2017 Ford Edge Sport - Ruby Red Metallic


Recommended Posts

Our Kia Forte was totaled around the end of January. We were looking for a smallish SUV. The top contenders were Jeep Compass and Mazda CX-5. I looked for Crossover/SUVs with Turbo Charged engines and this popped up. It was right at the top of our budget but I figured we could at least test drive it. I found a local Edge Sport in white to test drive before paying CarMax to transfer the red one. One wide open pull out of the parking lot was all we needed to decide on this car. We didn't even test drive anything else. The 2.7TT EcoBoost is amazing and with 29k miles, it's nearly new.

I asked them not to touch the paint but they still put the bow on it. The hood is covered in scratches/swirls but so is the whole car. I knew it would need polished anyway. I plan on correcting the paint and using Graphene Ceramic on everything. I only had time to hand wash and spray wax before we left for the weekend but it cleaned up well. CarMax has to fix a few issues (see flaky paint below, hoping for a repaint) before I work on polishing and coating. I can tell it's going to look amazing when it's all cleaned up.

CarMax will be fixing the chipped/flaky paint along with all other scratches/chips/dings including curb rash on the wheels. This will delay my paint correction and Graphene Ceramic Coating but I will have a way better starting point when this is all complete. Stand by for before/during/after pictures.

Got the car back a couple weeks ago but I just found time for a quick wash. I used the Red Unicorn Soap and dried with Cyber Monday Cranberry Detail Spray. It needs polished so bad. I cannot wait to find the time. Hopefully next week/weekend. I also debadged the back hatch. No more junk stuck around letters!

Nice color!  I have been researching at these lately - like the size and look.

Go for a Sport/ST. The power is awesome. 315HP/350TQ. First boosted car, twins are awesome lol. It hurts the mpg but I wanna go fast lol.

 

I had only driven Ford work trucks and the quality in those is crap. This car is so nice though. We love it. The size and looks were huge selling points for us as well.
