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

Apr 212008

Edge 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 7,801 miles


I was driving, and when I went to press on my brakes, they were pulsating, because you could feel the anti-lock braking system kicking in. The car seemed like it didn't want to stop. After I stopped, the ABS and traction-control light came on in the car, and they have been on every since. I have an appt. For a repair at the dealership tomorrow. I wanted to make the NHTSA aware of the problem.

problem #1

Feb 202008

Edge 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 150 miles
The contact owns a 2007 Ford Edge. When the vehicle was purchased, the front passenger seat failed. The vehicle was at the dealer for three weeks to repair the seat. The bolts in the seat were visible and injured one of the passengers. The dealer replaced the screws and covered them with a rubber seal; however, they continue to fall off and expose the screws. At 150 miles, the lining in the moonroof fell off of the vehicle and was replaced by the dealer. Six months later, while driving approximately 5 mph, the contact heard a loud grinding sound when he depressed the brake pedal. The dealer diagnosed the failure and stated that the brakes were corroded. The brakes were replaced and the rotors were cleaned. The front and rear windows do not grip or seal properly when they are rolled up or down. The dealer diagnosed the window failure on four occasions and eventually stated that they had to change the paper on the rollers. The two rear exterior lights continue to fill up with water. The dealer diagnosed the failure on three occasions and replaced the tail lights; however, the failure continued. There seems to be a design failure. On several occasions, the gear shift failed to engage in park, drive, and reverse. A passenger had to stop traffic since the gear shift was locked in reverse. The failure recurred on February 20, 2008; however, the dealer stated that the earliest they could schedule an appointment would be on March 1, 2008. The failure occurs intermittently and has been in the repair shop every other week since it was purchased. The contact is the original owner. The dealer has offered no assistance in replacing the vehicle. The contact was advised to only have the vehicle serviced by a dealer that is one or more hours away from her residence. The failure mileage was 150 and current mileage was 8,000. Updated 3/25/08
