New Ford Bronco Sport Off To A Rough Start With Two Recalls In Less Than A Week

This is not the first time Ford launches new vehicles only to quickly be faced with various issues


  • The first recall involved the rear suspension.

  • The latest one concerns the front suspension.


Within a five-day span, Ford has issued two recalls involving its hotly-anticipated Bronco Sport. The robust-looking compact SUV is slowly but surely trickling onto roads across the continent however not all is going to plan.

The first recall, which was announced last week, involved the rear suspension. According to Ford, some components may not be completely and properly secured to the rear subframe. In all, 1,666 new Bronco Sport models (1,642 in the US, 24 in Canada) are affected by the recall.

The latest one is also related to suspension however the bugs are up front. During the assembly process, some Bronco Sport SUVs were fitted with front lower control arms, according to Road Show. This recall involves only 106 units.

In the last few years, Ford’s had a number of problems following the release of new models. The current Lincoln Aviator (and Ford Explorer) comes to mind as quality and reliability complaints and problems flooded the internet after its launch. In fact, we’ve just completed a week-long review with a 2021 Aviator and it didn’t exactly go well… This situation explains in large part why Lincoln’s dropped so intensely in Consumer Reports annual brand report card.
