2021 Ford Bronco engine failure complaints lead to NHTSA investigation

The 2021 Ford Bronco is now under federal safety investigation after 32 Bronco owners complained of alarming engine failure experiences.

“Under normal driving conditions, without warning, the vehicle may experience a loss of motive power without restarting due to catastrophic engine failure related to a faulty valve in the 2.7L Eco-Boost engines,” according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) report. He indicates that the investigation was opened on May 27.

Documents Ford files with NHTSA indicate that 25,538 Broncos may have this problem.

The survey, originally reported by Carscoops.com and FordAuthority.com, will determine whether Ford should recall its vehicles for repair. Recall costs have been an ongoing issue at Ford, so much so that the company recently hired a quality expert to fix a problem that costs the automaker billions each year.
