NHTSA investigating Ford Bronco 'catastrophic’ engine failures

This is for the 2.7L engine.

The Ford Bronco is one of the hottest vehicles on the market today, but some haven't been firing up at all.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is looking into dozens of reports of Broncos suffering "catastrophic engine failure."




quote:

According to NHTSA's Office of Defects Investigation, "under normal driving conditions without warning the vehicle may experience a loss of motive power without restart due to catastrophic engine failure related to a faulty valve."

The Ford fanboys waited months through a chip shortage for these things…only to have major issues with the hard tops.

And now they get engine failure because of a defective valve train.

I think some different rims and tires might help some

Ticking time bomb.

Just buy a Wrangler or a 4Runner. Both will last longer.

I saw 2 identical green Broncs at a residential house party last night. I don’t care for them much at all. They both had the black soft top and it looked very ill fitting

Now, I’m worried if they made it home safe and I don’t even know the people. Great.

They recalled all the hard tops I think. Or was that a different model?

They're probably going to bring the hammer down on Tesla's autopilot at some point too.

I know they are very popular vehicles but I don't really care for their look.

Yeah but you don’t expect a new engine to just grenade like that.

All Broncos are turbo.

Probably because of how fat coeds are these days.
