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.

Edge 6-cyl

The smell of gasoline vapors were detected when ever the vehicle was parked in the garage. We took the vehicle to the Ford dealer ship and it was determined by a Ford technician that the fuel tank is leaking. The fuel tank is a two piece steel design that is welded together at the seem. The welded joint is corroding and caused the leaking. The vehicle has never been in a accident nor has the fuel tank had any maintenance conducted on it. This fuel tank was an oem part and installed by the oem only. Ford has indicated they do not have any replacement parts available, and do not have a supplier to manufacture replacement fuel tanks.
