      My dealer said my rear bushing will be replaced under warranty. I am at 50k. At first they said it wouldn't be covered and it's $1,016 to replace. :eek: I kindly asked if they would try to initiate...

      Oh man, that might be what is wrong with my car too. Did your clunk resemble this in anyway?

      I kept going back to that too. Do you know how to check if it's bad? I checked the torque on the bolt. It doesn't seem to move much, but I'm really just trying to move it with my hand so no real test...
    4. Drivetrain clunk / pop when engaging gear and shifting 1st - 2nd

      I have been reluctant to post another clunking thread because it's nearly impossible to accurately describe what is happening. But I have reached by breaking point and I wanted a few opinions before...

      Time to bring this thread back.

      I've been under the car a lot lately trying to find a clunk while engaging the clutch from a stop and low speed/low rpm on/off throttle. Sure enough this thing is...

      I was surprised by the wear on a stock motor. I didn't do it sooner because I have an extended powertrain warranty and my original plan was to sell it by now. Seems likes a poor excuse, but there was...

      49k miles - engine is stock

      First: The OE Pzeros are an awful tire. Noisy, poor in the snow, poor in the dry.

      Mine does this too but I can only notice it when coasting. It's very faint where I thought it would be the tires, but I am 90% sure it's in the Haldex/diff area. It doesn't change with winter tires...

      Key word is it *should* have been part of the 30k service.

      There are many reports of dealers claiming it's not covered (mine included), or dealers doing the change incorrectly.

      It's cheap and...

      Gen IV Haldex can account for different wheel speeds easily so there is no need to replace all tires. So unless the Gen V Haldex got worse it shouldn't matter from a Haldex point of view on spare...

      Car companies do it only for looks. The average buyer doesn't walk into a car dealership and go "I wonder if the unsprung mass is lower or higher with those optional 19's"....they instead think "OH...
