    2019 ST - Noise In Rear

    D'oh, never got an email notification on replies. Finding a 2019 to hear will probably be impossible, since there aren't many left out there, but a 2020... I know there are plenty. I'm guessing a 2020 is a better reference, anyway. I guess at this point we're going to ride it and leave it alone. I plan to purchase a Ford ESP, since we want to keep this one for many years to come. We just didn't keep our 2017 Edge Sport, because the residual after lease would have put us $10k backwards.... I'm not dumb, so Ford can have that one back. LOL!

    2019 ST - Noise In Rear

    Well, the dealer confirmed it's the rear drive module and claims it's 100% normal to be as loud as it is.... they actually said ours is very quiet compared to others. Very strange, because we never heard this on our 2017 Sport at all, so I'm guessing there are some new drivetrain components here.

    2019 ST - Noise In Rear

    Thanks! Just found the darn sticker and it says 3/7/19... So it looks like we're part of that production run of noisy units. I guess I'll call the dealer tomorrow to see what they've got to say.

    2019 ST - Noise In Rear

    Thanks for the reply and confirming that was it. I guess is this something that's normal to be loud or was this fixed with a quieter part? My wife is pissed / annoyed with the nose. I'll try to grab a video of the nose later today if possible. I've never really figured out how to tell build dates, but looking around, I find Jan 22 - Mar 9 had noisy units.

    2019 ST - Noise In Rear

    Hey All - We finally plunged and gave back our 2017 Edge Sport and bought a 2019 Edge ST. There aren't a whole lot of different things between the two, so it was an easy transition. I have already found that adaptive cruise control is an awesome thing, and my next vehicle will also have it. We noticed today that often times when you unlock the car, you hear a solenoid, or something that is obnoxiously loud, in the rear end. I think I found a post with a similar experience, but I'm not 100% certain and the post never concluded what the issue was. Our 2017 never exhibited this behavior and this noise is pretty darn loud. This particular noise happens almost every single time you unlock the car. I say a solenoid of some type, because after like 15 or 20 seconds, you'll hear it "engage" at a slightly softer level. Thanks for the advise in advance. -Brian

    Seems to be some good rebates on the SEL. We ended up buying a 19 ST. There was a $6k cash promo and we didn't qualify for any others. They did give me xplan on document fees, so those got wiped out. Just waiting on my bank to give me some money and hopefully pick it up Saturday! 😊

    Leasing must be a real joke right now. Jesus.... payments on a 2020 are obnoxiously high, at least at the dealer I went to. With $5k down, they're talking ~$600/mo. for 10,500 miles. If I buy a '19 ST, I could stretch the loan to 84 months and be almost $100 less per month. We're definitely looking into a '19 over a '20 just from the ownership standpoint. Will probably look into an extended service plan, since the goal is to keep this one far longer than we did the '17. Not sure if there is someone on these forums that can get you them cheap, otherwise I know who to reach out to on the Explorer side. Definitely stopping by a different dealer on Tuesday, as the guy I've worked with there is straight about what he's trying to sell you. The dealer that's in my back yard always hides shit and tries to charge you more than everyone else. I'm also afraid to look at buying stuff from them, strictly because they tried to charge me a $500 "lease acquisition fee" when I bought my Explorer, plus they tried to charge me ~$1k more than what my agreed upon residual was. Ended up driving 50 minutes to the dealer I got it from instead, with no stupid fees charged.

    Thanks for the feedback thus far! We're going to chat with our nearby Ford dealership tomorrow, to see whether or not it's worthwhile to get a '19 or '20 ST. I don't think they have any '19's on the lot, so I don't know that we'll be able to test one. Gonna have to tell them I want to take the '20 Explorer ST out for a spin, though.

    My wife's transmission in her '17 is weird as hell.... tired of brand new cars with transmission issues, quite frankly. Hers will slam hard into 5th gear, sometimes slams hard into 3rd if throttle is low. Took it to the dealer and they claimed they couldn't replicate it, so they did nothing. I'll have to look up the trans problems on the '19 to see what the scoop is there. I know whatever we buy, we're hoping to keep it for many more years. I've never really cared to drive any previous vehicles that she got, but I do really like her Edge. Sucks she gets another new vehicle before me. LOL! Happy wife, happy life, right?? I'm waiting on the 21/22 Explorer ST, though. Thanks for the feedback so far!

    2019 vs 2020

    Hey All - My wife presently drives a 2017 Edge Sport, which we really like... but we leased it and the residual is about $8k more than what it is worth, putting us at about $10k backwards after tax, title, fees. Needless to say, we are not buying it and are looking into an Edge ST instead. I've spoken to a few dealers, some say you can't lease a 2019, some say you can as long as it's brand new. So, I guess one of my biggest questions is, what's the big difference between the 2019 and 2020? The discounts on a 2019 are substantial, but if there are concerns with the 2019 that were fixed with the 2020, is it worth playing that game? That's kind of like the 2020 Explorer... I wanted to trade my '15 Explorer Sport for an Explorer ST, but homey ain't playing the game with the first model year due to all of the issues at hand. Thanks!!
