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 the tire pressure sensor disintegrated inside the right rear tire which caused the tire to be off balance. The remaining three tires have not been affected. The dealer stated that the tires are not covered by the warranty and they would have to pay out of pocket for the repairs. The failure mileage was 40,000.

Tire pressure sensor light came on dashboard. Pulled off highway and tire was almost completely flat instantly. Found that the left front valve stem was cracked and faulty. As of 7/7/2009; all four valve stems have gone bad and been replaced.

While traveling on I-35 the left front tire suddenly lost air pressure at highway speeds. Upon inspection of tire, no damage other than what was inflicted from the event of traveling at 70mph while flat was found. The problem was that the valve stem failed. It was cracked at the base allowing a sudden loss of tire pressure. The other valve stems on the car are also cracked at the base but not completely failed yet.

I purchased a 2007 Ford Edge sel plus, and 6 months later I kept getting a low pressure message. I would refill the tire and a day later it was low. I took it in to the dealer and the valve stem was broken, as well as 3 other cracked valve stems. They replaced them all but charged me a discounted rate of $65 for the labor. Ford refused to cover it, and I had very low miles on the car. This was frightening, knowing this was the problem with the Explorer in the 1990's.

While driving my 2007 Ford Edge it displays "tire pressure sensor fault". this occurs generally during highway driving. When I took it to the dealer for repair, I was told that they couldn't figure out why the message was displayed. It has not been fixed. It would seem to me that this highly touted safety feature should work.

Edge 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

After driving out of the dealers lot not more than ten miles down the road the TPMS system went off telling me I had low tires on the vehicle (200 miles on it). Called dealer and was told to air up the tires and it would reset it's self in 2 minutes. Did not happen. Drove home only to find that the left back-up light was also not working.
