I bought my Bronco when it was two years old and have driven it for 16 years now. Almost zero repairs over its life so far. I love the handling, the power, and comfort. It's been a great vehicle and what I would choose for bad conditions (snow, mud, ice, etc.)
Handling, short turning radius, off-road abilities.
It's a big gas guzzler, but when you need reliable power out the kazoo, there isn't an option. Four wheel ABS would have been nice, but having it on the rear has saved me from a wreck!
