If the engine is not started the noise keeps up for a few minutes then quits.

When we asked the Dealer, they really couldn't tell us what what was making
the noise but assured us that it was normal.

We haven't had any problems with anything. Car runs great and everything
works normally.

Anyone know of this noise?
LOL - I just came on here to post this same question. My 2013 Titanium hatch does it as well. I was wondering if maybe it was the grill shutters opening and closing or something. I am not sure if it stops once the car is started or if the engine noise (and radio) just drown it out.
MK3 Focus = a lot of good ideas rather poorly executed.
