    RSs without problems raise your hand

    Hi all, I'm getting a bit tired of the recent negativity surrounding our cars. I have a strange feeling things are being blown way out of proportion. This thread is to add some positivity here! For those that have RSs with some miles without any major issues (ie. engine failure/drive train issues) please check in!

    Let us know your mileage please. I'm at 4k miles, mostly all of it in the canyons at 4k+ rpm and zero issues. No PTU leak either and mine was a May '16 build.

    Please vote in the poll and add additional notes to the thread if you love your RS!

    10k Km's checking in. September '16 build, Tune+ tuned since 3k. Colder plugs, WGA, intake filter for power mods. Only problems - frozen exhaust flapper which has a pcm flash now. 1 denso plug had the ceramic insulator break. Drive it hard daily, but would be lying if I said I wasn't a little nervous due to the negativity here.

    I get the sense that a lot of people are nervous, trying to change that!

    No problems here. April '16 build with 7,500 miles. Been tuned since day one. Only hiccup was a bad step colder denso plug that caused misfiring until I replaced it.

    I'm at about 5k km now, no major issues. Only minor issues are occasionally windshield washer doesn't spray fluid (hear the motor going), and squeeking from the passenger seat.

    A whopping 1380 miles since January and no issues except the heated mirrors really don't heat which the dealer will address in 120 miles. Built 10/16 and waiting for a Ford approved tune.
