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.

problem #6

Edge SEL 3.5L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 156,325 miles


I bought this Edge used. I had it for two weeks and it started to make a shudder. Took to Ford it cost me $135.00 to get checked. I was told torque converter was bad (the guy told me that they knew about this problem back in 07) I don't have the cash to get this fixed.

Update from Aug 9, 2016: according to the ford tech says its the torque converter or the oss sensor no matter how you look at it ford knew this cuz its also in the flex an the focus cost $1.500 plus reprograming fee 250.00 to 450.00

Edge SEL 3.2L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 120,000 miles

This always occurs when turning left from a dead stop, while pulling away. The car shudders and engine detunes for a few seconds. The "anti skid light" comes on just long enough to know what it is then goes off. This can be very serious problem since we live off of a busy state highway, and we need to get out there and get going or risk being rear ended.

Edge SEL 3.5L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 70,000 miles

I purchased my Ford Edge SEL in July of 07' and overall have been pleased with it; however, we started having shuddering problems while driving in 2011 at the 70,000 mile mark. I took it to a reputable Transmission shop locally and he ran a test. He hooked up the computer and (we) took it for test drive. After warning me of all the bad transmission shops in town and about 12 miles of inner city and open road driving, he looked at me and said "its not your transmission!". I'm no mechanic but there is still a problem and I would sure love to know what it is.

Edge SEL Plus 3.5L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 65,000 miles


The transmission shudder is an intermittent problem. It can occur as I slow to make a 90 degree turn and has also occurred as the transmission shifts to a higher gear at 40 to 50 mph. Has been going on for almost 3 years. used be every 2 months or so. Now seem every 2 week or more frequently.

Really like this vehicle otherwise.

Edge SEL 3.5L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,621 miles

I own a 2007 Ford Edge 2007 Edge SEL FWD purchased on 02/21/2008 new. Having problems with the Transmission it seems to shudder when traveling speeds of 3-55.It is apparent when your applying the gas you must release the gas petal or the transmission will get stuck and will not allow you to move out of a speed or downshift. I have taken the Edge to 2 dealership and the most famous words I hear is �TEST DROVE, NOT ABLE TO DUPLICATE. This is after having my Edge for more than 8 hours
