What is annoying is when people say it is a problem, but offer nothing to back up the assertion. If anyone can demonstrate that the car is being damaged, I think all of us will expect Ford to correct the problem. However, people insisting that there be a recall just becuase the noise offends them, well . . . That is something different.
Ford provided an explanation of the noise. If anyone disagrees with Ford's explanation, then the ball is in their court to prove why it is wrong or BS. You cannot expect Ford to prove a negative - that the noise is not causing damage - you must prove that it is. If anyone does that, I (and I am sure everyone else) will back them up 100% on insisting Ford do something.

MK3 Focus = a lot of good ideas rather poorly executed.
