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 contact owns a 2007 Ford Edge. The contact stated that while driving at various speeds, the brakes failed to engage and the vehicle continued moving forward. The vehicle was taken to the dealer. The technician diagnosed that the brake power booster needed to be replaced. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure but did not offer any assistance since the vehicle was not included in any recalls and additionally, advised that the parts needed to complete the repair were not available. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure and current mileage was 71,000.

The brakes skip when going at slow speeds, specially when going down on ramps. This has happened to us several times specially in parking garages.

While braking on a highway I felt something was wrong with the brakes as I had to push the pedal with all my might to slow down. After exiting the ramp and approaching a stop light it was apparent that I had no "real" brakes..again pedal to the floor with a very long distance to come to a complete stop. At this time I could hear a very loud kind of whistling sound coming from the pedal when I applied the brakes..again to the floor. As I pulled into a parking lot it felt like I lost all control...almost like no power at all to stop the car. This has been reported to mechanic said it was the brake booster.

This is my daughters vehicle. She complained of a noise in the front end while braking and sometimes while just driving at moderate speeds. Upon inspection I discovered that the inner brake pads on both front brakes were totally worn out and grinding on the metal while the outer pads had plenty of brake material left. The rotors were ruined! the rear brake pads also had plenty of material left. This is totally unacceptable and dangerous.
