Bought a new 2021 BS, Outerbanks last February. When the car starts up there is a vibration in the steering wheel. Going up hills or around curves at low speeds,35 mph, car vibrates from underneath as well. Not a lot but I feel it and I know it is there. Between 24 nd 28 miles an hour, there is a rattle as if something is loose coming from under the drivers side front similar to a loose cable. It has become louder since purchase. Goes away as I accelerate. Dealer stated they could not replicate any of the issues. I have owned other all wheel drive vehicle and have never experienced any of the aforementioned issues. Anyone have any similar issues. I love the looks of the car but don't know if I will keep it. Can anyone offer any insight into what may be happening? Thank you.

My 21 Base also does this on cold days, warm days, when the cars cold when the cars warm, it does it all the time. I’ve been told it could be a torque converter but I’ve driven many cars, Fords and Chevys, that have preformed like this so to me it just seems normal behavior for an unbalanced system. To each is own but I’ve gotten use to it and just ignore it. Not to recommend that’s what you do but just wanted to let you know you’re not the only one.

Thank you Vince. Love the look of the car but just question how trustworthy it will be long term. Looking at a Kia Sportage as a possible replacement, Thanks for your thoughts Vince.

No problem. I’ve been thinking the same thing with reliability especially with the Bronco Sport being in its first generation and Ford has a lot of bugs to work out and a lot of trial and error things to do to better the next generations. I’ve been mainly looking into an Explorer or F150, but the new Kia Sportages are very sleek and stylish vehicles and I have to say I’m a fan of what Kia has done with them. Whether you keep the BS or trade it in, I wish you luck!

Thanks Vince. I had a 2018 Ford Explorer qnd it was a great car. Wow, what a smooth ride compared tot the BS but, of course a very different car. Kia Sportage Prestige SX, MRSP 35k loaded but dealers are adding on 5k, do you believe it!! F150 also a great choice. My son Dan loves his. Good luck, used cars are bringing a premium.
