I thought it was the transmission making noises, but i don't know... Did you bring yours in and get it fixed? If so what was the issue ... Mine is an 2012 SE with the sports package if that matters.. Do you know if the suspension is different with the sports package or is it the same as all the other SE's on the road?
Hi 3focuslater,

The SE sports package doesn't modify the suspension; it'll be the same as the other 2012 SE models. If you'd like, I'm happy to get your case escalated to your regional customer service manager. Just send me a PM with your VIN, dealer, mileage, daytime phone number, and full name; I'll do the rest.

Let us know how things go, Lipshurt. I'm curious as to whether or not this will be a lasting fix for your clunking noise. I'll keep an eye on this thread, but also feel free to contact me via PM as well.

Thanks everyone!
