#3 - Equipment problem of the 2007 Ford Edge
The VIN of this Edge is 2FMDK36C07_. January 18, 2013, in the middle of winter, drove 2007 Ford Edge, with 40,466 miles, to an auto repair shop because the heater & defroster were not working. The auto repair shop flushed the coolant and the heater core and installed new coolant because the heater core was clogged with metal debris. Eight months later, September 22, 2013 and 57,000 miles, same problem, the heater & defroster were not working. Five days later, returned the vehicle to auto repair shop because of strong coolant smell and the engine fans were turning off and on. This time, the shop determined the heater core is clogged and needs to be replaced. In addition, the auto repair shop discovered Ford¿s TSB 09m04s1. This Ford TSB, issued 3/31/2010, guarantees the following: "owners of affected vehicles are entitled to a cooling system flush and refill and a warranty extension on the heater core to six years or 105,000 miles from four years or 50,000 miles. Affected vehicles may have poor heater performance. " Ford motor CO acknowledges a manufacturer's defect; however, after three escalated demand letters and three escalated demand phone calls, Ford motor CO refuses to honor their warranty and make the $2600 in necessary repairs to get the 2007 Ford Edge with 57,000 miles back on the road because, Ford says, the warranty expired on may 1, 2013. This equipment issue occurred Fri., Jan. 18, 2013.
#4 - Equipment problem of the 2011 Ford Edge
The car involved was a 2011 Ford Edge. While making a turn the vehicle suddenly stalled out without warning, luckily the car coming towards me slowed in time and I was able to coast to the middle lane. Check engine light appeared and also a wrench symbol. After a few minutes I restarted the car and it did turn on, I was driving without issues, when going 45 mph the vehicle shook and again stalled out. Having my 1 year old son in the car was very frightening, I was terrified I would be hit by another vehicle as the Edge suddenly turns off with no warning. Being we live in a somewhat rural area and having my son, I was determined to make it home, which thank goodness I did safely, unfortunately after stalling out 2-3 more times. My husband took the Edge to the dealership today which they claim it is the throttle body, and since we do not have the extended warranty is $800. After seeing these other posts it seems that there should be a Ford recall. Thankfully no one was hurt, but it can lead to a fatality if the Edge stalls on the freeway or busy road, its very scary. I purchased a new car to feel safe and to have my son safe, I feel far from and I want nothing but to get rid of this vehicle. Something needs to be done. VIN unavailable as my car is still at the dealership. This problem occurred on 10/09/13.

#5 - Equipment problem of the 2011 Ford Edge
The vehicle having this issue was a 2011 Ford Edge. The VIN of this vehicle is 2FMDK3GC8B_. We went to get in the car, closed the door and the driver door ajar warning came on with the door closed. It does on occasion go off temporarily then comes back on. Was told by dealership that Ford has known about problem for about a year. If this is the case there should be a recall for the part. This issue happened on Wed., Sep. 18, 2013.
#6 - Equipment problem of the 2013 Ford Edge
The vehicle having this issue was a 2013 Ford Edge. Engine light went on and coolant high temperature said on the dashboard. My wife was able to drive it home and I check the engine coolant reservoir and found it empty. I went and got my flashlight and saw coolant leak under the engine where the engine base cover is. I called the dealership and spoke to my salesman andrew and he advised me to purchase a coolant at autozone and keep the receipt and bring the car to the dealer first thing in the morning so they could have it check. I am just very disappointed due to the car has barely broken in 744 mile only and just 3 weeks old and I am getting this kinda problem. I hope this is the first and last of my problem with Ford. The failure date was Wednesday, Sep. 25, 2013.

#7 - Equipment problem of the 2010 Ford Edge
Today, my wife brought her 2010 Ford Edge in for the 3rd time in a matter of 3 weeks, to the local dealership. The problem is while she is driving, the check engine light will come on and the engine will stall leaving her stranded in the middle of traffic, after a minute she can restart it but it happens shortly after that. They had replaced a sensor on the last visit but yet again today the light came back on and it stalled several times before she could get it home. This places my wife and others in traffic with her in danger as when the car stalls there is no way to warn other drivers and could cause an accident. I do not believe the dealership has any clue as to what is going on with this vehicle. I have done some research online using google and have found there are many others out there who seem to have had the same problem and no one seems to have a definite reason as to why. This problem occurred on Sep. 2, 2013.

