Lawyers have opened an investigation into Ford Edge and Flex vehicles over defects with the vehicle’s Power Transfer Units



Hundreds of consumers have complained of Power Transfer Unit (PTU) fluid leaks that often result in the premature failure of the PTU and necessitate a costly replacement.

On All-wheel drive (AWD) vehicles, the PTU is responsible for transferring power from the output shaft of the transmission to the front wheels and also to the rear drive shaft. The PTU units contain a modest amount of fluid which is subject to overheating and degrading the valve seals.

If you have a Ford Flex or Edge and experienced a problem with the PTU on that vehicle we would like to hear from you. You may contact us privately using the contact attorney privately box below and/or share your story publicly using the submit button.
