  1. I’m not sure, it would be worth asking a Mechanic though. When they needed to verify if it was my flex plate they had to take apart the whole engine to get to it you can’t just see it.
  2. I’m not understanding your question

  3. I just went through this on my 2016, 76,000 miles. This is a recall on the 2017’s. My short block was replaced, I’m surprise they wouldn’t take it apart first to see if the short block needs to be repaired. This is a defect. I called Ford myself as recommended by the Ford dealership who had 3 other cases of the same issue, 2 were 2015’s. They said they would stand behind me. When you call you need to get a case number to investigated. It sounds like the dealership did not do this for you, a bit shady. Ask for a case and let the dealership know you know the 2017’s already have recall for this and that several 2015’-2018’s are having the same issue. Then report this to NHTSA, this is where we get enough complaints to get ours exalted. Also let the dealership know that you are reporting this as you have read their reports as well, I encourage you to investigate. I was calm and let them know my disappointment as I traded in my Ford to purchase a new Ford, the Ford company paid for 1/2, total price was $5700, and the dealership I purchased from threw in new spark plugs, oil change, and any other washers Etc that need to be replaced. I’m keeping the receipt in thoughts that it will be recalled eventually. Remember only the dealership should repair otherwise if it’s recalled and you received a new short box Etc from a non authorized Ford mechanic you will not get your $$ back. Good luck!

    2015 Edge SEL flex plate

    My 2016 has a cracked flex plate, just over warranty

    Cracked Flex plate

    Just over warranty and a rattling started while idling. Ford said it’s a cracked Flex plate, no reason for this happening, 2017’s are being recalled for this. They are saying minimum of $4400 to fix! Possibly $9000, are they crazy?? How can they make a customer pay for their defect? Told me to trade it in- sad

  7. This is happening to my 2016 as we speak! My regular mechanic told me that there is no reason for a cracked flex plate except a manufacturer error. Why are the 2017’s being covered and not 2015-2018? They hold you hostage by not allowing you to have anyone else fix it by threatening the chance of a recall. Anyone else having this issue? I’m at 76,000 miles
