1986 Ford Bronco II Eddie Bauer 2.9L V6 from North America
Fun and affordable 4x4
First thing that went wrong with the Bronco II was Fuel Pump Relay at 111000 miles.
Clutch began slipping at 112000 and was replaced at 112500.
Majority of the repairs were made prior to my purchase of the vehicle.
Most expensive and seemly insignificant part replaced was the computer chip at 96000 miles for $1500.
I enjoy driving my Bronco, it gets me around just fine and I have never been stuck while driving in muddy or snowy terrain.
Much of my ride is rough due to the shocks being worn.
Interior seems pretty spacious for being a compact SUV, plenty of room to move from forward seating compartment to rear cargo area.
I will continue to repair this truck until it finally falls to pieces.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I also have a 1986 Ford Bronco II Eddie Bauer Edi. and I love it. I have owned and parted with 25 vehicles, in 6 years, in search for the perfect car, and friends, perfection has been achieved. If you are looking for a car that is spunky with decent fuel economy, 4-wheel drive, and very reliable, find a Bronco II.

I also had a 1986 Eddie Bauer Bronco II... and I loved it. However, my husband managed to flip it... but probably due to his driving habits. However, if you need to make a quick turn or swerve to miss something on the road, it's a tipper. Be careful... have fun.
