Re: Snowquestration throwing problems at my WK2
We just got 12 inches of snow here yesterday also. Cold weather and snow cause strange noises. It helps that I park in a heated garage both at home and work. To answer your questions, all are likely normal noises and will go away when you thaw out.
I also have a Laredo X with the auto HVAC controls. I rarely use Auto mode, and keep it in manual/sync 99.9% of the time. This prevents the fan speed from changing, which drives me crazy.
A positive is that my GC is terrific in the snow and slush. Just have to remember that it takes longer to stop this big brick, and there are many idiots driving crappy cars with crappy tires and crappy winter driving skills. So I leave ample room.
Best luck and I am praying for Spring, sooner the better - I am sick of this winter.
