The following happens roughly a few times a month but cannot be reproduced intentionally-. I pull into my garage, or a parking space, etc and put the car in PARK, the dashboard shows a P for Park but it also shows a message that says car needs to be in park in order to shut off (something a long these lines-) so I have to jiggle it for a few seconds for it to register that it-s in park. It also starts paddle shifting by itself while I am driving!!! I believe what is happening is related to the existing recalls (20V692000 & 14V393000) on Edge-s, but does not include my VIN. Please HELP!

Bought vehicle approx 1.5 years ago from a Chrysler dealer with 28000 miles. Presently about 46000 miles. While driving at city speed, came to a red light and started smelling this odor of burnt differential fluid or rotten egg smell. Immediately called dealer and made appt, for following day. We were told it was not the catalytic converter (which we thought it was and under warranty), but it was the cpu unit. We were also told it would cost us $3000. The warranty on the unit is 5 years or 60000 miles. Whichever comes first. How could this happen on a unit that normally lasts a lifetime. Especially at 46000 miles. We did some research because dealer said they cannot warranty or even check with manufacture on warranty. We found that this is a common defect with the 2014 Ford Edge anf Ford knows the issye and will not do anything to recall or repair any of these issues. We dont have $3000 dollars to repair the issue but am disappointed that we have to make a known repair on a vehicle boutght a year and a half ago that should not happen. There have been news reports on tv about this particular issue on its safety. Https://bc.ctvnews.ca/mobile/Ford-owner-fears-for-her-safety-after-serious-car-malfunction-1.3139692. Please advise and check this news report. Right now this vehicle we spent $22000 thousand is parked and cannot be driven because it's too dangerous

Power transfer unit leaking after 80,000 miles, had the vehicle serviced to replace ptu and new ptu is also leaking. Other driving issues have occurred since including losing power steer capability on while driving at low speeds on uneven roads, unable to accurately recreate the issue as it is very intermittent. All check engine lights, wrench, and advancetrac dashboard warnings flash when electrical and propulsion systems malfunction.

My vehicle lost power. A wrench icon appeared on the dash. I was entering a gas station so the car was in motion and I was able to park. I looked it up and found out it was a throttle body failure.. I had it towed to a Ford dealer. I didnt trust to drive it. Ford could not duplicate the issue but the code was retained.P2111. The issue was not covered under the recall which was disappointing. If it's a known issue it shouldnt matter the yr and VIN#. it's a dangerous issue. It was covered under my extended warranty luckily and was repaired.

From a stop or at low speeds the SUV lunges forward without warning. This has happened several times over the past few months. When SUV was purchased new; the transmission failed and I was without a car for theee weeks. I have maintained the SUV and all issued recalls have been fixed. This is a major issue and anytime I take it to Ford dealership they find no issue. Let me tell you; this is an issue! my last three vehicles have been Ford and would appriciate this issue be solved

Power take off assembly failed according to the service department this is a major problem with this particular vehicle and they can randomly fail regardless of mileage and can actually explode and wipe the transmission out and if that was to happen while driving could be disastrous on the highway but fortunately that did not happen but could have Ford needs to recall and fix this issue

After stopping and putting the transmission shift lever in park, a message will appear on the dash that says the transmission is not in park. But it is. You can click the shift switch and the message will go out within 5-10 seconds. Every once in a while it will stay on for close to 30 seconds. The message doesn't come up constantly. Usually about every couple of times you stop and park. You never know if the transmission is really in park. You have to assume that it is. One of these times it really will not be and someone will get hurt. The dealer doesn't want to fix it until it comes on constantly. Now it is only intermittent. Ford has a tsb on the problem. But they want the customer to pay for the repair. It covers several Ford models over several years. To me this is a safety issue. The owner never really knows if the transmission is in park or not. This has been happening on my vehicle for over a year now.

Pulled into a parking stop at the grocery store; went to put my car in park, shifter went into park, on the dash it was saying I was in reverse. The car was definitely in reverse. Was not able to push in the shifter button to change gears or move the shifter at all. You were able to manually change the gears within the engine, but not with the shifter.

I noticed oil on my garage floor from my wife's Ford Edge. I took it in to my local Ford dealer and was told I need a new P T U.this SUV only has 64,000 and some miles. I had the part replaced to the tune of $2100 plus. I have since found out that this is a common part to go bad on the Ford Edge.I feel this part is defective in design or defective because the parts are not built strong enough to do the job.Ford knows there is a problem with the P T U but will not offer any help to the consumer.
