LMMT; looks like you do not have a sunroof, I really thought that might be the problem.

Believe it or not...I work at a GM Dealership. Just because the Ford garage didn't need any help when I was out of a job. I had thoughts of buying a microphone for a Cruze and seeing if that would work in my Focus TIT. Any thoughts on if this would work or not? I haven't heard any noise complaints from Cruze drivers??

FWIW.. The mic in the ford is a simple 2 wire design. If the Cruze is similar it should be a quick easy way to test it out.

The mic. in our SE has the same problem. I used 2" foam from a cut up pillow and it did not help. I cut it to fit the hump area it's in.

Nope, no sunroof. I'm still not happy with my masking tape repair. I redid it, to make the hole smaller, but I'm not sure if it really is any better. I have a few more ideas I'll try, and will report back.

Solved my problem today. Picked up my brand new 2013 focus titanium hatch. Salesman on other of my phone conversation told me phone sounded 900% better. Ford couldn't fix my problem, so they replaced my car with one that works the way it should.

That's one yell of a fix ...gotta love Ford!

Seriously tho ... So the 2013 doesn't have this issue or is the whole post just a joke?

I can't attest to the 2012 but I just picked up my 2013 on Monday. I have used the system countless times already and haven't had a single person complain about anything. Granted the amount of time for sampling is small I've had zero problems.
