Failure Date: 03/03/2015

The door latch on the 2013 Ford Edge is faulty, and continually has to be replaced. This is the second time in 6 months we have had to have this replaced, and this time, we are 3000 miles over our warranty, and are having to go out of pocket for this - an expense of over $300. Additionally, because the door latch doesn't work correctly, it continually causes the interior lights of the cart to stay on, which has caused the battery to deplete, and we are now facing the charge for a new battery as well in order to get our vehicle in working order. Lastly, Ford informed us today that the factory battery that they installed is "too small" for this size vehicle, and a larger capacity battery should be put in its place. We purchased this car new, and issues like this make us feel as if we've purchased a lemon. Ford is now charging us for a part that is clearly poorly manufactured, and as a consequence, causing us to buy additional parts like batteries to support their mistakes.

I was driving and all of a sudden the vehicle started idling high and sputtering. Then the check engine light came on. The engine just shut off. Luckily there was no one behind me. I could have been rear-ended. This is third time this has happened. The first time it happened I took it to Ford and they said there was no code to tell them what was wrong with it. They replace the throttle body sensor and check engine light was gone, but a few hours later it came back on and it stalled on me again. I wasted a couple of hundred dollars to end up right back where I was before with a very unsafe vehicle. If I could afford to get another vehicle, I would. I am afraid to drive this vehicle. Something has to be done before someone is injured or killed.

Driving door ajar warning light comes on when the door is not ajar. When this happens you can't lock the doors and the overhead lights stay on making it dangerous to drive at night and is a safety hazard to occupants.

Door latch does not register the door as being closed. This results in the door ajar indicator being lit when the door is locked. This impairs the ability to drive at night as the interior lights will not turn off.

The driver door latch sensor went bad. It keeps saying that the door is ajar. When it is not. This is a real safety issue. For example, what if I don't close my door completely, I would expect this warning to come on. But right now the door warning is always on. So I really don't know if my door is properly closed or not. So far I am "slamming my door shut" to ensure that it is properly closed.

While driving 25-40 mph, the car went into limp mode, no acceleration at all. "yellow wrench" light came on the instrument panel. I was stuck in the intersection, making a left hand turn across two lanes of oncoming traffic, and I could not move the car. The engine did not turn off or stall. I just had no power or ability to accelerate. I was finally able to roll into a safe spot, out of traffic and harms way. I turned the car off and waited a few minutes to restart. When I restarted it, the wrench light was off and the car ran fine. This happened twice, two nights in a row, so I had it towed to the dealer the next day. They were not able to find any problems with the car and wanted me to just take it as is. I mentioned that I had read about issues with the electronic throttle body, and they said it seemed fine. How can they allow me to take a car that is so unsafe to drive? I could have been hit, and the person that hit me could have been killed. I called Ford customer relations, regarding an investigation on this problem, and they were required to do a "customer satisfaction program;. But my VIN did not fall into this program. I paid to have the etb replaced, out of pocket, and am hoping that this is the problem. Very unsafe situation to be put in by Ford.

I was driving up hill at 40mph, I first noticed my rpms dropping, then my speed. Came home and called dealership, as my vehicle is under warranty, car was towed to fairfield Ford. They called later to tell me it was the throttle body assembly and he took it apart and cleaned it. He said at this time, it was fine. Of course, this was the one thing not covered by the extended warranty. Within 2 weeks, the same thing happened again. It was intermittent. So I had my mechanic replace the part.

Door ajar warning (on screen as well as repeated bell noise) came on while I was on a 2 lane road with no shoulders available due to snow alongside road. I was forced to stop in middle of road to open and close door repeatedly to turn off door ajar. It felt like door was closed but sensor kept indicating it was open. Problem abated for a few days but has come back now.

My 2011 Ford Edge currently has 59000 miles on it. The door ajar light will not go off. I have taken it to the dealership to be checked out. They said it was not covered in warranty and that there is a TSB on it- TSB-14-0083. Apparently this is a common issue. I am not able to lock my doors properly in the vehicle. My alarm will randomly go off in the middle of the night because its sensing that the door is open when it isn't. I will not pay to have this replaced when it is very evident that this is a "known issue" as my service advisor told me. This needs to be recalled because of the safety issues that are presented when you can't lock your doors.

I get a door ajar warning when the door is actually closed; the lights won't go off, nor the doors lock. I feel very unsafe with the doors not being able to lock. Plus it doesn't help the batter life much either.

The driver side door sensor will not recognize the door is shut. This is causing the interior lights to remain on during the night time and the doors cannot lock. My child is able to open the door while moving causing a major safty issue. Ford is aware of the problem when we took it in and knows this is a defect, but will not address the issue. The require us to pay 300-500 dollars to fix. Please make them recall this for the safty of the children in the back seat. I will be contacting my lawyer to see what furtehr steps we can take.

Driver door is always ajar on the dash panel. This causes the doors not to lock when inside the car and is very annoying when it dings/rings everytime you take your foot off the brake. I believe it is the sensor and I am not willing to pay $150. 00 at the dealership just to find out what it is and then pay to have it fixed. The car is not that old and should be fixed for free. While researching on the internet, this is a common problem with my make and model of car. Very disappointing.

Driving along the freeway, when all of a sudden I noticed the dimming of lights in my car, and then the speedometer and engine odometer (revs) all dropped to 0, along with the wrench signal coming on, along with the airbag signal coming on, and then eventually the tire pressure signal coming on. The car lost acceleration and I was able to get off the freeway at the next exit. I tried to put my foot on the accelerator, I could hear the engine revving but the car only moving at 10 miles an hour, wouldn't go any faster, although I could hear it, it wouldn't click over, or accept the change in gear.
