2008 Ford Edge – transmission fluid leak

Dear Doctor: I have a 2008 Ford Edge with only 29,000 miles. A few weeks ago I noticed a transmission fluid leak on my driveway. I also had a problem with driver window not functioning properly. I took the car to ford service and needed to replace transmission cooler assemble, passenger side axial seal, window regulator and motor at an out of pocket expense of over $900. Why am I seeing so many issues with a low mileage car? Tom

Dear Tom: Your vehicle is more than three years old and does have very low mileage on it. Sometimes vehicles that aren’t run regularly and are parked outside in the elements will deteriorate at a much faster rate. On average the Edge has a good track record.
