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.

On December 12, 2014 Ford mailed a safety recall notice to my attention regarding NHTSA recall 14V-682 regarding corrosion of fuel tank mounting brackets. I was told that this letter was for information only and that I would be contacted when parts were ready for the repair. We are approaching 10 months since the letter was mailed and I am still waiting for Ford to contact me regarding the availability of the needed repair parts. As I live in the northeast and salt is used extensively on the roads during the winter I do not want to go through another winter with this issue be unresolved.

Edge 6-cyl

  • 70,000 miles
The speedometer stopped working, two or three warning light on the instrument panel came on, the car lost all power. I would only go forward with the gas petal pushed to the floor. It's a known issue, found out from youtube many people have had the same exact issue. It's an intermittent issue that happens when the vehicle is on the road creating a hazardous situation for everyone. Here is what is known about this issue. Technical service bulletin 07-3-11 6F50 transaxles built prior to 1/1/2007 - dtc P0715, P0717, P0718, P0720, P0721, P0722 and/or harsh engagement, no upshift, fifth gear only. Some 2007 Edge and mkx vehicles equipped with a 6F50 transaxle with a transaxle build date prior to 1/1/2007, with any output shaft speed (oss) sensor or turbine shaft speed (tss) sensor diagnostic trouble code(s) (dtcs) P0715, P0717, P0718, P0720, P0721, P0722 and/or harsh engagements, no upshift, fifth gear only, could have an intermittent short in the oss or tss sensor. Ford knows about this flaw and common problem and there is a tsb, but no recall. This is the problem that is causing the symptoms in the video.
