Look, Ford says it is the shift motors. If you don't buy that explanation, then show us some proof the noise is coming from something else. I for one am open to another explanation, but it has to be more than just saying "i don't buy it". Or, if you agree it is the shift motors, but you think it is harming them, then show us anything to support that.
I have nothing to prove that it is hurting anything. Conversely, no one else has anything to prove there's not going to be a detrimental effect down the road.

Bottom line is...I would feel a lot better if they all did it. THAT would be pretty definitive. But I went up to the dealer, got my salesman to grab the keys for 5 different 6-speeds on the lot and opened them up. 2 made the noise, 3 didn't. None of the cars had the bump-shift (or whatever the correct name is) option. Why some, not others, and why for 3 minutes everytime you open the door (unless you start the car)? That's all I'm asking.
