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 #1

Jul 162008


  • 17,000 miles
The contact owns tech international valve stems, model TR413. On July 16, 2008, while driving 65 mph, the tires blew out. The contact moved to the side of the road and replaced the tire with a spare. He took the vehicle to discount tire and the mechanic informed him that all four of the valve stems were defective. The mechanic also stated that the valve stems were included in a recall. Tech international stated that they would only reimburse the contact for repairing the tires if they had been replaced instead of the originals. They advised him to contact Ford. Ford confirmed that they were the original tires and would be unable to reimburse him because they were not the manufacturers of the tires. The tire manufacturer stated that they could not reimburse him because they were not the manufacturers of the valve stem. The serial and part numbers were unknown. The failure mileage was 17,000 and current mileage was 19,000.
