    Yes, we are having issues with Ford.  They wish this and other sites to be closed down - not to worry because we're not going anywhere.
     
    More updates on this as we progress.......

    Hyundai is the only one that really hasn't as they gambled and kept orders with chip manufactures when everyone else cut orders last year. They however are starting to get hit with the foam issue and other components related to suppliers cutting orders.

    valve reacted to jcartwright99 in Bronco Sport PTU overheating??   
    I think the reality here is that both Ford and Jeep know their entry level products are more about image than ability. Don't get me wrong, the Compass, Cherokee and BS, even in their lower models with less off road worthiness, have more capability than 95% ~ of their buyers will use. The more off road versions would probably be at 98%~. If you need more, off road ability there is a Wrangler or Bronco for that. The numbers don't support over engineering a part that is currently sufficient for all but 2% of the buyers. 
    It's smart to have the electronics intervene and prevent damage. It's a much better idea than having it overheat and then it's toast.

    Think about this, how many people are going to hoon their Bronco Sport for 15 minutes straight in the sand full throttle? 15 minutes is a long time in that context.
     
    Where this hurts the most is image/marketing. The appeal of the Bronco Sport and how it's being marketed is that is can go anywhere (reasonable) and that gives people the "I have it if I need it" mentality. Now as stated above, most customers won't have any issue. However, the more the press brings it up the more of the image of the BS takes a hit, even though it's really a non issue.

    Ford Authority has a few images of the Maverick beside a current generation Mustang, showing a good comparison on length. Based upon the length of the current Mustang (189 inches), it looks to be less than 200 inches overall for the Maverick. A good length I think.

    This jives with our speculation on the other thread on size. 195"~200" was my guess.

    Still an odd comparison since I don't think the intention of either is to beat the CX-5. They are competing for different buyers. They may be in the same size class but that's about it.
