    Well that's it.... We've had it with Ford and this Bronco Sport

    My experience majority of Ford dealers have absolute terrible service even before COVID. Most of them either don't care, are incompetent, or combination of the two. But there are some, not many, that have good service. My father in law had a local Lincoln dealer do warranty work on his...

    Traded my Big Bend for a Badlands

    The 2.0 has that torque that smooth power. Around town barely touch the pedal your off and away up to speed in no time. And if you ever have to pass on the highway not a problem lots of power.

    Well that's it.... We've had it with Ford and this Bronco Sport

    I think its some sports have problems and large numbers of them are issue free. But majority of dealers have lousy service, not all, but most of them. My neighbor has a fleet of Fords he knows of one dealer that has good service in my area. The other dozen or so dealers terrible service...

    Bigger engine for BS

    Its not a common color even back in the late 80s you rarely saw that color. And '88 and '89 only color.

    Recall : Even the new design can crack. Recall expanded.

    I think Badlands is 12-15 percent of sports built and thats how Ford wants it as a niche specialty type vehicle.

    Recall : Even the new design can crack. Recall expanded.

    Yeah I think CAFE regulations is why its a Badlands only option. The lower 3 cyl trim sports are high volume so they help fords CAFE rating a lot. Ford doesn't want to sell a lot of 2.0 sports that was never their plan. Ford might be more liberal with 2.0s in Escapes cause they are jelly...

    Found a way to reduce cabin noise in the Bronco Sport

    I think the ones that are noisy have a build issue. Ford did not engineer them like that. They likely missing a seal or something. Stuffing stuff in gap is masking the real issue. But not likely dealer would fix under lying issue. Mine has giant gap and is very quiet 70+ mph don't have...

    Relocating to Baltimore

    Local news has great coverage of the bridge collapse disaster. And yeah traffic congestion in the area some of the worse in the country. But you can drive to mountains or drive to beach for vacations thats a plus. High crime rates in the city but they are taking real steps to address that...

    Lemon bronco sports have existed since day one. And so have large numbers of well built trouble free sports. To reduce risk test drive and inspect closely before you buy. Read up on common problems. I have always thought its a buyer beware since day one. Don't just wonder into a dealer sign...
