Isn’t there a certain process you have to follow in order to not get codes when you remove doors? Otherwise it can cause gremlins.
I'm not sure. People say buckle all the seat belts but it's just random when it happens for me

Info in signature. Only issue was a funky noise one time as I shut off the ignition & stepped out, but it was an isolated incident - have never heard the noise again. Have made road trips to Tennessee and Michigan from Maryland, just under 9,000 miles. Couldn't be happier!

I had a 1/18/22 blend date.

I wouldn't call it perfect, but don't have any issues that I can really take to Ford either.

I think most new cars will have a paint blemish or two, but I'd say my Bronco is just rough around the edges still. The biggest thing I notice is the seams between all the body panels are not all installed straight. There are some that are pinched together and some that just are not square. And like many others I have a door that the bottom corner has a contact point that it shouldn't.

May 2022 build

Only problem so far was a trim piece that covers side air bag on pillar between windshield and door on passenger side wouldn't stay in. Dealer ordered a replacement, took about 30 days to arrive. All good now.

7/22/21 build, sat on dirt mountain until Oct. Almost 28,000km now, only issue is the passenger door window hangs up on the top seal a little when you open the door. Not really bothered by it though.

7k miles in and the only issue I've had is the wireless Android auto screwing up and freezing a couple of times...

I don't know if I'm luck or the norm but I received my Bronco in perfect condition.
- The Hardtop wasn't faded or honeycombed
- Bought a factory softtop that doesn't squeak
- Paint is even
- Engine runs great at nearly $10k miles

I see people posting online all the time about issues with their Bronco (some major but most minor) and I wonder how many people have had zero issues?

P.s. Idk if this counts, if so I'll delete this post. I do have codes thrown when the doors are off. Ford said it's normal and either they go away after a few seconds or I just hit "ok" a few times and the Bronco runs normal. (Literally like 5 seconds).
This is the major problem with online forums like this. It is the statistically few people that post problems but there aren't the majority of people coming on saying what a great experience and lack of problems there are. Confirmation bias then ensues and now a relatively small issue appears to be large. For every problem there are probably hundreds or thousands of vehicles that are just fine and we'll never hear those shining success stories.

Thanks for this post........greatly appreciated.
