Learn if Your Ford Edge Is Subject to a Safety Recall
If you own a Ford Edge, chances are pretty high that it is or has been subject to a safety recall. If you are not the original owner or if you are the original owner and have moved or changed email addresses, chances also are pretty good you may not have received the recall notice.
Wading through recall notices from Ford or the government also may not make it clear if your particular vehicle is subject to one of the many that have been issued over the years.
Your best bet will be to find a site such as DoNotPay that will allow you to search for safety recalls by VIN or with other general information about your vehicle.
Does My Ford Edge Have a Recall?
Thousands of Ford Edge have been subject to recall by the National Transportation Safety Board over the years, including four recalls issued in 2021 alone. A search on cars.com results in four pages of recalls for the Ford Edge, ranging from seat belts to airbags to drive trains and more. All of these are serious safety issues that could cause a crash or lead to severe injury or death in the case of a crash.
In each case, the recall can span multiple years and multiple models, and typically includes the word "certain", which gives the indication that some but maybe not all of a particular model from a particular year would be subject to the recall.
These are just some sample :
|2014 Edge||The 2014 Edge was included in a recall along with Explorers and Tauruses to replace a support bracket for the front-drive axle half shaft.|
|2007-2010 Edge||Th 2007-2010 Edge was recalled with numerous vehicles for a flaw in the driver's side airbag.|
|2020-2021 Edge||The 2020-2021 Edge was subject to a recall as an inadequate lubricant was added that could cause the rear-drive axle to seize.|
Auto manufacturers are required, as best they can, to notify owners of safety recalls, but as cars transfer ownership, registrations transfer from county to county or state to state, car owners move about and change addresses and email addresses, sometimes the manufacturers and dealers are unable to track ownership, so you may not receive a notification. Or maybe you got the notification and just didn't get the work done right away and lost the paperwork.
All of these issues and more could lead to you driving a Ford Edge that could malfunction for a known reason and cause a crash or cause greater injury or even death in the event of a crash. If you didn't get mandated recall work done on your Ford Edge, you could be on the hook for liability in a crash, as well, rather than the manufacturer.
