Hey guys. I've got someone interested in the V. I uploaded some videos but there is concern about supercharger noise. Mine has sounded like this for a while. As long as I can remember.

What's your thoughts?

I think you have some rattle but not too bad. What car are you gonna move into next? ATS-V?

mine has some rattle, but not as bad as that, GM dealer told me, windows up,doors closed,hood closed, 1200rpm, if we can t hear it rattle, have a nice day, so they didn t change mine, i have my selling dealer looking at it also, he says, not to worry. if it is still under warranty i would be taking to the dealer, worh an opinion.

Sounds great to my ears, nothing I personally would be worried about.

I don't know bud, sounds a little wonky. Has rattle, but sounds like there may be something else. Tough to peg on video.

You've heard others, what do you think?

I don't hear anything abnormal.

Geez-z-z JP, you could at least clean that engine bay if you're going to display it on youtube.

I haven't really heard any others up close at idle, in awhile. When everything is closed up, everything sounds fine.

I just listened to mine, same way as yours, and I think yours is fine.

GLWTS brother!

I am a New V guy, little over a month, and it sounds a lot quieter than mine does on start up, as far as I can tell sounds normal to me, the idle sounds good after start up.

Thanks guys. The buyer is known to some on these forums, I believe.

The cover tends to echo the sound by the pillows. Without it, its a bit more muted. And with the hood closed, I don't notice it at all.
