    Gonna Be Sweet When I Finish It — Love the older SUV's. The amount of room inside of the vehicle is beyond words. Ya don't feel like you're kissing the dash when in the front seats and there's plenty of room in the back, seat up or down. Great on gas considering it's size. Good acceleration and braking, and sounds awesome.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: The one and only Ford I've ever truly wanted

    Cons: The rear body panels and door are rusted out

    Awesome — This SUV is awesome. It has a lot of power. The downside is the interior, no carpet, and just destroyed. Exterior looks fine no major dents and maybe a fresh coat of paint wouldn't hurt. I don't know what the gas mileage is like. I haven't drove it far enough.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Four Wheel Drive, and not many are left

    Cons: Gas mileage

    Ugly With The Top On — So ive got a 86 bronco right now. its one of the comffyist trucks out there. for an 86, the interiors over the top. Rust is a big problem for the rear fender wells, and front rockers. Also the gas tanks rust easily. Parts for them are fairly cheap in my opinion. I swear this truck is unbreakable. its completely stock... and me and a friend Jumped it (abt 5-8ft in the air)and it drove home. the only thing was thetie rod bushing fell off, and that was it.. performance wise.. it handles like an 86, besides the steering.. the steering is so so smooth..

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: unbreakable

    Cons: Gas, and rust

    Very Good For Free. Fun For Off-roading. Going Far? Bring Extra Money For Gas, You'll Need It. — Good S.U.V. Not fast, but very powerful. Manual locking front hubs for 4WD to work. Good for off-road driving. Accel- 2 out of 5 Braking- 4 out of 5 Handling- 3 out of 5 Very cheap parts wise, and easy to fix. First year for fuel-injection, the technology was not so good at the time, still having to pump the gas to get it started. Appearance- 3 out of 5 The S.U.V. sucked when it came to getting good gas mileage, but a very cheap and easy fixxer upper. Overall, fun to drive, unless hyour trying to go more than 80-85MPH in it because that's not what it was made to do. Very fun driving off road. But be careful, seeing as how its higher off the ground. I almost rolled it once myself when I was on the highway.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Powerful, good for hauling, fun for off-roading.

    Cons: Horrible gas mileage, too much roll in turns, and has a few electrical issues.

    Old Car That Would Not Be Road-worthy By Today's Standards. — OK performance. Acceleration was OK as well. Gas mileage was abysmal, but then again it is a 1986 Bronco. One thing that really stood out was how easily it rusted. Another problem was that the seat bolts cracked after a number of years... not much for safe driving once you realize that the only thing holding you back from flying out the window was the seatbelt.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: At the time it was nice to be one of the few SUVs on the road.

    Cons: Gas mileage low, seat bolts snapping off after a number of years.
