I was holding off doing something about it because I wanted to make sure Ford was using new parts that weren't going to fail again in 500 miles.
It's a shame that Ford tries to make the Focus appear to be a high quality small car by using upscale materials and sound deadening, but then they shrug their shoulders when god-awful noises (that are NOT normal) make their way into the cabin from the suspension and transmission.
I guess the Sony stereo was chosen for its ability to drown out the rattles and clunks. It'll be getting a workout in the future.
Shame on you Ford. You're losing my respect.
