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.

The air condition stop working in my car. I had a new compressor installed 2012. The air condition unit still does not work they flushed the line and ran dye to see if I had a link and check the fans. No link in the line. I have had my car serviced by dealership and no one can seem to find out why this occurring. During the day the air does not work, the fan is running and hot air is coming out of the vents. You can hear the fan click on hard when your idling at a red light. If I roll the windows down, the air will appear to get cool. When you pickup speed with the windows down the air begins to get cold, but once I close the windows the air stops becoming cool and hot air blows. It's been extremely hot and I can have a heat stroke and I have high blood pressure. I have to arrive to work at 7am while it's cool outside and leave after 7pm when the sun begins to go down. This is horrible to pay > $30K for a vehicle and the air condition does not work. I'll never buy another Ford again.

Purchased a 2007 Ford Edge sel plus on 8/31/07. Had less than 50 miles on it. For the last 3 weeks since I've owned this vehicle, I've been seeing red fluid on the ground where I've parked. My husband brought the car to Ford this week and the repair receipt shows "ck red fluid leak, right center firewall area. A/C drain dripping on exhaust bracket causing red rust". it turns out the bracket is rusted from the A/C. the service guy at Ford said he's never seen anything like it. He told us we should avoid the rusting by not parking on an incline. That isn't a very good resolution. This is obviously some defect in the Ford Edge. Parking on an incline should be something you can do with your own car - especially since my driveway is on an incline.
