I have no doubt the Bronco might be stiff competition for the wrangler. A huge advantage the wrangler will have for at least several more years is the ready availability of aftermarket products...skids, lifts, etc.
I’ve only had my Recon for 3 months and 2,000 miles. It may turn out to be a piece of garbage but my review regarding “Initial” quality at this point is very positive, After reading these forums I was very hesitant about ordering a new Jeep.
Are you using 87 or 91 octane? I just filled up with 87 octane on my 2.0 and it seems to be running hotter, but we don’t have mountain passes...just 100 degree heat. That’s a bit anecdotal...just a thought.
Pretty clear to me - they used the wrong grade...time for a redo. As far as trusting their trained people - you mean that 18 year old kid who knows nothing about engines? Oil changed are relegated to the least experienced.
Yep - a dumb mistake multiplied by drowning a couple vehicles. Alcohol may have been a factor? My nephew did the same thing but managed to get the boat loaded on a trailer which he proceeded to tow up a boat ramp (hull full of water). Blew four trailer tires and rear tires on pick up.
If Ford has somehow figured out how to make IFS with more articulation, that would be good news for many of us. Choice is good. Some in this board seem very concerned the Bronco might be successful in competing with the Wrangler.
I understand the frustration and I have experienced the same situation. However cleaver name calling merely reduces you to the pathetic level of the offender and risks some crazy pulling out a gun and shooting you. Unfortunately we can’t fix stupid or rude self centered drivers.
I think the Defender would be great for the type off moderate off-roading I do...,but LR unreliability is too risky. FCA is poor...LR is worse because of how expensive maintenance becomes after a few years. I really like the Defender but would wait a few years to see how it proves itself...
I think the biggest problem with the price is the value proposition...the wrangler has become too expensive for what it is. For goodness sakes in 2021 they are charging extra for gray non metallic paint. I wonder how much Jeep makes on a wrangler compared to what Ford will make on a somewhat...
I’ve read somewhere to run premium in the turbo when stressing the engine such as high speed Driving in hot weather w/AC or when pulling a trailer. I’ve run both 87 and 91 in my 2.0 and I really can’t tell a difference in city driving. Thoughts?
I realize this thread references the Bronco but the with the price of a loaded JLUR exceeding $60,000, the V6 supercharged Land Rover Defender 110 is only $10,000 more with an air suspension that creates 11.5” clearance and pretty robust skids. I believe it will have a factory winch option. If...
