    Sorry about the confusion, didn't want to start a new thread, perhaps I should have seperated my problem from the topic.

    The noise on my SRX sounds like a racheting/exhaust noise from the right center, and is more prevelant as the day goes on. Starting in the morning the car sounds normal, as the car is driven more the noise becomes louder.

    I complained to the selling dealer about the noise the week after buying the car. They stated it was normal V6 noise. I'm sure they tested it when the car was cold. The certified 6 yr warranty is up in July so I need ideas to come back at the service dept with.
    Take it to them when it's hot and the noise is prevalent and force one of the service advisors or a mechanic to take a ride with you right when you pull in

    Best advice I ever heard, when a dealer says "that's normal" is to have him show you 2 other matching cars the do the same thing. I'll wager your dealer can't.

    Hi RobM,

    I understand you want help from other forum members, and maybe there will still be good advice offered as the days go on. As for now, I agree with arw1510, as in going on a test drive with the mechanic in your vehicle at the same time, so you are with him discussing your concerns. I hope this helps, and I am still waiting to hear back from the internal sources on your nav screen digital clock; I did not forget!

    Regards,

    RE: Having the S/A or Mech go along. I'm planning to do that, I was hoping to get some info/ammo from this forum of any tech bulletins or similar issues that I could bring up to lend credence to my complaint.
