Problems with transmission, traction control

by on
Vehicle: 2007 Ford Edge SE 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)

I bought mine 9 months ago with 40,000 miles. It has been to the dealer three times for transmission fluid leaks and twice for apparently random activation of traction control while drving about 60 mph and causing sudden deceleration -- not a good thing on an interstate! Two dealers could not recreate the traction control issue and told me to take it home. Looking to trade it in.

Vehicle: 2007 Ford Edge SE 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)

I purchased this car with 25,000 miles from a GM dealership. I enjoy driving the car and like its looks. Very roomy inside for front and rear occupants and I am a big guy. Storage area behind the second row seats is somewhat small, probably because I had a minivan before. I have had to have the left rear wheel hub/bearing and the right front bearing replaced. An occasional hesitation has developed when climbing gradual grades at a constant speed. I thought this was related to the front wheel bearing because it stopped for a few weeks after having the bad front bearing replaced. It has now returned. I don't think it is an engine problem, more likely tranny or drivetrain. 55K miles now

Vehicle: 2007 Ford Edge SE 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)

The Edge is a good overall vehicle. Major complaints - CD changer broke, should never be sold in anything - old Delphi junk. 36,000 mile warranty too short compared to other cars available. Cheap Mazda/Ford rotors rusted after 18 months, but I was over the mileage warranty, so I paid $200 for replacement. Just received Ford recall that the coolant system may cause engine damage. Overall-not a bad vehicle if you buy low end model. Not sure if it's worth it for the fit/finish/warranty and lack of quality in the SEL/Limited versions. When this one is paid for, probably won't purchase another Ford until they improve warranty. I sent my concerns to Ford and received no help.




Stalls

Vehicle: 2007 Ford Edge SE 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)

My Edge has stalled on me several times usually @ stop lights and the Dealer can't find anything wrong with it.Does anybody have the same problem? The tires are very noisy (Hancook)and I had a rear bearing replaced already.




Would not recommend this car

Vehicle: 2007 Ford Edge SE 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)

My Edge is currently being serviced for it's fourth transmission seal and second PTU Assembly. Soon after purchase the interior began to rattle and reveal the cheap material and poor workmanship. The brakes perform poorly and the car continues to pull to the left for no reason. The dealer and Ford offer no support except to tell me the transmission problems are a known Edge defect. AWD is great in the winter, it's quiet, and the engine is powerful. Average 18 mpg. When not in the garage it's a fun car to drive.

Full 2007 Ford Edge Review

What's New for 2007

The 2007 Ford Edge is an all-new midsize crossover SUV with seating for five. A 265-horsepower V6 is standard.

Introduction

The midsize crossover SUV segment is fast becoming as important as the midsize sedan segment, as more and more families are discovering the useful compromise of utility and efficiency these vehicles provide. Ford's first midsize crossover, the Freestyle, didn't go over too well with this audience, however, as its weak V6 engine and conservative styling sent its coolness meter plunging to minivan levels. But we think it will be different for the 2007 Ford Edge, which seats only five passengers but offers a powerful V6 and a striking exterior design that could never be called uncool.

Ford's new midsize SUV shares most of its mechanicals with the Mazda CX-9, including its new double-overhead cam 3.5-liter V6 rated for an impressive 265 horsepower. However, the Edge has a different six-speed automatic transmission than the Mazda, along with a simpler, viscous-coupling all-wheel-drive system. Additionally, with only two rows of seating, the Ford rides on a slightly shorter wheelbase and is 14 inches shorter nose to tail. Passenger room is generous in both the front and rear seats, and features like a telescoping steering wheel and reclining rear seats ensure long-haul comfort. The overall interior design is fairly bland, but families will find it functional day-to-day, and a full set of side airbags keeps everyone safe. Out on the road, the Ford Edge is one of the quicker SUVs in its class and manages to provide both sporty handling and a smooth, quiet ride. As with most of its peers, off-roading is not really within its grasp, but equipped with AWD, it should make a fine winter-weather vehicle. Unfortunately, the Edge has one major weakness: its brakes. Pedal feel is solid, but stopping distances are much longer than they should be in panic situations.

