Hello Folks,

Does anyone have more information on what is causing the Engine Rattle/Grinding Noise on warm starts? I've seen many videos and forum posts about this issue but nobody has a good answer as to what is causing this. This is for the 1.5 Turbo/CVT.

I have a Hatchback Sport Touring on order, so I want to research this seemingly common issue before my car shows up at the dealer.

Thanks for any input!

Bobby

Hi,

My 1.5 T does it occasionally[like maybe once in five times] n usually only when starting from cold.. so its kinda hard to replicate to the Service Technicians..

Thanks dirtrun,

So do you feel it is a normal characteristic, or a defect? What is your guess of what it is?

I personally haven't had this happen on my EXT.Infact my car runs extremely smooth and can hardly tell it's even running at a warm start up.

I watched a video on this and the sound in the video is definitely the starter staying engaged a bit too long. I am guessing it's push start, which I don't have in my 1.5T 6M.

At the moment,

I am living with it.. there is still no proper fix [ locally, here - they have identified a 'module' tingy, but there are cases of recurrence even after the change of the part, so.. ]

Its looking like the first year Hatchbacks are experiencing some gremlins.There is another Hatchback thread where there is some electrical issues involving the rear wiper and car start up issues.
