Ford Focus RS finally gets a recall

Ford is recalling 2016-2017 Focus RS hatchbacks with potentially faulty head gaskets. The automaker claims they will be replaced free of charge. While the fix is estimated to take less than two days for each vehicle, Ford is offering to pay the cost of a rental vehicle for up to four days if needed.

 

 

The affected vehicles may emit noticeable white smoke from the exhaust or show low coolant levels with no sign of external leaks due to the failing head gaskets. Model years 2016 and 2017 Focus RS models built from Aug. 3, 2015 to July 6, 2017 are involved in this recall. Ford plans on sending the owners of the affected vehicles a letter this week. Ford dealers will pressure-test the cooling system and inspect the combustion chamber for coolant to determine if a fix is needed.

 

 

Ford’s service recall on the Focus RS will run through Jan. 31, 2019, no matter the vehicle’s mileage. However, if no action is performed on a timely basis to remedy the issue, Ford can deny coverage of any vehicle damage that may occur from the recall.

  • Volvo Will Dump Diesel Starting With Next S60 Sedan
    18 May 2018

    Volvo will not offer a diesel in its new S60 sedan, which will be released this spring. The new S60 will be available with a range of four-cylinder gasoline engines as well as two versions of its gasoline-electric plug-in hybrid powertrain.  This move comes as Volvo accelerates its shift toward electrified powertrains and away from diesels, which accounted for almost 80 percent of its sales in Europe last year. Diesel sales have taken a hit in Europe because of potential bans on older, more polluting cars with the powertrain and the high cost of improvements to ensure that new d...
