Just don't have the time to take it in to the dealer and I was hoping to hear some follow-up on this before I have to. Thanks
When you set an appointment up with your dealer, please let me know, along with your mileage. I'll check into this.

Have you had a chance to speak with your dealer about the beeps?

When the time comes for you to go in for your oil change, please give me a heads up, along with your mileage.

Once you set up an appointment, please send me a private message with your VIN, mileage, best daytime phone number, full name, and dealer name/location. I'll check into some options.

Looks like I'm due in about 2k miles, so within the next 3-4 weeks. Will that still work?

Thanks!

haven't heard those sounds before. my car (while off for a while) will usually make very quite (battery?) churning kind of sound - which seems normal to me.
the only weird noise i get sometimes is an electronic sound randomly when i'm driving, like the car is mad at me. It sounds different then the sound of the proximity sensors, ive had those sounds before too. Its a constant sound just like when the sensors think something is way too close, but it sounds slightly different. It also happens when I'm not near anything. It makes me think that there is something wrong, but there is no notification and the sound goes away after 1-2 seconds.

just had a standard check up last week @ a local ford dealership - forgot to mention it since it really doesn't happen that often, but the car was fine. only 2200~ miles so far.

If this continues, I'm happy to look into it further. Just let me know. :)