#8 - Equipment problem of the 2011 Ford Edge
The car is a 2011 Ford Edge. The door ajar light stays on even when I slam the drivers door again. The mechanic said that corrosion gets inside the door lock so he sprayed it. Just 2 days later the warning light came on again. Very disappointed in Ford. This equipment issue occurred Monday, Aug. 19, 2013.
#9 - Equipment problem of the 2011 Ford Edge
The vehicle was a 2011 Ford Edge. Driver side door latch is not recognizing that the door is shut. Keeps saying door is ajar when it is clearly closed. As a result, I have to disconnect my battery every time I exit the vehicle to keep my battery from dying since the interior light stays on. When driving, the car door does not lock, the interior light stays on and the warning indicator incessantly beeps. Also, the awd went out on the vehicle in the middle of heavy traffic, causing me to have to stop in the middle of the road because I obviously couldn't accelerate. This has happened multiple times. I took the vehicle to Ford 3 weeks ago and they stated they couldn't find anything wrong with the car, however, not even a week later, it did it again. I, two days ago, had my car towed to the same Ford dealership, where they are now replacing the throttle body. I have a 14 month old child, and the 4 times this has happened, he has been in the car. I have read online that I am not the only one this has happened to, yet there are no recalls for this make and model. . . . Disappointed and irritated!. This equipment problem happened on 08/14/2013.
#10 - Equipment problem of the 2013 Ford Edge
We are having a exhaust smell in the cab of our new 2013 Ford Edge. We first noticed it when passing another car quickly and then letting off on the gas and a few seconds later we get a exhaust smell in the cab. This happens all the time. We have also noticed it when we too a 500 mile freeway trip. I have had it into dealer four times. They have replaced the cabin air extractors twice, replaced the exhaust system, applied sealant to body seams, no luck. This makes for a unpleasant vehicle to drive and concerns of breathing fumes. I'm still waiting to be contacted about another attempt to fix. I no Ford is having this problems with some of their other models to. It was May. 15, 2013 when this equipment issue happened.

The vehicle is a 2007 Ford Edge. Vehicle identification number (VIN): 2FMDK49CX7_. First occurrence. Turned vehicle on, shifted in drive to leave parking lot. Did not shift correctly, and felt as if it was in neutral. Turned vehicle off, and back on. It shifted fine. Took vehicle back to dealership, as we had only owned it s month and bought in April 2012. They could not find anything wrong. Over time, this has happened 10-15 more times. The computer also seems to be affected by this as well. Today 7/26/2013, I turned on the vehicle, left it start up, began to go into drive, it stalled, and a powertrain light came on. Mileage computer dash disappeared. I turned the car off. Turned it back on. When I tried to shift it, transmission was very violent. Sat in the parking lot for twenty minutes. Turned the car back on, let it run for 2minutes, put it in drive, and it was completely fine. When I drive up hill, it seems to be using a lot more power than necessary, and my rpms go all the way up to 5-6k. Looking for a shop to have the car looked at, or at the dealership.

#16 - Equipment problem of the 2008 Ford Edge
The vehicle having this issue was a 2008 Ford Edge. My wife was driving her 2008 Ford escape from work on a very busy highway when she stopped at a store got back in started the car she noticed that the airbag light was on speedometer had lines going thew it when she put it into gear it made a real loud banging sound and jerked as she was driving' the car lost compression did not have any power at all. She made it home without getting killed or killing someone I went out to see what was wrong and when I started the car it made a load banging 'when I put it into gear it was even worst we called a tow truck and had it towed where we had bought it at ----- ---- ----- -------- it's the only Ford dealer close and they have a very poor record for backing their warranty's. It sound's to me to be the computer chip I have a warranty on it still so there should be no reason for them not to fix it but I will bet that they say that the warranty doe's not cover the power train but it doe's so if you are having this problem with your 2008 escape do not let the tell you that it is not covered if you have a warranty. The computer chip that operates your power train is part of the power train' if not for that the car would not move unless it was being towed if you work for Ford and see all of these complaint's about the same thing going on with the 2008 escape's what is it going to take before Ford step's up someone to get killed. This problem occurred on Tuesday, May. 21, 2013.
#17 - Equipment problem of the 2011 Ford Edge

#18 - Equipment problem of the 2012 Ford Edge
The vehicle involved is a 2012 Ford Edge. At randon the driver door ajar light & warning will appear. This prevents doors from being locked while the key is in the ignition switch. Door is secure and closed. Warning light will sometimes come on while driving. I am concerned it presents a security issue while driving in some urban areas. Ford dealership where I bought the car said that they had seen the problem before and, since it was outside the warranty period, would cost approx. $300. 00 to repair. This equipment problem happened on April 15, 2013.

