Ford will replace all hardtop roofs to fix quality issue

Ford Motor Co. will replace hardtop roofs on all Bronco SUVs due to quality issues, the automaker said Thursday.

In a letter to customers, the Dearborn-based company said the so-called “pot-in colored hardtops” on both two- and four-door Broncos have been identified with a quality issue that does not affect performance, but an “unsatisfactory appearance when exposed to extreme water and humidity.” The Bronco also comes with a soft top option, and that has no bearing.

The 2021 Ford Bronco is available in a variety of colors and configurations with 2 or 4 doors.  Removable doors as standard.

The automaker said it doesn’t expect replacement roofs until October, after which updates will be prioritized for the oldest units first. The letter was first posted on the Bronco 6G forum and reported by Automotive News. A Ford spokesperson confirmed its authenticity and the company has issued a FAQ sheet on its website to help customers.

“Our customers who already own a Bronco with a hardtop can continue to drive it in the wild and we will provide them with a new hardtop free of charge as soon as possible,” Ford said in a statement. “Unfortunately, some customers who have ordered two-door and four-door Broncos with a hardtop roof will have to wait a little longer.”
