Hello I Don’t Want To Waste Time Going Into Detail Without Knowing Whether Someone At ford Will Get This…so Let Me Just Say That I Have Been With ford Since 1988 When I Bought A Bronco. In 1992, I Bought An Eddie Bauer Explorer And Have Had Explorers Up Until This Past Year When I Bought Your Crossover, The edge. It Is A Nice Car, Rides Nicely But Has A Lot Of Road Noise That I Did Not Experience With The Explorers. My Biggest Concern/problem Is That The Speedometer Is Tucked Deep Into The Right Hand Corner Of The Dash And Can Not Be Seen During Most Of The Time While Driving. Seeing It Depends On How The Light Is Coming In. I Have Caught Myself Going 80 And Not Realizing It Since The Dial Is Just One Big Black Circle. During Rain Storms, The Lights Come On, The Red Indicators Are Lit, But The Speed Numbers Are Lost In The Dark. This, I Believe, Is A Serious Safety Issue. I’ve Been To The Dealer And They Say That There Is Nothing That Can Be Done. I Have Never Had A Car Where The Crucial Speed Dial Can Not Be Seen. I Think That Your ford Engineers Goofed On This Design. The Tach On The Left Side Is Always Visible….but Not The Speedometer. Can You Help With This Problem? Thanks For Your Time. *tr

The Instrument Panel, Mainly The Speedometer, On My 2010fordedge Is Very Difficult To Read Under Some Daylight Conditions. The Gauges Are Dark Gray Background With Black Number Graduations While Lights Are Off And Red Needle. Especially During Dawn And Dusk Conditions With A Cloudy Sky, Shortly After Sun-up And Shortly Before Sun-down, While Sky Is Still Quite Bright And Roadway Is Darkening, And Your Driving Facing The Sun, The Speedometer Is Very Difficult To Read. A Quick Glance Shows Only The Red Needle With Dark Background. It Takes Close To 5 Seconds For Eyes To Adjust Before Numbers Can Be Read And You Can See Vehicle Speed. Situation Is Not Improved When Lights Are On During These Conditions. Numbers Turn From Black To Green With Illumination And There Is Not Enough Contrast With Gray Background During Daylight Hours To Improve Condition. On Rainy Days With Dark Road Conditions And Sky Is Somewhat Brighter, The Same Condition Exists, Especially When Driving Towards The Sun, Even Though It Is Cloud Covered. It Takes So Long For Eyes To Adjust So Speedometer Can Be Read That You Could Run Off The Road Or Into Someone. Also, Under Most Daylight Conditions, The Metric Scale Is Impossible To Read, Regardless Of How Long You Try To Focus On It. *tr

    My mom has an edge 2010. We would like to keep it but for the lighting to the speedometer. It only has 47k on it (for that year this is great).I know it should be a recall as so unsafe. Have tried a few things but really not feasible. Just shame to buy another new car when otherwise trust it. Any ideas?
