2021 ford bronco sports called back for jiggly suspension modules

Ford has announced that 1,666 2021 Ford Bronco Sports are being called back for jiggly rear suspension modules. Seems that someone in the Hermosillo, Mexico assembly plant didn’t secure the rear suspension module to the subframe, which could affect the vehicle’s stability.

1,640 Broncos in the U.S. and its territories are affected, another 24 in Canada, and two in Mexico. These loose or missing bolts could increase the risk of an accident, and injury due to a reduction in rear-impact collision performance.

The build dates at the Mexican assembly plant were from July 22, to November 24, 2020. Ford dealers are being asked to check the bolts, tighten them if possible, or to replace them if it isn’t. The number for this recall is 21504. There have been no reports of any accidents due to rear suspension modules which have the wobbles.

    @Yankee--Hopefully no one crashes into you but you are still ahead of the game with a paid off vehicle that has reached the bottom of depreciation. I had a 2008 crew cab Isuzu with low miles I gave to my nephew's wife--my nephew is a mechanic. I also had a 99 S-10 for over 20 years that was in perfect condition that I gave to my nephew who wanted it because it was a manual. My nephew has a couple of buildings where he has a lift where he can work on vehicles. He just restored my granddad's 63 IH pickup with three on the tree and a straight 6. He gave my Ranger a going over with new brakes, new tires, and undercoating the bottom. Maaco repainted the Ranger and put the new bumper and mud flaps on it that I ordered on Amazon. I bought the Ranger last June before the price of used vehicles skyrocketed and plan on keeping it for a long time. Runs good and has cold cold air.

    Wasn't going to get rid of the Isuzu but she nagged me for it and I wasn't using it that much. The Isuzu had heated leather seats, tow package, fog lights, tonneau cover, chrome running boards, and only 31k original miles that I put on over 12 years which I bought new for only 21k. I had promised her the truck but I wanted to wait but after I found and bought the Ranger then I gave it to her. As little as I drive a used truck makes more sense but I was interested in the base Maverick until I read that it had the 1.5 and 2.0 engines with the enclosed fuel pump.

  • Chris P Bacon Ford and GM have decided that if you can't beat 'em, join 'em. Odds are Chrysler/Cerberus/FCA/Stellantis is next to join in. If any of the companies like Electrify America had been even close to Tesla in reliability, we wouldn't be here.
  • Inside Looking Out China will decide which EV charging protocol will become world wide standard.
  • Chris P Bacon I see no reference to Sweden or South Carolina. I hate to assume, but is this thing built in China? I can't help but wonder if EVs would be more affordable to the masses if they weren't all stuffed full of horsepower most drivers will never use. How much could the price be reduced if it had, say, 200hp. Combined with the instant torque of an EV, that really is plenty of power for the daily commuter, which is what this vehicle really is.
  • Ajla It's weird how Polestar apparently has better BEVs than Volvo. And this is the same price as a Pilot and Plus optioned Polestar 2 AWD.
  • Theflyersfan Another example of if you want a good looking truck, go smaller than the full-size. I'd like to see one of these in person. I wouldn't consider myself a FCA fan, but I think Ram has the best looking trucks of them all. And flags in the taillights? Corny, yeah. But why not? Jeep has little Easter eggs all over the place.
