2014 Flex. 75 miles. click/knock

I purchased a 2014 Flex for my wife today. It is the first Ford I've purchased. The first 50 miles the car was running great. I came up to a light and heard a rattle/tick/knock at idle. I put the car in neutral and gave it some throttle. Under throttle (in neutral) the noise is always there. As soon as I let off the gas it stops until it gets back down to idle again. The tow truck came and got it. I am going to call the dealer in the morning. Any problems that are consistent on these 3.5 NA motors? Ill keep you all updated.

It almost sounds like it could be from the variable valve timing.
