2016 Ford Edge Overview

Data provided by Edmunds

The recently redesigned 2016 Ford Edge is a competitive midsize crossover that offers a spacious and well-trimmed cabin, composed road manners and a comfortable ride for five passengers. The Edge Sport further boasts aggressive styling and a strong turbocharged V6 engine. If you don't need a third row of seats, the 2016 Ford Edge is one of the best crossover SUVs for the money.

Dodge Sprinter? No. Ford Aspire? You must be joking. Chevrolet Celebrity? Please vacate the premises. There are plenty of automotive names that don't fit the character of the car. In fact, you might even say that's the norm. But the 2016 Ford Edge bucks the trend. The name fits because the two-row Edge balances neatly between segments, providing more interior space than a small crossover without being a three-row behemoth like its Explorer and Flex stablemates. Naturally, that gives the Edge an "edge" in the marketplace, as there just aren't many crossovers that can match it across the board. The 2016 Ford Edge is available in an array of eye-catching colors, including Electric Spice, shown here. Despite its midsize footprint and generous passenger and cargo room, the Edge feels tidy and maneuverable on the road. That's due in no small part to the improvements Ford made to the body structure and suspension when it fully redesigned the Edge in 2015. The result is a crossover that exceeds 2 tons but manages to drive more like a tall sedan. Throw in the all-wheel-drive Edge Sport's turbocharged V6 and you've got a seriously speedy crossover that can challenge some luxury-branded models. For 2016, the Edge also gets a new Sync 3 touchscreen infotainment system that improves on its polarizing MyFord Touch predecessor with a simplified interface and faster response times. Even so, there are a few competitors that keep the Ford from being the decisive victor in this segment. The recently redesigned Nissan Murano includes bold exterior styling, while the Jeep Grand Cherokee offers a fuel-efficient diesel V6 engine and awesome off-road prowess. The Kia Sorento one-ups the Edge with an optional third-row seat, and it comes in a wide variety of trim levels to suit different budgets. But if you're looking for a midsize two-row crossover that hits the sweet spot in most respects, it's hard to beat the aptly named 2016 Ford Edge.

Not all SUVs need to be the biggest thing on the road. Take the 2016 Ford Edge, for instance. It'll fit your family of four with room to spare and still fit into your garage with ease. It also boasts the latest technology, a smooth ride and a wide range of engines. Is it enough SUV for your needs?

The 2016 Ford Edge gains a new optional infotainment system called Sync 3. Variable-ratio steering is now available on the Titanium trim and standard on the Sport, which also gets a standard power-adjustable steering wheel and hands-free power liftgate. On the powertrain front, the 3.5-liter V6 is no longer available on the base SE, the four-cylinder engine gains an automatic start-stop function (FWD only), and the Edge Sport now comes standard with all-wheel drive. Every 2016 Edge receives a noise-reducing windshield and keyless entry and ignition, with the Edge SEL adding a standard power passenger seat.

Almost perfect

The only drawback to giving it all 5 stars across the board are the tires. These Hankook 19" P245 55 R19 flat out suck (F-). I have the optional 3.5 V6 engine and while not as thrifty as the Ecoboost, I live in a very hilly area and need pulling power.

My 2nd Edge great car Ford sync disappointing

I traded my 07 Edge in on a new 2016. The Titanium trim is great approaching that of a Lincoln. The best thing is the 2.0 Ecoburst engine. I am getting 23 mpg in the city ! My 07 Edge got 17 mpg is the exact same conditions. Surprisingly enough the rear cargo area is almost 6 inches longer than my old Edge. I was hoping to use my old cargo mat and it no longer fit. I find the Ford Sync 3 disappointing. I was told that it would get updated to the newest version that supports Android Auto and Apple Carply by the summer of 16. Here I am in Jan 17 with no update. My dealer says he can "force" it to take apps but that seems mickey mouse and would prefer the update which is out in the 2017 models. I can't express how disappointed I am in Ford for this lack of support.

Grandma's review

so far, my only complaint w/ the car is the location of the cup holders in the front console. They should be in front of the gear stick, not behind - as it is now, it is difficult to grab your water bottle.

Pleased with the purchase

I bought my 2016 Edge SEL last month. I elected to get the 3.5L V6 and really enjoy the acceleration it offers. I'm still on my second tank of gas and I am getting 21.7 MPG in a mostly rural setting. I haven't had the car out on the highway yet. The ride is good and the drivers seat is quite comfortable. Visibility is good except for the back right side- there is a large blind spot there. The stereo is average; I got sync3 and found it easy to use. I'm not crazy about the voice activated commands so I probably won't use them too much. The all season floor mats are a joke. Save your money and buy WeatherTech mats! Option I wish I had-the 2.7L ecoboost! I didn't want to spring the extra cash for the sport version.

