I can smell gas at the rear of my car. I had my struts serviced and the mechanic noticed corrosion and a fuel leak.he didn't want to drop the tank to get a closer look fr fear it would void a recall repair. I checked for a recall and noted there was one for certain 2009 Edge's but my VIN didn't show one.

"takata recall" I have been calling since June to get my car repaired. I was given a case number and then never contacted. I have called the 2 dealerships in Colorado springs and was told they would get me in a rental car and yet they never have. I have called them every week and continue to get the same response stating they are working on it. I have called Ford motor since June as well and get the exact same response. The airbag light on the vehicle is now on and I have a child that I will not put in this car as it has a recall on it. I have told the dealership about the light and they stated they will contact me when a rental is available.

I received a letter from Ford about Nov/Dec 2017 advising me of the recall issues for my vehicle. I have not been able to speak to a Ford customer service rep, and my dealer nor the finance company know what to do. I received a more recent letter from Ford with options and stating that the parts required are still not available. I need to speak to someone because I am afraid of all the recall issues surrounding my vehicle. I keep the maintenance up on my vehicle but I have been experiencing safety issues while driving, like my vehicle threatens to stop for no apparent reason while I'm driving it. I can't afford to continually pay for repairs or even just be without my vehicle because I'm the only income for my family!

Driving home after I picked up the kids from school. I had a strong smell of gasoline in the cabin of my car. We were cr 108 not even a mile from my dirt road (willie hodges rd) I rolled down the windows, I have 3 kids, and made it home. I saw there was a recall on some 2009-2010 Edges for faulty gas tanks. I looked up the VIN and the only recall I have on my car is for air bags, which they have yet to resolve. I have a feeling my Edge was installed a faulty fuel tank.

I have a 2009 Ford Edge that has had a strong odor of gas. I have it in the repair shop and I am being told that there is a hole/leak in the seal to the gas tank. There has been a recall for this same problem on 07 and 08 Ford Edge. The cost to repair this is going to be $1800 which would include tank, O ring and gasket. I would like to know if my 2009 Ford Edge can be placed on a recall for this problem. Keep smiling tammy solorio updated 10/06/15

We were smelling gasoline in our garage and the smell was coming from car. The car was taken to a local shop where it was hoisted and a gasoline leak discovered at the "seam" of my gas tank. We were instructed to return the car to the dealership as it may have a recall and was clearly a manufacturer defect. My husband called avis Ford who in fact instructed us to bring the car in. We had the car towed at our expense of over $80 only to get to the dealership and have them say there was an error and that the 2009 Edge did not have a recall. There have been recalls on tanks on models from 2007 up to 2014 but apparently not the 09. The leak is apparently a manufacturer defect and not caused by damage to the tank from a foreign object striking it. It is terribly frightening to me to know that Ford has not stepped up to the plate and maybe only a fatality would force them to so. I travel daily with a 30 month and 17 month old in my car and cannot imagine having to get them both out of 5 point restraint car seats in the event of a fire. Is this what Ford is waiting for to acknowledge the unacceptable danger of a gas tank leak. A recall needs to be issued in order to save lives.
