I'm not certain if anyone else on the forum has seen this yet but hopefully this issue will not appear in the 2016 Focus RS.

Ford will be issuing a new recall to bring back some of their 2015 Ford Focus RS after it was reported that some of them refuses to be turned off.

According to the press released, the Ford Focus RS which comes in with a stop-start push button won’t shut down after the drivers press on the push button and that the engine will keep on running even when the key is pulled out.

Even worse that it's happening to other volume products such as the Escape and C-Max, had a feeling this might be an issue with start/stop tech.

This does make me concerned as it could be an issue plaguing all Ford models with the same start/stop button. Just curious, has anyone seen this happening to any other car manufacturers?
