The primary concern revolves around a potential loss of engine power during normal operation. If this issue occurs, drivers may face challenges in acceleration, which can increase the risk of an accident.

    How do you fix the Ford Maverick and Bronco Power Loss problem?

    The fix for the Ford Bronco Power Loss problem involves an engine control software update aimed at identifying pressure drops within the fuel injection system. Upon detecting such an occurrence, the software will take preventive measures, including disabling the high-pressure fuel pump, reducing engine power, and lowering temperatures in the engine compartment. Affected owners will receive a prompt message advising them to seek service.

    What should I do if my Ford Bronco Sport or Maverick was Recalled?

    If your Ford Bronco Sport or Maverick are included in this recall, we recommend acting as quickly as possible. For further assistance or questions regarding the recall process, you can reach out to Ford directly at 866-436-7332, referencing the designated recall number, 24S06.

    While recalls aim to address specific safety or performance concerns, they may not necessarily resolve all underlying issues that could impact the vehicle’s long-term reliability or safety. Therefore, we highly recommend reviewing the vehicle’s condition and functionality even after the necessary repairs have been completed.

    If you are facing persistent issues with your Ford Bronco Sport, Maverick, or other vehicle, we recommend seeking guidance from a consumer protection or lemon law attorney. These legal experts can analyze the vehicle’s history, including past repairs, recalls, and recurring issues, to determine if it meets the criteria for classification as a “lemon” under applicable state lemon laws.

    If your vehicle is a lemon, you could stand to receive far more in compensation than simply covering or refunding you for recall-related repairs. A successful lemon law claim can conclude with cash compensation, a new vehicle, or a lemon law refund covering all expenses incurred on your lemon, including legal fees.
