2008 Ford Edge ProblemsTransmission (Red) or Power Transfer Unit (PTU) (Brown) Fluid Leaks at Axle Area
A leaking axle shaft seal and / or PTU cover seal can cause transmission (red) or Power Transfer Unit (PTU) (brown) fluid leaks at the axle area. The axle shaft seal and / or PTU cover seal may be leaking and should be replaced as required.
Had the PTU replaced at around 120K after a 2month wait for the part. It cost about 1,800.00!! Here I am with 145K and the PTU is on its way out AGAIN. Two units in 2 years. Visiting Honda dealers this weekend. Never ever will I buy another Ford. The dealers are not very helpful and act like they are surprised at the problem. Ford will not help at all. I had a Honda years ago and not one problem with it. I can't wait to get rid of the Edge.
Bulletin 13N02 - This program extends the coverage of the brake booster to ten years of service or 150,000 miles from the warranty start of the vehicle, whichever occurs first. This is a one time repair program.
In some of the affected vehicles, it is possible for the brake booster to develop a small tear in the diaphragm under certain driving and environmental conditions. If this occurs, the driver may hear a hissing noise while depressing the pedal and may also experience a "spongy" pedal feel without a noticeable effect on braking performance. If the vehicle is not serviced, the tear will eventually expand and the pedal effort required to stop the vehicle will gradually increase. However, in all cases, the fundamental vehicle braking system remains functional.

2008 Ford Edge RecallsFuel Tank
Corrosion due to salt exposure on the fuel tank can lead to a fuel leak in affected vehicles. Near an ignition source, leaking fuel can catch fire and endanger passengers and property. Ford has not yet developed a remedy but will correct the issue when the remedy has been finalized.
The fuel tank may develop a leak near a weld which was contaminated during manufacturing. Dealers will inspect and replace affected tanks free of charge to resolve the concern.
