2016-17 Focus RS recall coming for 'white smoke' issue

Ford Australia has confirmed it will reach out to owners of the Focus RS hot hatch for an engine fault that could see vehicles expel white exhaust smoke and consume excessive amounts of coolant. The issue was first reported last month, after owners in the UK complained their vehicles were misfiring and smoking from the exhaust when the engine was cold.

Ford Focus RS500 hero hatch on the rocks - report

According to Autocar, the circa-295kW hyper-hatch is currently around a 30 per cent chance of entering production (according to unnamed sources), because there isn’t a strong business case for such a model.
