  • 54,000 miles


While drive along with normal flow of traffic, I came to a well known stop sign approaching oncoming traffic in both directions. When I put my foot on the brake pedal to stop, the vehicle didn't have any brakes and did not even attempt to stop. The brake pedal was hard and there was a loud whooshing sound. After repeated attempts to use the brake pedal as I usually do, the same thing kept happening. It does not matter what rate of speed or road conditions. It is a clear sunny day. The brakes suddenly went out.

I have been experiencing a hissing noise when depressing the brake. A few times, the brake has been difficult to depress when trying to stop the vehicle. Brake pads and rotors have been replaced an is not the problem.

Brakes started making a very loud "hissing" sound and occasionally felt like the pedal wouldn't depress. Had the car inspected at dealership and was told the brakes were fine. Today (month later) the brakes still make the "hissing" sound and the brake won't depress without really stepping on it hard. It feels like the car will not stop. I drive my kids in this car and it terrifies me - this is clearly a problem that can lead to fatal results. I am surprised to find out there is no recall on the brake booster, which is the problem; given the incidents with GM and Toyota I am shocked Ford has made no effort to correct this problem. I am now not sure I will purchase a Ford again in the future if I can't trust they will issue necessary safety recalls.

A loud "hissing" noise can be heard when depressing the brake pedal. Brakes feel "spongey" and require considerable effort to bring the vehicle to a full stop. I took the car into tire kingdom for diagnosis and was told the rotors and brake pads on the front of the vehicle needed replaced. This was completed only to find it did not resolve the problem. The manager contacted Ford and was advised there is a recall on the power brake booster for the make, model, and year of my vehicle. I contacted Ford to schedule the repair and was told that my VIN is not part of the recall and the repair would not be covered. When I questioned further I was advised the recall only covers "some" of the cars assembled at the Oakville plant with my make, model, and year and that they could not cover the replacement of this faulty equipment.

The brakes on my 2010 Ford Edge make a hissing noise when pressed. In addition, the brake pedal feels spongy and the car will only stop when you press the pedal all the way down to the floor board. This is a problem that Ford is aware of, yet they refuse to cover the cost of the repair. Ford released a "customer satisfaction program 13N02" memo describing the exact symptoms that my car is showing and stated that the problem is with the brake booster system. However, the memo states that only certain 2010 vehicles are affected and mine is not one of them. I am terrified that one day soon, the car will not stop at all and my family and I will be seriously injured. We received a quote of approximately $1400 to repair the brake booster system. Ford is completely aware that the brakes on the 2010 Edge are faulty, but they knowingly continue to place families in danger by not acknowledging that the brake defect is more widespread.

Problem to break the car in a slope. When I press the the break pedal, it gone all the way out. When I press for a second time it stop at least 25 feet to hit a wall. As per mechanic consulted this was due to a defective break booster in my Ford Edge sel 2010.

Edge 6-cyl

  • 54,500 miles


Brakes made hissing sound when pedal was pressed and then had to stomp on the pedal to get the car to stop. The vehicle nearly slid into a busy highway at the intersection because the brakes didn't engage. A certified Ford technician at the dealership said the issue was a faulty brake booster that needed replaced. Apparently, this has been a huge issue with many Ford models including mine. A simple google search reveals hundreds of complaints about this defective part. Please investigate! this is very dangerous and it's just a matter of time before there is a serious accident.

Brakes have become spongy and a hissing sound is emitted when they are pressed. Pedal must be pressed harder than normal.

Had to push the brake pedal very hard to stop, so basically no power brakes. Took it to the Ford dealer and paid >$600 to replace the brake booster. I have never had to replace one of these in any car I have owned. This is not a repair that should be needed given the number of miles on the car. Ford should be the one paying for this repair.

Edge 6-cyl

  • 77,200 miles
Very hard brake. Extremely hard to stop especially at a slow roll. Braking at faster (20-30mph) speeds more effective, but very ineffective when moving very slowly (5mph or less). When applying brake, there is a hissing sound. Very scary to drive and only did to get to repair shop. This problem matches exactly an existing recall with Ford Edge 2010's, but for some reason my VIN was excluded in the recall. Car repaired at Ford dealer, but had to pay more than $500.

Edge 6-cyl

At random times when braking the brake pedal will feel like a brick, with no power brake boost. It feels like the brakes would feel if the car were shut off, but it is still running. Or at other times the pedal is very spongy feeling. In both cases there is a delay in braking causing a potentially hazardous situation.

Brake pedal became stiff and it was hard to stop without standing on brake. Mechanic had to replace the power brake booster. NHTSA has a file # 10052836 and Ford issued tsb #csp-13N02 to notify and replace part for only select cars. If you aren't in this group, you have no idea your brakes will suddenly be difficult to apply, resulting in accidents.

I hope and I pray that someone will be an angel for us to help us. We as an individual can not fight a big company like Ford motors, we are helpless. Please help us. Too many complaint on Ford 2010 acceleration problem that had injured many many and put a lot of peoples life in danger. I bought my Ford last year from an auto dealer. The first time I noticed the acceleration problem, I was parking my car in a parking lot and my car accelerated on its own and I went on the grass. The second time I was parking in my garage and the car accelerated again on its own and I almost push my sons through the garage door. The third time it happened it accelerated again on its own and the brake did not work. I hit a parked car in a small townhouse parking lot. My car and the other car was damaged. Police report was filed and my auto insurance fixed the 3 cars involved. I was scared I thought I was going to die that day. Since this time I have been trying to resolve the problem with the Ford company but they're not taking any responsibility on the matter. I then went on the internet to research on this problem. Found out that there are lots and lot of complain on this accelerating problem with Ford Edge 2010. Yet Ford claimed there is no recall on the model. When is Ford going to take responsibility and fix the problem. Are they waiting for someone to get killed before ataking care of this situation. Please help us. You are the last hope. I am paying for the car but I am too afraid to drive it its been parked since the accident. Please help.
