Ford Edge owners shouldn’t expect a recall for any cracked 22” alloy wheels after the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) put the kibosh on its investigation.
The investigation was opened in May 2015 after an owner complained their wheel split and sent the car off the road.
“NHTSA determined the Ford Edge wheel failed because a severe impact caused a crack in the wheel that eventually expanded around the wheel. Based on the evidence, investigators saw a rough appearance that showed a rapid stress fracture but no abnormalities or unique features associated with the site of the fracture.”
NHTSA did say it will continue to monitor complaints, so if you’ve had similar issues tell us about it here.
