You definitely need to get that into the Dealership for review. I need to try and shift mine Into the higher gears as well, just to understand how it works. I will say, my last car did this thing as well, but these tranny’s are built with some intelligence so you don’t shift into 2nd at 80mph and whatnot. It also will not let you upshift into higher gears if your speed and rpm’s are at the right level. You may not be going fast enough. But, I do trust your judgement given your posts thus far, that you do know a bit about your vehicles. I hope it isn’t a problem for you, that’s one dope FE.
All is good

Two things for me. First, does anyone else have an issue with their ears popping with the window slightly down on the highway or anything over 50mph? My ears pop like crazy and I get a headache even cruising on highway at sea level.
Second, does anyone else hear their car making clicking noise every 10 minutes or so even 20, 30, or 40 minutes after the car has been turned off and locked?
I can hear it in the garage and it sounds like a relay keeps clicking.
Ya. I’ve noticed the ear thing you mentioned. I’ve found it happens most when only one window is down and that rolling down another window fixes it. I’ve been meaning to research if the window deflector add-ons fix this.

Minor complaints:

1) The notification messages for 'routine' actions stay on the display for too long. For example, after switching off auto-start you get a message. This means I can't turn off auto-start and then quickly switch GOAT modes because the display is 'occupied.' I can already see auto-start is off based on the button below the touchscreen!

2) The snaps for the rear seat covers (Big Bend and above trims) aren't well-aligned. I don't have a rubber mallet so it's been a **** trying to get the final snap in. Next time I'm at the dealer I'll have them take a look.

3) The glove compartment latch is awkward when opening from the driver's seat -- I feel like I'm going to break it off at any moment. Same goes for the hood-release latch.

This issue is specifically mentioned in the owners manual that came with my BS. The recommended solution is to crack the other window. I thought it was an odd thing to address in the manual but Ford obviously is aware.

Rain guards help tremendously

What is all that clicking? There’s relays going off like crazy. I like to take a little cat nap at lunch time and every time someone drives or walks by it wakes me up! It seems to affect the brake pedal, when it’s clicking the pedal is very stiff. Hoping it will get sorted out with an OTA software update.

Exactly! What does it think it’s doing?

I got my Outer Banks Christmas Eve. Have about 3,000 miles on it. Love the car, but have a couple of concerns, more than complaints. The two "problems" I have are 1- the power. Pick up is really poor unless you floor it. It's better in Sport mode, for sure, so I tend to use that a lot. 2 - the transmission seems funky sometimes. When coming to a stop, just before stopping, the transmission seems to stutter/hesitate/something hard to explain. It has something to do with the downshifting and stopping at the same time I think. Not a big deal, but sometimes bothersome. Oh yes... the auto off... at least with my BMW I could turn it off completely. I just don't get this whole concept. Savings in gas and money is minuscule and we shouldn't be forced to have this. I get lots of people making comments in parking lots, which is always fun. "Is that the new BRONCO?" I say no, it's the new Volkswagen. :)

I think the seats and headrests suck compared to my Lexus. I just cannot get comfy on a long or short drive.

Non major issues is the amount of dirt and shit that get stuck around the rear 3 windows and the amount of mud we somehow get on the panel behind the front two tires.

The new Bronco is nice but some things were missed in the delivered vehicle.
1. The visors are so large you have to raise them up when you get within 50 yards to see a traffic light.
2. The remote has to be within a foot of the hatch before it unlocks.
3. And really....no mats for the rear.
This things should all of been figured out in testing!

You see, all you people are guinea pigs for the first prototype sold to the public. You tell ford what's wrong with real world testing and in 2 or 3 years they correct them and you trade in for the better new one. The dealer makes money twice. Paint chips, no problem next year we'll use the good paint. How about a 2 speed transfer case and a bigger motor, yep it's down the road. It's what ford does, little by little to keep you buying new. People that buy new cars continue to buy new cars.

The window noise occurs with all cars unless you install wind deflectors. Nothing to see here.
