Talking what a racket

Hi,

Just thought I'd let you all know about the funky front end noise in my 2001 Focus ZTS.

So, winter arrived on the Canadian prairie and almost right away the roads were bumpy with ice. And almost right away the car would rattle horribly driving ove the ruts. I checked the forum - what else can I do - read a few things and took my car to the dealer and suggested the few things I'd learned from the forum. Anyway they said thanks but they'd start from scratch. Good on them for knowing their business.

Anyway, my funky rattle was because the sway bar links had snapped. They were replaced (about $200.00 CAD) and the car is great again.

Again, kudos to Maclin Ford in Calgary.

Later,
