  1. MY22 orders with Moonroof

    Just offering an opinion based on my own personal experience... I love moonroofs/sunroofs and believe that every single vehicle i have owned, including a 1958 Porsche 356 had one. Wait, my 1986 VW Westfalia Syncro had a pop-top but no sunroof. With many cars, like the current generation Mini...
  2. Blackstone Oil Report - Bronco Sport 2.0 L engine and factory oil at 4200 miles

    That was my understanding. My next report will be using different oil as I switched to Mobil 1.
  3. Blackstone Oil Report - Bronco Sport 2.0 L engine and factory oil at 4200 miles

    I was trying to modify the post to make the report visible without having to load a pdf.
  4. Blackstone Oil Report - Bronco Sport 2.0 L engine and factory oil at 4200 miles

    Just wanted to share this Blackstone Oil Report in case anyone is curious. I've never done this with any of my previous cars, so this technical data is new for me. Comments from those with some knowledge/experience is always welcome. Daniel
  5. Cleaning plastic parts

    Would love to hear what you have figured out for the trim. I have so far found it to be difficult to clean and impossible to keep it clean for any length of time. Daniel
  6. CHECK ENGINE LIGHT Always ON

    I had this same light come on during a 2.2k mile July road trip to Colorado from Texas. I had just fueled up and was back up to speed on the freeway. Your Ford Pass App will send a message with the following info... There is also some further info in the owner's manual but it's difficult to...
  7. Oil Change

    I just requested a test sample kit from Black Stone, and am very interested to see how this goes. Anecdotal story from my stinky oil change on Saturday... I always wear gloves, at least since I got tired of having dirty fingers/nails for weeks on end, and managed to stay oil free UNTIL i...
  8. Delay in power delivery

    Not at those particular times. During regular everyday type of driving, I use Normal mode. I only switch into Sport mode when I am driving in heavy traffic and anticipate having to react to lunacy quickly. I find the 2.0 BS to be surprisingly quick even in Normal mode. I haven't experienced...
  9. Oil Change

    I had this same filter on my FE which got its first oil change at 4k miles over the weekend. I was actually surprised at how small this factory fitted filter is along with the standard FL-910-S filter. Is there a better non-Ford part from Amsoil or Mobil1 that fits these 2.0 engines ...
  10. LED bulbs for tail lights

    I went with the Lasfit bulbs all around; brake, back-up and turn signal. They are significantly brighter. Definitely worth it for safety in my opinion. Caveat, I too am on my second set of turn signal bulbs. The passenger side has worked flawlessly since install. The driver side hyper-flashed...
  11. Splash guards and seat covers

    I've been getting my local dealer to price match with Levitown Ford. I pay tax, but no shipping, and they can source parts within just a couple of days, including weekends. This last time I ordered the same neoprene seat cover for the rear and did not tell them i was using points. Just walked...
  12. Delay in power delivery

    I just returned from an unusually hot week at altitude in Boulder Colorado and experienced the same turbo lag for the first (and second time). The first time was during a series of switch-backs on Flagstaff Rd around 7k feet in elevation. As i slowed down to take a very hard right turn going...
  13. Just got this-- Recall #21S03. FRONT LOWER CONTROL ARMS INSPECTION

    My local service manager was nice enough to show me the paperwork from Ford describing the recall and how to visually inspect the front lower control arms without having to drop the vehicle off for the billable .3 hours of labor at the dealer. The correct control arms will have the "AMA"...
  14. Just got this-- Recall #21S03. FRONT LOWER CONTROL ARMS INSPECTION

    Anyone else get this recall or know more about the details ? My VIN listed, a First Edition produced on 12/20/20. "What is the issue ? Your vehicle may have been produced with front suspension modules that may have incorrect front lower control arms." "What is the risk ? Vehicles with...
  15. On-board Toolkit/Travel bag

    FUSES...Great reminder, i completely forgot about those. Justin, I intend to use the Bronco Sport much like Ford advertised it. As transportation to my adventure destination but not necessarily to be the adventure. With that said, i will take it on non maintained roads in south west Texas; Big...
  16. On-board Toolkit/Travel bag

    I am currently putting together a list of tools and accessories that I intend to keep in a convenient carry-case/bag for when i leave the immediate vicinity of home for single day or overnight adventures. So far I am including things like a small bottle-jack, tire plug kit, portable air...
  17. Any broken headlights/lenses yet?

    The headlight square footage is basically huge, and the overall shape of the front end is very upright. So I am also surprised that we haven't seen this issue pop-up yet. I am overdue to take some good photos and now have to do a complete detail after the recent freak snowpocalypse here in...
  18. Am I being played?

    tRex is absolutely right. These vehicles are surprisingly rare at this point. Especially the 2.0 liter models. I live in the DFW metroplex with 6.5 million other people and have not yet seen a single other Bronco Sport of any variety out in the wild. I think Ford is producing these at a very...
  19. Am I being played?

    Kelsea, Unfortunately I am not surprised you are getting the run-around. And I would guess that there are a combination of reasons. From my personal experience with the dealerships I interacted with before purchasing a Bronco Sport FE in Dec., many of the dealership employees don't really...
  20. How are you finding front seat size and comfort?

    After just a few months and only a few hundred miles this is my only worry long term. I am tall, 6'3" with very long legs. The bottom cushion is very short and as Zooke said, it hits me about mid thigh. I have learned from recent experience (mid 40s thank you) I now have trouble sitting long...
