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.

2012 Ford Edge Owner Comments

problem #3

Sep 222014

Edge 6-cyl

  • 41,185 miles


While driving at less than the posted speed limit, we heard an explosion from on top of the vehicle. Saw glass pieces sliding off roof. Upon visual inspection we saw the vista sunroof had exploded. The glass exploded along the perimeter of the retractable sunroof. The center of the glass was still intact and there was no visible sign of impact. Nothing hit the glass. Given the perimeter glass damage, it appears the glass was compressed inward somehow. This is a vehicle defect.

Edge 6-cyl

  • 16,700 miles
Driving home on 78 from Julian and heard a loud pop pulled over to the side of the road and saw that the sunroof over the back seat had exploded. Luckily the grand kids weren't the back seat the glass stay intact. Took the car to heller Ford where we both it and explained what happened. They said they have never heard of this happening before, something must hit it and it is our responsibility to pay for it. We are waiting for the glass to come so poway glass can re place it. Then we will see if Ford is going to pay for it.

The contact owns a 2012 Ford Edge. The contact stated that while driving approximately 10 mph, the entire back panel of the panoramic vista sunroof exploded for no reason. The vehicle was taken to a dealer where it was advised that the entire rear panel sun roof needed to be replaced. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The vehicle was repaired at the consumers expense. The approximate failure and current mileage was 36,000.
