I'm watching this thread with interest, as my 19 Titanium exhibits the same behavior! You can actually see the tachometer moving back and forth at low speeds.

 

At the very least call customer care and report it.  1-800-392-3673

JohnnyB, Sorry to hear you are yet another Edge owner with transmission issues.  Though I doubt it will help, you did correctly by talking to service and contacting Ford Customer Care. 

 

Here is an update on my issue.  Near the end of September I mailed an extensive document package to William Clay  Ford Jr., Executive Chairman, Jim Hackett, President and CEO, and Dave Filipe, President of Powertrain Engineering. 

 

The documentation included a cover letter explaining the issue with the 2019 Edge.  It also included copies of my three service visits and this forum post from start to mid September.  Several weeks later I received an email from Brad Simmons, Ford's Director of Community Outreach.  Below is his email.

 

Dear Richard,

 

Your letter to Bill Ford has been forwarded to our office for reply.

 

Please know that we do care about the ongoing problem you are having with your 2019 Ford Edge and understand that you are disappointed with the service you have received thus far.

 

I have personally forwarded your letter to the manager of our Customer Service team requesting a review of the matter. A member of the team will be in touch with you as soon as possible.

 

We truly hope this problem can be resolved to your satisfaction and that you will remain a member of our extended Ford family for many years to come. Our warmest good wishes to you.

 

Brad Simmons

Director, Community Outreach | Office of the Executive Chairman | Ford Motor Company

 

After several weeks of no contact by the Customer Service Team I emailed Mr. Simmons and asked for assistance.  As of today I have not received a reply from him nor have I received any contact by Customer Care.  I will also mention that I have not received any contact from Jim Hackett or Dave Filipe.

 

Should you decide to do the same, and I recommend you do, here is the contact information I used.

My dealer's service manager is performing TSB #19-2313 today. I will be interested in seeing if this helps the issue.

That's positive news on TSB 19-2313.  Please let us know the results.

 

I received a call from Ford Dispute Resolution today.  We discussed the problem and I provided all the previous documentation via email the person calling.  Will be  interesting to hear what will happen.

All I can say is my wife is finally satisfied with her ST. She hated it at first because of the transmission but now she's having the time of her life in it. To all those getting the TSB please give it a little time to ''settle in" as it resets the transmission learning tables.

Hi Everyone, I oddly find comfort that I am not the only person with this problem. I have had my new 2019 Edge for just over a month with less than 3k miles on it and have it in the service center for the second time today. EVERYTHING I am reading has happened to me even down to the techs saying it is fine.  I called Ford and opened my own case in addition to the dealer service center. I just received a call from them and they apologized to me sayin that a TSB came out yesterday for my specific transmission in the vehicle regarding this problem. She stated they performed the TSB and it should be ok. I pick it up in a couple of hours and I will get a copy of it to post here for others. Ford clearly has BIG problem on their hands. Hopefully my vehicle will be fixed this time.

Lann, Please post the TSB number you are having done on your vehicle.  TSB 19-2313 is dated 16 October 2019 so it may be different from the one you are referring to.

Lann;  Which transmission do you have and what is the TSB number.     Thanks

This is the TSB that came out yesterday.  (TSB 19-2331) it is for a different problem with the same transmission.  I had it performed on my vehicle today, didn't seem to help the low-speed shifting problem. The service manager did show me where he contacted Ford to let them know they need to look into the problem.

I think I may have discovered an interesting clue related to this problem.  I now have 5000 miles on my 2019 Titanium and it still exhibits the same buck/surge behavior at slow speed that it did on day one.  However, I was recently sitting in a long line of stop and go snail trail traffic so I decided to try out using the adaptive cruise control for it.  It was pretty much working as expected, (your ride is no smoother than how the guy in front of you is starting and stopping), but then I realized I wasn't feeling any buck or surge sensation when starting out from a full stop.

 

So it got me thinking, what are the differences between the accelerator pedal's encoder's signal to the PCM versus the adaptive cruise control's signal to the PCM? Perhaps the latter bypasses the "adaptive learning"  software which appears to be central to this issue? 

 

Anyhow I just now called the service dept where I bought the car and got a service appointment for Jan 6th to get the TSB 19-2331 fix.  Almost 2 months for a software update! It makes me wonder - if they can continuously beam down mountains of navigation data to me, why can't they beam down the software update for my transmission?  A little pop-up on the screen says "You've got mail! Ford wants to reprogram your car. Press okay to continue."

That is interesting Mikey I will try that the next time I get in traffic. Have you called the customer service line (1-800-392-3673) and opened a case? If not you need to do so and have them give you the case number. The service manager at the dealership where I bought mine said that is what will eventually drive Ford to come up with a fix. At this point, Ford just considers this an undesired operating characteristic of the vehicle and no repairs needed at this time. In other words, not enough people have complained about it yet.  Good luck and I hope the TSB 19-2331 does more for yours than it did mine.

Mikey, I tried cruise control at its lowest speed, 20 mph, and I also noticed the smoother drive.  No buck/surge.  Thanks for pointing that out.

 

I received a phone call from a consumer affairs legal analyst with Ford's Dispute Resolution Program.   We talked and I explained the Edge problem.  I emailed all the documents I had physically mailed to Ford.  Several days later I received an email with a service appointment in December.  Ford's field service engineer for my region will be at the dealership to work the problem.  No idea what will be done.  I will update them with what Mikey found on cruise.

Thanks for trying it, I wish more people would.  Yes, I should have pointed out that I also noticed the smooth acceleration when hitting "resume" on CC from a slow speed though, for a large difference between speed at engagement and the set speed, it's acceleration is far more aggressive than I generally drive so it was more difficult to use as a comparison than with the stop and go traffic scenario (given there is a smooth driver in front of you).

Had TSB 19-2331 performed on my Edge.  I am still feeling the buck/surge and can see the tach jumping at around 20mph on initial drive.  Updated Ford via email that the TSB did not fix the problem.

 

Question for others.  The service department stated it will take up to 2,000 miles for adaptive learning to update, and I guess fix the issue.  I have read, I believe here, someone mentioned their service department stated if could take up to 500 miles for adaptive learning.  Is adaptive learning actually involved or is this a standard statement to get the vehicle out of the service department?  How can one service department say 2,000 miles and another 500?

 

Could this actually be an engine issue and not the transmission?

Toby 99;  I had the 19-2331 performed on my vehicle over a month ago. It did not help the shifting issues at all. I was told that it is for another problem with the same transmission ( a harsh engagement clunk when shifting from park to drive or drive to reverse).  I would be very interested in knowing what Fords' field service engineer had to say.  I too tried the cruise control behind another vehicle in traffic and noticed the same thing that you guys have. A much smoother acceleration and shifting.

 

Please keep me informed of any new developments about this situation.
