Re: Melbourne SRT Club

Hi guys my name is Adeel and I have a 2014 SRT. I have started seeing loads of SRTs in recent months especially the 2014 update models.

I currently have a love/hate relationship with the car! The car is absolutely awesome (and I have been lucky enough to own a C63 AMG in the past so I know about fantastic V8s ) ...apart from the deceleration whine which is driving me CRAZY!!! I've posted about this in another thread but no knowledge from anyone so far (dealer is bloody useless).

Would love to meet up with other SRT owners to restore my faith before I go nuts and sell the car lol!

Anyone know which dealer in melbourne has the best SRT knowledge and service???

Thanks guys

I think it's the Nunawading dealership that recently opened which has a fantastic service manager?

Re: Melbourne SRT Club

So it looks like I'm the only SRT owner in Oz to have this firkin deceleration whine then...

Does not bode well for it to be fixed. I'll see what the dealer makes of it in a couple of weeks when it's booked in but it really will be a shame if I have to sell the car as a result.

I should have waited but I wanted to be one of the first with the 2014 update in Oz.

Re: Melbourne SRT Club

It will be a year of ownership for me next month, nothing but ear to ear smile driving. It must be pretty bad if your resorting to selling. I suggest you go to the dealer of choice, be kert and ask for the service manager, take him for a spin, if it's annoying you and is obviously that noticeable, he should pick up on it.

Tell him you want it fixed whatever it may be....no excuses, it's a 90k car and should not be making any weird whining sounds. How many ks do you have?.

Let us all know how you go.

Re: Melbourne SRT Club

It has around 8500km now. I tried to get it sorted when it had 1500km but due to the dealer never returning my calls I gave up stupidly hoping the noise will just go away! The actual drive of the car is unaffected. It's just too much now so as you say I'm not going to accept no for an answer. They have to fix it

Re: Melbourne SRT Club

Can you video how loud it is ?
You need to remember that any car with AWD and 470hp will have some driveline noises. If it is V8 supercar loud, this I think you should have a case, but you need to accept some level of noise in vehicle like this.

Re: Melbourne SRT Club

2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee "Mystery Noise" - YouTube

This isn't my car, it's just a video on YouTube that I found with the same problem. It's actually much louder in my car and once the car is warmed up it does it any time I am off the throttle at speeds above 40kph. It's totally noticeable to passengers. When anyone else is in the car I've resorted to being anti social and cranking up the stereo so it drowns out the noise.

There is no way the car is "meant" to be like this. Before this I had a C63 which has a very comparable engine and that just had good 'ol V8 roar no bloody whining.

It's just so annoying I'm now driving my old banger 14 year old Toyota Avalon instead whenever I can.

Sorry for sounding like a whinger but when you've spent the best part of $100k on a car it sorta makes you feel sick.
