"Have had my 95 for 3.5 years. Put nearly 40k miles on it in that time. Was a great vehicle for use in college. I was in the mountains and it did very well in the snow and on occasional back-road trips. As well as hauling my friends and me and all our stuff around. The only real downsides to it are the ever present rust issues, I've replaced about $4k worth of parts that rusted through and broke. Gas mileage is the other killer, open highway I've seen as high as 21, but the average is more like 15-16. And city mileage is barely over 10. Still debating about getting rid of it for a more practical daily driver, or keeping it. Would recommend, there's a good community on the internet that can answer almost any question you have about it. Be sure to check the steering on any one that you look at, mine's worn out and needs to be replaced. It'll feel fine on a flat road, but as soon as you get to something with an angle too it, it can get wobbly fast. All of them have rust on the tailgate and the wheel wells go out quickly as well. Don't make the mistake I did and pay more than it's worth."

"I bought my '89 Bronco, used, 13 years ago and I still LOVE it! It's very dependable, turns on a dime, great power (351 Winsor, v8), and looks amazing! I'm only 5'2" & I'm very comfortable. I utilized the 4x4 yesterday and it was smooth as silk getting out. Anyone that knows me, knows that I'll never part with it! Maintain the oil, filters, etc. and it'll take you anywhere you want to go."

I own this car - My approximate mileage is 149,100overall rating 10 of 10rating details
Pros: "Engine, Turning circle, Fun to Drive"
Cons: "Gas mileage, only 4-speed auto"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9
"I'm only 16 and my dad wanted me to have a car with guts, and safe enough so that an accident would just leave a fun battle scar. I love my bronco, especially because we got a super aftermarket paint job. If ford would have had a 5-speed automatic, for the mileage, I would give this perfect 10's. Bilstein shocks give the right amount of bounce, and keep the corners.... interesting. I would just criticize the gas mileage, but my parents say that if I keep my grades up, that won't be a problem. At 149100 soon to be 150000 and I'll drive it 'till it dies."
