Ford’s Trail Turn Assist feature on the Bronco SUV has come under scrutiny from two drivers when they found broken axle welds after using the feature. We reached out to Ford to find out what they know about the problem. According to the automaker, there isn’t a problem at all.
We recently told you about how these two Bronco owners found broken axle welds after using Trail Turn Assist.
