1986 Ford Bronco II from North America
Cannot find a tougher vehicle
Have two of these vehicles; one with an automatic, one with a manual transmission. One with over 400,000 miles on it and the other between 360,000 and 400,000 miles.
The manual transmission unit had to have a water pump and valve cover gaskets replaced. Also replaced the radiator and a few heater cores. Transmission synchronizer went out at a third of a million miles.
Due to a lot of off highway use, front U-joints were considered a service item.
The unit with an automatic had the transmission rebuilt twice and gaskets replaced on the motor. Also had a radiator, heater cores and water pump.
Unfortunately I have been disappointed with most other vehicles when compared to these.
Cannot find any other vehicle that is as reliable as these, nor as sturdy and tough as these.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
