

    Car theft experiences?

    i have arlo cameras. you can set up the hub and/or your phone to make an alarm when the cameras detect motion. you can also set up zone on the camera so it only activates when people step onto your property but not walking by on the sidewalk. plus it's free to record and it's stored for 7 days.

    Double Honk when Locking

    ah, i assumed that you meant lock for both cases. so you're saying that it double honks when you unlock it? it isn't even supposed to honk at all with a single tap to lock it. just out of curiosity, i went to my garage and opened the hood of my edge. i clicked on lock and no honk. i unlocked and no honk. so i doubt it's that. i have had cars in the past that used the honk when locking to indicate a fault with the alarm system. i'm wondering if that's the same with the edge.

    Double Honk when Locking

    i assume you mean "locking" the car rather than unlocking as you have written. from the user manual: Mislock If any door or the luggage compartment is open, or if the hood is open on vehicles with an anti-theft alarm or remote start, the horn sounds twice and the direction indicators do not flash. You can switch this feature on or off in the information display. have you checked the hood and hatch?

    Hi guys, Italy here!

    Is the basic sound system amplified?

    all sound systems are amplified. otherwise you wouldn't get any sound. the question is how much i.e. how many watts.

    Hi guys, Italy here!

    i stopped by a ford dealer in barcelona a few years ago to check out the euro-edge. i liked many of the features like fog lights and the stainless strip across the sill under the back lift gate. ours are cheapo plastic. i also liked the placement of the LED "signature lights" around the headlamp assembly much better than down on the bumper that we have here. be sure to post some pics when you get it. i'd also like to know what reaction you get when driving it. i think it's still pretty rare in europe, no?

    2016 Edge Transmission Hard Shifting

    i never tried disconnecting the battery. i just let the dealer deal with it.

    2016 Edge Transmission Hard Shifting

    maybe the OP didn't but i did. at my last service, they reset the memory or programming for the transmission and that did the trick. transmission is back to normal now. apparently disconnecting the battery is not enough. it has to be done with their computer.
