Recently a center console rattle/buzz has popped up that's really annoying.

These rattles and buzzes are what I am most disappointed with on an otherwise great car that's 10 months old.
Don't know if your dealer has looked at your headliner, but they actually can make these better. There seems to have been advice from Ford early on as to how to do it.

On the squeak/rattle front, I found one was coming from the the rear parcel tray in my 5 door. Pulling the parcel tray off its hinges and coating the hinges with some silicone (I used Napa Sil-Glyde brake lubricant) solved the problem.
