Mine does it going forward and coming to a stop or slowly accelerating. I thought it was from the tire since it goes with the speed of the car and that is what it sounded like, but now that I listen closer I am thinking trans. I can replicate when cold or hot - but you can't notice it on the highway, it is only at a slow speeds that I notice it.

GM called the dealer after they looked at the car the first time. They wanted it in the air again to check if the drive shaft tab (label) was spinning and hitting something making the click. It wasn't. The mechanic is recommending a field service engineer get involved.

Car runs great, just this noise...keep you posted.

I have the same noise under the exact circumstances. I am tempted to take it to the dealership but I'm afraid I won't be able to duplicate it there. It sounds to me like a bicycle with a card stuck in the spokes and clicks when it goes around. I have found about a dozen posts with the same issue. My vin is 10335.

I had the exact same thing. Turned out that a part of the heat shield was rubbing against the drive shaft. I hope this is all it is with yours. Easy fix.

I notice a GRINDING noise every once in a while when backing up. It SEEMS to be coming from the left front of the car. I can't tell if it's brakes or transmission.

Unfortunately, it only happens every once in a while (mostly when I'm not really paying attention or ready for it) so I can't narrow it down.

Car runs fine though and no other REAL problems...

I dunno.

I'll be taking her in on Monday and report back...

I have this same problem, it's not like the clicking noise that everyone else is describing. It seems like my brakes, but i'm not sure. What I can say is that the people at my dealer are dumbasses and would not have a clue if I asked them. Anyone got any ideas?

Mechanic at the dealer played with the heatshield on mine as well. Appeared to not help since the noise was present after I left the dealership.

However, next day and one full week after this--no more clicking. I gotta think this was my issue as well.

I thought the same thing. I could have sworn it was the rotors grinding or something. Sounded like it was in the wheels and only did it when I was backing up. Turned out it was only the heat shield issue.

I may have this issue.
Today I started my car and put it in Reverse. Before I even started backing up I heard a weird noise (a rattle/transmission type noise that worried me). I backed up and put the car in D then back to R and no noise? When I got home I parked in the driveway and put it back in R and no noise.

But I have a feeling after my car sits for a long time and I start it and put in in R, I'm going to get a rattle type noise. It could definately be a heat shield.

could just be your calipers especially if car has been sitting for some time. Once you break the grab on the rotor during the first few feet of fore or aft, it is good to go for rest of the day.

Have the same issue here! Thought I was the only one. Nothing noticable on level ground in reverse but backing down drive way "click.click.click". Have the GM rep in next week at work, going to make him listen to it. If I can replicate it

I can shift from park, to neutral, and back and it doesn't make the noise.
I have a 2/SS with the automatic transmission.
I don't seem to have any transmission shifting or overheating problems.
I'm taking it to the dealer tomorrow to have the stripe put on, and he's going to check it out for me.
Has anyone had this problem, or may know what could be causing this?
I talked to another member with a 2/SS auto, and they don't have the sound, so it's definitely a normal noise.

Thanks.
Same noise here as well, faint clicking noise when reversing the car out of my driveway. It is definately in the rear and will increase in frequency proportionate to speed. It seems consistent with a CV joint noise. I did a visual inspection and see nothing wrong with the boots and there doesn't appear to be anything rubbing on the shafts.
I am going to monitor it to see if it gets worse before i take it in.

BTW, mine is an M6

I also took mine in to the dealer and he also told me that the heat shield was rubbing the drive shaft. I would suggest those who have the noise get it fixed mine showed up pretty early and just got worse. They said it was an easy adjustment.
