If you're looking for the Goldilocks of CUVS, the 2012 Ford Edge is it. Not too stiff yet far from being a marshmallow, the Ford Edge's ride and handling strike the right balance between car and SUV.
Outside of the Sport model, the Edge can't tear through turns as well as some more enthusiast-oriented CUVs (think Mazda CX-7 and Acura RDX). And, despite its many attributes, a fold-away third-row se
Whether in the city or out on long stretches of open highway, the 2012 Ford Edge never failed to live up to our expectations. Power is readily available making passing, merging and even climbing steep hills a snap. There is no fuss from under the hood, no straining or lagging upshifts, just smooth linear power delivery. The Edge's steering is bit heavily weighted, but it is precise and the vehicle displays good handling characteristics, with minimal body roll and sway and a surprisingly smooth ride, even with the larger wheel and tire package.

Pros: "Smooth ride with tons of room"
Cons: "None that I can think of at the moment"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"Overall our 2010 Edge has been a great crossover. It drives likes a car and has tons of room comparable to any mid sized SUV. The interior could certainly be improved (which it was in the new 2011 model) but is perfectly fine and comfortable. Other than a new battery and a minor sensor glitch, we've had no problems with our Edge and are completely satisfied with its versatility and quality. There isn't much to say other than you really can't go wrong if you decide to buy one new or used."

Pros: "Average driving experience."
Cons: "The console takes up too much space. SYNC sucks."
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 1
"2010 onboard SYNC is a joke, usually does not work, cannot understand English and cannot locate the cell phone. Transmission was rebuilt at 11200 miles. When they dropped the transmission they found a broken bolt inside of it. Kept the car three days to work on it, under warranty. At <13500 miles the transmission is slipping again and will be going in for service. This is not acceptable, I am a gentle driver using the vehicle only locally. My main complaint, aside from mechanical, is the huge front seat console that takes up so much room."
