Do you have the TSB #. I'm taking mine in this morning. Had it for 5 days, 2nd time its been in for this. Ughhhhh. Glad I found this. Thanks!

I had the rattlers, and asked the service manager to see if they could put the GMPP mufflers on instead of the stock mufflers, cost me $60 extra and it fixed the rattle and I'm getting a little better low end torque and she just breathes easier throughout the RPM band, another bonus is that I'm now averaging 25.6 MPG !!!!!

Took my car to Chevy of Wilton, CT today to do a 50k service. Had this issue going on for over 20+30k miles. Another dealer which will go nameless said that it was normal etc. This sound was bad and consistent in 2000rpm range. Wilton found the TSB and after some discussions are goodwilling it for me since I fell just outside warranty mileage wise. I'm not one to ever give shout out to a dealer but I was very happy with how things were explained to me and was given options etc. So shoutout to Chevy of Wilton and if anyone from GM corporate is reading this... I dunno... they need a reward of some kind.

Has anyone had this problem on a 2011 model? I am hearing a noise under the car that sounds like a little fuel dump with a metal noise too. I don't know how better to discribe it. I have taken it to the dealership and they can not duplicate the noise...like going to the doctor and you feel better in the waiting room...

I called my dealer and they said, what?

Of course they have to see it to believe it. I have a 2010 model built before #50,000. I only have 22.3K on it and will be printing out the TSB and placing it in the passenger seat when I drop it off. That noise is a whole lot worse on the outside. It sounds like a chevette!!! Argh!

Brandon,

Ken Dixon Chevrolet, Waldorf, Md was very professional and stated that it would take up to 7 business days to get the parts. They had it back to me in 5 days, no charge and sounds like normal again. Thanks!

I'm about to do the same. Need to take mine back to the dealership to readdress an issue that wasn't initially resolved. Early model 2010 with 18k miles.

I think my car has this issue. I just picked it up last sunday, and noticed the noise. I thought it might be the plate frame rattling, but after reading all the posts this sounds like I might need to have it looked at :(

I apologize for the inconveniences you may be experiencing. It would definitely be best to get it diagnosed by the dealership.

Please let us know how the visit goes.
