    Post Noise on Cruze 2013

    Hello everyone, I just bought a 2013 Cruze with an automatic transmission last month and since this weekend I started to notice a noise from 20-40 mph. I am pretty sure it comes from the back of the car, probably somewhere near the left rear wheel.
    I started listening carefully and sounds like when you roll slowly a ratchet tool.
    When I accelerate above 40 mph the sound disappears.

    I will take the car to my dealer to have them look at it, but this will be on friday and the noise is driving me crazy.

    Anyone else had this problem? Or any ideas what it might be?


    Thanks!

    Never heard of anything like this. Are you sure it isn't something in the car?

    Last year, we had a guy take his car in for a bonking noise that he heard every time he stepped on the brake, but it was only when he hit the brake a bit harder. It drove him crazy as none of us could figure it out. We suspected loose bolts on the calipers, braking issues, broken strut mounts, and so forth.

    The issue was that there was a water bottle in his back seat that would roll forward and hit the seat every time he would step on the brake.

    Ratcheting noise, thats a great way to describe my brake noise!

    As for your issue, check the tires. Might have a rock stuck in the tread. Had that happen to me before and it made a silly noise like you describe. Drove me nuts.

    Is it speed sensitive? Meaning if you go faster the noise is faster or is it consistent? Does the car act funny?

    While I can't identify the noise, I did just waste a bunch of time watching car vids

    This could be the plastic covering over the top of the rear shock they are somewhat loose to begin with.
