Hello again JCinKY

The offer to escalate the concern to the Customer Service Manager is available if the grinding rears its head again. To begin the process, I will need a PM with the VIN, current mileage, phone number and dealer information.

Hi sunny,

Congratulations on the Focus!

There is a break-in period of 1000 miles as stated in the Owner Guide on page 5. Therefore, give the Focus some time to smooth out. If after the break-in period the issue escalates, Iím available to help by arranging a call from the Customer Service Manager in your area. For me to lend a hand, please send a PM with your contact information, dealer name/state, approximate mileage, and the VIN.