Love my Edge

I was forced to buy a new car after my old one was totaled in an accident. I hate car shopping so I wasn't over thrilled to do it. Thanks to Edmunds car buying service and Phil Long Ford it was easy. I love the Ford Edge SEL. I handles like a dream and is easy to get in and out of. A plus was getting my 89 year father in and out plus there is a power port right next to the passenger seat for his oxygen machine. Love it.

Love My Edge

I shopped for a few SUV's, tested Escape and Honda CRV and both were too small for me. Then I tested the Ford Edge Titanium with all the options and it felt the perfect size for me. I even started out wanting the V-6 engine and tested both the V-6 and 4 cylinder EcoBoost and decided on the EcoBoost because the power was there and the MPG was higher than the V-6. The EcoBoost engine is so quite and has great power so I decided to go with that plus its the standard engine and the V-6 is a option over $600.00. I bought the Titanium Model with the Tech Package and 20 inch Wheel upgrade package and it has the new Sync 3 which is great. I think if you are looking at a Mid Size SUV you need to look and drive a Ford Edge.

Love this car

Owned this car for two months and 1500 miles. 2.0 turbo is an awesome engine. Not once have i stepped on the gas and wished for more power. It moves really well and pretty silent at that. This has to be one of the quietest vehicles I've owned. Ride is nice and absorbs the road well. Fit and finish is first class. Panoramic sun roof is nice as well as the sound system and technology. Much better than my Infinity that i traded for this car. Very intuitive and easy to figure out. Ford has done a great job with this car front to back its a winner.

High end feel in a mid range SUV

I recently purchased an AWD SE from my wife. I got to say that the overall value of the car is excellent. It rides like a much more expensive vehicle. There's plenty of room to seat five, and the interior of the vehicle Has high grade materials. I do wish that the SE model had the sync three interactive infotainment system. The 2.0 turbo seems to be plenty powerful enough to pass in highway traffic. The Michelin tires are decent. A bit underwhelming in weather. There is plenty of cargo space. I love the overall look of the vehicle and the led lights that complement the rear of the vehicle. I find it to be a great value in the middle d size suv segment.

This car gives me a headache, literally

I have never had this issue with a car before. I loved my last Edge and my other vehicle is a Ford F150 which I love. The 2016 Ford Edge Titanium has a vibration to it that sounds like buffeting from having the rear windows open. If I ride in this car for more than 30 minutes I get a nasty headache. This is the worst car I ever owned.

I purposely shopped for a car without the $3000 added navigation. I use the WAZE app for free and it is more useful. This car is a rocket ship, very responsive, quiet and the moon roof is huge. First 1000 miles loving it...

Fancy new car

So far I am very happy with my Ford Edge. Another coworker bought one the week before me and we've both noted that they are very zippy. The Edge has the power to take off right away which is helpful getting into traffic and is very smooth. The steering wheel feels good and everything seems to be in a place that makes sense. The hands-free technology is great with the bluetooth connection to your phone. You can make calls/receive calls and hear texts without being distracted. The lane assist is helpful and there are so many camera and distance auto-detect features that if you get into an accident it will be your fault not the car's. The distance auto-detection is helpful when pulling into tight spaces like a packed 2-car garage. The quality of the interior is excellent. I think the Ford technology package is better than the Acura's where the user interface is blocky. The kids love the feature to swing their leg under the back to get the cargo hatch to open. My only minor materials issue is some of the plastic edging on the rear door feels sharp and could be smoothed a bit. The heated/cooled seats and climate control is great. Both of my large dogs fit into the cargo area so they never have to sit in the back seat. I felt that I got just a good of a vehicle as the Acura MDX without the cost.

Ford Edge delivers comfort and quick acceleration!

The Ford Edge Titanium 2.0 Eco boost is amazing! Great acceleration and roomy interior. I have been a Honda girl for 32 years. I drove the CR-V and was disappointed in the lack of acceleration and road noise. The Honda Pilot was just too large for my needs. So I started my research and realized the Ford Edge was in the top 10 best SUVs in Consumer Reports. The other high ranking SUVs were very nice but larger than what I needed. The Ford Edge has a potential of reaching 30MPG which also played a role in what I wanted in my SUV. The redesigned body and interior is very classy and as nice as the high end SUVs! Plenty of leg room and good cargo space. Cabin is pretty quiet. Visibility is great! AC is cold with good fan speed options , and it has vents for the back seats as well. I paid extra for the panoramic sun roof as in my previous vehicles, I used my sun roof as often as the weather would allow. I love it! You will not be disappointed if your purchase the Ford Edge! Ford has done a fabulous job bringing this vehicle to the top 10 SUVs!

