Uncovering the Most Common Ford Edge Problems

BY: Eduardo Porta, Fremont Foreign Auto

The Ford Edge, with its car-like handling and SUV versatility, appeals to Fremont drivers needing a do-it-all family vehicle. However, as with any popular model, the Edge has its share of vulnerabilities. The technicians at Fremont Foreign Auto commonly diagnose and repair recurring issues to keep local Newark Edge owners on the move.

As an Edge owner, staying up to speed on potential problems equips you to spot symptoms early. Catching small issues before they snowball into major repairs also saves money and hassle down the road. Read on as we break down the most common Ford Edge problems reported by Newark drivers.

Transmission Troubles

Vehicles: 2007-2015 Edge

More than just slipping gears plague Ford Edge transmissions. Delayed engagements, harsh shifts, and complete failures happen most often in 2008 models. Diagnosing problems starts with a transmission fluid level and condition inspection. Then we use onboard diagnostics to check for trouble codes pointing to specific damaged components.

If a transmission must be replaced, we typically recommend installing a remanufactured unit. These factory-rebuilt transmissions often provide the most cost-effective repair solution for vehicles with extensive wear or mileage at the time of failure.

Brake Booster Defects

Vehicles: 2007-2015 Edge

Brake boosters intensify the pressure applied when the driver steps on the brake pedal. But in Edge vehicles, these components wear out prematurely, leading to increased stopping distances and spongy brake pedal feel.

Testing brake boosters involves looking closely to ensure the sealing gaskets prevent vacuum leaks over time. Using diagnostic scans, we also check for proper activation and output signal voltages from sensors connected to the booster unit. Faulty equipment gets replaced with reliable, lasting components.

Fuel Tank Corrosion

Vehicles: 2009-2010 Edge

Ford issued recalls on 2009 and 2010 Edge models concerning potential fuel tank corrosion leading to dangerous leaks and fires. As with any auto manufacturer notice, owners should follow recall instructions and bring vehicles to dealers for inspection and recommended repairs right away.

Supporting Fremont Edge owners, our technicians thoroughly inspect fuel tanks and lines for corrosion damage or leaks. We then make necessary repairs or replacements, including fuel tank unit substitutions as outlined in the recall specifications for these vehicles.

Electrical Gremlins

Vehicles: 2011-2013 Edge

Various electrical issues plague these model year Edges even with average mileage and use:

  • Door ajar warning lights staying illuminated
  • Windows and radio functions cutting out intermittently
  • Battery draining overnight

We troubleshoot electrical problems using wiring diagrams and methodical checks of fuses, grounds, connectors and harness routing searching for damage. Replacing worn alternators and starter motors often resolves charging system issues.

Air Conditioning Breakdowns

Vehicles: 2011 Edge

With age and increasing mileage, the air conditioning in 2011 Edge models commonly fails. Owners endure progressively weaker cooling from vents eventually blowing only hot air.

Inspecting the AC starts under the hood with the mechanical cooling fans and belt-driven components. Any issues with the cooling system impact vent output drastically. Replacing worn timing belt kits restores function for thousands more miles.

Windshield and Window Headaches

Vehicles: 2007-2008, 2011 Edge

Water leaks and wind noise annoy Edge owners in Fremont’s rainy winter months. Adhesive failures allow water intrusion around windshields, with the most complaints about 2007, 2008 and 2011 models. Power window regulator failures also plague these vehicles, preventing windows from moving smoothly.

Repairing window problems starts with confirming the symptoms. We troubleshoot electrical issues with window controls and motors. Then we address windshield seal defects using urethane adhesives for reliable, long-lasting waterproofing protection.

As you can see, Ford Edge vehicles have their share of vulnerabilities despite strong owner satisfaction overall. But arming yourself with information concerning potential issues makes you better prepared in identifying problems early.

The technicians at Fremont Foreign Auto apply our expertise in precisely diagnosing Edge problems to keep local Newark owners confidently on the road. Don’t hesitate to schedule an inspection should any of these common problems arise. We get to the root causes of issues accurately and efficiently. Then we discuss repair options candidly so owners can make informed decisions about keeping their Edges running smoothly for years to come.
