It seems that we only get to see the negatives with our Broncos. How many of you guys and gals haven't had a issue with your Bronco? I'm not counting the popping noise in the hardtop since we all no the fixes.

I've been in mine since June of 2022 and I've had no problems.

None here, other than not getting to drive it enough!

I have a few minor problems, but - so what?

No mechanical problems. I wish they’d fix the dumpster fire they call Sync.

I had to have a fuel/air ratio sensor replaced at one month of having it. Just under 17,000 miles now and 0 issues. But, I have done some stupid things that involve the soft top.
I'm still so freaking happy with this beast. And those, such as FG as @3Dogs mentioned, that have to find everything little thing....nothing will ever be made that is 100% perfect for everyone.

I was thinking it was me! Everything I try something I get error that I have to set it up on my phone. Then sometimes it works. Maybe it's not me.

I documented about a dozen serious bugs. Ford’s engineering response was excellent. I’m waiting for the follow through. Not sure what their cycle looks like.

I'll interpret that the purpose of this thread is for positive comments. 8 months, and 18K miles so far. No mechanical issues. I'm pleased with my Bronco.

That was my interpretation as well, but people being people will always take the opportunity to complain. . .

Happy to hear others are not having issues as well..I think for the large majority, there aren't issues...you'll always hear more from those that aren't happy or can never be satisfied, much more than those without issues.

New vehicles always have small issues. This is why factory warranties exist. I think people tend to overhype issues on forums because it’s a place to complain. Obviously that’s their right, I just choose to find the glass being half full instead of focusing on everything negative. Can’t change human nature tho.

Can you state what type of offroad driving you do or have done? List the trails by difficulty, 1 - 10. 1 is an easy road, 10 is a rock crawler.

Messed around my parents farm, which is just hilly for the most part, and taken it on the beaches of OBX a bunch. I don’t do rock crawling, mostly because I don’t have a place to do it in northern VA. Plan to hit some trails near WV this summer

I'm in Ohio and there isn't much opportunity without driving about 3 hours one way. However, I have access to 250 acres of private property where I hunt with the land owner and friends. It's dirt trails in hardwood forest with rolling hills. Some places I would rate a 4 out of 10. I run it now and then to keep familiar with the 4x4 system that the Sasquatch package provides. A few tight turns with complex angles where the trail turn assist is useable. A steep descent where I can play with the one pedal driving, some mud holes for the lockers, and trail control can be used throughout most of the property.
Otherwise, I did Offroadeo New Hampshire. Most of that course is 5-7. One section of rock crawling is an 8. The Broncos at Offroadeo get used hard. Speaking with the instructor, whom I judged to be candid, reported no major mechanical issues with any of their Broncos. None of the broken tie rods, none of the broken steering racks that your see so much about on the youtubes. No engine or drivetrain issues.
FWIW, I've owned 4x4's since the early 80's. I wouldn't claim to be an expert, but I'm not a novice. I'm way past the ego stroking stage of testing the limits of a $45,000.00 vehicle. I'm a trail driver, and explorer that wants some extra capability to get from point A to point B, and back.
Drive it like you are making payments, and I think it will hold up just fine. Drive it for likes on youtube and you are going to break stuff.

My Bronco is far and away the most fun vehicle I have ever owned. Ford hit it out of the park.

I was out wheeling with a local Jeep group today and I impressed them at each and every obstacle. I started the day with many of the Jeep owners thinking they needed to spot me through every difficult spot. It didn’t take long for them to start talking about how well the Broncos were handling themselves, and at the end of the day they thanked me for spotting them through the difficult spots.

We had a muddy good time.

I'm having as much fun in my '22 as I have in my '72! They are both a barrel of fun! No problems at all with the '22. It is fun on the pavement, on the farm, on trails. I am so happy with it! Ford did a great job in designing and producing the Bronco. It is just a hoot to drive! Several of my friends are planning a trip to Silverton, Ouray, Leadville, trails in Colorado this summer. Can't wait to go.

And I got this message from the Admin of the Jeep group this morning. I’m going to spend the entire day with a smug smile on my face.

I noticed an oil leak from a bolt for what I think is the timing chain cover on my 2.3L. It was right in front where the belt is, slow leak, unnoticeable loss. Went to the same Ford dealer twice where I bought it from, various issues led to not being able to get it fixed.

fast forward about a year later when I returned from my deployment, I looked on Focus/Mustang forums, apparently this is common for Ford to not use a lot of sealant there. Went ahead and bought some oil resistant RTV sealant for the bolt, no signs of oil since (been about 500 miles).