They keep getting better

This is my forth Edge so I guess I like them. There is one thing on my new 2016 Edge that I could do with out and I find it DANGEROUS. The model I have has the new kick under the rear bumper to open the tail gate. If you step in to far to get something and your foot hits the sensor it comes down on your head. This has happened many times. I was taking fishing rods out of the back and stepped in for a better grip and the tailgate came down. I had to move fast so they did not get broken. I asked the dealer to disconnect it and was told you can't. After owning 4 Edges I was hoping they would put some rear bumper protection on top of the rear bumper to protect it from taking things in and out.

Great car for the money

Ford has improved the touch screen from previous years model. Really great little car. Smooth and quiet on the highway and easy to maneuver in the city. Not crazy about the limited direction of the front a/c vents in the center, but not a huge deal. Lots of leg room and head room for taller people. Has a really solid feel to it. Overall very happy with this purchase.

Best 5-Passenger SUV Ever

Edmunds drop-down menu does not allow me to select the exact vehicle I bought, which is a Ford Edge SUV, Titanium, AWD, naturally aspirated V6. - I opted for the 201a package as I did not want the lane assist (i.e., a friendly nudge when one changes lanes without using the turn signal; who needs that?). This is the nicest vehicle I have ever owned. The engineers at Ford really thought of everything. Every detail is just perfect. Air conditioned front seats (three levels of a/c). Front and rear heated seats. Synch-3 interface could not be easier to use and the graphics are easy to see and beautiful. The Sony stereo will rattle the neighborhood (but I don't do that, I'm a normal person). The acceleration is fantastic. Placing you foot under the bumper lifts the automatic lift-gate, which is also height-adjustable. There are three memory settings for different drivers to select from for the power-driver's seat (with a button to choose 1,2, or 3). Also a power passenger seat. Ceramic perforated leather is extra comfy and breaths easy. Adjustable lumbar support and adjustable head rest. Ergonomic layout of the dash and interior is superior to any other vehicle I've ever been in. Height of vehicle makes it easy to navigate through traffic. You will notice the quality of the vehicle build is superior from the first time you drive the car. The 19-inch tires contribute to some slightly noticeable cabin noise, but it is not enough to complain about. The Vista-roof is awesome and easy to adjust to the position you desire. You can adjust the color of the LED displays via the Synch-3 interface (the door sill has an LED "Edge" display which can be adjusted to the color you want, etc.). Plenty of room in the cargo area and rear seats. I got rid of the factory carpet floor mats and bought some WeatherTech all-weather mats (which fit perfectly). The car came from the factory with a nice rubber floor mat for the cargo area. The car is beautiful and the ride is superior. One review I read dinged the Ford Edge and recommended some Korean-made Kia... bwaaahahaha. [non-permissible content removed]. I'd rather have my Ford Edge (and save $20,000+) than any luxury SUV. I did lots of research and compared the Edge to similar vehicles from Toyota, Honda, GMC / Chevy, Subaru and Jeep and selected the Edge and am extremely confident that I made the right choice. The engineers at Ford really did their homework. Great job.

Quality not cost

This crossover feels more expensive than it was. Leather interior is top notch, large comfortable seats all around. The new sync 3 system is very intuitive and easy to use, navigation works like a charm. 4cyl engine is sufficient enough this a family car not a race car folks. Handles well and we are really enjoying this vehicle.....highly recommend it.

Nice Ride

I have had my 2016 Edge SEL 2.0 for a few weeks so I don't have a full review yet. I had test drove the V6 but bought it with the 2.0 4cyl. I was concerned about engine vibration on a 4 cylinder but its not a problem and the car rides quietly and shifts smoothly. For normal driving the 2.0 is more than adequate and I came out of a V6 Murano.
I want to correct Edmunds stats. The fuel recommendations for the 2.0 is regular fuel not below 87 octane as per the users manual, premium is not needed.

