    Back brakes growling fix

    When I got my first oil change, I asked about this noise and got a runaround explanation that it was normal buildup being knocked off and nothing could be done. So if I go in now with this TSB number, can I expect they might do something about it? My first BS didn’t have this problem, but the...

    Here's my new Hot Pepper Red Bronco Sport Badlands

    I had rapid red for my 2021 Badlands that got totaled five months after I bought it. I sure do miss that color, though I’m OK with the hot pepper red. It’s just a shame they retired rapid red after only one MY.

    Rumor has it there's a TSB out for noisy brakes...

    When I took my 2022 Badlands in for the 10,000 mile service, I mentioned the groaning noise from the brakes and they gave me some explanation about it just being buildup getting knocked off and it’s normal. If that’s true, I could live with it (and ignore the stares of concern from others), but...

    Insurance increase for Bronco Sport

    Well, that's an entirely different thing. I had a very minor incident (just barely over the $1,000 threshold, though I question that since I saw zero damage on the other vehicle) about six years ago, and my rates went up 30% for three years as a result of losing my good driver discount since it...

    Insurance increase for Bronco Sport

    Good point — my BS was totaled for $38,000, plus taxes and fees, because the value had gone up since I bought it. So I was basically able to order a new 2022 without losing very much at all.

    Insurance increase for Bronco Sport

    My BS is almost six months old (officially lasted longer than my wrecked 2021, yay), and I got a policy renewal notice from State Farm with this note about a rate increase: I did the math and it seems to be about a $46 a year increase, so it’s relatively small, but it does intrigue me. So are...

    What did you do TO your Bronco Sport today?

    Oh, I meant the hood deflector goo. The side moldings didn't seem to have the same kind of treatment.

    What did you do TO your Bronco Sport today?

    My brother attached it for me. I wasn't there when he did it, but it sounded pretty easy. It's a little drastic because apparently the goo that you treat the hood with to make it stick melts the paint. So there ain't no turning back once you put it on ...

    What did you do TO your Bronco Sport today?

    Like on top of the spare tire? Is there enough clearance for that?

    Ford Protect ESP (Extended Service Plan) -- $50 Over Dealer Cost

    Companies would not offer these plans unless they were able to make money on them, so overall, consumers are not getting value from it. It's like a casino -- the house is going to win over the long haul, so you're just playing unfavorable odds. However, if the cost is something you can afford...

    Hood shaking at speed - what Mitsubishi did

    My 2021 didn't have the hood shake, but my 2022 sure does. I have to force myself not to look at it or it really bothers me. I was hoping adjusting the bumpers might be the magic fix and then I could try it. I'm considering getting the redline struts -- wonder if that would make a difference. I...

    Review from OFF-ROADEO Moab Bronco Sport 1st Class 5/6/22

    I got an email that they're doing an all-women's Off Roadeo in Texas -- wonder if they'll have bathroom accommodations for that one ;-)

    What did you do TO your Bronco Sport today?

    Finally got the hood deflector and door moldings attached -- originally bought for my 2021 that got totaled in September before I could put on the accessories, now added to my 2022. I really, really like how the door moldings contrast with the hot pepper red color. I dearly miss the rapid red...

    Ford announces some changes to FordPass features

    I have both a Series 2 and a Series 6 and they are GPS only, no cellular (both aluminum cases). The stainless steel and titanium models are only available with the cellular hardware built in, but you can still use them with just GPS without having to have a cellular plan. It'll just use the...

    Are there any improvements on the 22's vs the 21's, or just downgrades?

    I adored my 2021 beyond reason and cried for two weeks straight when an idiot started a four-car freeway crash and totaled mine five months after I got it. I couldn’t find a replacement anywhere in the country, so I ordered a 2022 instead. The thing I actually miss the most between the model...

    Are there any improvements on the 22's vs the 21's, or just downgrades?

    I have the Badlands premium package on my ‘22 and it has all those holes still.

    Review from OFF-ROADEO Moab Bronco Sport 1st Class 5/6/22

    Thanks for the writeup! I finally got my purchase verified by the Off Roadeo folks and now I need to find a weekend I can take off work to book the trip (yes, I'm a weirdo who works weekends). I can't wait to get to do this.

    Are there any improvements on the 22's vs the 21's, or just downgrades?

    I had a '21 and now have a '22, but the only thing I would have noticed without reading the forums is the lack of folding headrests. Now that I KNOW the temperature readings are missing from the dials, it bugs me a lot :p FWIW, I have the button to pop the tailgate on my '22.

    Intentionally locking the keys in the car

    I have a console vault, so I can actually lock up the fob if I wanted to leave it inside. What's the process for doing that so the vehicle doesn't refuse to lock when it senses a key inside?

    New Button in FordPass

    Boom, got the button on the 2022 now. It was only showing on the totaled 2021 before.
