It's definitely engine RPM-related. Though, it may have been this loud when I bought it and now I'm just subconciously looking for reasons to hate the car. lol

skiboarder119 I don't think mine has gotten louder over time, but maybe. I'm definitely starting to notice the engine (or exhaust rumble) more on the highway. I think its more common in manuals because we have higher RPM's naturally.

But I don't like the direction it's heading. I'm not willing to wait until it's making so much noise that even a dealer will realize it's worth attending. And if I remain stupendously lazy, I'll ask an independent mechanic to take a look at it.
I understand, skepticaleye. If you have any questions or concerns in the future, don't hesitate to contact me.

riparke "Re: sync
I sent Cassidy an email requesting that she give you a call. Her status shows she's away; I'm not sure if she's at lunch or out of the office. If you don't hear from her today, you should on Monday.

Have a great weekend!

Jaclyn"

Still waiting for that call from 1-25-12.

Dealers and ford are a waste of time, take time off for work for the dealer to tell you "It's normal". I will just turn the music louder.

FordService Hey everyone,

If you are concerned about the amount of noise your vehicle is making, a good next step is dropping by your dealership so they can inspect. Ford certified techs are specially trained to determine whether or not the behavior your vehicle is exhibiting is normal or not.

riparke It's a resonance drone at hiway speeds, when the second snow storm (13.5" last week and now 5 days later another 10" so far) lets me back on the roads I will get the rpm where its loudest.

dasilvarsa The Exhaust does not get louder. (Unless it's got a hole or the mufflers are damaged)
The Engine gets louder as it wears in.
I have 2 briggs lawnmowers Exactly the same engine.
One is New and it's Quiet One is Old and it's Noisy
