There seems to be an intermittent what my neighbor describes a ticking noise in the right end. The noise is only at high speeds, 40 MPH and up, I think it is a wind noise that might be coming from somewhere.
Other than that, she runs very well since of course I take very good care of my Focus.
And the best thing about my 07. I have just made my final payment!
I am going to do my best to drive this car until the wheels fall off, so I can pay cash for my next ride! With the mortgage, and expenses of a house, I am done with throwing money away on car payments. Rant over :-D
I have that same tick/clicking noise coming from my car too. Started last spring around 85k, have 95k on it now. If you figure out what that noise is let me know.
