Over the past 2 months my 2015 Edge (not even a year old - 14K miles) has grabbing breaks. I have owned (way too many) new cars in my life, this is the first car i have ever experienced where i lean in to do a slow break and it grabs unnaturally.

 

Is this something that is a known issue?

If they are indeed grabbing and thus "pulsing", and not simply biting hard initially, then there could be an issue with the pad/rotor/caliper.  The 2015+ have been known for the intial hard bite, but no other issues noted thus far ...

AHHHH! Hard Bite describes it perfectly!

 

This a warranty thing?

I try to grab breaks whenever I can, but sometimes I'm too busy to take a break and have to keep working.

 

 

(sorry - that is my #1 pet peeve)

HA! And my #1 pet peeve are the Spelling Nazi's that clutter up a thread. Did my spelling mistake totally throw you or did you have a clue as to what my issue was?

 

To all else, is this known issue something covered under warranty or is this considered normal wear an tear?

No not a warranty thing, it's a characteristic of the brakes.  No harm in having the dealer take a look anyway.  Brakes are usually 1 year/12K IIRC.

I believe there's a TSB out for this.

Thanks for this info.... my 2015 has the most overly sensitive brakes of ANY vehicle I've ever driven.  At low speeds, it's as if the brake pedal is an ON/OFF switch, no modulation at all.

When I took it in for it's first service and explained the issue, the Service Writer told me he'd never heard of such a problem and that I "just needed to get used to a new car"!  Next time I go back, I'll advise him, he "needs to become familiar with the product he's servicing".

Dropped the Edge off today for regular service. Told them about this issue and gave them the printed out info from the link above. The new booster is on 'serious backorder and may take several months to get in'.  So, its ordered and i am on the waiting list.

 

If your breaks grab/bite, i'd suggest getting with your service dept and getting on the list of parts.

As long as we're piling on, it's Nazis (plural) not Nazi's (possessive).

I have to agree. Previous cars for the past 20 years have been Japanese and all very reliable with no real issues. My Edge will be a year old come Thanksgiving. Its already had the STALLING issue taken care of and now this. It almost SEEMS like we are beta testers and that many of these edge's are not ready for prime time. Don't get me wrong, i love it but its come with extra 'baggage' that i am simply not used to.

I think Ford is either using the wrong suppliers or cutting the contracts too thin - either way they're getting way too many bad parts the last several years.  From gas tanks to throttle bodies to headlights to transmission sensors to door latches.   I thought the problems were mostly due to a lot of new platforms and european based suppliers and/or designs but they've have more than enough time to fix that kind of stuff.
