Get it once in a while but dealer says it is normal. I say B/S find out what it is and fix it :thumbdown:

I would recommend keeping an eye on your concern, and, if it gets worse or more frequent, I would recommend contacting your local dealership. Please feel free to contact me directly if you have any future questions or concerns. Thank you.

If your getting 28MPG city driving on an AWD you've got something none of the the rest of us have!

We occasionally hear a noise on our 11 I-4, but it is not coming from the engine, it sounds like a thudding/knocking some where around the exhaust. I have not been able to record it from inside and when I try out side, I can't get to it in time or don't have a recorder ready. It is sparadic.

New vehicle on 6/28, happened twice, both times after sitting for at least 6 hours. Lasted for few seconds. Contacting dealer today, not happy with any motor noise with less 200 miles on odometer. It sounds like lack of oil, my first new GM product and not making a good impression!

YES, immediately upon start up for a few seconds, then it goes away. :'(

Have heard it twice so far - once when I first got it in December... a nice -20c start. Sounded like diesel was parked beside me starting up. Heard it a second time last week. +28c, windows down. No mistaking it for a different car when the windows are down. Not a pleasant sound to hear.

I would be happy to look into this as well. In order to do so, I will need some more specific information from you. If you could please send me your full name, address, phone number, the VIN for the vehicle, current mileage, and dealer name via private message, I will be able to take further steps. Thank you again and I look forward to hearing from you.

Tricia, GM Customer Service.
