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.

Loud humming sound from the rear of the car, sound started slightly then becoming very loud, according to dealer both rear wheel bearings need to be replaced. Also informed that Ford has not issued a recall but has provided dealer with technical data in this regard. Note also took extended car warranty to 60,000 miles but never expected failure to wheel bearing to fail at such a low mileage. Numerous comments on this happening with 2007 Edges in the on-line database. Ford quality"?"

Ford Edge wheel bearings brought vehicle in to david self Ford in orange, Texas due to nose coming from rear of vehicle in November 2010 - was told wheel bearing was out, and I had david self Ford replace for around $500. Now February 2012 this is happening again and now I'm being told both bearings are out, and of course will be around $1000 to fix. Researching this via google, and there is a lot of complaints about Ford Edge wheel bearings going out on Ford Edge models between 2007-2010 makes. Talking with others they are saying if these bearings go out completely this will lock up the back wheels and will stop rolling completely. To me this is a major safety issue, however reporting this to Ford they are saying there is no recall at this point. Please let me know some feedback on this due to Ford has redesigned wheel bearings, however is stating there is no recall on these, and repairs are pasted off to the customer (2nd time for me and others via google)- I feel this is a bad design from Ford, and recall needs to be done.

I began to hear a roaring noise in the rear while driving. The dealer said that it was the rear hub, bearings, and attachment arm and needed to be replaced that it could lead to a wheel coming off, a safety issue. I was told Ford knew there was a problem with these parts and is referred to as "of customer interest" but was not a recall. If Ford knows of the defective part why are they not issuing a recall? this repair cost me $800. More importantly if this is a safety issue Ford should tell its customers and pay for replacement parts.

20" tire rims on the 2007 Edge is popping and will not stay balanced causing me to think the rim is bending or is faulty in such a way it could cause an accident.
