I know this has probably been discussed but I can't find the thread. Has anyone heard a growling noise when running around 1900 to 2100 rpms. I have the 1.4 turbo. Obviously the dealer can't find anything wrong with it has anyone had any luck with this issue?

growling as the engine sounds sporty? Or something terrible? Could you post up a sound clip? I like the growl from my 1.4T

Mine makes a noise between that RPM range to but I wouldn't call it a growl. Sounds more like forced air rushing through a hollow can.... It may be the turbo I hear but not sure. I had a 2011 with the same engine and it didn't make that sound.

the best way to describe the sound is when you get a rug caught in your vacuum cleaner. Not a pleasant noise. It gets really old when you go on a longer trip at 55mph. I wouldn't have a clue how to post a sound clip of it.

nrq484,
I would recommend that you have your dealer look into this for you. I would also like you to keep me posted on the progress of your concern. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me anytime.
Thank you,

I took the advice in ZPE's link he sent and it is the fuel lines. I took some rags and wrapped them behind the fuel lines and the noise stopped. i told my service dept. what I found and that they need to check into this but they don't seem to thrilled about it. I have an appointment tomorrow so we'll see what they actually do about it.

Any update on this?
