chatter / grinding sound

Why does my 2012 focus ti hb with 50,000 miles on it make a chattering grinding sound when shifting gears? I took it to the dealer to look at the stuttering/lurching problem, and also this sound. They reprogrammed PCM and TCM, but also say there is no problem. The grinding sound is embarrassing, when I give people rides in my car they say things like "dude what wrong with your car". Is this really as good as it gets? Because this sucks.

I just took mine in for the same thing and they fixed it. I don't know what kind of warranty you have but they need to take a look at it. They replaced the 2 clutches.. the cracking and jumping when shifting from 1 to 2 or 2 to 3 is gone.

Negative Nancy^ ^ ^ I'm sure it will with this beautiful new 2 clutch electronic transmission that is oh so fuel efficient. At least now it doesn't make any noise and has smooth gear transition.

Either way you're going to hear these noises with this system. Just like a manual transmission but should not be loud and unbearable to listen to like mine was. The guy at Ford tried to make me feel better by saying all the new Porche are using this system.
