I had bought my car and they completed it before I bought it at Stanley Ford.

About 6 of us from the Facebook group have gone to Town East Ford. They have had good results and the same two guys work on all of them.
What FB group is that?

I have a '18 Race Red LE RS... picked it up mid-December. Around the same time moved from Frisco to Prosper. Good to hear there are other RS owners in the area... :)

I’m in the process of making a final decision on which dealer to do the HG recall work.

I bought the car from Covert Ford in Austin.

I spoke directly to one of the techs at Covert that does the work yesterday about the process and his experience at doing the work and I am generally satisfied.

A few highlights:

1.) They do not pull the engine from the car for the work, rather they do it with the engine in the car.

2.) He indicated that they have done a number of recalls for folks in “Austin RS Club” and said they would be accommodating if I wanted to provide ARP head studs to use during re-assembly as they have done this for a few people. (I did not ask about alternative head studs, he shared this info willingly and even commented that he knew that the ARPs were the same as the Mazda 2.3 studs)

3.) He said that they would not be able to keep the car inside while it was awaiting parts (space limitations) but that it would remain inside until all work was complete once the work has been started

4.) I could take the car home to keep in my garage between the leak-down test and the parts arrival if I desired.

Anyone else care to chime in about their experience with Covert in Austin? He did mention “club members” so I’m curious if that refers to anyone here.

Hey y'all! Been a LONG time lurker. Been wanting an RS since it was rumored to be awd. The love-child of my 2004 WRX and 2012 Focus SE. Once the financing came around I pulled the trigger and haven't stopped smiling since rolling off the dealership lot! Looking forward to getting more involved in the forums, meeting other RS owners, and driving the RS for years to come.

Dunno if that intro qualifies for me to be mentioned as Texas RS owner, hopefully it does. .__.

Just moved in from California (yeah, yeah, I know). Bought mine from Serramonte Ford in Colma, CA. I'm outside of Austin in Leander. Glad to see so many of us around.
