Some do and some don't

If it is making this sound and is "in spec" just the same as a focus which does not make the sound is in spec, well that is piss poor engineering/quality control.

People don't want to hear unusual sounds with a brand new car even if it is "in spec" especially, like I said, not all of our cars do this. Simple as that.
I suspect that the ones that do have issues are Union made and the ones that don't are made in Mexico. Seriously now, my car dosen't make any alarming noises on initialization. That being said I had a shuttering issue until the computer learned and adjusted to the way I drive. No shuttering since. That was around 100-150 miles on the odometer. now I have 5,500 miles on it.
If your car is clicking for more than 3 minutes then START IT for Chrisake and make the clicking go away!
