    2019 Edge Titanium - Great Fuel Mileage!

    I'm only averaging 23 mpg on my '19 Edge Titanium. Must be my size 14 shoes. 👟

    2019 Edge Titanium Lemon??

    Have 1600 miles on my new Edge Titanium. I love everything about it except in for repair 4 times and 3 times now for stalling while driving. First repair required a new APIM module. Second stall out in traffic it restarted on its own after sitting 15 minutes. Dealer could not replicate any issues. Third occurred when I started it up and backed up about 2 ft and it cut off again. Fourth time, unlike previous times, every feature on the car flashed inoperative on the dash meaning one malfunction killed everything. I was unable to get it out of park after it stopped and trying to restart was fruitless. Towed to dealer with the safety features still blinking on dash. They got it restarted in the service lane somehow but when they shut it off to complete the paperwork the headlights never went out on their own. Anyone having complete cut off incidents I'd love to hear if you were ever fixed permanently. I hate the thought of having to rent a vehicle when travelling out of state with two dogs. At some point this car may qualify under the lemon law. UPDATE: I posted this last issue on Saturday. The car was taken in on the previous Thursday. Today, Monday, they are saying the can't replicate the issue. Well it shuts off when I drive it. IN FACT TWICE RECENTLY. What am I supposed to do? I don't want to pick it up only to wait till it quits running again. It' s like an insurance company denying a legitimate claim. 😣 Finally a break in this case Tuesday evening they called and said the car did quit on them as they were backing out of the repair garage. It is now undergoing a more precise exam since they have something to go on. Today (Wednesday is almost a week they've had it this time) Hopefully I'll get it fixed soon. I guess the Lemon Law protection consumers are afforded might be helping them respond. Stay tuned. CASE CLOSED AFTER 7 DAYS On the 7th Day of Christmas my dealer gave to me . . . . . . . . . a fixed car. (Found a short in the fuse panel box. Replaced and running fine.) 😁
  3. This just started on my 2019 Edge with 400 miles. Pulling away and just after shifting out of first gear the engine losses power for 2 seconds then catches back again. Happens only on first trip. Once warmed up it performs as normal. So far I've had the APIM replaced, then the battery cable had a bad connection causing tota engine failure while driving at 40 mph and now this. 😫 Anyone else experience this oddity? HAVE UPDATED THIS POST UNDER . . . . . . '2019 EDGE TITANIUM LEMON ?

    You bet, thnx. It's nice to have him as a contact. It would have been worse if we were on an interstate or several hundred miles from home.

    APIM Issues Forever

    Mr. Bradley, More news from the 'Test Dummy'. After enjoying a full day of driving with the new APIM, low and behold as we were motoring down the road, the car cut off completely and had to maneuvered to a safe landing spot. At the left side of speedometer, every safety feature blinked in secession that they were all not working. Obviously so since the car itself had disabled itself. Called the 1-800 tow service, which by the time all the prompts were completed, our cellphone battery came close to dying. Sweating to death in (feels like 100 0 heat in Atlanta) we finally got the car back to the dealer. Diagnosis: faulty accelerator gas/oxygen ratio unit. Dealer supplied us another loaner and said we can expect to have it back in 2 to 3 days. With mileage now at 300 we have experienced an issue at 100 then 200 and now 300 miles. They say things usually come in 3's so hopefully from here on out it will be clear sailing. Don't worry, if it isn't we'll be communicating again. Signed, Test Dummy

    Appreciate your response. We love the 2019 Titanium Edge after trading our 2019 Acura for a grinding brake issue they couldn't solve. Today the dealer replaced my APIM module. My fingers are crossed that it holds out. Signed, Test Dummy

    Can someone of authority tell me why the APIM module has been a grief for so many of us for so long? When I research the issue they date back many years ago and haven't been corrected yet. What is going on?

    It went out again after the second day. They've ordered a new one. It should arrive in 3 to 4 days. Does anyone have any idea once the tech gets started, how long will the replacement process will take?

    @YT90SC @bbf2530 Just got the car back. Diagnosis showed no code fault. They did a ( reset? resync?) and it is working fine. In fact I now see at least one more visual not seen before on the right info panel to the right of the speedometer. 👍 If it lasts l'll be thrilled. 🤞 Appreciate you all stepping in and helping. 👏

    2019 Edge - Screen Issues

    @bbf2530 Took the car back to the dealer. Service writer said he's very familiar with my issue. The computer chip running my Nav System is bad but has to be ordered. He did say they will try and resync it but he doubted that would work. He said the chip could take as long as 3 to 4 days to arrive. This sounds like BS that it's that hard to get one. When asked if they are aware of the issue why don't they stock it. He said . . . well it's specific to the Edge Titanium and has to be made by a third party vendor. More BS in my opinion but what can you do but wait..

    Thank you very much. What first started as the backup camera staying on, now a couple more issues cropped up. Will try your suggeetioss.
  15. Sometimes the backup camera stays on in 'drive'; at times the screen just goes solid blue; at times when turning off the car and exiting, the screen stays on. Yikes!
