Just curious, does anyone get any carbon buildup on or around the exhausts on these cars? I'm at 5,000 miles and have none whatsoever. I've had two Escapes ('14, '16) with the 2.0, a '14 Fusion Titanium, and a buddy with a Focus ST, and all get serious carbon buildup on the exhaust tips within a few hundred miles. Heck, even my '10 Focus has a dirty (not rusty) exhaust tip around the lip.

I heard somewhere a while ago that Ford was starting to use some sort of coating on Explorers and Edges to prevent the buildup (I could be wrong, I just remember reading it somewhere). Like I said, I was just curious about this as I just noticed how clean my exhaust tips are.

My 2.0 SE AWD had buildup on the integrated exhaust ports. My FS, on the other hand, has no such buildup. Thankfully.
