1989 Ford Bronco II from North America
Go with a different SUV
There are several rust parts on the passenger side door- despite waxes and being kept in a garage.
The gas tank started to leak in 2000, and it cost $400 to replace it.
The muffler had to be replaced.
The 4 wheel drive acts up a lot. Sometimes it works, while other times it will kick and click.
The paint is chipping in the front and all around above the doors.
The air conditioning is shot.
The radio knobs fell off, which shouldn't matter because the speakers blew.
The best... my tire actually popped off on the express way. Luckily, I was not speeding and got over. I'm only 18, so it was pretty scary.
Broncos are known rollers which always scares me when I take turns.
The fuel economy is awful. It is the biggest gas guzzler- you couldn't imagine.
When going over bumps, it jar's your guts. It's very uncomfortable over any little imperfection in the road.
The keyless entry stopped working.
My dad bought this car from a lady who babied it. It was in good condition then. He had for a few years, then gave it to me when I turned 16. He has shelled tons of time and money into that car. We're selling it now because he bought me a ford probe- hopefully it won't have any real problems. The Bronco was always very well taken care of, but I guess after so many years and miles, things starts becoming crap on it.
I will say that the heat is great, the seat are comfortable, and it feels like a sturdy SUV.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
