    2018 Edge Front Suspension Noise

    It has been almost a year since this thread was active.The noise discussed appears to be one that only becomes apparent when it is warm outside. (At least that is what I am discovering with my 2018 Edge.) Now that the summer is almost over I wonder if anyone found the cause and fix for the noise. Unfortunately I have been unable to get my Edge's noise evaluated at a dealer. It seems that the noise only occurs when it is a weekend or when I am on a road trip hundreds of miles from home. My dealer listened to the video posted above but said that they have to experience it firsthand to do anything about it.

    2018 Edge Front Suspension Noise

    I'm going to try to get the car to make the noise on Tuesday morning then take it in to the dealership. So I will let you know what I find. I live in Minnesota and heard the noise during a long drive last week when it was 65 degrees F. Next week it will only be in the 40s, so I shall see what happens. Does anyone know what the failure mode is with whatever causes this noise? Can it leave the vehicle disabled or is it merely an annoyance? And, now that I am out of the 3 year 36,000 mile warranty period, does anyone know if this would be covered by the longer powertrain warranty? Thank you.

    2018 Edge Front Suspension Noise

    My 2018 Edge SEL AWD makes the same noise but it never happens at the dealership. Have you confirmed that it is the hangar bearing so that I can tell the dealer to look at this item specifically?

    Really Dead Battery after 24 hours

    Dear enigma-2, perhaps I was not clear, but I had been traveling when my battery failed so I took the Edge to the nearest Ford dealer. When I returned home, I took it to my selling dealer who found the battery problem.

    Really Dead Battery after 24 hours

    Thanks everyone for your suggestions. I just got back from the dealership where I bought the car. They found a dead cell in the battery and replaced the battery, so I hope this fixes my problems. Time will tell.
  6. I bought a 2018 AWD V6 Edge three weeks ago. Earlier this week, at 850 miles, I parked the vehicle on Sunday after a four hour drive and left it until Monday night. I opened it to get something out and locked it. On Tuesday night I went to open the car and the battery was completely dead. I was unable to use the key fob or Keyless Entry to open the car, so the tow truck driver had to use the "real" key to open the door. He jump started the Edge and it started right up, but the clock, date, radio stations, etc. were all reset to factory settings. I drove it 50 miles to the nearest Ford dealer who did a complete check of the electrical system: battery check, check for shorts, etc. They said they could find no codes or anything to explain why the battery went dead: no shorts, battery good, etc. They said I must have left a door open or something, but I know I didn't, and anyway, I thought the electrical system would shut off anything automatically after 10-45 minutes. So, does anyone have an idea what I should do next? My wife doesn't want to drive the car if the battery can go dead in 24-48 hours with no identifiable cause. My local dealer is reluctant to run diagnostics since they say the warranty does not cover it if the car isn't broken. p.s. if I am posting in the wrong forum, let me know and I'll repost correctly. Thanks.
