    Not yet, I am still working on it. The dealer that put my motor in half assed it. I finally got my exhaust setup correctly and got rid of the vibrations.

    Call me crazy but I own an 18’ and when I took delivery of my 19’R Monday it did sound more quiet. The clutch even felt a little stiffer. My 18 now has 100 miles for reference

    The clutch in the '19 should feel different. There was a change in the clutch mechanism in the '19s. If it felt the same as your '18 then there would be a problem.

    Which dealer did you go to? I saw you're in San Antonio and I'm always trying to figure out which one is the least bad....feel free to PM if you don't want to blast them.

    Where do they disconnect the suspension when they drop the engine? I have a new front end clunk when I hit the brakes at low speed, I can feel it in the floor of the car.

    Jordan Ford. Every other fix was pretty good but I have had nothing but issues with the car I bought from them.

    Thanks for the info - that is actually where I bought my car. So far, the only work done at a dealer has been the oil line recall, but it is helpful to hear feedback in case I ever need to take it in. I haven't found any dealerships in the area that give me a good vibe (service, parts sales, etc.).

    There should be a rubber service plug there . Usually you will get a noise at cruise speed if it is missing .
