SuiTnTie Headliner rattle and passenger side door rattle have both been resolved. I still have an intermittent rattle coming from either the steering wheel column or to the immediate right by the a/c vent. I can't tell where exactly and I'm not sure how to isolate it. The rattle is not consistent, but it sounds like a piece of plastic is lose and is shaking/hitting against something.

No problem. I already had them bookmarked for when I decide to fix my own rattles.

I'd google it but I'm at work, haven't got the time to hunt. Thanks!

I've found that after years and years some restless actually get better.
Thanks for the info. My fingers are crossed that I can isolate and eliminate these rattles. I fully plan on driving this car for a full 5 years and I don't want to battle incessant rattles the whole time.

SuiTnTie I've had my focus two weeks now. I bought it used - 2012 SE w/ 19k on it. It was quiet as a coffin when I took it out on the test drive and remained so for the first week I had it. Then came the headliner rattle. Stuck some foam up there per recommendations on this forum. Seems to work.

But now I have a rattle from the passenger side door as well as behind/in the steering column. Reading through this thread has scared the bejeesus out of me. If the car rattles like this now when it's only two years old, what will it be like 5 years from now?!

RonMaiden I have a couple annoying rattles that I'm locating and going to bug Ford about them but this car has exhibited a bit more rattles than my 14 year old 4Runner with 180k on it and it's also bounced around off-road quite a bit.
