    Oil change at what mileage / intervals?

    Totally agree as Documented is definitely the key word here. It really depends on the dealer , as far as I'm told. When I purchased a Ford ESP warranty on my 3.5L ecoboost pickup from one of the online authorized sellers, I took it to a Ford dealer to have them inspect and fill out the proper...

    Oil change at what mileage / intervals?

    The 2.0L in my ‘18 Focus ST had a pretty good amount of fuel in the oil due to dilution after 5000 miles. I found (short of a catch can)full synthetic with its better sheer characteristics and a change at no more than 5000m on the dot seems to bode well w/ regards to an oil analysis.

    Oil change at what mileage / intervals?

    If it is like the rest of the newer Ford's with the " Intelligent oil life monitor", it is no way analyzes the oil and basically counts down the mileage. However, when the mileage counts down, it will "count down" at a faster rate based on the amount of idling, towing and Driving habits. If its...

    Car and Driver Tested Review: 2021 Bronco Sport Badlands Earns the Bronco Name

    It's worth noting the numbers the instrumented test C&D did. If you compare those results, the BS BL is as fast as a 2019 Edge ST and Focus ST from 2015. 5.9s 0-60 and 14.5s quarter mile are super respectable.

    Bronco Sport vs Jeep Compass Trailhawk -- MotorTrend Comparison Review

    Not here nor there but interesting I think- My friend is replacing his 2000 Explorer and decided to compare the BS and 2000 Explorer. Despite the Explorers extra 18" of overall length, and 8 inches or so of wheelbase, the BS outmatches it in every interior metric except max cargo with seats...

    Bronco Sport vs Jeep Compass Trailhawk -- MotorTrend Comparison Review

    At one point I was very mildly interested in the renegade and decided to drive one. That 2.4L was one (of quite a few) of the reasons I passed. As everyone knows , 4 cyls typically don't come off as harmonically pleasing and that one basically takes all of that and amplifies it. Besides being a...

    Ettiquette around ordering

    Brought this up w/ the sales manager at the dealer I am dealing with. His opinion was if there are incentives this early.. it is indicitive that they will only get better after these programs expire.

    Manual or manual insert for the B&O sound system?

    Doesn't seem like there's a suppliment included with the owners manual just for the B&o system. It seems like everything you 'need' to know w/ respect to the modem and other features are in the regular owners manual. I do know however, that if you are having an issue re: something to do with...
