Someone in Massachusetts willing to help (engine noise)?
Is there someone in Mass. near metro west Boston (Maynard) who owns a 2011 or 2012 SRT-8 Challenger who would be willing to stop by my house or meet me somewhere so that I can see if the engine noise I'm hearing at idle is normal for these cars or if I need to press the issue I'm having with the dealer.
Basically at idle, I hear an erratic almost grinding noise coming from the engine area, but you can also feel it in the steering wheel and in the floorboards/pedals as a slight jerk. It's not at regular intervals but it is persistently there and very easy to notice.
I've had it to the dealer twice and this last time they replaced an engine mount, the service manager told me it was gone, I picked it up tonight and wouldn't you know it...first stop light I hit I can hear/feel it as clear as day.
I'm going to be calling them tomorrow (as well as Dodge, as they have a case # open for me) to tell them it's still happening. I just want to see if this is normal or if other SRT-8s are lacking this lovely feature.
If anyone is nearby and willing to just meet for 10 minutes so I can hear your car at idle, and maybe you could hear mine and give me an opinion, I would GREATLY appreciate it.
