Purchased This Car Brand New. The Transmission Has Been A Problem From The Start. Driving Under Normal, Dry Conditions When Throttle Is Decelerated And Then A Slight Pause Before Acceleration The Car Slams Hard Into Gear When You Begin To Throttle Again. The First Event The Dealership “flashed The Computer” And Said That Would Fix It. The Second Incident Has Netted No Results. The Dealer Had My Car For 10 Days Without Even Looking At It Claiming A Lack Of Certified Technician. They Set An Appointment For Me On 7/30/2012 And By 8/9/12 Had Still Not Looked At My Car. *tr

Vehicle Experiences Extremely Hard Transmission Shifts. When Slowing Down And Going To Speed Back Up, Transmission Appears To Shift Into Wrong Gear Causing Vehicle To Bang Hard Then Shift Into Correct Gear To The Point The Entire Vehicle Shakes/feels Like You Were Hit. Vehicle Also Engages Hard Into 1st/2nd Gear When Coasting And Reapplying Gas. I Have Experienced The Hard Shift Into Gear Issue Multiple Times (at Least 10-15) And 1st/2nd Gear Engage Bump Everyday. This Is A Problem That Continues To Get Worse And Will Probably Lead To Transmission Failure. *tr

After Seeing The Recent Issues W/ The ford V6 Ecoboost Engine, I Thought It Wise To Tell About The 2.0l Ecoboost Engine In My edge. After Owning The Vehicle Less Than A Year, I Was Driving Thru A Neighborhood At A Very Slow Pace, I Started To Make A Right Turn & The Car Simply Died. No Shaking, No Warning. Lost All power Steering & Engine Compression. Turned Off, Restarted & All Was Well. Took To Dealership The Next Week, If We Cant Replicate It We Cant Fix It. Last Month, My Wife Was Turning Right Slowly Into A Parking Lot & It Happened Again. This Time ford Kept The Car For Over A Week Trying To Duplicate The Issue, No Luck. If We Cant Find It, We Cant Fix It. I Was Told It Could Be Numerous Things & No Bulletins Or Fixes At This Time. So My Pregnant Wife Now Drives A Brand New Vehicle That Decides To Die In Traffic While Turning, Maybe In Front Of Oncoming Traffic,. I Have Read Numerous Complaints Online About This Same Thing Happening To Other edge Ecoboost Vehicles, But Alas No Fix. In The Recent Articles I Have Been Reading It Says The 2.0l Ecoboost Engine Has Not Been Affected, I Feel That Is Incorrect. I Think ford Needs To Look Into All Ecoboost Engines & Find A Fix Now Or Replace The Vehicle. *tr

In Stop And Go Traffic At Low Speeds, The Vehicle Has Stalled Multiple Times (11 Times In The Last Year And A Half). The Most Recent Time In Heavy, Slow-moving Construction Traffic. Car Loses All power Without Warning. Loss Of power Steering, Very Tight Brakes, No Acceleration Possible And A Low Oil Warning. I Have To Turn The Car Off And Restart, This Sometimes Works, Other Times I Have Needed The Car Towed Because It Did Not Restart. This Is A Company Car And It Has Been To The Dealership Multiple Times, And Only This Last Week Was Anything Ever Found To Be Wrong. All Previous Times The Stalling Could Not Be Duplicated, And I Was Told Either Nothing Was Wrong With The Car, They Fixed A Part They Thought Might Be The Problem, Or I Must Have Put In Bad Gas. After Stalling A Month Ago, This Past Week A Data Recorder Was Attached And A Defective Oxygen Sensor Was Found In The Emissions System When The Car Stalled For The Dealership. The Oxygen Sensor Was Replaced And They Test Drove The Car. The Stalling Did Not Occur During Their Final Test Drives. I Received The Car Back A Week Ago, Only To Have It Stall Three Times Within 10 Miles Two Days Ago. Almost Was Re-ended By A Semi-trailer Truck This Last Time As I Was In The Middle Of Six Lanes Of Traffic, And With No Steering, Was Helpless To Move. Have Stalled Out In A Gas Station, Rounding Corners In Intersections, At Stop Signs, Driving Down My Street, And Now Four Times On The Highway During Low Speed Traffic Congestion. Having The Car Towed To The Dealership As I Am Too Afraid To Drive It. There Are At Least Four Other Complaints About This Issue On The Nhtsa Website, And It Sounds Like Very Similar To Symptoms Seen In The Gm Recalls. Car Stalls Without Warning In More And More Dangerous Situations. This Issue Needs To Be Addressed By The Manufacturer Because Of Its Dangerously Serious Nature.

On Multiple Occasions While Driving Between The Speeds Of 25mph And 80mph On European Roads/highways The Car Loses Ability To Accelerate Regardless Of Pressure On Gas Pedal. I Had To Pull Over, Luckily Avoiding Cars And Possible Collisions. Car Displayed Yellow Wrench And “awd Off” On Left Side Display. Once In Safe Area I Turned Off The Car, Waited For A Few Minutes And Turned It Back On Without Immediate Incident. This Happened A Total Of 7 Times Within A Week, However, After Contacting ford Service Stateside I Was Told To Go To An Italian ford Dealership. However, I Stopped At Two ford Service Centers Located In Vicenza, Italy And The Mechanics Will Not Touch My Car Due To The Model Not Being Sold Anywhere In Europe. The Problem Stopped Up Until This Past Week Where It Has Happened Again Twice Within 3 Days At, Luckily, Low Speeds And Avoiding All Cars/hazards. We Will Attempt To Bring It To A Local Mechanic In Hopes Of Getting The Problem Fixed As We Are Leaving For The States In Less Than A Month Due To Military Pcs Orders.

This Has Reoccurred 3 Times In The Last 3 Weeks. The Last Time It Happened, I Was Backing Out Of My Driveway And The Car Started Jerking, Wouldn’t Accelerate And The Wrench Light Came On. I Turned The Vehicle Off, Waited A Couple Of Seconds, Restarted It And It Worked Great. The Time Before I Was Going About 55 Mph And The Car Did The Same Thing. I Pulled Over To The Side Of The Road, Turned It Off And Restarted And It Worked Great. I’m Afraid To Travel In The Vehicle. The ford Dealership Said It’s The Electronic Throttle Body And Will Cost $400+/- To Fix.
