Car won't start. Jumped the car but would struggled to start. And after having the engine run for 15 mins and drove for 15 or so minutes, car wont start without jumping. Happened several times. Emergency assistance its battery but when I went to Autozone battery is good. This is a pretty unreliable car and can be very dangerous.

This is a recall on the throttle body I got the letter in November. However Ford Motor will not replace or buy back this car. Also it is still leaking water onto the passenger side. The company is hiding behind the ALABAMA LEMON LAW. BUT THERE IS A FEDERAL LAW THAT TRUMPS ANY STATE LAW.

This is a ford edge brand new car. and I feel like FORD is blaming me by not taking responsibility. Not to mention there is a lawsuit out on the throttle body. CONTACT ME ANY NEW REPORTERS OR NEW MEDIA OUTLETS

Edge V6

  • CVT transmission
  • 20,000 miles

Doing 65 mph at 5:20 am in the morning, a lost of power and dash instruments and tools was a very frightening experience on the I-495 beltway, Springfield mixing bowl in Virginia. Glad the vehicle is still under warranty and I had GEICO Insurance to tow me.

I experienced a complete electrical failure as I was turning a corner. Although I managed to guide my car in to an empty bus stop, it was incredibly scary as the light had turned and cars were heading toward me. The wrench light was on, so I shut the car off, waited a minute and turned it back on--no problem. The manual said to go to the nearest dealer, so I did this the next day. My car was put on diagnostics, but the problem was not reproduced. The dealer said there should be a recall "coming out soon" but until then, all they could do was "tweak" the program. I hope this doesn't occur when I'm driving at 70 miles an hour down the highway: I'm not sure I'll survive that one.....

I was driving 50 on a busy road and all of a sudden my car locked up and the wrench light and air bag light icon came on and the car coasted. I had to get out of the way and it was a busy intersection and very scary. I could of been hit but thankfully I was not. Very scary and not something I have ever experienced with any of my other cars. Especially if they are new.

I had to have to towed. I just got it back from the dealer. Ford Customer care is no help. It is a new car and does not qualify for the buy back or replacement plans. My car as stopped a second time. The first time it was the throttle body. This time the computer. Something about the back hatch was pulling the power. It is not my fault it is a lemon I want a new car. Thinking about a class action suit.

Had one as a rental while our other car was in for service. One morning went to unlock it, press on the remote, nothing happens. Pressed every button on the remote and nothing worked. Had to pop the handle cover and use the key to get in. Still, nothing worked. Couldn't unlock any doors, engine wouldn't start, couldn't do anything that involved electrics. It wasn't the remote battery since it would still light up when it was pressed and when a mechanic came he said it wasn't the car battery. Not sure what ended up happening but obviously this was a big problem and can really mess up your schedule.
