Hello,
I am new to this forum as I just purchased a 2012 SEL Automatic Focus in October. Yeah, I have issues with the awkward shifting but I'll get used to it I guess.
I tried reading through all the posts but there are 46 PAGES of them - so here's my issue:

If coasting from 30-50mph, and I then step on the gas, I get a loud intermittent "scratching" sound coming from the engine. Goes off when I step off the gas. Have no idea what it is but sounds bad.

Just wondered if anyone else had a similar issue. Thanks.
