I regret ever selling it, it had 300,000 miles on it and still going strong. I had the compression checked on it, Told it was still like the day I drove it off the lot. The only major mechanical issues I had was the transmission, I out in three. But it was worth it to me. Loved that truck and I REGRET selling it.
I bought the bronco with 150k on it,so I knew there would be some issues.I only paid 2k for it.The bronco hasnt let me down yet.I use it to pull a ski boat and go camping.Its,strong,durable,and a lot of run.Its not a tahoe though.No smooth ride,multi sensored,electronic everything,overpriced soccor mom truck here.I average 15mpg and can tow fairly well.With the removeable top a bronco is an oversized jeep that can easily multi task with the modern suvs.Just not as refined,complicated,or expensive.
removable top,brawny appearance,big motor 5.8,cost to restore,no rust,fun factor over modern vehicles
gas mileage is inadaqute in all large trucks.Rear main seal design in 1990s model fords(leak oil).Wish it was 5speed transsmion.
I bought it as the only way to get out of a terrible lease on a Toyota T100 (most awful vehicle, the Toyota, I've EVER driven); mechanics and people who like Broncos tell me it's "excellent, just dying to be driven." I find it noisy to be inside, stick shift can get tiring, and the arms rests designed for someone about 4 feet tall (so I can't use them). Had it repainted last summer and it looks hot -- very tough -- yeah, "Ford tough." Makes me feel like a real outdoorsman when I drive it. I don't know what it's worth exactly. I just wish it were more comfortable for me, the driver. Maybe if I "just really drive it a lot" (everyone's advice) some day I'll like it better. "
Ive takin this rig all over Idaho Washington and Oregon. Huntin and fishin, the only time it ever broke down on me. Was after a trip through the desert the brakes went out. In my driveway. Love the ride
Ford needs to put tranny and transfer cases in their rigs built like they used to lately they've seemed a lil weak
