About Ford Edge
Ford Edge is a mid-size crossover SUV manufactured and marked by Ford Motor Company since 2006. The first Ford Edge was introduced at 2006 Detroit's North American International Auto Show in January. Though it has a not very long history, it has received the 2007 "Best Cars for Families" award, "Top Safety Pick" rating, "2007 Urban Truck of the Year" and " APEL Award" by J.D. Power and Associates. Up to present, it has been through two generations.
The first generation Ford Edge (U387; 2006-2014) was introduced in 2006 as a 2007 model. It was available in four trim levels: SE, SEL, Limited and Sport (debuted at 208 Chicago Auto Show). The Edge mainly was powered by 2.0 L EcoBoost inline 4-cylinder turbocharged gasoline engine, 3.5 L Duratec V6 gasoline engine and 3.7 L Duratec V6 gasoline engine, which were fitted along with a 6-speed automatic transmission. In 2015, an all-new Ford Edge was unveiled as the second generation Ford Edge (2015-present). It still carried over trim levels from previous generation. But it has more engine options including 2.0 L Duratec inline 4-cylinder Turbo-Diesel engine and 2.7 L EcoBoost turbocharged gasoline V6 engine except the same two engines from predecessor. At the meanwhile, a new 6-speed manual transmission is added as well.
Ford Edge Common Problems & Maintenance Tips
As a crossover SUV, Ford Edge has to deal with different kinds of road conditions, which influences its lifespan greatly. We have collected some common problems on it from Edge owners:
First, transmission failure. This is the most common problem happened on Edge. People complained that the transmission would rev higher before it changes gears or engaged into overdrive late and sometimes would never go into the top gear. Not only the shifting gears became hard, even the brakes needed more time to work. Some grinding noise would come from underneath the vehicle and speedometer behaved erratically or did not work at all. Actually, above symptoms are mostly caused by a bad vehicle speed sensor or a transfer case seal.
Second, suspension and braking system went wrong. Common signs of suspension failure included excessive and uneven tire wear, sluggish response or loose steering in vehicle handling as well as rattling or squeaking noises from underneath the vehicle. These are caused by broken trailing arm, axle shaft and sway bar bushing. As for braking failure, brake disc, brake booster and brake caliper kit should be your key concerned auto parts.
If you do not want to encounter some sudden car accidents caused by a blocked driving vision, then you should put your main attention on your windshield wiper. However, the perfect operation of wiper blade cannot make without the help of wiper switch. So you had better put those two on your maintenance.
