With about 100 miles on my Braptor I noticed that the fuel gage was jumping around and wouldnt go over 1/2 a tank. (with a full tank of gas). Then the gauge started moving up and down randomly. My ford dealer/service department got on it right away and diagnosed the problem as a bad instrament cluster. Parts are scarce so no telling how long until a new unit arrives. Also, when I picked up the vehcile I noted that 8 Fender Liner Retainers Clips were missing from the passenger wheel well area. My dealer has seen this on several Bronco deliveries. So, when you pick up your vechicle take a few minutes to carefully inspect the wheel wells- these are easy to miss.
