Hello lads and lasses,
Picked it up Saturday. Base model, hatchback, spark silver.
Having a couple of issues:
1. There's a roaring sort of noise from engine when started from cold. It goes away after a few seconds or immediately if I tap the gas pedal. Is this normal?
2. I'm getting a lot of vibration from the brakes. I thought it was surface rust on the rotors, but it's not getting any better. I spoke with the service manager at the dealership. He said they would probably resurface the rotors. This does not make me happy - I paid $25K for a new car, and do not want half worn rotors already! Any ideas on how to deal with this?
Apart from this, I'm very happy with the car. That 3rd gear acceleration is just awesome!
