Same grinding noise
I purchased a 2012 Focus SE 10 days ago and the grinding noise started around 200mi. My car is in the shop and the Ford Service Director confirmed the noise today. The initial response from the Service Advisor was "Ford indicates this is normal until the break-in period after 5K mi." I had to escalated to the dealership for assistance. Next step is for me to drive with the Service Director to make sure we're hearing the same noise. I'm concerned they'll come back and provide the same standard response. This is my first Ford product and I feel like I've got a dud (lemon). I hope Ford can restore my confidence promptly.
