Hi hope someone can help reassure me.
I've had my GSi now for about 9 months and there are a few things that irritate me, given the fact that the car isn't all that old.
1. When starting from cold, the engine does sound a little tappety, i appreciate that the oil needs to get around and warm up a little, but it just annoys me, am i been to picky, does anyone else's sound like this?
2. When pulling away usually when the engine is cold, there's an annoying vibrating noise, sounds like something metal or the exhaust is rattling, i can replicate the noise say if i went over a sleeping policeman slowly with the clutch dipped in 2nd gear and then once over brought the clutch up and pressed the accelerator, it just makes a noise as if something isn't tightened properly, if i over compensate with the gas then it doesn't do it.
3. Suspension / shocks. Now that the summer is approaching i've been driving with the windows down and when i go over pot holes / uneven roads there is like a tweeting noise coming from the suspension, at the point of hitting the uneven surface when the springs/shocks are compressing they make a whistle/tweet.
4. As mentioned on a previous thread i also have the problem of the rear brakes making a slight noise when coming too a rest.
My Net Q warranty will run out in August so obviously i want to make sure everything is as well as can be before it expires. I just feel the dealers will think i'm been too picky if i take it in mentioning noises to them when there doesn't appear to be a real mechanical problem.
In reality from other peoples experience what are the dealers likely to do under the Net Q warranty, for example is it unreasonable for them to put new pads and discs on the rear to cure the grinding noise?
Sorry for the long thread, this has just been something that has been eating away at me for a while now and i think its time i need to do something b4 it's too late.
Your comments are appreciated,
