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.

1. was driving to work in my 2007 Ford Edge sel with hankook tires, when the low tire pressure indicator light turned on. 2. at work, I found a tire was at 20 psi and leaking from a crack at the base of the valve stem. I inspected the three other stems and found them with cracks at the base of the valve stem. 3. I took the car into the local Ford dealership. They charged me for the replacement of the leaking valve stem. They did not touch the other three valve stems. The very next day, another valve stem failed and began to leak.

I have a 2007 Ford Edge with Continental tires size P245/60 R18-------104T this vehicle only has 16,000 miles on it and the front tires have worn down dramatically and the back tires have worn down on the insides only, which wasn't seen until the tires were rotated in September. Now that the tires have been rotated the tires that were removed from the back and put on the front are now wearing down, like the ones that were in the front did. I have contacted Continental tire who says the problem belongs to Ford and Ford says the problem is the tire companies problem. I have a 3 year 36,000 mile bumper to bumper warranty and they deny having any responsibility and Continental tire says they don't warranty the tires for the purchaser of the vehicle.

We own a 2007 Ford Edge and during our trip this past weekend had two of the four valve stems go bad on us and cause the sensor to activate. When we checked each time we found that the stems had "split" and air was coming out causing flat tires. The first event was on the 30th of July on our way to destination and the second was on the 2nd of August on our way back home. This was especially frustrating as we were in a nomans land area with no services and had to limp for a few hours on the donut spare tire to get to a town that had service. As a result we will be having the other two replaced today!

Within a matter of one month I am replacing 3 out of 4 valve stems on my 2007 Ford Edge tires. Of course I am making them change the 4th tire today as well. My concern is the wheel now, has this issued cause additional defects on the wheel it self"??" ~freda agner~ orlando

2 tires on 2007 Edge- 1st failure was 'valve stem problem' sudden loss of pressure- July, 2008 near sheboygan, wi. 2 hours later, 1 tire -blow out on interstate in milwaukee. Lucky to have maintained control of vehicle. Bought 4 new tires that afternoon as a result of being on vacation, and nearest Ford dealer did not have matching hankook tires available. As not having 4 exactly same tires can lead to other driving problems, I bought 4 new tires to avert any further harrowing experiences on the interstate.

My tire valve stems were cracked and leaking on all four tires of my 2007 Ford Edge and the tire pressure dropped dramatically in one day. When I called my Ford dealer they had no idea what I was talking about. I had to have the valve stems replaced on two tires and replace two entire tires at my own expense.

In Sept. We noticed that we were losing air in our tires, upon closer look we discovered that the valve stems were cracked around the bottom. We took the car into our nearest Ford dealer and at a cost of $42.39 they put four new tire valve stems on.

Took my car in to have my tires rotated and noticed that the stem on the front driver side tire was torn, nearly eroding off. Had to purchase a new tire to avoid a possible future accident. I saw on the news that this seems to be a problem with most 2007 Ford, so I'm contributing my incident.

My 2007 sensor detected low pressure. (please note: I took my car to beach Ford 757--486-2717 last week and requested they change out all of the valves-------they changed out only the flat one and only put new caps on the others!!!!) my concern is they may have done this with other consumers. I drove from Virginia beach to wash. DC on Sunday. On I95 averaging 65-80 mph. The inconvenience of spending yesterday at the dealership again is nothing in comparison to the impact of losing my life like the man in Florida due to a faulty valve. To date: Rear passenger went bad. Replaced by non dealer (paul's auto) front driver's tire last week back driver's tire yesterday. (I watched yesterday to ensure they changed out the remaining one.

On the way to work in my new car, signal went off for low tire pressure. Took to a tire place and the valve stem was leaking air at the point of the join of the tire. I have never in all my years of driving experienced such a thing.

The contact owns a 2007 Ford Edge. The vehicle has hankook dynapro as, size P235/70R17S tires. While driving 35 mph, the tires do not grip and the ABS activates. The contact feels that the stopping distance between his vehicle and others is too excessive. He also feels that the tires are the source of the failure. The current and failure mileages were 1,250.

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.