Space Age Technology in Your Car

We looked at a variety of smaller SUV's... downsizing from an 11 year old Tahoe Z71. We waited for the Ford Edge 2016 to gain the Sync 3 and Drivers Assist package. The Sync 3 is very easy to navigate. My son has a 2015 Explorer Sport with the Ford Touch and it's not near as user friendly.
I must admit it was a bit unnerving the first time I started to change lanes on the freeway WITHOUT turning on my turn signal and then have the steering nudge me back into my own lane. Now I remember to use the signal. LOL.
The Edge is an extremely quiet ride and the interior is nicely appointed with soft surfaces everywhere. We got a Pearl White Titanium AWD with all the options with the Ceramic interior.
We special ordered the Edge and it was well worth the wait.

6 day Edge Titanium Rental

I just finished a six day rental of a '16 Ford Edge Titanium with the Ecoboost 2.0 4 engine, driving it from south Florida to northern Georgia (mountains), down through the west Georgia boonies where The Walking Dead is filmed, then back south. It averaged 28 - 29 mpg on the open (highway/interstate) road, 22 mpg in town per the fuel economy computer. Not bad - gas mileage is better than a 2013 Toyota Highlander that I drove for awhile.

The performance of the Ecoboost 4 engine is pretty impressive, considering the weight of the Edge (4000+ lbs) vs the small size of the 2.0 liter engine, and it does move it along pretty well. However, if you've carrying a load of people & luggage in a hilly area, you’ll sometimes wish you had another 15 ponies and 20 pound/feet of torque on tap. With a full load, this engine in this vehicle gets the job done, but you won’t have a lot of reserve power to spare.

To be fair, compared to the POS '14 Ford Edge rental I drove two years ago that had a brutally punishing and miserable ride, the '16 Edge is a big overall improvement from their new Sync 3 system (great!) to the relatively improved ride, seat comfort, braking and handling. It was very strange, however, that this loaded Titanium didn’t have a navigation system!!!! Nearly a $37k MSRP car??? Huh???

This being said… this ’16 Titanium didn't close the deal for my family for a purchase, and here’s why:

It rode pretty smoothly and fairly quietly only on the most glass-like asphalt road. I don’t know where some Edmunds reviewers say that this SUV is soooo ‘quiet” – it is NOT, and on some types of macadam and asphalt roads, the road noise is surprisingly LOUD. Obviously, these reviewers must be deaf, happy Ford fanatics, or previously drove Yugos or 1950 Ford pickups.

On any other road surface than smooth asphalt, the ride was frequently nervous and bumpy on all but the smoothest of surfaces. The car thumped and bumped over minor broken pavement, you felt every imperfection in the road through the steering wheel and your seat.

The road noise from the 19” Hankook 245/55R19 Venus S1 noble tires (set at 35psi per the manufacturer's recommendation) and through the vehicle’s floorpan was a bit excessive, especially since this was the Titanium model. I shudder to think how the Edge Sport must ride and sound with it's even lower profile tires/larger (20") wheels.

Frankly, we were surprised and a bit shocked at this after reading all of the glowing reports from Edmunds reviewers about the "smooth ride" on this new Edge. Ummmmmm, NO. Maybe these people think that a SUV/crossover HAS to ride stiffly and with pronounced road noise. No, they do NOT have to be this way.

For these reasons, these observations were definitely NOT my definition of a ‘Titanium’ level in my opinion, and the probable deal breaker for a potential purchase.

With the improvements in automotive industry suspension and sound reduction technology introduced over the past few years, there is certainly no excuse for Ford not producing a smoother riding and quieter crossover than this new top of the line Edge. Perhaps the Edge SEL might ride a little better (and a little quieter) with it's 18” wheels & tires (I recently learned that you CAN order an Edge Titanium w/18" wheels & tires). If so, a ‘16 Edge SEL could be worth a serious look if you're looking for a quieter and smoother ride.

In the meantime, I suggest that Ford needs to talk to Kia, and closely examine a '16 Sorento. I rented a lowly '16 Sorento LX w/V6 a few months ago, and it was definitely a quieter, smoother riding, and faster (V6) SUV than this '16 Edge Titanium, and at a MUCH lower price. Don't take MY word for it - rent one from Avis or Enterprise for a few days like I did, and wring it out. If you own a new Edge, you may be a bit upset after driving one of these SUVs.

BTW, the '16 Sorentos in EX & SXL trim are even quieter, more comfortable, and ride about as well as their lower trim LX, despite having 19" or 20" wheels & tires!!!

Overall, the new Edge is a bit of a disappointment for a SUV we really wanted to like. Back to the drawing board, Ford – Kia can get the job done with their Sorento, so, you can too. Try again!!

