Sputtering Noise

I'm getting a faint sputtering/knocking noise when I accelerate 5-10mph up slight inclines. It sounds like it's coming from the rear. Anyone noticed this? I don't see a TSB for this.

I haven't come across any specific language in the manual that talks about how the brake lights react when ACC is engaged. Would be nice to know if anyone has the facts on the GC's ACC system.

Re: Its official Saddle interior and new 730N RHR now available!!!

That's because pano roof is standard on all overlands. DVD is optional. I think the $465 credit means you are getting 430n.
