I just purchased a used (one owner) 2011 focus s with manual transmission. The test drive went okay. Now, that I have had the car a few days I'm noticing a knocking noise when I start the engine. It's like something bangs the underside of the car. once the engine is started there is no knock. I'm wondering if this could be the transmission mount?
The other thing I have noticed is a vibration shifting into second gear, at around 2,000 rpm. This has happened only once or twice in any other gear.
Has anyone else with a 2010/2011 manual noticed these issues? Purchased from a non-Ford dealer. Will a Ford dealer inspect these issues for me? ford customer service is welcome to comment.
