I love this truck! Yeah, I have spent some serious money fixing things on it, but it's worth it.
The one thing I don't like is the fact that the brakes need to be replaced A lot. I was told from a mechanic that the Broncos have always had this problem.
The gas mileage isn't so bad depending on the distance you travel. I drove from Ft. Myers to Orlando (180 miles) on almost a half of tank of gas with the air on the whole way. So I thought it did pretty good. I rented a PT Cruiser for the same trip a month ago and it took three quarters of tank to get there and that car has a much smaller engine!
It's just now starting to get dime size rust spots over the fenders and above the passenger door which I will have fixed by the end of the year.
Overall, I love it. I got it used for $10,500 and have not put as much money into it in the 7 years as I did the Audi 5000S I had for only 4 years.
This car is easy to work on, rides and handles well and when sitting in it, you feel as though you are sitting in your favorite recliner!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