What a Great SUV!

I don't use words like great and awesome very often when describing cars. However, these words describe my 2016 Ford Edge Titanium. At least so far. My wife and I are in our 60's and we decided to trade our larger Explorer for something smaller that was easy to drive around town, parking lots, and shopping centers. We wanted the SUV to look great both inside and out with plenty of technology and still maintain the internal room we needed. We did not need a third row seat. We looked at the Nissan Morano, Chevy Equinox, and Jeep Grand Cherokee. After driving the Edge my wife said this is the SUV for us.. We purchased the 302A package which gives us an abundance of safety features and upgrades. Sync 3 is so much easier to use. The touch screen is easy to see and navigate through and the voice commands have a much quicker response. The Edge is very easy to drive with an upscale looking and comfortable interior and a great design on the outside. MPG has been around 20 primarily around town with the 2.0 liter Ecoboost fwd engine and 20 inch wheels. The acceleration and power are very smooth and adequate for what we need on a daily basis..If you are looking for a Mid-Size Crossover I would highly recommend test driving the new Edge.

Nice SUV...But...

I have owned the 2016 Ford Edge SEL 2WD for about three months, traded in a 1999 Ford Explorer so modern technology like this a first for me. I can not speak for reliability because it is too new. I have taken the Edge on two trips from Florida to Pennsylvania and coast to coast in Florida. All trips were straight through, 17 hours of driving each way. My review is mostly negative as I expected much more thought put into design for the money you spend. The driver seat is very comfortable, never had an ache (drove straight thru to PA both times). The interior overall is nice, no complaints on material except headliner color choices. Vehicle very quiet with windows up. Windows down...very noisy. The steering wheel is either too small or door armrests too narrow. I like to drive with left arm resting on armrest and holding the wheel, can't do that in the Edge. Steering wheel controls need a bump or each shaped differently. I have to continuously look at them when using as I cannot tell which my finger is on, they are all shaped the same and feel the same. I do not like the feel of the steering, my arm actually gets fatigued. Guess I prefer the "Cadillac" feel, nice and easy. The one touch window is a bear to just open a crack. The radio and climate controls straight forward and easy to use with the exception of the steering wheel tuning. It scrolls through just the current favorite channels. In other words, you can program so many stations on channel one, channel two and channel three but can only scroll stations on channel one if that is the one radio is on. You cannot scroll all channels, have to select channel two on radio to then scroll those. My Chevy you can scroll all by using steering wheel controls, very nice feature. Navigation...where do I start with this. Was VERY excited to have this feature, first ever for us. Well, it has gotten me lost three times and my house/street are not even listed...can not find. I live in an established neighborhood built in 2001 yet my street is not listed. The street leading to mine is and you can see my street on map but it is not named. I have found this with several places I have traveled, streets not listed and yes, my settings are correct under options. I was told if it ever gets updated I would have to purchase update, it is not free. The other part I do not like is the vehicle has to be stopped to search a destination by typing. It's ok to scroll through everything on the radio, settings, station search, look for restaurants, etc. while driving but cannot type an address. I have settings set to take fastest route and on a trip in FL, it mapped the long way home, not the quickest. Very poor navigation system, we use our smart phones to verify before we trust it. Last I'll speak on the engine. I have the 2.0 I-4 turbo, wish I went with the six cylinder. There is a very distinct hesitation in the engine which I did not notice when test driving. If you are pulling out in heavy traffic or going to pass, hang onto your heart because it takes about 1 second after mashing the accelerator before she goes. Very scary finding that out the hard way! Took it to the Ford garage and they said it was turbo lag and nothing can be done. Also find the engine noisy and hear tapping constantly. And speaking of noise, the radiator fan extremely loud. I'll end on a good note which was the main thing I was looking for, love the cargo space in back...

Porsche Cayenne for way less

I actually test drove the Porsche, Audi, BMW, Lexus and Audi analogues to the Ford Edge Sport. Saved not less than $15,000 (and more like $25,000 for comparably equipped) and the Edge is every bit as much the 'driver's car'. Steering is a little on the light side but extremely responsive. Acceleration is very strong (coming from a current Mustang GT Boss owner and a former Audi S4 owner). Brakes are solid and while I haven't beaten them up too much, they don't seem to fade even under hard use.

