V6 noise

Hello everyone new member here. Just bought a WK2 Summit V6and I am noticing a slight rattle whenever I apply the gas. Wondering if this is normal for V6 pentastars. I can slightly hear it in the cabin and only makes noise when car is in gear.

Unhappy Re: V6 noise

Hi,

If yo mean that sound which feels like fan but a little harder, then yes. Its annoying sound specially when I have the window open. Coming from a much quieter Ford Explorer, owned them for 10 years, i feel really annoyed.

Re: V6 noise

I checked the videos on that thread and it doesnt sound anything like that. It almost sounds like the injector feeding the engine. I only hear it when windows are up. Its always made the noise even on test drive. Im hoping its normal. Thanks
