Ford edge: family friend or foe?

The ford edge 2008, is a vehicle I bought that allowed me to have a larger vehicle than a car but without sacrificing the gas mileage. My first test drive of this vehicle surprised me when I was able to accelerate easily again similar to that of a car but with a larger size. The second row of seats offers comfortable and great leg room for my tall, long legged family members. With children it allows sufficient room for two car seats yet still space in between for a smaller individual to sit or kids supplies. The rear holds amples of space to store or carry items needed without risking the passengers space or design. To offer more room for large items, the back seat folds flat allowing room for carting large breed dogs or moving furniture or bikes. My only problems with the vehicle have been items affected by the recall. First was an exhaust recall which I experienced for many years with a cracked exhaust pipe. I spent many visits and unnecessary monies seeking dealership help for repair with no reprieve. Finally, after many rides with mechanics one was able to pinpoint and repair the problem. My second issue has been the airbag recall that has shrapnel risk. The recall was issued a few years ago with only recent options for repair. While calling for this recall dealerships imply ford is not providing any for the edge model. Huge risk driving kids around with shrapnel risk. Finally, my transmission blew 4 years ago. I had a transmission company rebuild one and has worked ok since then but the switch between rpms seems slightly off. I am told this is due to the first recall mentioned.

My vehicle is really awesome

I have had this truck serviced at great expense since it was new and usually ahead of schedule. If ford service said it needed something I did it. If Ford service said it might need something I did it. I am now at 87k miles and had my High Pressure Fuel system go out. Ford dealer is telling me 10K dollars. Telling me I have purchased bad fuel but when they took a fuel sample there was no water in the fuel. So now Ford won't stand good for their product, the insurance probably won't pay for it because there is no evidence of contamination, and that leaves one option. I am going to be out 10K dollars. Not to mention at a time

Family vehicle that is good for travel.

The Ford Edge is a good car for long distance traveling. The comfort for 4 people is high and will get around 23mpg when highway driving. The gas mileage is not great for city driving and stays around 19. The v6 engine is enough to get around and has decent acceleration for weighing over 4, 000 lbs. The limited version has leather seats and the 2008 has either a back up camera or backup sensors that help when parking in tight spaces. With so many Edges on the road parts are easy to come by if something needs to be fixed. The large vehicle might no be a need or good for some drivers.
