Any 2016 owners have throttle body troubles?

Recommended Posts

I copied this from Gen I's site for a 2015 Edge, I hope he doesn't mind, but it should be here in Gen II's site.  It's from today:

New member...my 2015 Ford Edge has 13,500 miles and has had the throttle body replaced twice.  The first incident occurred around 8500 miles.  My service associate had to fight to have it replaced the first time and kept the car 5 days.  Last weekend, it repeated the stall and the wrench appeared which seemed to make the dealer happy.  Service is telling me that they are having a lot of problems with the 2016 Edges.  He said that some have sat on the lot for repair for 4 weeks due to the backorder of parts.  He said that mine is the only 2015 they have replaced (now twice!)  Upon receiving my keys, I asked the service manager how long I could expect this one to last.  The response was "mechanical things break, it is just how it is."  Well needless to say, I am not feeling safe in my Edge.

Two weeks ago while on vacation, the "wrench'' light went on and I immediately had almost no power. I was able to pull off the road and then turned the engine off. I restarted it, it fired right up and I was lucky (in a way) that I was about a mile from a Ford dealer, so I drove there and they got the car in the shop and traced the problem to a faulty throttle body. They replaced it and everything's been fine since. All under the warranty... thumbsup.gif
