I don't understand how some people can take their car into the dealership to complain about a rattle somewhere and then complain about the car being in the shop. I know one guy who took his car into the shop because he kept hearing a ticking noise and it turned out to be a stuck pebble in his tire.
While I couldn't hear much on some of those vids either, I take the oppsite opinion of you. I saw the vids of the S54's with a HOLE IN THE BLOCK from bad bearings!!!

Maybe you go through cars every 2-4 years, in which case you don't care. Some of us would like our cars to last a few years.
Now we find out a care built after 10/2008 has bad bearings too??? Wasn't the new bearing part numbers suppose to fix this issue?
And peopl complain about the car being in the shop because most are still making payments on the car but they are not driving the car because the manufacturer messed up. Is that unreasonable???
