2018 Ford Mustang, Focus RS: Quality Drops With Ruby Red!

By  | 

If you’re in the market for a brand new 2018 Ford Mustang or the Focus RS, you have to be wary of the fact that one particular colour option can bring the down the quality of the ride you purchase.

As how we have given it away in the title above, the colour which we are referring to is Ruby Red. This particular paint has been offered or a long while but its method of application has changed since last year.

According to Redditor Waferz, the Ruby Red paint has recently went under a huge reconstruct by Ford and it resulted in the absence of several extra layers off coat. As such, the Ruby Red paint won’t have UV protection which can lead to your Mustang or Focus RS looking faded, chalky and flaked in that order.

It is unsure why Ford has decided to change their Ruby Red recipe and we have to say it is a bad decision for them to do so. Prior to the change, the Ruby Red option comes with layers of coat to protect the paintwork. Quality is seriously on a decline here.
