I have been having intermittent issues with the sensor not reading that my driver side door is latched. Today, it is constant and will not even allow me to lock the doors! I have tried several times to get it to "latch" and clearly the door is closed, but the "door ajar" warning is still illuminated.

The door ajar light remains on all the time, elluding to the driver's door being open, when it is not. Will not allow me to lock my doors when driving, making it unsafe and wearing down my battery.

I put the car in reverse and heard a loud thump thump and thought I backed into an object, but did not. When I put the car in drive, there was little acceleration even though I had the accelerator to the floor. I continued on and after a little while, about 2 miles, the car ran alright and I made it home safely. I immediately contacted the Ford dealership in town, and dropped the vehicle off this morning 7/29/2014.

Coming off of lakeshore drive with my 4 month old son in the back car seat and the truck just goes limp with no power. It drove really slow and so I pulled off to the side turned off the truck restarted and seemed fine. There were cars coming up behind me thank goodness no accident. Made it to my sons doctor appointment and quickly called the dealership and the service guy said he has heard nothing with the Ford Edge and doesn't know what the wrench meant. He said I need to bring it in and I will be charged $125 just to look at it. I asked if it was safe to drive back with my son and he just said I don't know. So I asked why would the handbook say to contact the dealership immediately? apparently this seems to be an issue with this and needs to be fixed. I have two small children and do not want something serious to happen for something that is obviously a defect!.

My door ajar light continues to come on. I shut the door multiple times and sometimes it turns off and some times it doesn't. I think the lock or latch on the door is faulty.

When driving the vehicle the power train problem indicator light and check engine light come on and the car loses all power. Car will not exceed 900 rpm and will barely move. I had the trouble codes read and it is indicting that the throttle is showing stuck closed and open. I believe that this is the same issue as with several other Ford models and should have been part of the extended warranty that covered the throttle bodies from several other models. This issue poses a serious safety risk do to the fact that it has happened several times and at various speeds, if this were to happen at highway speeds in heavy traffic it could be horrible. I have researched this problem extensively online and found that it is a fairly common issue with the Edge.

I loved everything about my 2011 Ford Edge limited awd, I've had it less then two months . Then one morning as I was commuting to work I lost power to my Edge. The weather was clear approx. 68 degrees, a beautiful Friday morning I was driving I felt a jolt like a kick in the transmission that was followed by a flash of the tool symbol & ”awd off” on my front instrument panel. I lost acceleration power. I had nowhere to pull off on the side of the road and had just came out of a sharp curve. All I could do was put the Edge in park. Turn off, then turn back on, it started right up luckily. The next day my husband took the Edge to a Ford dealership. The service dept. Hooked up the Edge and found no problems/errors/codes. Although they said it is probably the throttle body, since they have had several Ford Edges come in with the same problem. I have googled “losing power while driving my 2011 Ford Edge” and didn’t relies that this is the #1 problem with Ford Edges, you would think that Ford would do something about this. After reading all the comments I saw information on the “throttle body” being replaced. Several people posted their Edge had a code p2111 or p2112 (pertaining to the throttle body). I called Ford and they told me this would not be covered under warranty. Help! I have a small family now I'm scared to drive!.

I was driving my 2007 Ford Edge with 3 children in it when all of a sudden I lost the ability to not only accelerate but my speed suddenly fell from 45 miles an hour to 15 miles an hour without any ability to accelerate. My car was in a constant state of shaking and sputtering and increased when applying the brakes. There was something significantly wrong and it was pretty scary to experience particularly with 3 small children. I had the car towed to my automotive service company where the car's software system displayed codes indicating two ignition codes failed. Subsequently, the service provider replaced all the spark plugs and two coils. The car was not fixed and it was further determined that the pcm board is sending extremely high current to the ignition coils and could have caused an engine fire. This is very distressing. Ford has issued an internal TSB acknowledging this issue but has not enacted a recall. The estimated cost to replace the pcm, spark plugs and coils (6) is approximately $3,000. Additionally in my research there is a class action lawsuit that has been filed by a group of Ford owners.

