What's going on! Looking to see if someone can help me out here. My car has been making strange sounds when pressing the gas when RPM is above 2K. The sound seems to be more apparent when switching gears and pressing on the gas harder than normal. I'm not abusing the car. The sound also seems to appear when you are on gear, let go of the gas and quickly press on it. In other words the car is jerked slightly.
The sound is like a case of water bottles moving around in a tight packaging. More like creaking sounds. It seems like it is coming from the trunk and at times it sounds like it is coming from the shifter and the extended arm rest. I cant seem to pin point exactly where it is coming from. Any one have the same issue? Normal of a WRX sound?
Below I have attached a video. It's not coming from the trunk lid as I removed it trying to figure out the source. I have placed cloths on top of the spare tire thinking that the foam pieces were rubbing on the trunk cover.
I have a 2012 Subaru WRX wagon/hatch with now 14,178 miles. I am the original owner. I baby this car. Car is stock with exception of short throw shifter from dealer. Car was purchased new.
0:06, 0:09, 0:16 is when you hear the sounds.
Sorry for the quality, it's more for the sounds.
I don't want to bring it in the dealer if it is something I can fix and if it is an easy fix. It a few hours from the dealer.
Thanks in advance.
