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.

2016 Ford Edge Owner Comments

problem #4

Vehicle traveling on interstate at 70 mph. Suddenly vehicle lost power which resulted in loss of power steering and acceleration, but instrument panel still had functionality. Had to coast to side of interstate with no throttle and came to a stop. Vehicle still was on but no acceleration. Turned off vehicle and restarted, throttle worked. Took vehicle directly to dealership were throttle body was replaced. Service states this problem has been common. This is a very dangerous issue that needs to be addressed. Luckily no accident occurred because of loss of power on interstate.

Vehicle mileage - approximately 5300 fuel level approx. 3/4 full fuel line connection separation, causing fuel starvation to engine, engine stoppage, loss of power steering and brakes. Enroute 25 July 2016 on us hwy 64 from durango, co to taos, nm, cresting 10,500 ft mountain pass, starting downgrade, vehicle started to misfire, fuel smell, fluctuating RPM between 1500 and zero, then engine stopped, losing power to steering and braking, making it difficult to safely pull to a stop. Fortunate to locate a level pull-off. Upon exiting vehicle, observed strong fuel smell, but no fuel leak in engine compartment or under vehicle. Opened fuel tank filler cap and vented with filler tool. Attempted to start vehicle without success, but strong fuel smell and fuel spill generated under the vehicle. Pushed vehicle away from fuel spill. Attempted to start vehicle a second time without success, generating another fuel spill from cover panel under LH passenger. Removed cover and found outboard of the two fuel lines separated at connection. Reassembled fuel line connection, believing the connection to be secure. Successfully restarted vehicle and re-secured cover panel. Proceeded to destination, but with approximately fuel level, indicating that approximately fuel level lost during fuel line separation. Upon reaching destination, removed LH cover panel to re-access fuel line connections. Pulled and released fuel line connection, reassembled connection, pressed the green locking tab and pulled connection to ensure it was secure. Upon return home 28 July 2016 dealer service technician inspected fuel line connections, found them secure, added tie wraps to both fuel line connections to prevent green locking tab from disengaging unless tie wraps are removed. 29 July 2016 call to Ford customer service stated this was a non-issue since service returned vehicle to user.

Vehicle has repeated delays when pressing accelerator petal followed by sudden bursts of power. While changing lanes on an interstate highway there was no response in acceleration and power was lost. Rapid, aggressive petal pressure restored power after 10-14 seconds. Crash narrowly averted.
