Took my 1k miles Bronco BadSquatch to the dealership because I heard popping whenever I accelerated and I had a CEL for an O2 sensor. Turns out the fine auto workers in Detroit don't know how to tighten bolts to spec and my driveshaft, axles and a lot of other stuff was loose.

C'mon Ford, stop living up to the expectations people have of you and actually make a good product

BECAUSE the NEW broncos LOOK good AND i WantED OnE. Is it too much to ask for expensive vehicle to be made correctly?
It's just too bad that they are put together so shoddy

I typically don't buy junk even if it looks good...

But hey it's your money.

We have the same car.....
Was I supposed to expect Ford to have loose nuts and bolts? Maybe the next Ford I try to buy I should bring a wrench and just make sure the factory put it together correctly.

Ain't just Ford. The driveshaft of my new 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee FELL OFF at a stop sign after I'd owned it for less than a month. Needless to say I didn't own it much longer after that.

Some are obviously put together much better than others. Was yours built on a Friday night? Not that UAW workers would ever pregame the weekend...

Overall I’m pretty darn happy with mine. It’s not perfect. My Maverick seemed to have better tolerances. Nevertheless, I love the Bronco

I love it too and I'm really happy with it. Just disappointed with the quality to price ratio. But overall i'm excited to have such a cool truck

And that is the rub, awesome looking truck, capable as hell, but it cost a small fortune so the expectations were high. Unfortunately it seems on most new vehicles cost do not equal the quality most people would expect. Having said that, I am very happy with ours and have been enjoying it since day one.

Your Bronco came with the small toolkit in the glovebox right? What you think it’s for?
