    Cup Holder Ambient Lighting

    From everything I've seen it's one of the three or four things removed from the 2022 Outer Banks that the 2021s have. My 2021 has them.

    It's not just the Bronco Sport

    I think it's more supply chain issues than anything else.

    To all with a missing engine cover: (1.5L)

    My mechanic left mine off for a test drive. Said as soon as he pulled out, the additional engine noise reminded him it was still sitting on the bench.

    It's not just the Bronco Sport

    Noticed on the 22 Outer Banks I saw the other day that my 2021 has, no ambient light in the cupholders, no temp display on the climate control knobs, no folding rear headrests and of course, no engine cover. Don't know if it's all of them or just a supply issue. I'll keep my 21.

    RECALL on oil separator

    All they do first is inspect it for damage and check the serial number. If it is damaged then it might take longer but the initial inspection is only a few minutes if there's no problem with it.

    RECALL on oil separator

    They will inspect it. The fix is replacing it IF it was damaged during installation. Nothing wrong with the design, just the installation may have damaged some.

    We travel light. Don't carry water when towing. Battery is moved inside so not on tongue. Tongue weight is at 180 lbs. Tows just fine. Have gauge for both engine temp, transmission temp and horsepower. Factory tow package is required as the transmission is the weak point, not the engines and...

    Anyone pulling camper?

    The disadvantage is when traveling it's like a pop up you can't set it up and use it in rest areas or parking lots. We wanted something for just the two of us and the dog with little or no set-up for traveling. The teardrop is perfect. Some of the others listed above are dry weight so you have...

    Anyone pulling camper?

    Wound up with this teardrop last year at 1,850+ Lbs so packing light and towing at max keeping it under 65. Does just fine in the hills but wouldn't tow it in the Rockies. Added a gauge for monitoring engine and tranny temp.
