Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety. Notes: Say what you will about the styling of the Ford Edge, but the bottom line is owners seem to love this vehicle. That is, of course, except in the case of it's dangerous, worrisome and unexplained issues with random engine stalling.

Our data suggests an early defect trend, as owners of the 2007-2008 models have started posting their accounts of what happens when you're driving down the road and the engine just stops. Some at high speed, some at low speed but always a random shutdown of the engine, electrical and power steering.

Time will tell if this becomes a widespread issue, but there's no drying the seriousness of the problem. With that in mind, we're flagging the Edge with our "Beware of the Clunker" rating until the situation improves.

2007 Ford Edge Owner Comments

problem #3

Edge 6-cyl

  • 113,000 miles


The passenger side door will not unlock with neither the unlock button on driver door nor the push button on my key fob. All other doors will lock. When my son has a seizure next to me and I pull over to assist, I cannot get him out of the door. He is unable to unlock the door himself of course. While he is having a seizure I have to try to pull him out while he is having his seizure through the driver side door to assist him. This gets very dangerous for several reasons. Especially while on the side of the freeway.

Door latch stuck on rear door behind driver. I had to continuously lock and unlock until the door lock would unstick so I could close the door. This worries me in the case that an accident would happen and the door would be stuck and I couldn't get my child out.
