So i have a SEL Focus build date 22.11.2011 with just over 1K on it now and i absolutely love everything about it... except when it shifts from 1st to 2nd gear i get a nice chatter/grinding/uncomfortable sound. I see several others have or have had the same issue but have yet to see anyone with the low speed chatter either have the issue fixed or be told it's normal, so should i be concerned or just let it ride out and see if it worsens? Thanks!
Wow, I have the exact same build date on my SE! I am going to get the transmission reflashed pretty soon. The 1st to 2nd gear sound is happening on mine too every once in a while and the reflash is supposed to fix it.
