Bronco Sport Recall List

Every new vehicle a manufacturer makes can and will be plagued by problems of various sorts. The Bronco Sport is no different, as it has it's share of recalls. If you have watched any of our videos for any length of time, you will discover we have made some information videos about recalls. We may have missed some recalls, which is another reason why this  list is being created. Below will be a complete list from NEWEST to OLDEST and a details of what the recalls are about. If anymore recalls come up, they will be added and the numbers will be changed accordingly with the newest recall always being on the top of the list. The same will be done for the Bronco as well.

While Ford does try its best to contact every owner of each affected vehicles on their recall list, some do fall through the cracks. Owners concerned their vehicle may have a recall but never were notified by Ford should run their vin in a recall site (either on Ford or NHTSA) to see if anything shows up. We do this a lot because we own so many vehicles; we do not want to let them slip away into obscurity. Be your own advocate. It only takes a few minutes if that to find out if your vehicle has a recall.

BRONCO SPORT RECALLS LIST

2023 Bronco Sport: ANTI-LOCK BRAKE CONTROL MODULE

Recall #: 23V021000  / Ford Recall #: 23S01                               Date of Recall: January 22, 2023

PROBLEM:

Ford is recalling an unknown number of 2023 MY Bronco Sports as the ABS (anti-lock braking system) control module could have possibly been damaged during manufacturing thus causing an internal leak. The leak can therefore cause the brake pedal to travel or have unexpected movement during the Auto Hold (if equipped) event, thus increasing the possibility of a crash.

SOLUTION:

Recall #: 22V859000   / Ford Recall #: 22S66                          Date of Recall: November 17, 2022

PROBLEM:

Ford is recalling an unknown number of 2021-2023 Bronco Sports with the 1.5L 3 Cyl. Engines for the fuel injectors in these engines may be cracked and could leak fuel in the engine compartment. Fuel leaking in a hot area could ignite and could possibly cause a fire.

2022 Bronco Sport: FUEL PUMP CONTROL MODULE

Recall #: 22V787000  / Ford Recall #: 22S66                               Date of Recall: October 19, 2022

PROBLEM:

Ford is recalling an unknown number of 2022 MY Bronco Sports for a bracket on the Fuel Pump Control Module. Why this is important is because if the bracket isn’t properly installed on the fuel tank assembly, the pump won’t get the fuel it needs to pump into the lines, thus causing the engine to stall. Should an engine stall, the risk of a crash happening increases.

SOLUTION:

The Service Department will replace the fuel tank assembly under warranty. Ford mailed out letters to the owners of the affected vehicles on December 1, 2022.

PROBLEM:

Ford is recalling an unknown number of 2022-2023 MY Bronco Sports for the Exterior Light Control Module. What this means is, parking lights could flicker when the headlights are being used.

PROBLEM:

Ford is recalling an unknown number of 2021-2022 MY Bronco Sports with the 1.5L engines for the oil housing separator could crack and cause a leak. If a leak occurs in the engine (where the ignition source is via spark plugs), a risk of a fire is a possibility.

2021-2022 Bronco Sport: BRAKE LINING / CALIPERS

Recall #: 21V922000   / Ford Recall #: 21C31                         Date of Recall: November 11, 2021

PROBLEM:

Ford is recalling several 2021-2022 Bronco Sports for improperly manufactured brake linings on the rear brakes. What this means is that drivers may have to increase the pressure on the pedal to get the vehicle to stop safely; and also increase the distance between them and the vehicle in front of them. The normal distance it takes a vehicle to stop is 126 feet (about .04 km) at 60mph (about 97 kph). If the brakes fail – the distance allowed by federal regulations is 551 feet (about .17 km) at 60mph (about 97 kph).

When NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) tested the same vehicle as part of an audit of compliance in November 2021, they discovered it took 583feet (about .18 km) to stop the vehicle with inoperative brakes. This is 32 MORE feet (about .0098 km) than allowed by the federal regulations.

Affected vehicles failed to comply with the regulations of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard #135 “Light Vehicle Brake Systems”.

SOLUTION:

The Service Department will replace any brake components related to the recall. Ford sent out notification letters to the owners on August 17, 2022

2021 Bronco Sport: DETACHING SUNROOF/MOONROOF

Recall #: 21V809000  / Ford Recall #: 21S46                               Date of Recall: October 14, 2021

PROBLEM:

Ford is recalling a number of 2021 Bronco Sports with sunroof/moonroof glass as it may not have been bonded to the vehicle correctly. Enough time may not have been given for the adhesion to cure the glass to the vehicle. If the glass detaches in the event of an accident, it could increase the risk of injuries. Leaks of air and water could also occur from an improperly secured roof glass.

SOLUTION:

The Service Department will inspect the roof glass’ date code (as most recalls are from a certain span of dates) and replace the glass if necessary. Ford mailed out notification letters to the owners of affected vehicles on November 18, 2021.

2021-2022 Bronco Sport: FUEL PUMP CONTROL DRIVE MODULE

Recall #: 21V625000   / Ford Recall #: 21S38                          Date of Recall: November 17, 2022

PROBLEM:

Ford is recalling an unknown number of 2021-2022 Bronco Sports for the fuel delivery control modules which could leak inside the fuel tank. Fuel leaking in the fuel tank can result in low pressure, thus preventing fuel from reaching the injectors and spark plugs causing the engine to stall as the end result.  An engine stalling can cause an accident.

SOLUTION:

The Service Department will replace the fuel pump module under warranty. Ford sent out interim notifications on September 30, 2021. A second notification (the actual recall notice) was sent out on December 14, 2021.

2021 Bronco Sport: REAR SUSPENSION SUBFRAME ASSEMBLY

Recall #: 21V075000  / Ford Recall #: 21S04                             Date of Recall: February 15, 2021

PROBLEM:

Ford is recalling an unknown number of 2021 MY Bronco Sports for the rear suspension subframe assembly as it could have missing bolts or loose bolts. Missing or even loose bolts on a subframe structure will affect how the vehicle handles and controlled. The subframe also play a part in protecting occupants in the vehicle in the event of a rear end collision. Loose or missing bolt on this structure could possibly affect the part from performing that task as well.

SOLUTION:

The Service Department will inspect the rear subframe assembly for loose or missing bolts and will either secure or replace said bolts. It is unknown at this time when Ford notified the owners of affected vehicles of this recall. The recall started on March 10, 2021. Any questions or concerns – contact Ford at the number below.

PROBLEM:

2021 Bronco Sport: DRIVESHAFT

Recall #: 21V011000  / Ford Recall #: 21S02                             Date of Recall: February 15, 2021

PROBLEM:

Ford is recalling an unknown number of 2021 MY Bronco Sports for driveshafts not having adequate lubricant. An improperly oiled driveshaft (which turns the rear axles of the vehicle) can cause seizures of the rear axles – meaning they will freeze or lock up. A locked up rear axle can cause an accident due to lack of control of the vehicle.

SOLUTION:

The Service Department will inspect the driveline (driveshaft and rear axle), check the lubricant levels. Those found with inadequate levels of fluids will be filled to the appropriate levels. It is unknown when Ford has sent out letters notifying customers of the affected vehicles, but the recall started on March 12, 2021.
