All I can really say is you probably would not have gotten banned on the Fiesta ST site permanently.
And people who have been banned we've let them come back several times.
Not trying to be disrespectful but the Fiesta ST platform attracts a more mature audience.
No religion, politics or name calling and you're pretty much good.

I challenge you to go read through all 140 pages and around 2500 posts in his troll thread.
BTW this was after about 2 years of BS he was confined to that thread. Many of us, like myself, started out trying to help but gave up when he was outright rude or ended up calling you stupid for having a pair to drive 2 hours away to buy a car or for getting a better deal than he was capable of.


Skim through this, then let me know what you think.
That way you can see what ACTUALLY happened. Lol

I believe you. He has been talking about the Focus ST/RS on here for years. I'm just saying he wouldn't have been banned on the Fiesta ST site. We don't permanently ban unless you do something terrible like put porn on the site, or throw racial slurs around etc.

We do temporary ones. 3000 post wow.

Yep sure have.
Some don't know how to stand up for themselves and get things done.

You have obviously had some bad experiences. Personally I've always been able to resolve an issue with a company. I never said it was easy sometimes you have to fight. But I know multiple people that have had brand new engines put in their car by Ford. Yes modified cars I didn't say a big turbo but a tune yes.
I guess they could be insane liars who just make crazy stories up for no reason when in reality they paid $6,000 when they said they paid nothing.

No, none of my cars are under warranty. I know what warranty is and most are voided on delivery day. I had my deleted and tuner for my Cummins before I even picked the truck up. Same with most of my vehicles. And my daily drivers are bought without warranties but I know how they work. Been in the car world a long time.

This kid brings his car in and they see 20 plus flashes on the counter and a blown engine, there is no way he will get it covered without spending ungodly money on lawyers. It’s my old car. It was big turbo with meth. Just returned to stock and sold it to the dealer he bought it from. They don’t know the history and they won’t plug in to check the flash counter. Just give warranty papers with fine print.

Sounds like shitty thing to do to somebody.
Sounds like you got a lack of ethics. I would never do that. Karma is a bitch.

But we can agree to disagree.

The whole premise of that thread started as a safe space for him to ask questions without hijacking other's threads.
That's what got him on the ban radar more than anything. He had soooo many warnings over the course of those 2500 posts.

I enjoyed having him around, as long as he stayed in the cave. Unfortunately one morning he decided to piss off a moderator. Not much coming back from that. Lol

I'm pretty sure he had a temporary ban a while ago too.

Well salesman are the slime of the earth so yeah. Just completely unethical in my book.


But you see this would be great proof right here would not require lawyers just post this to social media boom.

No dealership wants bad publicity and this would be bad publicity.

To summarize, I just got banned on the RS forum because I couldn’t find a late build 2017 w/ the revised dampers, head gasket recall done & under a 3/36 w/ under 15k miles. Had to be frozen white w/ forged black wheels & no sunroof. I asked a lot of questions & took a beating... The mods took a poll & the members voted to ban me.


So, then I go to the ST forum & the mods created a thread for me to post in.... I was told not to post in other threads or risk being banned. I finally buy an ST & verify it with a stamped note/dated etc., and then things went downhill..... I was not really given a warning, I was just permanently banned...


Kinda sucks on both forums because I still lust over the RS & I actually do like the ST & I cant participate on either forum now....


There’s a lot more, but that’s just a brief explanation as to how things went wrong........

You focus on mileage way too much.
Is that like an OCD thing?
The problem with buying a used car with that little mileage is someone bought it and decided they didn't want it. That's not the type of car you want to buy.

Why is mileage such a concern? on a side note the Focus RS is way overpriced it still has a crappy Ford interior. Sorry it is crappy compared to something like a Volkswagen.

Well, I do prefer a low mileage car... maybe it’s more of a mental thing, but I figure the less miles, the better, on anything pre-owned, especially on a performance car.

Plus I just like looking down at the odometer & seeing the low miles.....


Here’s a shadow black RS.... I just love how it looks with the black wheels...

We keep telling you. 10,000 easy highway miles is a hell of a lot better than 5,000 miles of launching and track days. Especially on a performance car....

With the world the way it's going today not trying to get political or anything you could die tomorrow seriously. Pull the trigger on something and just say the hell with it.

Also mileage doesn't tell you a whole lot 5,000 miles beating the shit out of it does a lot more damage than someone driving 40,000 miles going to work.

I want to try out that AWD system on an RS. The ST is a handful from a dig & also accelerating while turning. I can definitely see why so many of them are wrapped around trees or salvage titles if you don’t drive them responsibly. The steering wheel is constantly fighting you....

By no means am I looking to get any speeding tickets, however the RS is better from a dig or making a quick right hand turn & that’s what I’m looking for. Plus it has that beautiful rear wing, sexy front end & those black wheels lol


Bottom line: If I want an RS, I’ll just buy one.

That said, the price on my ‘18 ST is no haggle. I operate like CarMax & Autonation. The price is the price... You wanna spend 17k? Well then, there are plenty of high mileage, out-of-warranty & 2-3 owner ST’s out there... Good luck w/those...

How many miles did yours have when you bought it?

13.3k & now currently has 14.8k.

Lol ok, fun first 1k miles? Are you adjusting your price relative to more miles you put on it? I do suggest at least test driving an RS. That's what solidified my decision to pick an ST.

Wait, you own an ST and you're looking to swap to an RS? Just me, but unless you're on tracks a lot, the ST should be more than enough car for a DD. I get that the RS is pretty badass, but I wouldn't drop that kind of cash on a Focus.

Most people don't care about mileage like that under 50,000 miles I'm happy.

I can easily buy an extended manufacturer warranty for cheaper than what the dealership would charge.

I paid $18,300 for my Fiesta ST brand new. $19,800 with tax.

Ask Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond what car they prefer. That's no disrespect to the focus ST I still appreciate the car I just prefer small hot hatches.
