    Strange Auto Stop/Start Behavior

    The stop/start itself is a terrible design. I turn this off. But if the wheel won’t turn when the engine is stopped, you’ll have to turn that feature off if you need to make a sharp steer

    Left vs Right turn radius

    Maybe.. I’ve only paid attention to it with passenger unloaded. I need to check with a passenger. Had the perfect opportunity a few days ago with a gentleman over 300lbs riding shotgun.. damn I’ve been doing some vigorous maneuvers that I never had marbles to try with my Tahoe. The handling is...

    Left vs Right turn radius

    My off-road hud is showing wheel turning 28° one way and 30° the other. Also if I’m on a road that’s sloped to one side, I’m getting a 2° on my left roll axis but if I turn around facing the opposite direction on the same spot I’m getting 0° on my roll axis. Can’t tell if it just needs to be...

    Is the Bronco Sport a 4x4?

    AWD is a type of 4x4. There is a common misconception where some people believe 4x4 have to have.. lockers/low range to be considered 4x4. 4x4 means the vehicle is able to send power to 4 out of 4 wheels. this is no different than the suv misconception. “Car enthusiasts” believe in order to get...

    New Bronco Sport "Torture Test" TFL Off-Road Review

    I agree body on frame is not the only type of real off-roader. I disagree will your ultimate definition of what the lowest common denominator is. I believe a true off-road vehicle should be able to drive/preform off-road. Traditional lockers and 4L are contributing factors to accomplishing this...

    Monumental amount of consumer satisfaction with a carbonized gray badlands

    I’ve had my badlands for 2 weeks now. I’ve traveled 1250 miles. 1/3 of that is commuting. The other 800 miles is me finding any excuse to drive somewhere. So far 100% on-road and I don’t care what some reviews say, it’s a great on road driving experience. Looking forward to the off-road driving...

    Bronco Sport vs Jeep Compass Trailhawk -- MotorTrend Comparison Review

    I understand some members comments offend you. When someone starts a discussion with you and you deem it “needless”, why not have a discussion about how it’s needless. This is a discussion forum after all and seems like a good place for it. Instead you ask for “offensive” comments to be “cleaned...

    Bronco Sport vs Jeep Compass Trailhawk -- MotorTrend Comparison Review

    Shame on ford for trying to save money and not being a non profit organization. They should have included a necessary gold plated pull string to start the engine instead of the plastic push start button. Plastic gimmicky circles everywhere. Ford is so cheap🤣

    Bronco Sport vs Jeep Compass Trailhawk -- MotorTrend Comparison Review

    So now knobs are toys. Are you too good for the knobs on the temp control also? Do you feel like a child when you walk through a gimmicky door with a round toyish knob and only use push doors or lever handles. Looks like I have pinpointed the hate for the dial shifter. “Circles are for...

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

    So basically “Dealers will confirm that the rear suspension bolts are secured properly and replace them, if necessary.” for some built in July 22 to Nov. 24. Some were pre production if production began Oct. 26. If it does affect your vehicle, your dealer will tighten the bolts or replace them..
