Ford Motor Co. has been making great strides on quality measurements from Consumer Reports and J.D. Power and Associates, the two leading arbiters of automotive quality. But CR said that the Dearborn, Mich., automaker stumbled with the redesign of its Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX crossovers, as well as the "MyTouch" electronic systems that are in both vehicles.

CR said that it will not be recommending the vehicles, or the MyTouch system, which is also planned for other Ford vehicles.
