No it wasn't. They wanted to charge me to investigate the noise as it was past the factory "comprehensive" warranty of 60K km even though still within the Powertrain warranty. Since the cause wasn't immediately obvious to me and they wanted money just to investigate, I decided to leave it at the time and see my own dealer (which I've never done since owning the new car - figuring staying loyal to Ford Service would pay off with a new car and loyalty - guess not). My mechanic shop ordered the part and replaced it the same day while showing me how bad it was.

On a side note, when they did the Works package (which I've had done about 8 times throughout lifetime of car so far), they never identified the wheel bearing issue. So much for comprehensive inspection...

I have used three different dealerships in Brampton/Missisaauga, one in London, and finally the one in St Thomas which is where I live now and had the recent poor experiences.

I only had one replaced at the time (rear passenger). My mechanic told me that one of them going bad at only 70K km is a bad sigh meaning the other would be soon to go. Lone behold, the noise seems to be picking up on the opposite side in the part few days. 77,800 km on my 2013 Focus...

Yeah maybe if I had tons of money, a fix that may cost me 25 for a part will cost 200 for a dealer or any mechanic to fix.

I agree I would rather go to Firestone then a useless dealer.
Included in works service top off fluids hum coolant at min mark for 20,000 miles asked to check for leak couldn't find any problem safe at this level said they would top it off. Checked in parking lot still at min. No I will not drag them out to look.
They replaced the plastic pice under wipers didn't put them on right hitting post took it back another half day wasted showed service advisor how you could switch passenger whipper on top of drivers and would correct its self on first use while he was showing me the alignment marks for them he was in awl never heard of such a thing. So wonder how they missed the marks the first time. Oh and had to reinstall that pice myself it popped out. Go figure.

PratoN I feel stupid that I paid for an alignment and continued to drive my car with bad bearings for like 60k miles. lol

In my defense, I told the alignment shop to check my bearings and they never did. The bearings aren't that loud and the wheels were never loose enough to shake, but I sure did ruin some expensive tires.

pablo94sc Powertrain covers bearings to 60k. I had my passenger rear replaced a few weeks ago at just under 49k miles. I'm wondering if this problem is mostly limited to passenger rear or if both sides are equally effective, and if the degree of negative camber from the factory is exacerbating the problem.

jeff58 Hi Wgilles,

Yes that was my assumption, but the dealer fixed it and said it was covered. I was prepared to push the issue if necessay, but did not need to. I was at 39k miles, so it must have been power train warranty coverage.
