    Just got back from the dealership and my car needs a new Rear diff. Only 2400 miles on it, never did a burn out, launch control, or abuse it. Anyone else have the same issue? They are going to warranty it, but it is 4-5 days out.

    The differential has not been an issue......some members here running low 10s without issue....some in the 9s but all of them may have installed the 3.09 but not sure...

    Differentials have not been problematic on these cars. Sounds like you just got a bad one. Should be easy fix. Swap in new diff. and be on your way!

    At first I thought it was my clutch but it was not my clutch. It was built 9/01/2015, it is a 2015.

    Turning slowly, at 30-45MPH and when in neutral.

    What happened when you put it in neutral? When turning was it a loud noise?

    When I put it in neutral, the noise was a little louder. The sound was coming from the rear while driving down a straight road and turning.

    Thursday last week, I was driving my car around town and started to hear a whining sound. Thought it was the clutch since when I pressed it the whining was louder. As I increased speed it was getting louder, so I called the the dealership and they told me to bring it in Monday. The end result is that I need a new rear diff. No one else has access to my keys since I lock them in my gun safe when I go to work.
