Good manDealer called me to come in and put my order in ,first day res 2020. I go in with gf and we are talking and somehow I put 2.7 on the order form ,as we left gf says oh good now I can drive it too.
Sometime aroun 2:30 am I wake in a cold sweat and I call dealer at 7 am cancel the 2.7 give me the stick ! Whew that was close.
It shouldn't. When either 100% depressed or engaged, there is no friction on the clutch plates. Keeping the clutch depressed does put stress on the throw out bearing, but that's what they are designed for.Doing that will fry your clutch sooner
I got my MT Bronco yesterday. I'm 62 and have had my share of manuals, but nothing new for a while. I'm so glad I got the stick. I love the Bronco's tight gear box. It's so much fun to drive. I had read about your #2 but noticed it iim action for the first time at a hilltop red light. It's pretty cool.Maybe I'm just oldschool but this manual transmission set up is rad.
3 Reasons, amongst others I won't mention to save time + bonus.
1. I love how if I forget to turn off the ebrake, it automatically turns itself off when I begin moving forward or reverse. Just get in and go. This is an awesome feature in a MT.
2. Happened 2 weeks ago. If you are on an incline, normally when you press the clutch in the vehicle will roll backwards. Not in bronco. Press the clutch on a hill and its doesn't budge like you have the brakes on. After about 5 seconds with clutch pressed though the vehicle will start to roll bc the clutch brake will disengage. This is an awesome feature in a MT.
3. Just happened today. My first bronco engine stall pulling in my driveway. Happens even to the best of us haha. Bit not 9ften. Anyway Im glad it happened because when I went to manually restart the engine (press clutch and press start button) the bronco decided to RE-START ITSELF ON ITS OWN when I pressed the clutch!!! This kicks ass.
I want to teach my someday teen driver how to drive on a manual trans but was a bit skeptical in bronco. Not anymore. Between these features and MyKey...should be a breeze. Plus its a big safe tank
Bonus. Might sound stupid but somebody pulled in front of me and I was coming in hot. The pre-collision warning system then popped on (set to highest sensitivity in nav screen). It made a unique noise and warning light came on dash. It works even with 3 inch lift, 37s and steel bumper. Good. Question though. Will the pre-collision system auto brake for you if you dont react in time or is it just a visual/audible collision warning system??
OK I understand the auto stop eliminator. I haven't owned a MT in a long time, but the MT is one of the reasons I want the Bronco. The MT Bronco will be my daily driver, 15 minute commute, mostly rural/suburban roads. Can you explain, in layman's terms, why I would want/need the sprint booster?I added the auto stop eliminator and sprint booster to help improve my driving experience and more security too (digital pedal lock). I suggest getting both products...
It makes the vehicle safer and much more enjoyable to drive (almost like the old days). It almost eliminates throttle lag which has been a pain on all cars since every vehicle switched to electronic throttle body's back in 2005. It also helps sustain revs in between shifts, works with auto or manual trans (see switch on controller) and I've had it in all my cars since I began using them in 2017. Every car I buy its the first mod I do. You can turn it off while installed if you dont want to use it, but I doubt that will ever happen unless you want to feel the difference. It doesn't void warranty, add power or re-program the vehicle in any way. It has valet mode and pedal lock mode too. You will likely never use the valet mode as its more for high power sports cars, but the pedal lock is awesome extra protection against theft. Its so good I will give you my keys with it armed and 30 minutes to figure out how to get it moving again...wont happen. The booster really excels on 4cyl turbo cars along with 6cyl. It also has some other features, one I like I like it so much...I sell them WHOLESALE. So dont ask. But their website if you want one is below where you can find more info. The version 3 model came out a few years ago but these units have been available since 2007 with zero issues sold globally. Best mod to my bronco by far. Takes 30 min to install, half the time just waiting for the CAN b us system to turn off AND easy to uninstall just repeat the install process in reverse.

Taught both my kids how to drive a stick. Both their first cars were stick. I tease my daughter because she has zero automatic functions in her car. I told her nothing's free, if you want auto you have to work for it. I am now in the position to be able to teach my step-son how to drive one, can't wait to get my Bronco.ALMOST stall proof ..... if you have the discipline, pull your foot completely off the gas, slowly release the clutch, the motor will rev slightly and the truck will launch as you complete the motion.
Now try it a bit quicker, it revs more ...
I figured it wouldbe great to teach HoosierDaughter ... told her it's damn near stall proof, you can't kill it.
She stalled it about 20 times before I made her get out, LOL.
Next time, maybe .... but she will learn a manual if it's the last thing ..... lol
