Okay...breathe deep...it's the first night for me without my Volt warmly charging in the garage...things will be ok...
Ever since I've had my Volt (since February) when I come to a stop I hear a sort-of "popping" sound from the right side of the car. Some days it's louder, some days it's quieter. Of course you have to have the radio off to hear it. There are many days when I drive in silent mode and I want to just relax and enjoy the ride.
I've since discovered that if I creep down the street at 3-4 miles per hour I can hear the same sound. Moving above that speed and the popping goes away. So it doesn't seem like it's the brakes, or at least the application of them.
Anybody else experience a popping or creaking sound like this?
I know it's not a big deal but what the heck, if they're going to promise me silence then I want to be able to enjoy it! So we'll see what they come up with tomorrow. Fortuneately I was able to demonstrate it to the technician.
I also asked them to check if there are any software updates for the infotainment system. There are a handful of small bugs I've seen over the last few weeks.
