Ok, thank you - at least it sounds like it's a "normal" sound then... Sure seems to be a lot of strange, but "normal" sounds with this car (tick when cold, groan at cold-start, strange electronic-like noise when washing the car, etc)! :-)
Does anyone else hate that there is no trans fluid dipstick??? I mean, I get it, the fluid level *shouldn't* change unless there is a leak - and it needs be checked when the fluid is at a certain temperature, etc, but damn, I'd still rather to be able to check it on my own! For all I know, the trans fluid is low, for whatever reason (underfilled at factory, it's leaks while driving the car but not while idling, etc). Hate they they take this "basic" stuff away from us... The fluid-level-check is so complicated, I'm almost afraid to have the dealership check it...
Another "strange" sound that I've noticed is that my HVAC actuators seems to make a noise every 5-10 seconds (can hear it when the radio is not on and sitting at idle) - at least I *think* it's an HVAC actuator - mainly coming from the dash right in front of the driver. Almost sounds like something is "stuck" and it constantly tries to adjust itself. Then again, I have a feeling this may be "normal" too. :-) It's on my list of things to have the dealership check...
