    2020 Edge ST Transmission/Powertrain Issue(s)

    I had something somewhat similar with mine. It bucked under light acceleration and turned out to be converter lockup failure. They disabled TC lockup and test drove it to prove it out and the bucking was gone. Ended up getting a new torque converter and problem solved.

    Auto Stop/Start fail to restart

    Nope your right it is 3 year. battery was only 6 months though so shouldn't have been a problem. My old AutoZone dualasts were the lifetime. Turns out that Advanced doesn't honor web purchase warranties in store.... they did a customer return and I had to buy a new battery at current price, They managed to use competitor price match to keep the price the same though. Problem seems to be the case was cracked at the positive pole possibly causing oxidization. New battery installed and all is fine again.

    Auto Stop/Start fail to restart

    SO the last few days I had the car fail to start after returning from a week vacation. I couldn't get a good battery voltage reading, meter showed 8.9V and im sure that was not correct. I pulled the battery and tossed it on my charger but had to run out for 30 mins. I came back it it showed fully charged. Battery tested 12.6V after resting it for 30 mins so i re-installed and car started fine. The next day the car barely started after work and auto stop/start is disabled. No system warnings or errors, even when checking with a scan tool. I suspect the new battery is a dud and cant supply enough amps.

    ST Overheating

    Any evidence its been touched before? I would look at bolt heads at the thermostat housing. Possibly was previously tuned and a lower temp thermostat installed then removed by the previous owner. Could be air locked if that's the case.

    Auto Stop/Start fail to restart

    I did the 8 hour method. Let it sit undisturbed for 8 hours. I can try FORscan later also. Never did the brake pedal method before but I guess it wont hurt.

    Auto Stop/Start fail to restart

    In the last 2 days I have had my auto stop/start fail to restart the car twice. The first time it happened I was at a light and when it turned green I got a system chime and a fault message saying "Checking braking system". The car did not restart and i was forced to put it in park and hit the start button. Car started normal and no faults were stored. Auto stop/start then operated normally for the remainder of the day. The next day I stopped at a light and auto stop triggered, I had a hunch it was going to do it again so before the light turned green i lifted my foot off the brake and got a blinking battery light with no chime. I set it to park and it started normal and operated normal for the rest of the day. Battery is 3 months old and shows 12.6V as it should and no other obvious issues to indicate a battery problem. Anyone have similar problems?

    New battery and odd signs it was needed

    Same thing happened to mine. Also went into deep sleep a few times. No auto stop/start for months now either.

    Thud from rear? slowly coming to a stop

    Hopefully its not the same problem I'm having. I believe the viscus coupler at the RDU is failing or the RDU itself. During driveshaft engagement and disengagement it had a grumble/grind and sometimes a thud. Its most noticeable during light acceleration around a turn and when coming to a stop. Slowly gotten worse and is now to the point where I'm feeling drag from the rear end. Dealership attempted a TSB reflash and it just got worse. Also have a leaking oil pan and waiting a updated oil pan replacement. Oil leak got so bad its burning on the exhaust.

    2019 AWD Titanium 13mph 'thud'

    I'm getting a low frequency grumble or a series of thuds at around 13mph or so. I suspect it is the RDU when the driveshaft either disengages or engages. It can be felt on accel and decel and is sometimes accompanied by a torque vectoring sensation as if a rear wheel may be getting more power than it should. It only lasts a moment but has become more and more obvious. The grumble can be heard/felt even over bassy music at volume level 10 with the B&O system. I'm dropping the car off soon to have the leaking oil pan fixed for the 3rd time (1st time TSB was not accomplished, 2nd time they blamed my Ronin oil plug). I plan to show them in a test drive and see what they think.

    Standard or Premium petrol for your ST?

    I run 93 only. I always have tons of stop and shop gas reward points so I generally only pay $35-40 per tank.

    I've started to hate my ST

    I find the auto start/stop to be very tolerable in my edge. Rented a HRV and the "idle stop" was awful. The car shook and hesitated badly on restart and it lacked so much power already that it made just staying with traffic impossible. My edge its fairly unnoticed when it shuts off and restarts are quick and cause very minimal acceleration delay.

    Edge ST 2021 miles per gallon MPG

    Your case is not typical. You will find most get around the EPA estimated mileage for both city and highway. Even my short commute and no warm up results in nearly the claimed city mileage. Also I use sport mode very often and wore out my tires in just 15k miles.

    Edge ST 2021 miles per gallon MPG

    Agreed. My commute is 3 miles each way and I average 16mpg. Highway I get 24mpg (85mph Average)

    Is this a good deal on this Ford Edge ST?

    The market is crazy. Its approaching what I paid for mine as a factory order. I get dealer letters offering 90% of my original purchase price from December 2018.