#19 - Equipment problem of the 2008 Ford Edge
The car was a 2008 Ford Edge. While driving on highway a big bang noise happens in the car, feels and sounds like I have been hit. The car doesn't stop, keeps driving. Dealers technicians say they can't fix it or don't even know what it is because it doesn't happen all the time. It is such a violent bang and jerk. Only does it right now anyway, on a long drive on a highway. I am over my warranty, so very upset, as my children are in this car everyday. Just bought it and to trade it in I would loose so much money. You need to be doing recalls on this car where there are so many others posting this same problem on the Ford forum. Everyone saying it is transmission and when they replace it, it still doesn't work properly. This is crazy!! Ford do something please!!!!!!!!!!!!. The failure date was 01/01/13.
#20 - Equipment problem of the 2011 Ford Edge
The car involved was a 2011 Ford Edge. Door ajar warning light will not go away when closing the drivers door and occasionally pops on while driving turning on the interior lights. Especially dangerous at night. Multiple reports of this same issue with the drivers door latch specifically on 2011 Ford Edges. In order for the door to close and not have the door ajar warning light come on the driver must loosen the latch before closing the door. Even if one does this, it does not garantee that it would not pop on while driving. Extremely dangerous. It was 12/03/2012 when this equipment issue occurred.
#21 - Equipment problem of the 2011 Ford Edge
The vehicle having this issue was a 2011 Ford Edge. The VIN of the car is 2FMDK4KC0B_. My door sensor light will not turn off, which is keeping my vehicle from locking. The malfunction is with the driver's side of my 2011 Ford Edge limited model. Sometimes you could should the door 20 times in a row and the door still would not lock. Cold temperatures seem to effect the sensor more than a warm day. Ford did replace my sensor on my vehicle. This problem occurred on Wednesday, Oct. 10, 2012.
#22 - Equipment problem of the 2011 Ford Edge
The car involved was a 2011 Ford Edge. The VIN of the car is 2FMDK4KC9B_. This is a preemptive complaint, as I thankfully have not had an accident yet. The myfordtouch system in all 2011 Ford motor CO vehicles are defective. The system has a multitude of defects, but the safety related defect is that the system can spontaneously reboot at any time with no warning to the driver. This can happen at random, and multiple times within a short period of time. When backing up this shuts down the backup camera which could result in injuries to children who get behind the vehicle. At night this causes the screen to suddenly go full white at full backlight, which is extremely distracting to a driver at night. Another safety issue would be when the system reboots when the drive is being guided to an emergency facility or is on the phone with 911. Ford acknowledged the problems to dealerships on oct 20th and informed them not to do anything at this time. Many customers have been reporting these problems on the owner2owner website for the Ford sync system. I am submitting this complaint in hopes it can be dealt with before someone gets hurt rather than after. Thank you. The failure date was Oct. 20, 2010.
#23 - Equipment problem of the 2011 Ford Edge
I have owned a 2011 Ford Edge now for almost 2 months, this came with the myford touch system with sync services. This service has yet to work. After having the dealer have it for a day, they come back and say its a Ford problem that they are looking into. I call sync service and they say the dealer only has to flash the memory and this will fix it. The dealer doesn't have the tools to do this yet. I was even told to take it to another dealer and this is how I found out they need to order cables. They still have not got these and I was told even after they get them now, not to work on any vehicles till Ford gets a fix for it. Why was this system even put into the market if they have these issues!!! how much longer do we have to wait on this and what kind of restitution should be given to the people with this vehicle that was bought with this system that doesn't work. This issue happened on Oct. 9, 2010.
#24 - Equipment problem of the 2011 Ford Edge
The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) was 2FMDK3KC6B_. 2011 Ford Edge limited with myford touch system. Took delivery of this vehicle on 2/23/11. Since, the myford touch system has either operated on a very limited basis, or, and most importantly, has been entirely inoperable. The vehicle has been in dealer service department from 3/10/11 - 3/17/11 and upon further failure of the system, we picked up once again by the dealer on 3/21/11 where it remains, awaiting an inspection by a Ford field service engineer. The dealer initially re-programmed the system, which failed, attempted to upgrade the system software to v2. 7, with no success and then replaced the apim (audio protocol interface module) 3 times, without success. After e-mails to key contacts at Ford, we received a call from Ford's executive offices, who are now coordination the further repair attempts. Have been advised that if repairs do not remedy the problem, that they will have to consider other alternatives. We assume that is replacing the vehicle, but they would not yet commit to such. This issue has left us with an entire lack of faith in Ford and the quality of its vehicles. This equipment issue occurred Wednesday, February 23, 2011.
#25 - Equipment problem of the 2011 Ford Edge
The VIN of this vehicle is 2FMDK4KC7B_. Purchased a 2011 Ford Edge with sync and my Ford touch after the 3rd time the dealer finally upgraded the system on the with the 4th visit with an update,only had the car back less then a week and now the entire system crashed nothing works and I mean nothing took it back to the dealer and was told there is nothing they can do except wait for Ford to come out with a fix. Spent over 40,000 for a lemon and a dealer that does not care. Does anyone have any ideas that could help me out will be greatly apprecciated. This equipment problem happened on Mar. 25, 2011.
