Every Focus ATX I've driven will pretty much exhibit the clunk of a loose dogbone you can easily feel by rocking power going on and off while driving, I'd think MTX would show it even more pronounced.

Easiest way I've seen to tear the bottom rubber out of pass side is to strike or jump a curb or bump something with wheel on that side to come to a sudden stop. The mount only thing holding engine from moving front to rear, it easily rips out doing that from engine inertia. Pretty goofy to engineer that mount without a front/rear restraint link built into it, the Japanese certainly don't.
