don’t knock a Subaru Outback if you haven’t driven one. My wife has one and it is great.You traded a Bronco for that! Unbelievable
That is the reason I kept my 3-series BMW. I wasn’t sure how reliable the Gen6 Bronco was going to be. But it has done very well and it has become my daily driver, and the BMW just sits in the drivewayIt's really hard to stay with a vehical you cant depend on, especially when it's your daily driver. I'm in the same position. I cannot afford to get stranded. Smart move.
Thankfully my 22 has never let me down, but I don't fully trust it. I think they went too dependent on electrical/computer instead of mechanical solutions, and that's not a Ford strong point, at least not yet. If i didn't have a previous Bronco, I probably would of gotten a 4 runner. I do absolutely love my bronco and am forever grateful it hasn't needed to go back in for work(except the light switch, still need that to get fixed)
The OP bought a Subby so I commented on that purchase.Outbacks are ok. My wife and I are strong Toyota fans. We have a 4Runner with 240K miles and a Tacoma with 200K. No issue what so ever. My Bronco Raptor is in the shop with a torn CV boot at 2500 miles….
Ours seems fine. I have zero issues with it. I'm not sure how the new ones shift, but the 2015 era CVT's had definite , albeit fake, shift points, so I never really think there's any slipping going on. Which seems to be a common complaint.Mark me down as one who had one and hated it.. our ‘22 Subaru was nice at first but holy cow is that CVT hot garbage. My wife quickly– we owned it 5 months - got to the point where she hated driving it so we traded it in (on our ‘22 Wildtrak).
Yeah I did. What's so unbelievable? So in your eyes I just have just stuck with the Bronco and hoped for the best. Is that what your saying?? I didn't even mention what I traded for in MY OP. Didn't feel the need. Someone asked so I answred. Sorry it doesn't get your seal of approval. I'll be sure to check with you on my next purchase.
I didn't post to get validation or approval of any kind. I posted my experience with the Bronco, why I traded it. It's just the best thing to do at this time for me and my family. I could not chance any more issues. Or something worse that might have left me stranded or without a daily.Okay.
Those of us who waited for our Bronco and love our Bronco, find what you did, unbelievable. There are some people who should not own a Bronco. You have obviously distinguished yourself as this type of person.
I owned a Subaru Outback for many years. It was not even in the same universe the Bronco inhabits.
That's cool. You can do what you want. Just don't expect most of us to understand what you did or validate your decision.
You should have kept this to yourself, or shared it on a Subaru forum.
