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 there was an issue with the front brakes and he smelled a burning odor coming from the front of the vehicle. He did not know if the odor was mechanical or electrical. The brakes vibrated and began to grind when stopping or turning the vehicle at 40 mph. The contact was unsure if the failure was due to the stability control, ABS, or general braking system. The dealer could not find any failures after their initial inspection. Most recently, they informed the contact that they could only cut the rotors and replace the brake pads. They could not locate the burning aroma. The manufacturer has not been notified. The failure mileage was approximately 1,000.