Fit and finish is generally very good but not quite up to the Lexus or Audi standards. Unless you walk around the car with a ruler though, you probably won't notice any real hiccups. We bought a completely decked out model so it has pretty much every bell and whistle. All seem to work well but you'll need to spend some quality time with either the user manual or your dealership to figure it all out. The major control are straightforward and can be controlled by either real buttons or the touchscreen. I highly recommend the adaptive cruise control. It's a little freaky at first but not having to constantly jigger your speed is a very pleasant experience.

My only negative, and it's not a big one, is that we sprung for the 21 inch wheels. They look great but I'm not excited about the Pirelli Scorpion tires. They are a little on the noisy side and I'm not super confident with their wet traction (then again, I live in Arizona so not a big issue here). If I were to do it over again, I'd stick with the 20" wheels and thus protect my rims from curbs.

Overall, unless the reliability becomes an issue, I don't think you can go wrong with this car.

At about 4500 miles, an "adaptive steering fault - needs service" light came on. it went off. then, a day or two later it came on again. i took the edge into norm reeves ford in cerritos, ca to have them "service" the adaptive steering. they told me they could find no problem. a week or so later, i took it back to norm reeves ford and they kept the vehicle for 13 days told me they couldn't "replicate" the problem. now, a month later, the light stays on. i have read on the "ford edge forum" blog that others are having the same problem. some are saying that their vehicles have been in the shop over a month and ford seems unable to fix the problem. others mentioned that the service department told them that the problem could be dangerous. i have contacted ford's regional customer service manager for the california area. so far, ford seems to be ignoring the problem.

Summary:

We purchased a new ford edge 2016 sport on september 18, 2016. on october 25, 2016 we received a message indicating “adaptive steering fault service required.” later that same day, the message did not appear on the driver display. however, on october 26, 2016, we received the same message: “adaptive steering fault service required.” we went to a local ford service department (in concord, ca) and they performed electrical testing for steering warning messages. their test appeared to be inconclusive and they cleared all codes and road tested the vehicle and it appeared to pass inspection. however, just today, november 1, 2016, we received the same message again: “adaptive steering fault service required.” we immediately took the vehicle to a local ford service department so they could see the error message and they did not have answers, even after pulling the codes. they will be communicating with the "ford" hotline and in contact with "those who manufactured the vehicle." from what we understand, after researching the issue online, that this may be a major safety issue and we are extremely concerned as steering ability may cease and the car may stop functioning. other ford edge drivers are having this issue. this is of grave concern as it is our primary car that we use to transport our children in daily. our online research leads us to believe this is not an easy or well known fix as the adaptive steering in the 2016 ford edge is new technology. we intentionally purchased a new car to avoid any major issues for some time, so we are extremely frustrated and disappointed with our ford purchase. the most important concern is the safety of our family while riding in this vehicle.

I was parking on a side street with about 2200 miles on the car. the dashboard lit up with adaptive steering issue warning light telling me to take it in for service. i thought the car had died, but after a restart, it seemed to drive ok and i put it up to a one time computer glitch. i was 70 miles from home. i almost forgot it happened but after returning from a long trip, it happened again. i went to the forum and saw others had the same issue. and they mentioned that it sometimes effected the steering itself. sure enough, the next day, the wheel turned 90 degrees to left. i was stopped at the time. the car was driveable but went straight with the wheel turned 90 degrees to the left. very disconcerting, to say the least. the warning light was back on, of course. i had to get into twon so proceeded carefully. i filled the tank, and after the restart, the wheel straightened out and warning light went off. the wheel turning has not happened since, but the warning light comes on at least twice per day randomly. i am reporting this as a safety issue with the adaptive steering. i am scared to drive my new car.

Summary:

While driving at a high rate of speed (70mph) on a major highway, my car lost power. i tried pressing the gas pedal, but there was no response. it was a very dangerous situation, since the care lost speed quickly, and i was driving in the far left lane and had to navigate to the right shoulder in rush hour traffic. it was also very dangerous because the car broke down in detroit. i was able to get to the shoulder, and restart the vehicle to try to get off the highway. while trying to get to a better location, the car lost power two more times, while in street traffic. again, very dangerous. since this is a brand new ford edge (2016), with under 10,000 miles, it was taken to the dealer, who found a defective throttle body assembly. they replaced the throttle body assembly, and because there is still no recall on that part, it could very well have been replaced with another defective part, leaving me at risk again for injury, or worse. while investigating the issue, i found that several other people have experienced the same issue, dating back to over a year ago. here are links to other throttle body complaints: http://www.carcomplaints.com/ford/explorer/2016/engine/loss_of_power_while_driving.shtml http://www.aboutautomobile.com/complaint/2015/ford/edge/engine
