When those rare moments occur when the rattling is loud enough to be heard over the radio, I have visions of the recall which must happen in the future. Until then, I suppose I'll simply grit my teeth at those moments, and thank goodness I bought the extended warranty.

Good Luck Fellow Brother and Sister 2012 Focus owners. Keep posting and let's see where this issue leads in the end.

those sounds are NOT normal and your dealer service manager is an idiot. if they were normal we would all have them and as can been seen from the posts in several threads .. not everyone has them.

Frankly if you can I would find another dealer to work with, and be honest and blunt as to why you are changing dealerships.
