Edge Sport 2.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 27,462 miles

3/15/2016 Within 24 hours of picking the car up from the second reflash of the PCM and being told that the oil level was causing the stalling the Edge died on the I90 on ramp at Eastgate. Bad news. Not even 24 hours after picking the Edge up it died while merging into I90 at Eastgate. I have now owned this car just over 60 days and driven a total 1,900 miles during which it has gone into limp home mode 4 times. Dealer has reprogrammed the PCM twice. This last time it was in I was told the oil level was too high and caused the motor to shut down. Well the oil level was set to the factory specification by the tech and yet it shut off again today. (27,462.6)

Edge Titanium V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 10,666 miles

I was driving and the car just went "limp". Since I have only had the Edge since March it is very annoying to deal with issues in a new car. We had to have the car towed and the Ford dealership knew exactly the problem. Why hasn't Ford contacted me when they know there is an issue? Do they just wait for you to be stuck on the side of the road and then react? Fortunately I wasn't going 70 miles per hour on the expressway when it just stopped. So is Ford waiting for someone to be hurt before they issue a recall?

Ford do the right thing and contact all Edge drivers to let them know of the issue before someone gets hurt!

  • Manual transmission
  • 13,000 miles

The reason I'm writing is that this problem in not new to the Ford Edge (2009-2014 existed) and I have a 2015 Edge with 13,000 miles and a high loan with a car I no longer trust!

I was driving up a hill in a left lane on a hwy. going 55 miles per hour with a truck tailgating me when I suddenly lost power. My check engine light and a wrench appeared on my dash. I immediately placed my blinker on and hoped the truck didn't rear end me while moving to the right lane, and then to the side off the road.

Fortunately, I could cross and didn't cause a crash or get crashed by the semi.

Very, very sad that Ford has known about this Throttle body air intake (EEC) issue since 2009 and has somehow still not recalled the old models but continue to create new models with the same issue.

Damn. I love(d) for not taking bail out money from the government but I'm WONDERING WHY they aren't stopping this issue!

Edge SEL AWD 3.6L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 18,770 miles


Purchased vechile in February, had to have all of the tire pressure sensors replaced by May. Should have known then that this 40K car was a lemon than. I travel approxamitaley 140 miles a day for my job. Last night in rush hour bumper to bumper traffic going about 5 mph the YELLOW wrench appeared after the car jolted and jerked. Got to the shoulder set the car off for about 5 minutes, car started fine the wrench was gone and off and moving I continued my drive. Went to grocery store close to home, then started my next 7 mile trip down the road to home. The dam car jolted and jerked, loss of power and hard time steering the car. Got parked, called dealership explained problem. Left car sit for two hours before continuing home. This better be a one time issue otherwise they are getting the dam car back one way or another.

Edge Titanium 3.5L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 4,400 miles

Ever since I got this car in October of 2015, it has run rough at idle in park, neutral or drive. It completely stalled out 3 times prior to this and was taken to a Ford dealer in NJ where they continued to say nothing was wrong with the car. Finally it went into limp mode and all the trouble lights stayed on and back to the dealer it went, where they said now they are changing out the throttle body. One to four weeks to get the part. Unreal! I just hope this is the fix for this headache. otherwise I really enjoy this car.

Edge Limited V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 5,000 miles

I bought my new 2015 Ford Edge in June of 2015, not even 2 months after owning it, the engine died on me while in stop and go traffic. The lights on the dash were on and it gave me an error message but I don't remember what it was. I was able to turn the car off and turn it back on and it was fine. Then it did it again maybe a week later. Took to the deal twice, they contacted Ford and they told the dealership they it had to be reprogrammed, which fixed it but now 9 months later I'm dealing with it again. This time I took a photo of the error message, it said "Full Accessory Power Active." I've taken it back to the dealership but I've done a lot of research and this problem has been happening for years on all kinds of Ford vehicles.

Edge SE V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 13,000 miles

vehicle stall

I purchased my 2015 Ford Edge V6 SE in March 2016. I drive 200+ miles per day. As I was driving home yesterday on the freeway, my Edge stalled while traveling at a speed of about 75+ mph. The engine did not turn off, however, giving it gas was unsuccessful. I pulled over to the side of the road and put it in park. The engine idled very rough. I put it in Drive again, it would coast (as it would if you didn't give it any gas) but stepping on the gas pedal was pointless. I turned the engine off, restarted and it ran normal. My husband made an appointment with the dealer for Friday, 5/13/16. I will post the results.
