well, mine does not whine at all... a friend of mine dropped by last week cause he was concerned his brand new 2012 GT had an abnormally loud whining trans
,so he asked me to do a cold start test for him.
When he got to my house,(he literally lives less than a quarter block away from me) I was outside waiting for him to show up, and I could hear his tranny whining as he parked across the street from me.
It sounded like an old style supercharger,but louder!!! at idle,the whine was more prominent than his motor.It almost sounded like a bearing type whine,without the crunching.
His ride is 4 weeks old with just 400+ KM on it, in my books, that's brand new.
I started mine up for him, but said nothing, we just sat there listening,within a few seconds mine came off the fast idle and settled into it's normal purr,then he wanted to sit inside,with windows up... then windows down.
Sitting inside his car with him,I could NOT believe how loud his while was,by this time I could see his demeanor changing rapidly,first thing he said to me was, "Mario,yours is so quiet...does mine sound normal to you? sure to hell does not sound normal to me".
He already took it to his selling dealer,and they told him what he was hearing was "normal breaking in sounds".
Anyways, we both drove to his dealer and again speak with the service advisor,this time I was there with mine, and invited the service manager to have a "listen" to both cars... within seconds, he says to my buddy, maybe there is something not quite right with yours... they agreed to open his trans
up and investigate the source of the whine... keeping fingers crossed for his sake.
He's upset as hell,and has a good valid reason, but I told him to stay positive and give the dealership trans
tech a chance to make it right,we'll see what transpires soon enough!!!
PS.On the way up to the dealership,we swapped cars, he drove mine and I drove his, and I could NOT believe how loud his whine actually was, if Ray Charles was deaf instead of blind,he sure to hell would have heard this one!
