No updates yet. However for the first time ever I drove a Ford Focus into my schools parking garage without scaring the shit out of people with the noises my car makes! It's gonna be a good day :p well at least until they call and say "we couldn't replicate the issue, your car is ready for pickup"
:p I'm optimistic though maybe mine has a bad seal or something

I don't know if I was hoping for a miracle but I just got off the phone with the dealer who told me "it's normal". This has pissed me off so much!!! Ford is basically throwing its customers under the bus and really doesn't care as long as they sell more.

Since I go to a pretty large university I'm thinking ill just asking if they will post an article about Ford on the site since they do it for other things. My local news station is also looking for consumer affairs stories so i guess I can give that a shot too. Ford might brush me under the rug but I don't give up without a fight.

I am very appreciative for your willingness to help but if this is just going to be another call with the CSM I really don't think that is going to help. Thanks though

I am of course going to make sure there is no way for them to get me for libel or anything, its going to be my opinion of the vehicle I purchased and the service in the Virginia Beach area. It will also be a lot more grammatically correct because I won't type it on my phone . They way I look at it is if I get at least one person to not buy a Focus I have done my job.


There really is nothing else for me to do as I have been to both dealers already and c'mon now the sound is obvious so either Ford is telling them not to fix it or they are paying so little they don't even want to deal with it

Yep. That's about what I expect from the dealership visit Cory is pushing me to make.

If I'm told again that the OBVIOUS PROBLEMS with my car are "normal", I'll end up doing what this guy did:

I suspect that is exactly what is happening.
