In this article, we will be addressing the 2020 Ford Edge engine problems that have been reported by vehicle owners. These problems include several recurring issues with the 2020 Ford Edge's engine, ranging from coolant leaks to power loss and stalling. These issues demand immediate action to ensure the safety of all who use this vehicle.

Coolant Leaks and Overheating

One prevalent issue involves coolant leaks leading to engine overheating. Real owner complaints highlight instances where white smoke emerged from the exhaust, signaling a blown engine. A mechanic's findings revealed EGR cooler leaks and excessive blow-by, ultimately recommending a new engine.

“I pulled off into a gas station, and when I started the car back up, white smoke started coming out of the exhaust. The engine is leaking coolant on the head, and the company refuses to cover it.” – Alec, 2020 Ford Edge SE owner.

Power Loss and Stalling

Some owners faced power loss while driving, with the engine cutting off at highway speeds, requiring a complete stop to restart the vehicle. This dangerous scenario poses risks to drivers in heavy traffic.

“Loss of power while driving in rush hour traffic. Couldn't maintain 40mph. Had to pull into a parking lot and start walking before the loss of power was driving 40 mph on a city street.” – Anonymous, 2020 Ford Edge owner.

Solutions and Recourse

Wondering how to address your vehicle's issues? Consider potential claims, such as:

  • Deceptive Practices Claim: If you've been misled or deceived during the purchase or repair process, you may have grounds for this claim.
  • Breach of Implied Warranty Claim: Your vehicle should meet certain expectations of quality and performance, and if it doesn't, you may have a case under this claim.
  • Magnuson-Moss Claim: Federal law safeguards consumers who purchase products with warranties, ensuring fairness and remedies for defects.
  • Breach of Express Warranty Claim: Your vehicle should perform as promised under its warranty. If it doesn't, you could have a valid claim.
