Front left tire, getting worse everyday. Worried to let my wife drive it. Happens when driving slow and making turns in parking lots, entering driveway,etc. Read all kinds of forums and analysts have said everything from the CV joint to issues with the wheels. Of course, car is just 8 months out of warranty. Also starting to have issues with the acceleration and skipping. I loved this car, but now starting to get all kinds of little things going wrong with it. Car has been babied and don't want to get into a newer model for more money. Anybody who has had this problem fixed, would love to get a diagnosis and rough costs to fix

I notice the clicking sound in the summer when I have my windows down. It has made that noise ever since I have owned the vehicle, which is now two years. I have taken it to tire shops, and they can't find anything wrong.

Happens during acceleration and has gotten worse over time. Had the front checked out by mechanic. and found no problem. Sounds like the cladding prob

Took to big star ford and they said it was from bad repair done after wreak repaired at the same dealer. If they fix I would have to pay for it because they had bought the previous dealer out and they were not responsible

Same problem, I'm making a left hand turn and the noise starts and proceeds while accelerating. Noise is only on the passenger side and does not happen when I make a right hand turn.
