Yeah, when I disconnect Bluetooth it goes to FM when I had previously been listening to Sirius. At least mine goes to my last FM station that I was using. Before the last update, it would go to some random FM channel like 88.1 which was either static or religious music depending where I was at.Maybe one day they'll get around to fixing the bug that cause my radio to change stations to FM after ending a phone call handled by SYNC. Never had an issue like this with my non-American cars. (read Honda and Toyota)
mine does that if it is unable to reconnect to BT stereo for any reason.Yeah, when I disconnect Bluetooth it goes to FM when I had previously been listening to Sirius.

Good luck with the squeaks and rattles, so far I have only managed to get one fixed by the dealer. One thing I will say in fairness to the dealer is that this car had some incredibly weird acoustics and noises seeming to come from one spot can often be from somewhere totally different. Still though, for all the fuss Ford made about their NVH engineers, this thing rattles way too much.
I had a rattle that I was convinced was coming from the passenger's door... but then I had my roommate drive while I searched for it and it sounds like it's actually under the dash or in the glove box.I agree with the acoustics. Makes it very difficult to pin point them.

You don't have to give up fuel efficiency, the 2013 mazda-3 I had said 35.6 overall on the dashboard including highways always at 70+ if conditions allowedThe only way my 2013 drives normally is if I drive it like a blind in one eye 130 year old man. Any demand for torque screws up the whole shifting algorithm. I believe The car wants maximum fuel efficiency and will do anything to accomplish it. I would gladly give up fuel economy for a car that drives better.
