Suspension Clunking On My New Metal
Posted 12 January 2013 - 11:21 AM
Going over bumps, I get a sound like someone has whacked the rear N/S floorpan with a lump of 4x2 ! Seems to be at speeds between 20-30 mph.... Doesn't happen going over full width speed bumps. Reported my findings/complaint to my dealer who hasn't replied for over a week. Mentioned it in my Ford satisfaction survey- nothing
Doesn't happen on the wife's Tiatnium...
Before I go to my local dealer, anyone having similar problems ? If the car had a rear subframe, I'd suspect there were bolts loose/missing....
Apart from that, I love it. Pity the Mrs wouldn't let me have the 2.0 ST - she says I'm too old to be a boy racer

I made a packing piece using a plastic bag and some window foam, fixed!

Ford Fiesta Metal, bought September 2012.
It seems to come from the offside (drivers side) rear wheel. Same speed as your description and seems to be recurring more often.
Did you get yours checked out? Let me know what the problem was as soon as you can?
I'm paranoid about this as the Metal is a great car and I don't want any further damage to occur!

So a blank there. Sent a long letter of complaint to the original dealer asking what he suggests the next step might be.... I suggested he took it away for a week and drove it around.
For my part, I might take it to my brother in law's garage , get it up on the ramps and take a look myself.

Also noticed that when I change up, I just can't do it without the engine revs going up 100/200 rpm for a blip....
Also sometimes just won't go into reverse. Have to go neutral and try again....
Looking like a Friday car
