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.

My husband was traveling I-40E at the ft. Smith junction about 50mph when he heard a very loud bang in the right front. Thinking it was a blowout, he braced and then a very loud repetitive thumping started, he said he was kind of floating around the road uncontrollably while this was happening, then he heard another loud bang and the vehicle stopped as though he hit something that allowed him to continue moving at a slow rate of speed the was pulled into the barricade wall of the bridge. Upon inspection, the tire had com;letely fallen off and laid down on its side and the vehicle, just between the passenger front for and wheel well, had landed on the wheel. The highway patrol was contacted and I was called to the scene. I observed a long metal bar snapped in two, as well as the strut. The spring was also laying there. The collision was on the right front corner infront of the wheel well.
