Hi All,

I have had my 2011 MCS for a couple of months and love it but have noticed a strange kind of droning/whirring noise at between 40-45 mph, it goes as you increase speed but then seems to come back again at around 60 mph then disappears again as you go quicker - it is more noticeable on smoother road surfaces, I guess because there is less road noise. The car feels fine with no noticeable vibration etc, does anyone have any ideas what this could be?

Cheers

James

Hi Jordan,

I have been thinking about doing just that but as the car was bought from a main dealer I feel they should really sort it out, the problem is getting them to diagnose it! I mentioned it a couple of weeks after picking the car up as it had to go in to have a stone chip sorted out, one of their guys took it for a spin up the road and said he couldn't see/hear anything wrong with it...

Yeah chuck it in to the dealers. Keep pushing till they sort it, or take them out in it

Just got back from my local tyre shop after swapping fronts to rear to see if it made any difference and found that one of the front wheels is bent - moving it to rear hasn't got rid of the noise but I wonder if the impact could have damaged something else that is now causing this droning noise - will have to see what dealer says  Rolling Eyes
