Had an 07, it was a nice ride, it was the wife's and she loved it.
Only issue was twords the end of the lease the rear brakes started making noise. it was a ridge that built up on the outside edge of the rotor cuz the pad stopped about a 1/2 inch from the top.

How many miles did you guys have on your Edge's? We are looking at something pre-owned with about 20-30k miles on them.

We have an '08 AWD and we love it. My wife is very impressed with it and feels very safe driving it in the crap weather and snow storms of Western, NY. Not a single repair aside from routine maintenance and brakes at 60,000 miles.

The wife has one a 2010, only a 2WD but seems to be a good ride, only issue we had so far is a steering sensor failure. Had to take it to the dealer twice for them to detect it.

We had an 08 Limited model and my wife loved it. We had about 24,000 miles on it when we turned it in from the lease. We turned it in almost a year ago and she still pouts about it every time she sees one. They didn't have a decent lease rate on them and the residual was too high to make it worth buying out. We now have a Mazda CX-9 which is supposed to be built on a similar platform. It's a nice ride too but it's a little bigger. I would have no problem buying a used Edge with those miles on you are looking at.

My wife bought one last year, there is another thread about them on here as I was asking questions of those who owned them as well.

My Mom also has one and loves it. It rides very smooth ride. And the all Glass roof is bad azz..
That is the big thing she misses. The Vista roof and the Sync system for making and taking phone calls is much better than the Mazda.

I work in a Ford Service Dept, and from what I have seen they are well built and for the most part trouble free. The AWD PTU had an issue with leaking in that age range, and the rear wheel bearings go out quit often, as side from that no real major issues. If you get the Chrome wheels, keep them clean, they are prone to pitting and discoloring from lack of cleaning.
