Hi everyone. I purchased used Ford Focus 2012 a month ago and its mileage is around 40400 miles.

In the first week itself, I've noticed Screeeeeech sound while taking reverse and then applying brakes. The frequency of hearing this sound is very less.

But 3 days before, I noticed huge vibration in steering for about 3 to 4 seconds while accelerating at lower gear.

And today, I noticed the same problem. The vibration is much greater than before and it happened when I apply brakes. The first vibration occurred when I slowed down in speed breaker and the second happened when I applied brakes during the turn and I was about to lose the control.

So, after noticing these things I went to mechanic explained him everything. Unfortunately, none of the things happened when he took the test drive.

Any idea what's going on with my car? I don't have even basic knowledge to I identify where the problem is.

Any help is appreciated.

It occurs randomly. Some times it will say hood ajar. Sometimes not. It stops when I put the key in the ignition. Can go months without it happening and then it starts up again. Do I need to replace the hood alarm sensors. If so where are they located? Or how do I clean them? Thank you.
The oil light and everything else is good just wondering what the yellow light that looks like a motor means.
I have a progressively (getting louder) squeak from the passenger side of my car. When I had my oil changed, Quick Lubes, told me that it was a bearing or two around the alternator. And it is a 5 hour labor job. I am trying to save up the money, I am just not sure how much time I have. It has 204, 000 miles.
If I replace the hub do I replace the bearings?

First is was the passenger door latch that broke, then the driverside. I have bee patiently waiting to hear about a recall on these doors. We're using bungy cords to keep them closed. Safety issue. The part is over $100. The entire door has to come apart & cost more to fix it.
