I would highly recommend the edge. I looked at several other SUV's before I found this one. ( Flex, Pathfinder, Highlander and Pilot) In the end, it came down to my preference for how the new edge looks and handles. I drove all of the vehicles I considered many times. It was love at first 'drive' when I got behind the wheel of my new Edge. The only SUV that I would put in this same class when it comes to performance is the BMW X5. I love that vehicle but didn't want the cost of maintaining it over the next few years. No worries with my Edge!
The sync system is amazing to program and use. The controls are so easy to understand and operate. The dash looks like a luxury vehicle to me. ( I'm super picky too. lol )
Ok small SUV for the money - ok value
2012 Ford EscapeKevin - Murfreesboro, TN04/16/2015
Lackluster acceleration, moderate-to-poor gas mileage, poor transmission, and a few too many rattles in the passenger compartment. My mileage average over the last year has at best hit 24mpg even though it is rated 24-28mpg. I've never - EVER - hit 28mpg even on a long term flat highway drive to DC and back to Nashville.
have also had problems with transmission since nearly day-one. Initially started as a recall, but even after having that fixed the jerkiness of the ride is sometimes uncomfortable.
"Escape" to a great vehicle!
2016 Ford EscapeLuis Rosario - Winston-Salem, NC07/11/2016
Drives like a nimble sport sedan turned into an SUV. Classy upscale styling inside and out. Interior space is just right with back seat folded down. Great visibility upfront with large windshield, and good view all around with rear camera and large side mirrors. Nice soft touch surfaces where needed, and good cloth seat surfaces.
