Does anyone have an idea how much of a DIY vehicle the Bronco Sport would be?
I mean for simple things like
  1. Oil changes (is there a traditional dipstick/tube/drain plug?? - how easy is it to access the oil filter?),
  2. ATF changes (is there a dipstick/tube/drain plug?),
  3. PTU (drain plug?) and
  4. Rear differential Fluid (drain plug?).

Just curious because i'd like to DIY these things after warranty period and I am NOT a believer in Ford's (or anyone's) "Lifetime" fluid recommendations.
(The PTU fluid and ATF was nasty at 85k miles on my 2010 Escape)

I was easily able to change fluids in the Auto trans, PTU and rear diff in my 2010 Escape (3L v6) with simple drain (well suck/pump-out but easy)/fill procedures, so would be great if I can do the same with the Sport.
