    Ford Focus RS Owners Are Reporting Wide Spread Head Gasket Failures


    Imagine paying over MSRP for a Ford Focus RS, keeping it stock to preserve the factory warranty, and watching as the car blows its head gasket. This sad tale is becoming the norm for many Focus RS owners who have taken to Forums and Reddit to share their experience.


    and further in the article

    This movement of tracking the head gasket issue has also moved to German Focus RS forums where the issue is growing. AS of right now the forum has tracked down forty cars effected by a failed head gasket.
    History is a statement, the future is a question.
