2012 Ford Edge Owner Comments

problem #8

Safety issue regarding door latch and door ajar sensor. Sensor has failed and continues to think the door is ajar which causes the doors not able to lock, and the interior light stays on and causes windshield glare when driving at night. This is a safety hazard as you cannot lock the doors for protection and you can't see properly to drive at night.

2012 Ford Edge limited: Driving down the divided highway at about 65 mph, with no vehicles in front/next to/ or behind me, the panoramic sunroof exploded and shattered. This was not due to any impact or collision of any type, to include debris, flying pebbles, etc. The sunroof exploded outwards, with the glass pushed upwards. Additionally, the glass was shattered in all four corners. This is a design defect, with documented recalls across many makes/models. This exact situation has happened to hundreds of other people/vehicles whether driving at highway speeds or parked. In every case, the scenario appears to be the same: The tempered glass exploded due to design failures while operating the vehicle under normal / routine conditions. Recall requested.

The driver side door latch assembly has went bad and it is a problem that Ford refuses to address. It keep the light on in the cabin of the car and the door doesn't lock appropriately for safety.

While driving at less than the posted speed limit, we heard an explosion from on top of the vehicle. Saw glass pieces sliding off roof. Upon visual inspection we saw the vista sunroof had exploded. The glass exploded along the perimeter of the retractable sunroof. The center of the glass was still intact and there was no visible sign of impact. Nothing hit the glass. Given the perimeter glass damage, it appears the glass was compressed inward somehow. This is a vehicle defect.

During the night on 9/25/2012, the windshield spontaneously cracked from the lower driver's side corner extending diagonally toward the center of the window. The window was replaced by the dealer. On 7/2/12 same type of crack appeared on driver side in new windshield. On 7/21/12, a similar crack appeared on passenger side extending from the lower corner and continuing toward the center of the window. These 3 spontaneous cracks from corners occurred in about one and a half years, all happening over night and from the corners.
