  1. I had a similar problem a few months ago where the power was lost suddenly when when accelerating hard and the spanner Icon appeared! It only happened occasionally and Ford replaced a Oil Pressure Solenoid which had shown faulty. I've had no problems since!

    RIP Edge

    Yes I agree with you that they're quite rare and like you said, I haven't seen a new model yet either. Not even in my local Ford garage!

    Are parts/ body panels etc that hard to come by? With my edge under warranty, I have had a recall and a couple of other issues sorted by ford over 3 days because of ordering parts. Although cheesed off at the time it did get sorted relatively handy I suppose. Isn't the running gear, suspension and inside etc from existing Fords?

    I feel my dealer will say the same when it goes in for its service

    This is not what I want to be hearing. I put plenty of extras on my Edge with he hope of maybe keeping it when my pcp plan comes to an end in September next year.

    Rear discs

    Hiya Dave, i'm just wondering if you've done anymore about the condition of the rear brakes. I've got the same problem with my rear disks which I noticed really after about 3000 miles. My Edge is at nearly 12000 miles now and due a service in September. I'm thinking Ford may try and get me to pay for new pads and disks as its a wear and tear part. Anyone else's thoughts regarding this will be greatly appreciated. thanks in advance
  7. By the way, does anyone see the manual? what does it say?
  8. I've had the "check adaptive headlamps-see manual" warning come up a handful of times when starting up! I sense it only seems to happen if I start the engine rather quickly when I feel the electrics need a few seconds to settle and in the case of the adaptive headlights, adjust into position. I have done a restart and the warning has gone so upto now that's my theory 😣
  9. well i'm relatively pleased with my Edge. 67plate titanium auto with 20"wheels in grey. It looks good and I enjoy driving it. I've had a recall on the aircon pulley recently done and a couple of other issues which I got sorted at the same time. It hasn't let me down so am pleased with it. I don't know whether I will keep it after 3 years mainly because of the tax penalty which I have to pay until year6. I'll see nearer the time what deals are out there. maybe the inside is a bit plasticky. I don't think its that bad and you can have a load of extras for much less than say a german car of similar size. If you get one with the Lux pack u might be pleasantly surprised.
  10. Yes as Trent Edge said. The set up and use of this feature is great and should be simple enough following the instructions
  11. Hello, I mentioned as others have said about a "Flapping" noise from underneath my Edge when driving at speed especially on a windy day. Well thanks to "Hamster" being so helpful and mentioning a Technical Service Bulletin 2066/2018 which was to do with the clips that hold some undershields, I have had these clips replaced today and after my test drive things seem hopeful that the problem is solved. I'll let you know if things change but hopefully this can solve other cars similar problems. Thanks again Hamster
  12. My aircon pulley was replaced but they were not happy with it when testing so they ended up replacing the whole pump apparently which was an easier part to get hold of! They did have the car for 3 days which probably had something to do with the decision although a couple of other things were being done at the same time!
  13. UPDATE: My Edge has been to the dealers and they have replaced an Oil Pressure Solenoid. I've given it a run and seems ok so far although the power loss was only happening occasionally. Time will tell but I'm confident they have identified the right part! I will update again if anything changes in relation to this! Thanks
  14. Anyway I phoned my local Ford dealer asking if I could bring the car down for a diagnostic check and they said no! They couldn't fit me in but said I have breakdown cover if there is a problem. I've taken the car out for a long journey since and had no problem at all. Maybe it isn't all bad!! I'll keep you updated when it goes in for recall and diagnostics check next week. thanks
