2011 Ford Edge vibration while accelerating

Recommended Posts

I wanted to share my recent experience with my 2011 Ford Edge AWD Limited to help others and to prevent them from going through what I have. The car had a slight vibration, mostly when turning left under acceleration. It became worse over time. I first noticed the vibration at 35k miles. At 55k miles it became bad enough that I took it to the Dealer to diagnose. The Tech said that the front left side CV axle was not rotating correctly. $150 to diagnose. I had planned to do the repair my self after being quoted $500 for one CV axle replacement. I replaced the front left CV axle that I purchased from Orielly's Auto Parts. The vibration was still there, so I purchased and replace the right side CV axle from the same place. The vibration was still there after replacing both front CV axles. Out of desperation I replaced the right side intermediate axle from the Ford Dealer and changed the oil in the PTU. The vibration was still there. I could not find any bad part that would cause the vibration. I also replaced both front wheel bearings, that was a chore to complete, it still vibrated. After replacing all the parts with no fix, I removed the rear drive shaft thinking the vibration may be coming from the rear. It still vibrated with the rear drive shaft removed. I started to believe that I may have purchased a bad part from Orielly's Auto Parts. I ordered a Ford OEM left CV axle and replaced it. Vibration Gone! I highly recommend buying only Genuine Ford CV axles.

People would do well to heed your warning. Sometimes they get "lucky" with aftermarket axles from say, Detroit Axle, but only worth if you are providing the free labor to go with :)

Thanks for posting Twist. I may go through this eventually with my 2011.
