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.

I have owned multiple vehicles and never had a problem like this. I bought a 2008 Ford Edge in Nov 2011. By June of 2012, I had water pouring into my vehicle through the dash onto my vehicle floor. My mechanic said that the condensation drain was clogged with leaves, which caused the water to rise. The water shorted out the motor for my fan, so my whole motor had to be replaced. Now I am having this problem again. The only people I know of who have had this issue are Ford Edge owners. Due to owning various makes and models of vehicles and never experiencing this problem and from internet searching, I believe this is a defect with the Ford Edge.
