Regardless of who says not, its a fact... And then there is the fact of weather your vehicle is a Premium model or base model...The base model have quite a bit less sound deadening in them and this will just excentuate the different ratio gear noise....Like I said if its only a "faint' noise, get it looked at, but quit worrying about you are just hearing something your not used to, from the get regards Plum
That seems to be the case from what I've found as far as feedback. Well said.
