2018 Edge

Recommended Posts

Travelling. In Seattle, got a new Edge for the week. Seems solid, very quiet and extremely smooth. Seats are hard to get out of (side bolsters too high). Not crazy about Sync 3, phone synces, but no voice with Google Maps. Great brakes, excellent acceleration.

Your comment regarding the seat bolstering is interesting, what trim was it?

I believe (not wanting to assume) that Omar is asking which edge did you get? I.E. Sport etc

Drove hard today in the mountains. Avg 23 mpg. Has Hancock 19's. Not completely smooth, but not too bad. Great brakes, almost too good.

Ok, got about 1000 miles of driving on the rental. Strange buzzing, rattle driving me nuts. Can't seem to pin down where it's coming from. Passenger thought it was coming from the consul. Don't care for the radio (not Revel). No goodies, can't park itself. Don't like having to use touch screen for (nearly) everything. But tens for temp +/- too small. Getting 23.0 in Cascades (mostly I-90 at 80 mph). Great beer in local brewerys. Great food in Cascades. Visited Rosyln where they filmed Northern Exposure. Know the moose in the opening credits? He was stoned. Guy had a banana tied to a stick and walked around town. Moose loved banana's and followed him all over town. That scene was filmed at 3 an. Couldn't take down the Rosyln sign, so the changed it to Rosyln's Cafe. Totem pole is still there. Local kids had no idea how long it was there, old timer told us the crew of show made it. Sad the kids who grew up there had no sense of their history.

 

If you're ever in this neck of the woods, up around Snoqualmie Pass there's a place called "The Commonwealth". Stop. Great food and locally brewed beer. Really great food. They will make any sandwich vegetarian. (My son). He loved his sandwitch. I loved the beer which is brewed next door. I had a sausage sandwich and the sausage is made locally. Made two trips.

Also visited the site where they filmed Twin Peaks. It's in North Bend, Wa. The cafe shown is a real greasy spoon. Love Washingon. Great people, great attitude, very friendly place (except for Seattle proper).

Oddly enough you are not the first person to complain about interior rattles here on a 15+ model.

Hmm. Still no rattles on my 2007. And I drive it pretty hard. Not as hard as Xtra, but pretty hard.

You want rattles? Loan it to me for 10 minutes.

 

I swear, if I bought a new Edge and had that scraddle, I'd rip the damn thing apart until I found it. I hate scraddles (squeek/rattles).
