#1 of 16 Love my Edge but sunroof troubles
Apr 24, 2007 (4:38 pm)
I'm having a blast in my new SEL-plus AWD. I was seduced by the vista sunroof, but am finding its motor to be quite slow. Sunroof glass really rattles in open position when going over minimal bumps. Anybody?

I do notice that the motor runs slow unless the engine is running.
Never had one rattle on a test drive. You should go back to the dealer and make sure nothing is loose.

I'm having the same problem regarding the rattle in my 2007 ford edge. It is the clips in the sunroof. I have had my car in twice to the dealer (we bought the car 6 weeks ago) and I have another appointment today for the same problem. They have already replaced the clips twice (broken) but as soon as you open the roof and then close it, the clips break. Our service advisor said it is a design defect.
I got online today to search and see if any others are having the same problem. I have found a few people in other discussions.
#5 of 16 Sunroof Cover Sticking - TSB 07-25-4
Apr 21, 2008 (7:47 am)
I have a 2007 Ford Edge and the sunroof cover is sticking. It will not open sometimes, and when it opens it slams open. This is most common when it is hot out. There is a neoprene filler that is expanding. There was a technical service bulletin issued for 2007 Edge's that were made before 8/1/2007. I am in the process of getting this fixed from the dealer I bought it from. They had to order parts. Then they will have to remove the ditch moldings, replace the tracks, and take out the headliner. It is a major deal and I am pretty upset about this.
Those of you that had the issues with your sunroof may want to have your dealer look at this bulletin.

#8 of 16 Heat from Roof
Feb 24, 2009 (4:53 pm)
Interested in purchasing an Edge with the Vista sunroof, but wondering how the summer temperatures in Oklahoma will heat up the interior of the vehicle. It doesn't seem like the sunroof cover would provide much insulation from the heat. Has anyone had any problems with cooling the vehicle in the summer?

Can't be any worse than Atlanta, and it wasn't a problem last year. The glass is tinted and I don't find it to be any worse in the heat than any other vehicle.
#10 of 16 vista roof shattered
Jun 26, 2010 (5:20 pm)
Driving down a california freeway, good weather, no overpasses, no close traffic and the vista roof shattered. The corners and all around the edges broke.
Ford denied any liability. Had the care about 2 months. Repair estimate is up to $4200 due to the amount of damage to the paint. The roof glass as well as the side panels need to be replaced.
