Gibbs Garage posted a topic in Brakes, Chassis & Suspension2017 Platinum Edge 51K miles. No accidents registered on the car. There is significant tire wear on inner shoulder of all tires. After new tires have been installed, I have been working with the local dealer to correct the problem as I do not have a $$$ Hunter alignment set up. We found that the toe was off slightly on both front (current is 0.20 frt/0.10 rear). Rear chamber is at maximum allowed on the drivers front and rear (-0.7 front / -1.2 rear) the passenger side front is okay but the passenger side rear is at maximum (-0.6 frt/-1.1 rear) After the second try on the alignment machine they let me know that there is no further positive adjustment on either front struts or rear chamber eccentrics. Has anyone faced this issue? If so. how was it corrected.? Also, just to make sure I am working with the correct alignment specs... can anyone provide alignment specs for a 2017 Edge? I can provide before and after alignment readings if needed. Thanks!
Not sure if I'm in the right forum but here goes nothing......I have a 2011 Ford Edge AWD SE that only came with 20k miles during 3 years owndership-at time of purchase drivers front tire was down to the wear bars. They replaced all 4 tires with yokohama directional tires (jerks). I have put about 30k miles on the car since buying and within the first 5k miles I noticed SIGNIFICANT wearing of the front tires. Went in for oil change and they did not rotate my tires so of course they got worse....after 10k they were in rough shape with 'cupping' and more noticeable wear. Tires were rotated at this time. Also had tie rods replaced. They did not see any other noticeable front end issues. After 15k miles the front tires were now even with the rear (which were previously the front). Front end alignment done and was horribly off (BAD). I live on a smooth dirt road and I am not a crazy driver. I treat my car very well and get all routine maintenance done. I continue to have noticeable front end tire wear and have been to 2 different ford dealers that cannot find a front end problem other than tie rods that have been fixed and I get routine alignments. Now my tires after 30k miles have so much wear on them I have a leak in one that requires inflation every 48 hours, (I KNOW, RIGHT?!) Is anyone else having these issues? I have also called corporate with these issues with no headway. I'm losing my mind and a lot of money with replacing tires after 30k.
