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.

2007 Ford Edge Owner Comments

2007 Ford Edge with vista roof glass top. While driving at highway speed my front glass panel exploded and scattered glass shards down the back of the vehicle. Since dealing with the Ford dealer and company there is no indication that this is a common problem. However, after doing some research on the internet, I have found several instances of this reported ( since we had the inside panel closed no one was hurt. Besides the noise scaring the driver I imagine that if the panel is open this could be very dangerous. The car is still in for repair and am told replacement part(s) is on order from out of state. This problem seems to continue into at least the 2008 models.
