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.

CarComplaints.com 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.

The computer malfunctioned causing engine coils to burn. Ford did not extend the warranty for this common defect. But Ford did extend the warranty for the subsequent malfunction of the catalytic converter, which was caused by the 1st malfunction described.

One morning my Ford started running rough.a rough idol. Shaking in the body. The check engine light started blinking. I took it to a mechanic that morning to check the computer. The mechanic stated it read as a bank one miss fire.I replaced the bank one coil and spark plug from the mechanic. The car still drove rough.I was on my way to the the dealer the next day, three or four miles away, when the car shut down on the highway between two busy exits. I lost power and control of the vehicle. Thanks to the state police, I was pushed to a safer location.I was towed to the dealer from there.I wasn't told the power-train module needed replacement until after all the coils and spark plugs were replaced two days later.

While driving on a city street and on a state road transmission will act and sound like it is slipping or not engaging in gear and sometimes will only work in reverse.when problem occurs vehicle will lose all power and engine will rev up but vehicle will not move. I have had it towed to dealer and have taken it in to dealer, they say they cannot duplicate the the problem. They also told me that when it happens I need to pull over somewhere safe and shut the car off and let the "computer/ sensors " reset and that will "take care" of the problem. The problem is getting progressively worse as time goes on. I am afraid if this happens in traffic someone is going to get seriously hurt or killed as there is no power to get off the road and out of traffic

My car started sputtering on freeway on christmas night. Smelled burning. Had it towed to my mechanic. He informed me ignition coils burned out. He replaced them but called today and informed me, car will run fine and then one or more coils will burn out again causing the problem. He looked complaints up online and found hundreds of them as I have also. We called the dealership to see if there was a recall on this issue because there were so many complaints but nothing. (I found out I had 2 other recalls I never got a notice for.. great)... reading the complaints below from customers who has had the exact problem is worrisome because the dealership is aware of the issue but still has done nothing to fix this. My car is still in the shop. If this can only be fixed at the dealership as described by other complaints, I am screwed as this is very costly. Ford should be replacing this as this is a known issue. I never bought a Ford due to their reputation and I gave them a chance. I see why now... I only have 69,000 miles on it....

Edge

  • 135,000 miles
I was driving my car on the road and the engine stalled with no warning and the car cut off. After waiting about 10 minutes, the car started and I was able to move it to the side of the road. The check engine light didn't come on until after the car initially cut off. I tried to start the car again about 20 minutes later and it wouldn't start at all. Finally, after a couple of hours the car started, but the check engine light was still on.

Edge

  • 45,000 miles
The heater core fails approximately every two years causing the Edge to overheat. Ford has replaced the heater core three times and it failed again after 22 months, however, they are saying it is out of warranty now and they will not cover the cost of replacement. Ford is aware this is an issue with the 2007 model and has received other complaints. I am concerned the overheating might carry potential engine fire danger.
