The American automaker has confirmed to Autocar that some 2016 and 2017 Focus RS models produce 'white exhaust smoke' as they burn coolant during cold running. The company wouldn’t confirm a recall, but a spokesman did say Ford is 'working on a repair for all customers.' If owners are experiencing the issue and seeing white exhaust smoke, they are advised to visit their dealership for an inspection and repair under warranty.
