    Big bend tire sizes -- what AT tires won’t rub??

    Makes sense. I'm also worried about odometer readings too over time. If you hear of how of anyone recalibrating, be sure to tag me! haha

    Big bend tire sizes -- what AT tires won’t rub??

    @BamaBronco any idea on this? I’ve asked around to no avail. You are the authority on tires now 😉

    Big bend tire sizes -- what AT tires won’t rub??

    I had the same concern, but @BamaBronco posted a great write up of his experience with 245s. https://www.broncosportforum.com/forum/threads/bronco-sport-off-road-driving-impressions.1583/#post-32839

    Speedometer Calibration With Larger / Bigger Tires?

    I've seen this tossed around before on the boards, but haven't actually seen if anyone has had their speedometer re-calibrated after getting some bigger shoes. If you've done it, would you mind explaining how that process went for you? Service dept out here closed on Sunday, so I'm hoping one...

    Not one but TWO rear-facing car seats? Yep, it’ll work.

    Sorry to hear that! Out of curiosity, what do two 6’2” people + car seats roll in? Or still not clear?

    Not one but TWO rear-facing car seats? Yep, it’ll work.

    For sure going to be different for each person. I’m 5’10” and the way I sit while driving leaves a good amount of room behind me.

    Bring your car seats to snap in there. For the toddler size, we found our au pair (5’2”) could sit in the middle and get in and out. The head space really helps maneuver. For infant carriers, it’s a bit tighter but she could still sit in the middle.

    I’m 5’10” and my wife is 5’3” Two car seats in, it’s been just fine. Lots of room to maneuver. I mean it’s no Expedition or mini van, but it has worked for our family.

    Not one but TWO rear-facing car seats? Yep, it’ll work.

    Just got my BB+BB 36 hours ago, and I LOVE IT. There is much I could say about the comfort, how smooth it rides, the unexpected power you get in Sport, etc. But I know what everyone’s really asking is what I was asking when I got to the dealership...will it fit two car seats? Answer: yep. We...

    Have you driven with the rear glass open?

    I’m also in the cancer business - driving with your rear window open is not any more of an elevated cancer risk than going for a normal stroll in a normal urban area with a moderarte air quality index. That’s to say - pretty much negligible and you shouldn’t live in fear. If open windows scare...

    Build to Deliver - Timeframe

    I ordered in July, on like day 2 of reservations. The 28th I think it was.

    Bronco Sport Wildtrak seen for first time in Ford Argentina commercial

    The article was from July, so this info on trims was sort of hiding in plain sight. That said, July was so early on it could be that one or two trims may come with the 1.5. I’ll do a little more looking.

    Bronco Sport Wildtrak seen for first time in Ford Argentina commercial

    Did some digging - according to this article (from July 2020), the South American market will get the three trims of “Wildtrak” “Black Diamond” and “Big Bend.”

    Winter Car Washing Tips?

    Depends on how thorough you can be while freezing your butt off I guess! I'd take it in to get a more thorough job. There's always summer if you want to show it off in your driveway!

    Ford Pass Points work

    It was an easy experience for me as well. A couple notes for those wondering... 1) You have to call and order through your dealer; for whatever reason you can't do it online. 2) If your dealer is telling you that you can't use points for accessories (racks, carriers, etc) they are wrong. Call...

    87 vs 91 Octane?

    I went with 91. I will probably do that until I hit 1500 miles. Word is that's around the time it takes to "break in" the engine.

    Thule HD Crossbar Roof Rack System installed

    Nope. Must be that dealer’s policy. I ordered mine using my points and had my rails within the week.

    Thule HD Crossbar Roof Rack System installed

    I had the same question - you have to call. They can look you up in their system and apply your points to the sale price. Easy process, just annoying you can't do it online.

    Bronco Sport Off-Road Driving Impressions

    This is awesome. If you made this its own thread, you'd make a lot of BB owners considering 245/16R17 tires very happy. Thanks for the review. Looks like no rubbing issues with the 245s, which locks me into my decision to get 245s. Thanks!!