Driving getting ready to make a turn, vehicle completely stalled out, didn't turn off but I l ost power . Had no ability to accelerate. Immediately put on hazard lights, put into park and turned car off. Turned car back on and preceded with fear and caution. I had a similar incident at about14000 miles when I took it in for service they said nothing was wrong. I'm afraid to drive to work in the morning, if this happens during rush hour someone may be injured or worst. I usually have my grand daughter with me.

Discovered my 2008 Edge has a failed water pump asy. Car overheated due to this. According to several seasoned mechanics and Ford, this should not happen to this car with this amount of mileage. The way this car was engineered, it is a $2300+ repair - for a water pump! spoke with Ford several times asking for them to step-up and take responsibility. Got no help except I should keep my receipts. Very disappointed in Ford.

Weve owned this vehicle for approximately 2 years. The other day we noticed a strong smell of gasoline around the car. Upon checking we noticed the fuel tank leaking from around a seem. When I started checking around for a replacement tank I noticed a recall on 2008 Ford Edge. My car was built in August of 07. They described the same problem caused by contamination near a dimple at a seem. The same tank is on the 07, 08 and 09 Edge. When I checked with Ford they said my car wasn't under recall. I believe it should be because of the same tanks on the 07, 08 and 09 models plus its a safety hazzard as I cannot drive the car and the cost to fix it is over $2,000. 00. Ford should be made to recall all models from 07 on and correct this problem at no cost to the consumer before someone gets killed. I believe Ford knows about this and is intentionally not recalling these models because of the cost involved. I have owned vehicles all my life (I'm 62) and have never had a bad gas tank on any other vehicle I've owned. This is a defect that is a safety hazzard to the public and needs to be corrected!.

The alert for 'driver door ajar' comes on and will not turn off, regardless of how many times and/or how hard/soft the door is closed. This causes the interior lights to stay on after the car is turned off. I am now driving around, ignoring the alert, which is dangerous because I could potentially be driving with a door that is not latched properly, which could result in a serious injury. Thank god it is not the door that my son uses. I am hearing from every Ford owner I've spoken to and all over the internet that this seems to be a problem in the majority of Fords, so I think someone needs to look into a recall on this. Thank you.

After closing the door then starting the vehicle the "door ajar" will not go off which notifies the driver to put the vehicle in park. I think this is a safety issue as the vehicle may not protect the driver and passengers in the event an accident occurs. I also noticed that when turning the vehicle off to get gas or etcetera, it keeps notifying you to put the vehicle in park. I think this is directly related to the door latch being faulty. Ford wants $400 to repair this item which I think is a safety issue and should be recalled as many Edge owners are experiencing the same faults.

Driver side door ajar light remains on when door is properly closed. Seems to be a common issue w/Ford Edge door latches.

We were traveling on a highway when all of a sudden we lost "power" but it was only the ability to go. There was enough traffic and lack of speed to prohibit from moving all the way over to the shoulder. We made it to the slowest lane (furthest right hand lane). The only thing that saved us from being rear ended was there was a sheriff near by and saw us broke down stranded and he helped direct traffic around us for our safety. We were in an unpopulated area and had no resources for some one to come get us or know which towing company could help us, along with knowing a trusted mechanic out where we were. My car is less than 4 years old, this should not be happening. When we finally made it home out of sheer luck, we did lots of research on what the problem could be and found millions had the same problem with their Fords. I love the company but I never end been so stressed out and scared for my children's safety. I bought this vehicle to be safe and it had failed me. Like I said, I could be marking this form differently if the officer didn't protect us. The part was not cheap along with the labor. With so many other people breaking down for the same reason, I am shocked and appalled that there hasn't been a recall for this yet. I urge you to change that and keep the roads safe for all drivers. Since the affected part doesn't have my specific part, it was the throttle body and even my mechanics said Ford has never had a good one. Wish I would of know that before purchasing my vehicle.

