I've found that after years and years some restless actually get better.
Thanks for the info. My fingers are crossed that I can isolate and eliminate these rattles. I fully plan on driving this car for a full 5 years and I don't want to battle incessant rattles the whole time.

I've got a rattle in my passenger side door. My dealer fixed it and it came back. I haven't been able to get it back to them to resolve it again, I'm curious though, does anyone have a diagram with instructions to take a door apart and put it bak together so I don't break anything? I'd google it but I'm at work, haven't got the time to hunt. Thanks!

No problem. I already had them bookmarked for when I decide to fix my own rattles.

Headliner rattle and passenger side door rattle have both been resolved. I still have an intermittent rattle coming from either the steering wheel column or to the immediate right by the a/c vent. I can't tell where exactly and I'm not sure how to isolate it. The rattle is not consistent, but it sounds like a piece of plastic is lose and is shaking/hitting against something.

Just wanted to let you all know I too had the rattle in the headliner above the driver and front passenger seat and by the moon roof. Drove me nuts. Really annoyed since it was so new and so random. Seemed much worse in colder temps. Brought to ford dealership they cleaned the moon roof which of corse made it worse. Another visit had a drive with a mechanic of course didn't rattle then but offered me to put foam blocks in it. Dropped the car off again and at end of the day ford tells me they looked into it further the headliner is coming undone is a known issue and they're going to replace the headliner. Jeepers. Hopefully that helps but this was the only forum specifically detailing this issue and really felt brushed off by ford. Really annoying. Hopefully this fixes it and they don't do more damage repairing it.
