Bad Engine Created an Unsafe Ride

I have joined the defective engine club. My 2018 is getting a new engine due to coolant leaking into cylinders. Nice going Ford. I have an extended warranty paying for this and car rental. My next question, what else besides my third set of rotors on the brakes is going to happen to this car. I now don't trust it for long trips alone on deserted highways. I am probably going to get rid of it and do to either Honda Toyota or Volvo. I am a caregiver and this engine defect could have had serious medical concerns for the person I was transporting if it had died on the freeway. This car could have been a death trap as the person cannot walk, is diabetic and in frail health. Twice it over heated and I had to pull over in busy traffic, this is not good. The heater stopped working on the vehicle and I heard water sloshing around behind the dashboard. I am having brake rotors replaced for the third time. The dealership is being very cooperative in this matter and doing everything to make it right.


Buyer beware; engine failure at less than 160k

BUYER BEWARE. I bought a used 2018 2.0 Edge Titanium. While previous owners can harm the car, with ignorant owners and those who do not properly maintain cars; but this was Carfax certified and had maintenance records every 5,000 for oil changes, transmission oil changes at less than 100k miles, spark plug changes... etc. I started seeing issues with the vehicle around the 140k mark. Check engine light would come on intermittently and were small codes. I have not owned this vehicle for more than 10 months and over the weekend, the car failed... total engine failure. A mechanic said that there was a major issue with the timing chain, and that with this many miles, I have a better shot at just replacing the entire motor. Keep in mind this is a $6000+ replacement at my local dealer... and I'm sure the final bill will be over that. I am having many of the issues that others are stating. From what I can tell Ford even knows that these issues are present with the vehicle, but will not recall for them. I still owe $16,000 on the vehicle and it's not even worth $5,000 now. They do not hold value well, and mine couldn't break 160k miles after being properly maintained. Please be advised and stay away from this model.


Cruise control will not work. Some of t

I have a 2018 Edge Titiaum with just over 15,000 miles. Could not get the cruise control to work. Dealer just informed me it is going to need a module costing over 17,000 , plus 300.00 labor. Seems this part should last longer than 15.000 miles.
