    No it was a year. I was kinda unemployed for a spell. So getting it fixed was pretty low on the old priority list. Haha

    Well know i am getting a sound out of the rear of the car. It sounds like a loose spare tire in the trunk but as we all know, there isn't. So thats awesome.

    So I took it back for the ride along with the tech. He said there is something definitely causing a noise. The advisor said I would need to leave it again. Is it wrong to ask for a courtesy rental?

    I don't see why that would be an issue to get one.

    So I got a 2.0T ATS as a rental. Zippy little car. The technology is very impressive. So is the pickup when you go through the gears. It's no V but it will do.

    Hello ChurchSTSV,

    I apologize that you are experiencing a concern with a sound in the rear of your vehicle after getting the gas gauge issue resolved. I do see that they provided you with an ATS as a loaner. Please keep us updated on the result of the dealership looking further into that noise. Please feel free to private message me if you would like us to contact the dealership as well.
