I bought a new 2012 Candy Apple Red Focus Hatchback last May and noticed a grinding noise when I turned it! The car salesman said it was "Just the new tires breaking in" He said that while I was testing driving it. Well after months of this grinding noise I took it too our local dealer in Ada,Ok and they said the "Strut Bearings wre over torqued" and needed to be replaced. The parts took up to month to come in and after having them replaced guess what! The grinding is back!! Also forget to add I have a awful rattle in my parking brake that they couldnt fix! I would love to return this car and buy something else. It only has just over 1500 miles, Hoping Im not the only one with this problem!
