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 smell of gasoline vapors were detected when ever the vehicle was parked in the garage. We took the vehicle to the Ford dealer ship and it was determined by a Ford technician that the fuel tank is leaking. The fuel tank is a two piece steel design that is welded together at the seem. The welded joint is corroding and caused the leaking. The vehicle has never been in a accident nor has the fuel tank had any maintenance conducted on it. This fuel tank was an oem part and installed by the oem only. Ford has indicated they do not have any replacement parts available, and do not have a supplier to manufacture replacement fuel tanks.

Gas tank is failing. Tank leaks due to sever rust, and along seams of tank. Also leads to a strong odor of gas inside and outside of vehicle. This is the vehicle we use to Transport our children. I've. Noticed fuel on the floor of my garage, big puddle. Very unsafe.

I bought this 2007 Ford Edge new and it has been kept in a garage the entire time I have owned it. I noticed a smell of gasoline while it was in the garage and took it to have it looked at. We found a 2 inch rusted hole in the top of the gas tank. Ford claims no other similar problems have been reported and has refused to do anything about it. Although I have found numerous forums from people that have the same problem. I believe this to be a manufacture defect and a potential fire hazard.

Strong fuel odor present inside and outside of the vehicle. After fueling noticed a steady drip from fuel tank. Brought vehicle to private mechanic and was told fuel tank needed to be replaced as it showed evidence of corrosion on the top of the tank. Ford has been notified and will not assist with repair nor will they admit it is a design defect or acknowledge other complaints for faulty fuel tanks. It is not normal for a fuel tank to rot on a 6 year old vehicle.

I was just driving down the road and heard a loud noise and days later started smelling gas and looked underneath the vehicle only to discover that the gas tank split and started leaking.....contacted Ford Motor Company and they refuse to fix it or recall it. I can't afford to get a new tank that cost $2,300 and Ford recalled the 2008 models for this reason but refused to recall the 2007 models....I am very angry because as it is I am getting about 10 mile to the gallon on gas and only able to put about 4 gallons in the tank at a time and drive around every day worrying if I would ever get into an accident god forbid I would maybe blow up because of the leaking gas tank on this vehicle...

Gas tank seal corroded. Mechanic was inspecting car when he found that besides the transmission transfer case needed to be replaced, the gas tank was leaking gas. It appears the seal is corroded. I was told that the new tank was approximately 1500. (just the part) and about 600. In labor. I feel that this should be repaired free of charge by Ford, this should not happen on a vehicle that is only 6 years old. I can only put about 5 gallons of gas in, not to exceed just under the half tank mark. Also, cannot park car on anything but a level surface.

Edge 6-cyl

  • 121,000 miles
After driving the vehicle for approximately 80 miles one Saturday morning, my wife parked in the garage as usual. I entered the garage after the car sat for about an hour and detected the smell of gasoline. Proceeded to inspect the vehicle and determined that the smell was coming from engine compartment. I continued to investigate the source and eventually found what appeared to be fuel seeping from the fuel rail, also known as the fuel supply manifold. I concluded that the fuel was leaking in the area of the test port which is connected to the rail. I could tell that fuel was leaking at the point where the test port is connected to the rail. I had the vehicle towed to a Ford dealer, and I was told that the fuel rail port was not repairable and a new fuel rail was required. This was a dangerous situation as gasoline could have leaked out onto very hot engine parts and potentially cause a fire.
