I wonder if it's inconsistent build quality and MT got a bad one from a batch? It wouldn't surprise me because there are such an overwhelming amount of variants and quality control has to be nearly impossible to maintain.

I think this is just Ford in general when releasing a new model. This is all too common over the last few new models of any vehicle. It's a bit of a gamble until they "figure out" actual production and QA/QC of the model.

It's only impossible to maintain if you are Ford. Can they ever get a rollout right? I'm no Ford hater as I have owned a few Mustangs and a Focus ST but they have to be close to the worst in the industry when it comes to build quality and issues with new model rollouts.

I am more convinced that the Bronco sport would be a decent vehicle to replace our Ascent. I can give it to my son when he hits 16 in 3 years.

TRENDING? Are YOU Seeing As Many Front End Fails On The New Ford Bronco As We Are?

We've been seeing more and more videos and shots of new Ford Bronco owners having front end/axle issues.

Are you seeing the same and what is your guess of what the real problem is???

This is why you don't buy a first year Ford.

Busted tie-rod on a vehicle being off-roaded doesn't really mean much.

Eh, yes and no. Ford is trying to take Jeep business away and if the competition isnít having issues like that, it could keep people from buying.

That said, I guess it depends on if they are abusing it off roading. Just like when the raptor first came out and people were jumping the **** out of their trucks and bending the frame.

Yeah, that's my point. We don't know what they were doing before it broke.

As long as it doesn't have a death wobble on the freeway, the Bronco will trounce the Jeep. If off-roaders need to install some beefier tie rods to bash rocks and pound over logs on the fire roads, that's just a gateway to modification.

I like Jeeps, particularly the new PHEV ones.. but Jeep can't make excuses for their crappy steering systems any longer.

100%. Itís why I sold my RS. 2nd production year, nothing but issues. Wrong HG from the factory on all of them. Had the TSB/recall, whatever performed. New HG, new Head. Year later, oil supply line failure. Month after that was fixed, bad transmission seal. All with like 6k miles on the ODO. Bye-bye after that. Ford routinely lets the customer suffer through the early years, failing at R&D and build quality, and tossing customers to their expansive service departments to sort out the awful quality. Damn shame too. I love that damn drivetrain and chassis. Engine falling short was the straw that broke the camelís back. Never again. First and last Ford product in my garage.

Wonder if the Bronco sport is having any issues... probably not as it is based on the escape.

I haven't heard of many issues with it. IMO it's actually one of the more compelling CUV's on sale right now from what I have seen. We need to get a new SUV for my wife and the market is full of uninspiring, mediocre, meh CUV and SUV's. The only reason I'm considering the Bronco is because it actually stands out and my wife thinks the Bronco Sport is on the small size for her given she transports a lot of musical instruments from school to school. Also looking at a GV70 but I feel it is maybe too nice for her and how she treats vehicles. Don't thin k the axle issue would be a big deal for us given we likely won't be taking it on challenging off road trails.

I think today's Recall is for the moon roof coming out off while in motion. Sport

I got to look at a four door up close at the football game a few days ago. Rear seat looks as uncomfortable as the Jeep's. Similar build quality to the Wrangler. Really wasn't too terribly impressed.
