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.

I kept hearing a strange noise when I applied my brakes. When I took the vehicle in their diagnosis was that a pin was breaking on the front caliper on the front right tire. They replaced the pin, right front wheel bearing assembly, and hub. They replaced the front brake pads and inspected the brake system. Hub assembly was "wobbling" causing the pins to break and caused my brake pads to ruin.

problem #4

  • 48,000 miles
I was going approximately 15 mph while turning right when I heard a clunking noise and the right side of my car dipped more than it should. The right wheel (looking out from the vehicle) seemed to "give" when it turned. I took it into a body shop and they said that the ball joint was loose and needed replacement. At the time of the incident the mileage on my car was approximately 48K. I have only highway miles and do not do any off-roading. The clunking noise and "give"of the right ball joint continues to happen and a floating sensation is caused, which feels like the car will tip over when making right turns on the highway at more than 30 mph.

Approximately 6 weeks ago I found out that I had a big problem with my car. I was told I was not to drive it because if the pto unit went out my rear wheels would not function because it is all wheel drive and it would be dangerous to drive the vehicle. Well Ford Motor Company was to ship parts out in 2 weeks, well that didn't happen. Then again I was told the parts would be here last week and they took me off back order and said my parts would be here by Monday June 4th. Well guess what my part didn't make it. The list of back orders according to [xxx] at Ford Motor Company is 1700 as of yesterday. So how many orders have they already filled? they only used this transmission in 2 vehicles for either 1 or 2 years. I know that some people have been waiting for months. At least 3 to 4 already. I know this is a safety problem and would appreciate if you could look into this for me and all the 1700+ consumers.
