RS as a daily driver?

How would an RS perform as a daily driver vs. an ST? I always see so many used RS models for sale with under 10k miles & was wondering why? Iíve also noticed that many dealers still have brand new 2017 models on their lots. Seems odd?

A quick look I see one w/ 25k for 27.700.....Kinda quite a lot of them out there used for sale.....Possibly the h/g issue & the rough ride spooks them....Once the h/g is sorted all you need to do is install a quality c/o kit to smooth out the ride....Seems like it doesn't really need anything, least I would do anything to it but drive it & enjoy it.....They really pull that you don't need to do anything, but drive it & pay it off.........

Iíd love to drive an RS for one week before I commit to spend 35k+ on a Focus. Iím so curious about the ride quality, the seats, the MPG & the manual shifting. I think the white & gray RS both look sharp!

If its your only vehicle, figure on getting a quality c/o kit, shifting gears is part of the experience & the mpg is about 20 all around(when not beating on it) + it has a slightly bigger fuel tank compared to the st.....I myself find the rs seats more comfortable then the st3 seats....Have a look at the Nitrous blue...<3 the pearls & thats the correct color for a RS.....It is very addicting to whip around....
