    Welp, Looks like I have squeaky exhaust valves. I saw another thread that they ended up changing out the entire cat-back just for them. anyone else deal with this? I originally thought it was the suspension till another user said that and it turned out to be the valves. I noticed it happens when adjusting the throttle i get a squeaky note coming from the back.

    It's a loud audible squeak even heard with the windows up. I'm not the only owner to report it.

    Yes I have the same problem. Just been too lazy to go get it taken care of but I'll bring it up at my next service.

    Sadly, there are just some people who hear "noises" in their head such as "voices", "squeaks, creaks, groans", etc. Fortunately, these days there are medications and other therapies that are pretty helpful in relieving those types of issues. Some people predictably always seem to find (or imagine) the worst of everything. By the way, I wonder how that Lemon Law thing is working for him these days? :cool:

    The squeak is pretty noticeable when it happens. I thought it was a problem with the suspension at first that's how loud it can be and I notice it under cold start which is already pretty loud.

    Working fine, They are attempting to find a place to preform warranty work if not they buy it back. So far they are out of luck. You guys just seem upset that people report problems with a car

    They bought my 15 back after down for 47days and still not fixed. Why is it wrong to spend $70k on any car and expect to be able to drive it?
