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.

Edge 6-cyl

  • 45,000 miles
My 2012 Ford Edge continues to alert as I am driving that my driver side door is ajar when in reality it is not. I have video of this because it distracts me as I am driving due to the red alert posted on the panel along with the high pitch beep/alarm as the warning. I than have to continually hit the reset button with my left thumb in order to silence the warning until it starts all over again within seconds. While researching this problem, it seems that it is very common within these Ford vehicles. It would be greatly appreciated if this could be addressed as a recall. This has been a problem with my vehicle for many months now. One stage observation is that the aforementioned malfunction becomes occurs much more often once the temperature outside exceeds 65 degrees or higher for some reason.

Edge

  • 60,000 miles
The warning light and sound for the driver door being ajar comes on and stays on. The interior light stays on while driving because of this and will stay on after the car is off and doors are locked or unlocked. I've taken it into the dealership to have it fixed and was told it was simply the sensor needing to be cleaned. After I had it fixed and paid to have it fixed, the problem began again about two months later. I've found that this is a very common problem with the Ford Edge and owners are having to pay to get it fixed.
