At this point it's no longer as urgent as it once was to have it repaired. I have decided to trade it in on a new Titanium Escape.
Wow; big decision! Remember to grab a new Escape badge right after you do it: I hope you'll remain an active member in this forum.

You'll need to visit your dealer to find out more about this bulletin.

Thanks for the offer, though!...This was my very first visit to the service department and I gave them checklist of things I needed them to look at.
You're welcome! Please let me know how it turns out for you.

I realize I have the '10 model, but my Focus has such similar suspension maladies to some of the ones you folks here have been experiencing...
Sent you a PM earlier today. Our dealers will do the best job possible.

Yay for me !
Cruising in the Focus is your new quiet time!

Hey guys -

If you haven't done so, zx3matt, please PM me your VIN, mileage, phone #, and dealer info; I'll loop in your Customer Service Manager. Thanks a bunch for your reply, dyn085! Totally agree with you.

Have a good weekend,
