    Great Service @ Crossroads Ford in Fuquay-Varina NC

    Made an appointment and brought my car in for an oil change this morning. My Service Advisor said they were short on Service techs and it might take more than two hours.

    Tow Hook

    I've been reading in this forum and various Facebook pages about the need for Bronco Sport tow hook. It would definitely be necessary if you needed to be towed or, at the very least, pulled out of being stuck. The hook is not included with your vehicle but is definitely something that you should...

    My Bronco Found Its Brethren

    Took my Bronco Sport Big Bend out on the sand on Carolla Beach to find the wild horses that have survived there for 500 years. Aired down the ties to 20 psi. Handled perfectly in the sand and accomplished my objective.

    Lift Gate Stopped Unlocking

    I know this was covered a while back but has anyone come up with a specific solution. My liftgate always unlocked as long as I have the key in my pocket. Then yesterday it stopped working. The window still unlocks but the liftgate does not. Any solutions would be appreciated.

    Glove Box Organizer?

    I've seen several ads for a glove box organizer that fits the full size Bronco. Has anyone seen one that fits the Bronco Sport? I'm not referring to the tray that goes in the console. I have one and it's very useful. I'm asking about an organizer for the glove compartment.

    Tire Pressure

    Is everyone aware that there is a Ford+Alexa app available that gives you all the features of Alexa (including Amazon Music) in your vehicle? I won't try to give all the details here, but if you have Alexa in your home, I would definitely recommend looking it up online.

    First Battle Scar

    After 2400 miles, Grey Man suffered his first battle scar. At first I was really upset but then realized that, when you venture off the beaten path, you sometimes pay the price. He can proudly wear it as a momento of the battle.

    AVS Bug Shield gap?

    I just installed an AVS Bug Shield on my BS. It fit and looks great. I noticed that there is a tiny 1/32 inch space on the passenger side end. Should I be concerned or am I obsessing about nothing?

    Is Bug Deflector a Worthwhile Expenditure

    I've been reading and watching videos about the AVS Aeroskin Bug/Pebble deflector that appears to be easily self installed. Amazon sells it for $94.

    Pebbles In The Tires

    I've been been doing some off roading on gravel roads. There are a lot of pebbles stuck in the treads. This may be a newbie question but is there any benefit to remove them? Amazon actually has a tool specifically for that purpose.
