  1. Bronco Sport recall: Rear suspension may not be fully secured to subframe (1,666 vehicles affected)

    This process does not recognize my VIN#. Which was also an issue with the bank servicing the loan.
  2. Big Bend Snow Fail

    I think you are absolutely correct that the tires are the key to success in those weather circumstances. I have been navigating some of the worst road conditions I have ever experienced here in Texas this past week. I grew up in Maine and moved to Texas at age 27, having spent my early years...
  3. If your second choice color was available now at a dealership would you go for it?

    As a qualifier, I am very particular. I would. And I did. Wanted a full sized Ford Bronco Badlands 4 door in A51. Decided i would "settle" for a Bronco Sport Badlands w/Badlands package in Cactus Grey. Compromised for a Bronco Sport First Edition, my 3rd choice, in Area 51, my second color...
  4. Oil change at what mileage / intervals?

    Do we have any documented examples of how Ford feels about the oil catch can idea regarding warranty issues ?
  5. Bronco Sport recall: Rear suspension may not be fully secured to subframe (1,666 vehicles affected)

    The Ford website is a spinning blue circle of infinity for me in the recall search option this morning. Are we relying on the USPS to deliver the confirmation on affected vehicles via paper mail ? If only in 2021 there was another option... It would be great if Ford "pushed" this information to...
  6. Area 51 Badlands with BFG KO2 245/65/17 tires on stock wheels

    Does that BL have the optional silver roof ?! Looks surprisingly good. I may be strange but i wish my Area 51 FE had the regular body colored roof of the Base and Big Bend. Daniel
  7. Screen Protector for Touchscreen

    Has anyone found a product that will work for the slightly odd size of the touch screen in the Bronco Sport ? Amazon has a few versions that they spec as 6.88" x 4.13" and compatible with multiple Fords. And another couple that they list specifically for the Bronco Sport, but no reviews or real...
  8. B&O Sound System Review?

    I am still in the very new stages of experiencing my First Edition, having only put 220 mile on it thus far and not even removing the protective film on the touch screen... but here's my 2 cents. The upgraded B/O sounds surprisingly good via Siruis XM and streaming TIDAL from my LG V35 phone...
  9. Paint film, windshield film and Ceramic Coating

    I am currently having some XPEL film work done on my First Edition by a well known shop in Dallas that typically works on very expensive cars. An Audi RS Q8 was just finishing up with a 100% XPEL when I dropped mine off last week. I was told that typical SUV price is around 6k. The Sport has...
  10. What’s everyone thinking Powertrain?

    I knew i would have to correct myself. I did own the 2012 4 door Jeep JKU with the new, at the time, 6 cylinder. That was a huge improvement over the previous engines for long distance driving but it was still a Jeep.
  11. What’s everyone thinking Powertrain?

    Have a very new Bronco Sport FE with the 2.0 and although i have barely driven it since picking it up on Christmas Eve it's certainly no slouch in the acceleration department. This is my first SUV ever and my usual car suspects are the German kind; Audi, BMW, Mini etc., so i genuinely wasn't...
  12. FIRST EDITION Thread

    MDCDOC, I stumbled into a FE in Area 51 recently after the person that ordered it elected not to purchase and have to agree on the Navy Pier interior. The color/leather is not something I could critique Ford on. Don't get me wrong, I wish the seats were 15% larger with a deeper bottom cushion...
  13. Why Sport vs Base model full-size Bronco?

    Well, just to offer an opinion from a new Bronco Sport FE owner. I too am on the ever lengthening order/reservation/wish(myth?)-list for the Bronco (full-size). With-out the obvious elephant in the room for 2020, the original timeline for the Bronco was perfect for me and coincided with the...
  14. I reserved a full size Bronco but I want to jump ship for a Bronco Sport Badlands. Where can I buy now?

    Del, I experienced a similar scenario to what you described with the Bronco Sport Badlands' actual availability at dealerships. Dealers post multiple ads on various car sales websites but they either don't have them yet or can't sell them yet. Like the other 200k rabid fans, i too have a...
