Interested in purchasing an Edge with the Vista sunroof, but wondering how the summer temperatures in Oklahoma will heat up the interior of the vehicle. It doesn't seem like the sunroof cover would provide much insulation from the heat. Has anyone had any problems with cooling the vehicle in the summer?

Can't be any worse than Atlanta, and it wasn't a problem last year. The glass is tinted and I don't find it to be any worse in the heat than any other vehicle.

Driving down a california freeway, good weather, no overpasses, no close traffic and the vista roof shattered. The corners and all around the edges broke.
Ford denied any liability. Had the care about 2 months. Repair estimate is up to $4200 due to the amount of damage to the paint. The roof glass as well as the side panels need to be replaced.

I've seen reports on the Internet about Vista roofs shattered/exploding. How common a problem is this? I was very tempted to buy an Edge with a Vista roof but seeing these reports have backed me off.

All vehicles has problems with shattered glass - windows, back glass, sunroofs. It's not always a manufacturing defect. I haven't heard of this being a common problem.

#14 of 16 Shattered Vista Roof - 2010 Edge

After a year and a half of owning a 2010 Edge, my daughter and I were driving down the highway, traveling at approximately 63 miles per hour. We both heard a loud noise as if a balloon had popped on the ceiling, only to find that the front portion of our sunroof had shattered --- away from all 4 corners of the roof.
We had not met any vehicles coming from the other direction and no one had passed us.
Anderson-Ford Lincoln Mercury in Grand Island, NE, did NOTHING to help us with this -- "Corporate Ford" said there was nothing they could do as it was considered a "window" issue.
We have since traded it off and bought a brand new Dodge. I will never buy another Ford as long as I live with the poor customer service we received.

Like I told you on the other forum - a glass failure after a year and a half is almost certainly caused by some impact at some point. That's why you have insurance. You'd get the same answer from any other mfr.

With tempered glass it takes little more than a small nick on any edge to result in hundreds of small pieces of glass. Did the "failures" produce this result?
If so, the likely cause is a nick that occurred on an edge when glass panel was open. Something as innocent as a very small pebble in the track could cause such a nick.
