    Beware of the Adaptive Steering. Evidently it has design flaws, software flaws or both. And apparently FORD can't fix it. I have had our 2016 Ford Edge Titanium in the shop several times when the "Adaptive Steering Fault - Needs Service" light came on. Since it came and went, the dealer couldn't "replicate" the problem. Even after having the vehicle in the service department for 2 weeks.
    Now the light is on... and stays on. I plan to take it back to the Dealership tomorrow but I don't hold out any hope that they will be able to fix it.
    I have read on the Ford Edge Forum blog that many others are experiencing the same problem and they are getting nowhere with FORD.
    Again... stay away from the Adaptive Steering. Which means... don't buy the Edge Sport. It's standard.
    Better yet.... stay away from FORD.
  • I wanted to follow up on the Adaptive Steering Fault problem. It appears it only effected first "off the line" Edge Sports and Titanium's with that added feature like ours. Our dealer found they couldn't get a delivery date on replacement parts so they cannibalized a brand new Edge Sport and put the new steering assembly into our Edge.
    It has been working flawlessly thus far, even after a recent LA to Las Vegas trip.
    So, we once again LOVE our Ford Edge. And the Adaptive Steering, when working like it should is a really really nice feature. I especially like the "Sport Mode".

    So... I have changed my turn. Give the Edge a look.
