Ford Edge Recalls
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.
In the affected vehicles, the halfshaft retention clip may not have been properly installed. As a result, without prior warning the halfshaft may move outward and disengage from the linkshaft while driving. This would result in loss of engine power to the drive wheels. Dealers will inspect the vehicles to make sure that the halfshaft is properly retained. If it is not, dealers will replace the linkshaft and also replace the halfshaft if it shows evidence of spline damage.
Vehicles equipped with a 2.0L engine are being recalled because a crack may develop in the fuel line pulse damper housing. This could result in a fuel odor, weepage, or a continuous leak while the fuel system is pressurized. Any fuel leak increases the risk of a fire. Dealers will replace the affected fuel line with one that does not include a damper. This recall supersedes NHTSA recall #12V438000. All vehicles repaired under the previous recall need to have the current remedy applied.
Ford Edge Reviews
2008 Ford Edge heater and ac comes on and works great but the blower is not moving the air thru the vents very well, always feels like its on low speed.
Best Crossover I have ever owned.
The Cadillac of Crossovers. Affordable, stylish, sporty and excellent comfort. Only drawback is a couple of blindspots. But I just take more care before pulling out into traffic.
