I had been driving for about 40 minutes around 35 miles per hr, on a street. I slowed down to change lanes to enter the freeway ramp.then while the vehicle was in motion, it would began to slow down and lose power. The wrench icon appeared, but was able to steer, around a few feet, into a service station. The vehicle came to a complete stop. I kept the engine running but there was no acceleration. When pressing the accelerator there was no activity. I placed the vehicle in park and turned off the ignition. Maybe one minute later, I restarted the engine. The vehicle started right up. The accelerator worked properly. Instead of entering the freeway I took another route home, which was about 15 miles away. I had the vehicle taken to a Ford dealership the next day which was 4/11/2019. After inspecting it, Ford stated they could not identify any problems. I have around 76,000 miles on the vehicle. I am very much afraid to drive this vehicle, because of the safety danger that it pose. I am returning it back to Ford for further inspection. I did not receive any warning before the vehicle loss acceleration. I would not have been able to avoid a crash, if there would have been the usual traffic or if I would have entered the freeway as planned.

I had been driving (traveling nurse) back and forth 3 X weekly to a nursing job. The low tire light. I aired the tire for several days until I could carry it to a tire shop. I was told it was the rim. The rim was repaired. Six months later the low tire light comes on again. I carry it to the Ford dealership and the rim is cracked again. Once again it is sent off for repair. February the low tire light comes on again with the air losing 3 - 15 pounds of air a day (I'm a traveling nurse) and my car goes back to the dealership and the guy tells me it is a fracture in the very same rim. He tells me that the only way it is fractured is if I hit something but I haven't hit something. He tells me that the back tire is prone to being fractured and I tell him I only had the tires rotated 4 days earlier. He tells me it will cost me $1400 plus a new tire and I tell him I don't have that. I've seen them on amazon for $400. He tells me he will have to charge me for a new tire. I tell him my tires have road hazard somewhere else. All 4 rims have been on my car since the day I bought it. This rim has now been fractured twice and Ford will not honor it's own warranty. They have no problem with a nearly 60 year old nurse driving 100 miles to care for someone dying walking out to a flat tire every single day.

On July 31, 2017 in my 2014 Ford Edge I slowed down to turn right into a parking space at an elementary school, and all of a sudden the car took flight over the curb and sped into the woods. Scared and shaken I was trapped in the car with trees blocking the front doors. I was able to get out of the car by climbing into the backseat where I was able to open the door. The car was not drivable and had to be towed. This acceleration is very scary and I will not feel comfortable driving this car again! what if children would have been in the way?

I was driving on barnsville road in dickerson Maryland. I felt that my car dropped down and heard a scrapping sound and the car veered to the right on to a field. I got out and found the aluminum wheel on the grass with the tire off the wheel. When the tow truck came I saw that the core of the wheel had totally sheared off from the exterior of the wheel. The tire had no sign of puncture. I did not hit any objects or pothole. There was no warning before the event. The Ford dealer blamed the aluminum wheel failure on a dent in the wheel, which does not explain the symmetrical total separation of the core of the wheel from the exterior as if some one had taken a saw and separated the wheel. It was that clean of a cut. I have the wheel and the tire for further investigation.

Turning right out of parking lot touched curb plastic wheel covering just rippled like a coke can crushed. Had to replace whole wheel. Should either be able to replace plastic part by itself or do not use plastic covering. Ridiculous for what we paid for the car. Cost $1,100 to fit a piece of plastic on a new car. Had to buy new wheel.
