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.

Have you considered seeking a second opinion? You can find all the dealers in your area by ZIP here: Dealer Locate.

I have the same issue and I have been to the dealer 3 times since I got my car. However, I always told them I was 100% sure it was from suspension since the noise would be louder when turning. But after reading more on this site and seeing post like this one, I'm 100% sure that the noise is the clutch :/ So probably another trip to the dealer will be needed...
When you have the next appointment set up, please let me know. I'll look into some additional options.
