    I've never heard any noises with the 2011 Limited I had. Not sure if the MKT has the same setup but it is -9 F here today and no noise problems.

    I have a creaking sound also (MY 15 2WD XLT 16,000 miles). It's not cold weather related as I live in California. At first I thought it was coming from the lower control arms or possibly the ball joints/tie rods. My wife rotated the wheel while I listened outside and I could not hear a thing. It is clearly audible in the cabin. It has been doing it for the last 6 months or so and seems to be gaining in consistency.

    - Looks like I'll be going in for warranty work because creaks and leaks dont get better with age.

    I assume you are referring to your vehicle.;) And, they are only covered under the factory warranty. Good luck.

    Hi there, smellthebean!

    Do you already have an appointment in the books? Please message me your VIN, best daytime phone number, full name, and dealer name/location. I'll check out some options.