Driving 43mph, my vehicle stalled while driving. The awd off and wrench icon indicators appeared on the dashboard. I had to swerve onto the median to avoid being rear-ended. This happened again on June 16, 17, 24 & 25. This has happened at varying speeds, faster and slower than the first incident. It ended up being the throttle body, and conveniently just 4000 miles past the warranty expiration. I was told by two separate mechanics that this is something they've seen many times, and if it were one of two other Ford models, it would be covered under the extended warranty plan by Ford. It is the same part in all vehicles, but only covered in certain models? this faulty part is putting people's lives at risk, or at minimum putting them in unnecessary danger of an accident and resulting financial damages that follow. If it's a known issue with the part, why is this allowed to continue? and why are only certain models covered? $600 later and I don't trust that my problem is solved.

The rear window shattered for no apparent reason. The car was parked in a parking lot for about 1 1/2 hours on a sunny day. When I got in the car, closed the door, the whole back window shattered. There was no reason for the window to break. Reporting this information as it appears this has been a problem with Ford Edge cars in the past. We are having it repaired using insurance coverage.

Entering highway and auto would not shift gears or accelerate. Stayed idle at over 5 rpm's and had to pull off the road. Seemed like a transmission problem. Towed to repair shop for assessment. Still at shop. This vehicle on multiple occasions before this incident has regularly engaged in a violent jerk when I have engaged it in drive or reverse. Seems like a transmission issue but dealer wont do anything unless they can duplicate problem. I have seen and know of numerous other Ford Edge owners that have had the same issue and no fix has been found or dealer and Ford wont fix unless it duplicated the issue while they have the vehicle and most times its something not covered. This is a serious safety issue and they need to be held accountable.

The "driver door ajar" message continues to go off on our 2008 Ford Edge. The door is securely closed. The lights will stay on finally causing a complete drain on our battery last night during the night. This is a big safety concern as the doors do not lock sometime until several miles down the road. We could also be left stranded somewhere as we never know when it is going to happen. We go to bed all lights are off and sometime during the night they come on. We have tried several suggestions regarding engine lubricant on the plunger, but it is a temp fix at best. This is a safety problem. I would like to have it fixed by Ford. Clearly if you do research on the internet this has been a problem with the Ford Edges for several years.

I have a 2008 Ford Edge sel. When turning on my left blinker it was blinking rapidly which I knew indicated a light was out. I found that it was my driver side rear blinker/tail light. I went to the store and purchased the bulb. When I got home to replace it I found that I could not remove the bulb as the socket has melted. I searched online and found that this is common for this type of vehicle.

This happened about a year ago not sure of date that's why I didn't list. It is drivers door again and rear passenger door. Two at a time! rear door is hardly used. Very disgusting and costly repairs again .

While driving on the highway, my Ford Edge lost acceleration. The engine remained idling but would not accelerate. I had to coast over to the side of the road, turn the engine off and restart. It would run fine for a few miles then repeat. I managed to get it to a Ford dealer who said it was a very common problem with the throttle body and it needed to be replaced but was not covered by my warranty. $610 later and many hours lost from work, I am a very unhappy Ford owner. Having researched this problem on line, I am finding it is a common problem with the Ford escape and now becoming more common with the Edge.

I red reviews and all reviews said they had transmission replaced. Fyi I was not offered a warenty. This car should have a recall.

I have had the vehicle for 6 months, in April 2014 the first incident occurred when the car overheated on 3 different occasions and emptied all the antifreeze on the third time. Brought the car to the dealer, dealer found no error codes and let the vehicle run for 4 hrs with the a/c on and found nothing to be wrong. A few weeks later I was driving down the road and the car just shut down, luckily I was driving in a construction zone and was only going about 35 mph. I was able to coast to the side of the road and let the car sit for a few minutes. Restarted car and continued home. Also, the car has died while 5 more times since then while sitting in a drive through for a few minutes. And finally yesterday, the car just stopped 4 times within a 2 mile period. Very frustrated and afraid that this will happen when I am traveling on the highway and possible get rear ended or killed.