Aside from that, the 2007 Ford Edge offers a solid package for the would-be midsize-SUV buyer who doesn't need a third-row seat. Its cabin furnishings aren't as upscale as those of peers like the Honda Pilot, Hyundai Santa Fe and Toyota Highlander, but the Ford offers much better driving dynamics. That leaves the Mazda CX-7/CX-9, Mitsubishi Endeavor and Nissan Murano as its closest competition. While the Edge can't match the hard-core athleticism or interior style of the Mazdas, it offers a solid all-around package, combining equal parts comfort, power and space in one attractive body. As likable a vehicle as the Ford Edge is, it's hard for us to recommend a mainstream family vehicle with questionable brakes. We hope Ford will see fit to address this issue soon.

Body Styles, Trim Levels, and Options

A midsize crossover SUV, the 2007 Ford Edge seats five and comes in three trim levels -- SE, SEL and SEL Plus. The base SE is decently equipped but doesn't offer much access to options. Included are 17-inch alloy wheels, privacy glass, automatic headlights, air-conditioning, a four-speaker CD stereo with an MP3 player jack, and full power accessories. Stepping up to the Edge SEL provides body-color door handles and mirrors; foglamps; metallic interior trim; a leather-wrapped steering wheel; a power driver seat; an in-dash CD changer; a trip computer and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. The SEL Plus adds heated outside mirrors, leather upholstery, front seat heaters, driver-seat memory, a power passenger seat that folds flat, a quick-release mechanism for the folding rear seats and dual-zone automatic climate control (with a cabin filter).

Major options for the SEL and SEL Plus include the Vista Roof (a power front sunroof and fixed rear skylight), an upgraded nine-speaker sound system, a DVD-based navigation system and a rear entertainment system. The factory entertainment system cannot be combined with the Vista Roof; however, Ford dealers can install a dual-screen system that mounts the displays in the front headrests. Satellite radio and Class II towing preparation are available on all Ford Edges.

Powertrains and Performance

Every Ford Edge comes with a 3.5-liter V6 rated for 265 hp and 250 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission is standard. All trim levels are available with either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. On AWD models, power flows primarily to the front wheels until wheel slippage occurs, in which case nearly 100 percent of it can be redirected to the rear. Gas mileage is average for a midsize crossover SUV, with an 18 mpg city/25 mpg highway rating for the front-drive Edge and a 17/24 mpg rating for the AWD. Properly equipped, the Ford Edge can tow up to 3,500 pounds.

Safety

All major safety equipment is standard on the 2007 Ford Edge, including antilock disc brakes, stability control (with rollover avoidance logic), front-seat side airbags, full-length side curtain airbags and a tire-pressure monitor. Rear parking sensors are optional on SEL and SEL Plus models.

Interior Design and Special Features

Ford's designers didn't take many risks with the Edge's interior, and the result is a rather ordinary-looking decor with average materials and a sea of look-alike buttons from the Ford parts bin. Still, it's a functional and well-organized setup. The telescoping steering wheel offers a huge range of adjustment, allowing drivers of any size to get comfortable. The rear seats recline, making it easy to stretch out on long road trips, and the optional Vista Roof imparts an airy feel. Cargo space is a healthy 32 cubic feet with the backseat in use. Folding the seats opens up a not-so-flat cargo floor and a max capacity of just under 70 cubes -- considerably less than most competitors.

Driving Impressions

The new 3.5-liter V6 won't blow you away with its low-end response, but once it revs up a bit, the 2007 Ford Edge feels pretty quick. Shifts from the six-speed automatic are smooth and well-timed, though we wish there was better manual access to gears. (You're limited to "D," "O/D off" and "L.") Although the Edge isn't tuned to be a serious athlete, its reflexes are nonetheless impressive for a 4,300-pound vehicle. Body roll is predictable, and the steering feels right whether you're blasting down the highway or entering a tight turn. Ride quality is smooth and composed, and the cabin stays very quiet in most situations. The brakes are the major disappointment: Pedal feel is progressive, but during instrumented testing conducted at our test track, a 2007 Ford Edge test vehicle needed 152 feet to stop from 60 mph. Its competitors stop in the 120s.
