Beats my OJ Simpson Bronco

ReviewI had an OJ Simpson 1995 Bronco for a little over 10 years. It was reliable, drank gasoline like a thirsty boozer and rode like a vehicle from hell re lack of comfort. I'm retired, fly fish, pull small boats, go off road as well as drive in town and local trips. Ride is good. The grandkids love to ride in and prefer it over my wife's Lexus. The mileage has been a disappointment with an average of about 16 per tank. I normally beat the estimated mileage, not here. The lack or real off road under vehicle protection is a pain. Apparently, that is due to the Honda lawyers. The vehicle hauls everything we have needed to haul. The lockable trunk in the bed is great. Buy one
Best FeaturesThe ride and the sure footedness of the AWD are superb. Tailgaters not paying attention to their speed on curves soon back off as I seldom hit the brakes. The AWD does a good job on river beds. Next lower range is good. Lockable trunk holds/hides expensive fly rods, reels, lines. and other gear.
Worst FeaturesPaint is worthless on an off road vehicle. Grass and leaves scratch the surface. Lack of real off road under truck protection is a pain. Apparently Honda lawyers are to blame re no aftermarket. Backing up is tough re poor vision. Vehicles need a back up tv system. Doors autolocking stink
