Just bought a 2005 Ford focus zx5 off dealership and yes its used. But I was driving home the other day and heard clunk noise. Now.I took it to. Garage and they said tie rod end is loose. Would that make a clunk noise when driving down the road? Also when I put it I reverse or drive it seems to clunk a little when put in gear. Any suggestions?

Check axles and have front end checked it may be struts. Your steering would be sloppy if it were a tie rod end.

Well turns out was the differential in the transmission so needless to say I returned it to the dealer. Won't attempt to buy a car off them again. Thanks for help.
