Hi I am new here, im from Niles, and I just bought a 2016 ford focus rs and I dont have any idea what the car is capable off or what kind of mods should i put there, and I have read that this car has a lot of issues as well regarding engine, clutch recalls, transmission etc.. I really need someone who can guide me through it someone knowledgable that's why I am looking for a trustworthy tuner within my area or not far more than 20 miles, any help will be much appreciated thanks!

You are confusing the regular Focus recalls with the RS recalls.

The regular Focus has a massive transmission problem.

The RS does NOT come equipped with the crappy transmission that has been the recent subject of recalls and bad press.

The RS has only two recalls I'm aware of.

The Head Gasket recall.

And the wider, Focus general recalls for the hatch programming. Apparently in the case of a rear-end accident the hatch can pop-open so there was a programming change to the BCM.

Oh alright, thank you for the info, and by any chance,


Oh alright, thank you for the info, and by any chance if you happen to know a place like a trust worthy performance garage that specializes on focus rs mods and upgrades near chicago?
