    Emergency starts!

    These things are great but no not every dead car can be started. When we hook up with cables for a jump sometimes we have to wait a bit while the running vehicle put a little juice in the dead car. I can’t count the times the first attempt was a no go. But the ease of use looks to be a bonus...

    Battery Keeps Being Killed Overnight, Ford Mechs are Stumped??

    Wow, a load test would show the batteries condition, for example: State of charge, Available CCA (Cold Cranking Amps) State of charge after the CCA test, that shows Recovery ability. You can do all that at most any Car Quest or Autozone or Napa or Orileys parts store, to name but a few. Carquest...

    My BS turned 1 today!

    I read everything you posted OP. I’m three weeks away from 18 months of ownership and about 350 miles shy of 20,000 miles. No problems at all. But I don’t take my plastic and Fiber underside into true 4x4 country. I have two rock hit scratches. Both are tiny. I got the touch up pen.

    Sudden Turbo Flutter?

    Never paid much attention after the novelty wore off but I do think the flutter adds to the cool factor. Prolly sounds a little trick if your standing by the road and I flutter by,,

    Wrapped Steering Wheel.

    I’ve had leather steering wheels and in the past put them on a few of my cars. But I felt no need with my Bronco Sport Base. It feels just fine, I don’t understand the complaints. I figured most did it to add a custom touch.

    Delivered with missing parts?

    Over years of ownership the engine cover disperses heat rising directly above the engine. This could, over time mess with the paint. On top, of the hood. It has some sound deadening influence, It keeps idiots from playing with the wires and vacuum lines, The top of my 1.5L with out the cover...

    Cluster F*** (flaw)

    You did test drive one right ? If that was my view I would have chosen another vehicle. Trade it in or sell it outright, I doubt you will loose much. I am 5’ 11” and got my seat pumped up 75% of the way to the upper limit. I have a full view of all my gages.

    It's not much smaller than big Bronco

    Do you remember when A talking head said, “The big Bronco Base Is priced right where the Top of the line Bronco sport sits” I remember that. If I had $75,000 to burn I’d pay off my home and buy a Bronco Sport Base model.

    It's not much smaller than big Bronco

    The full size Bronco Is a big boy toy. Priced like the Jeeps. IMO no comparison to my Bronco Sport that’s just an Escape on Steroids, Really good steroids but still. Don’t get me wrong I really like my BS but I have a 2004 Escape. When I park them close together they too look about the same...
