In 09/2009 I had a accident with my 2007 Ford Edge, 35 mph rear end collision. I was amazed how little damage was visible. No leaking fluids, All head lights and fog lights were intact. I was able to drive the car home myself. The Car in front of me was Towed from the scene. I had my seat belt on, although my Air bags never deployed. That was a lease, 2months later, I bought a new 2010 Ford Edge of my own. All Drivers were reported to be OK at the scene by Paramedics, no one needed medical care, that was good. I Consider the Ford Edge a VERY Safe Car, well built and fun to drive. I will recommend a Ford Edge to anyone interested in a SAFE & WELL BUILT CAR.
