    I gotta be honest after 6mo and over 5,000mi I still love my little bronco.

    It’s just smartly designed, attractive and does everything I need. I also see some of the more insecure threads in here but I’m typing this from my garage chilling in my car and just admiring it. It has its faults sure, but doesn’t everything? For what I needed and wanted this just fit the bill...

    App measured 0-60 times?

    I did it today just for the fun of it. Stretch of road was slightly uphill, I rolled on the gas, turn at the end, 95 degrees out…how many more excuses can I find….still managed a decent time. And I know it’s not a race car still fun to try it out though.

    2022 BroncoSport vs 2021 Jeep Compass Limited: My Shootout and Comparison

    So I'm back in Colorado and coincidentally the rental car agency gave me a 2021 Jeep Compass Limited. Pleasant little upgrade, better than the car I thought I was going to get and it gives me a nice chance to review a Bronco Rival. Verdict: I'll start with the end and say the winner of this...

    My 4,958.4mi update of '22 Badlands w/ Premium Package

    So quick update and review. I ordered the car late November, got it in March and quickly, after 500mi had it in some dirt. After that its been your average mall crawler grocery getter and dog car. I'll be going up to Montana in a month so hopefully I'll be able to use it some more up there but...

    Will the BroncoSport ever have subscription services?

    As some may know BMW is making news for all the wrong reasons this week, notably because of their monthly subscription services to activate features on their cars that were already built into the cars but the car owner must purchase via monthly subscription to be unlock and use them. Features...

    Do you use autostart?

    I'm considering it. AAA estimate it can save between 3%-7% on gas, which means, according to my crappy math, that using it would extend a tank of gas like what 20 miles maybe and thats roughly a gallon of gas in my car and thats like what $7? Looks like Edmunds puts that number closer to 10%...

    How much could you increase swing arm and underbody clearance?

    I was thinking, the limiting factor with the Badlands, the one thing I’d really change, is how much clearance it has. With mods, like tires and wheels, how much could you increase it? For me this is a long term project I might consider because I simply don’t have the cash right now, that said...

    Big thump when rolling a stop sign with autohold on.

    I was just about back to my place and rolling through the neighborhood when, after doing a notorious California roll I guess, I heard and felt this massive thump by the rear diff. It was almost as if autohold was trying to engage but wasn’t allowed to by the forward movement of the car. It...

    Two Month, 2500 Mile Badlands Review as Everything Vehicle (Daily, Fishing, Dog)

    Background: I'm in my mid 30s and my previous cars were a stock standard Jeep Wrangler in the early 2000s. After that I drove a 1999 Silverado 1500 LT till it fell apart then after that a Volvo V70. I also frequently drive my dads Audi SQ5. After I sold the V70 when leaving Minnesota and moving...

    BroncoSports with a roof basket or other roof accessory, what’s your mpg?

    I have about 1,700mi on the car now and have a roof basket and I’m not getting the mpg I thought I would, not even close. Im getting like 18mpg in the city.

    What’s your favorite thing about your BroncoSport?

    I drove mine nearly 400mi one way to go on a fishing trip and not only was it great on the highway, when I got in the trails it crushed those too. I also like the baby rover looks of it as well the handling and controls. I maintain my criticisms of the ordering process, that said, the car is...

    How much of a difference does Eco mode make?

    Obviously gas is expensive so using eco mode makes sense, but how much of a difference does it make? I've been poking around reading about it and haven't really found any good estimations. My current understanding is that it is engine mapping and reduces throttle, is that it? Does it make an...

    Naturally, the car arrived today…

    Built on 2/8 and the dealer still doesn’t know when the car will be here. Original delivery date 3/2-3/8. Now it’s looking like the 14th at the earli….arrived 3/9, today…of course

    Built to arrived, how long did it take?

    Seems like a lot of people understandably are excited when they get the built notification. Its kinda like congrats, your car didn't get held up in production and will soon be on its way. As much as we all hope they'd get delivered as quickly as possible, thats simply not the case. When your...

    Is there a way to track after the order has been shipped?

    My car is somewhere between Hermosillo and San Diego right about now and I’m just wondering if there’s a way to track it or if I’ll be stuck waiting for the dealer to notify me it’s there once they call.

    Any San Diego BS Owners?

    My Badlands went into production today and I'm getting pretty excited about it. Hopefully the transit from Hermosillo doesn't take too long. I'm hoping it'll be here in two weeks but maybe thats naive.

    Is 360+ worth the upgrade?

    I'm interested in the stop and go feature, which I guess I'd have to get the 360+ to get it. Sounds interesting enough, but how does it perform in the real world?

    Should I upgrade the bashguard on the Badlands?

    How good is the bashguard? I'm thinking about upgrading it because apparently the one on the F150 isn't as good as it could be so I'm thinking that might be the case with the BS BL. So is it worth an upgrade or is the stock one fine and will protect the underbelly of the car?
