My Bronco Buddy has been more faithful than my ex. I did have the trans rebuilt in Jan,2009 other than that it has not had any other work done in the 302,000 miles I have accumulated. My Bronco runs great still to this day.
The removable back seat has not been in it for so long I can`t remember, I call it my WinniBronco and use it for camping.
I have to agree with the other suggestions of the seat materials and padding, and better mileage.
