I think Ford did a recall for the head gaskets. I did think about getting a Focus RS down the road...but don't know how well they would be holding up by then. It would have to have some serious low miles on it for me to pick one up.
As the owner of a high mileage Ford (155,000 miles with maintenance only), former owner of a high mileage Ford (ex wife kept the 200,000 mile F150), and long time driver of fleet vehicles (both contractors I worked for used Ford exclusively, with over 300000 miles on the clock of some), I don't really understand the so-called "unreliability". Nothing against Toyota, I know they are quality, but calling Ford unreliable just seems silly when virtually every contractor is using them.
Gotta give some glaring looks at Subaru for that. I don't understand why they don't at least TRY to give it a little more.It would be cool if the engine from the GR Yaris made its way into the 86. I was really looking into one...but the horsepower it made was pretty depressing.
The 86 could definitely use a little more horsepower but I've got 85k fun filled miles on mine and I can only think more HP would definitely get me into trouble.It would be cool if the engine from the GR Yaris made its way into the 86.

Funny, my RS hasn't had any problems at all. The headgasket was tracked down and solved conclusively. The only cars now with headgasket problems are from people blowing them up or bad work from the dealer.
I’m think we’ll need to import some into the country. Start our own company, GR ImportsI want one so bad but Toyota probably won't bring it to the US. If they don't I'll "settle" for a used Evo 8 or 9. Only holding out on that purchase to see Toyota's next move.
Ha if that wasn't so prohibitively expensive I'd be down. To do it right and not be a Motorex 2.0 the NHSTA and EPA regs would mean buying at least 4-6 for crash testing. Then if it fails you'd have to revise, modify, then crash test more. And emissions is a bunch of paperwork and ecu tuning. By the time that's all done you're looking at a $60k hatchback, albeit a badass one.I’m think we’ll need to import some into the country. Start our own company, GR Imports
