A handful of recalls have affected the Ford Edge in the past few years, including recalls for the 2021 model for missing bolts on the start/stop accumulator, a malfunctioning rearview camera, and inadequate lubrication in the rear-drive unit. The latter issue also affected the 2021 model and is joined by another one for a misassembled driver's seatbelt. J.D. Power gave the 2020 Ford Edge good ratings with a quality and reliability score of 82; more recent years have not been rated yet.

Ford will cover the Edge with a three-year/36,000-mile basic warranty, a five-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty, corrosion protection for all five of those years regardless of miles covered, and a roadside assistance plan of five years or 60,000 miles.
