He said that they have replaced sprigs and struts on numerous vehicles and that the noise came back in them all. The engineers have deemed it normal and no repair is to be attempted any longer.

Maybe I'm missing something here...but what you just shared basically means while 99.9% of the cars on the road DO NOT have this issue...we are supposed to be good with "it's quit complaining" with regards to our brand new 2012 vehicles??

My grandparents all the way to me have been Ford customers almost exclusively...what a shame Ford is actively trying to change that.
