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

I was traveling around 40 mph on a state highway when sputtering and vibration issues started with 2007 Ford Edge and check engine light came on. Still drove vehicle to my mechanic which stated coil burned out and sent surge of power to the PCM. Mechanic stated design of PCM wouldn't stop the firing of coil and not to drive vehicle any further or it will burn to the ground. Mechanic stated only the Ford dealership can install a new one and rest the car to get it running. Towed vehicle to Ford dealership who stated they have a tsb issued for this problem and they will need to replace the PCM and all 6 coils because they have all melted. Ford dealership stated this was an on going problem due to a faulty design of the PCM that when a coil burns out (common wear and tear and $100 to $200 fix) the PCM doesn't stop firing to the coils which could cause the car to catch fire. Estimate to fix the PCM and all six coils was $2,958. Reason for complaint - I understand wear and tear on a vehicle, but due to a design issue in the Ford/Mercury/Lincoln PCM, it caused extensive damage and repair to the car and potential to burn to the ground. $100 fix with proper design and now $2,958 due to PCM issue. I am requesting this issue to be reviewed for reimbursement by the manufacturer or recall issued. Thanks you for your time.

The contact owns a 2007 Ford Edge. While driving at approximately 40 mph, the contact felt a loss of pressure on the accelerator pedal and the vehicle shook. The contact had the vehicle diagnosed and was informed that the power control failed and the coil melted. The mechanic stated that the vehicle was not safe to drive. The manufacturer was notified. The approximate failure mileage was 120,000.

A wheel speed sensor failed (per my mechanic), causing the ABS and traction control systems to malfunction. It became extremely difficult to stop the car, with the brake pedal pulsing and traveling nearly to the floorboard. I was finally able to stop the car just before running a red light by standing on the brake pedal. The brake pads were at ~50% per a recent state inspection. This happened again in February 2015 when another wheel speed sensor failed with my wife and children in the car with me. I was able to temporarily resolve the issue by pulling the ABS fuse to disable the ABS system. Ford's R&M engineers must have forgotten to perform a failure mode analysis on the Edge's ABS system.
