My G5 GT 07 has this weird noise I dont know what it is... Its been there almost since I bought the car, I noticed it when my car had like 1200miles/2000km, and I havent been able to take it to the dealer yet.

Noise: http://www.freewebs.com/caifanz/sound.mpg

No matter how long I drive the noise is there, it could be a 5minute or an hour drive.
Do you have the same noise on your G5s??
do you have any idea what could it be?

yah it does... But I only hear it when I stop at red lights..
Hard to tell where it comes from, but I think its from the rear

Last day I heard a G5 GT 06 with the same noise, but it wasnt that louder as mine, and the thicking was slower also


Basically its a thicking sound, and even after car is parked it takes like 5-10 minutes while the thicking decreases and finally stops

i thought it was the exhaust shrinking a little bit since it only happens after i shut my car off

obviously a mixed opinion here, but in a case like that, you best be taking it in to be checked out. Could be something expanding sure, but it shouldn't keep doing that all the time. I wouldn't consider that part 'normal'. either way better safe than sorry, you don't it to result in you getting stranded somewhere if you have already noticed potentially something wrong.

the dealer isn't gonna do anything for u most likely. Any car with stainless or aluminized exhaust make that sound. For some reason the G5's and cobalts are loudest. As soon as it heats up it makes that sound and until it cools, used to work in a dealer, hate the sound, gotta live with it
