2021 Ford Edge Problems and Top Complaints – Is Your Car A Lemon?

Steering and structure issues among the top complaints received by the NHTSA from vehicle owners

The 2021 Ford Edge is known for being a family-friendly SUV that fits a tight budget. The automaker claims it is “impressive at every turn.” However, automotive enthusiasts have been vocal about some shortcomings with the model, from the defective steering to the poorly-built structure.

Problems with the Steering

As a smaller SUV, the Edge should be nimble on the road, easy to maneuver, but that’s not the case. Even the biggest critics are downing the Edge’s steering system.

Here is what Car Indigo had to say, “However, we found the steering to be a bit low on feel and feedback.”

Considering the 2021 Ford Edge didn’t receive any mechanical upgrades from the 2020 models, it’s expected to have the same level of craftsmanship. The 2020 Edge suffered from numerous recalls, such as the inadequate rear lubrication that can lead to the loss of vehicle control and the missing bolts on the start/stop accumulator that are leading to a transmission fluid leak. With defects as glaring as these in previous models, it’s only a matter of time before the 2021 Edge shows its true colors too. It’s truly going to be “impressive at every turn.”

Problems with the Structure

The structure of the 2021 Ford Edge did receive some upgrades that were meant to impress, but that hasn’t happened.

In fact, Car and Driver states, “Cabin fit-and-finish needs polish, nondescript handling, rival SUVs look and feel fresher.”

Again, Ford hasn’t had a strong reputation for building quality vehicles lately. As an example, look at the class action lawsuit from a few years ago that showed some Edge models had a defective door latch assembly that was creating false “door ajar” alarms to go off. Not only did this defect keep the doors from locking, but it also drained the battery in the Ford SUVs. If things continue as they have, Ford is preparing for more lawsuits in the future, as it doesn’t seem that much more effort was put into building the newer Edge lineup. Maybe it should be known as “disappointing at every turn” instead.
