problem #2

Nov 232016

Edge Titanium 2.0L 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 3,500 miles


The first issue with the back door was that it would latch, but not completely close causing the door ajar alarm to sound. At that point I would have to wait 30 minutes or so until the latch would release. I took the car to the dealer and it looked like it was fixed. Unfortunately, the fix didn't last. Immediately when closing the door it would open again by itself, then lose power, requiring manual closing. Monday will be the 3rd visit to the service center. Every time without a loaner. Uber is becoming my best friend.

Edge ES

  • Automatic transmission
  • 20 miles

I am suppose to be able to open the back by a kicking motion under the Edge right of the hitch. Keys in hand, and yet it won't automatically open up 90% of the time.
