i have complained for more than 2 years about excessive engine noise but got no meaningful response until 48000 miles when a service technician (not at a dealer) found that the resonator has a crack. calls to exhaust shops indicate that this is not a rare occurrence. one of the selling points of the car was the stainless exhaust system. seems that was a meaningless point for this model.*ak
