Hi jpr0204 & meattooth,

Itís a pleasure to meet both of you!

Letís have a Customer Service Manager review your concerns. In order to do so, please send a PM with your contact information, dealer name/state, approximate mileage, and VIN to begin the escalation process.

@jpr0204 - My family moved to A-town many moons ago.

3. CV joint.
4. Right front motor mount.
No dice. Noise is still there...
Hey Focus eh,

I thank you for your patience as the dealer diligently works to address the concern. Another great resource to contact is the Ford of Canada Customer Relationship Center. Give them a call at 1.800.565.3673 for assistance.

Hi Dysan911,

Have you visited your local Ford dealer to have this addressed? If you havenít, please make an appointment as soon as you can and send me a PM with your VIN, dealer, mileage, full name, and best daytime number. I will get this escalated to the Customer Service Manager for your area.

Have a great weekend everyone!
