    Lately, I've noticed a bit of noise from what I presume is the power steering system. I hear a bit of noise while stopped or at low speed and turning the steering wheel.

    I haven't noticed this before and is this normal or should I bring it in for inspection?

    Not sure what it may be. Have you had the hood open to listen for the sound? If you hear it while not using the steering system it could be something else. If it is a new noise and is of concern then you may want to have the dealer look into it. Please let us know the outcome. Thanks.

    I'd love to hear a recording of it if you can grab it.

    I haven't noticed any sound coming from any of our EPAS equipped Ford vehicles...
