There is a very annoying squeaking chirping noise from behind the dash.
Rear fenders are rusting out.
The electrical system has something funny going on if too many electrical items are on the volts drops.
The Driver seat has started to tear and the arm rest is broken.
The tuck has all the power I need.
I love the suspension.
Switched from 235 75 15 to 30 9.5 15 Lamans A/T's.
Besides the drivers seat the interior is perfect.
I love my truck.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I also have experienced an intermittent rattle or chirping sound from behind the dash of my 1990 Bronco. At 110,000 miles by 2004, I have had no transmission or major engine troubles. I love it's tight turning radius and superior side and rear visibility. The paint is just now beginning to wear off sharp surfaces. Only a few rust spots at bottom of the tailgate--keep those drain holes clear. I have replaced some moving parts-all window gears, wiper pump, and emission system components. My Bronco will be hard to replace.

I had a 1990 Bronco and I loved it!!! I too experienced that chirping sound. At 125,000 miles I blew the u-joint off and had to go to salvage yard to avoid high cost of replacement. The body was in near perfect condition until a little rust on the tailgate. I replaced the rear-main seal, valve seals, oil-pan seal, and the transmission seal. All after I rolled 145,000. Not bad considering I was 19 and drove that truck like, well, like a teenager with heavy foot and a need for off road. I also replaced the tires for 32 X 10.50. I miss my beast dearly...
