Does your 2018 with the A10 and 3:55 gearing sound like you have supercharger?

    Hi

    From day one I have whisteling sound coming from either the transmission or the diff.

    Is this common or will my car explode soon?

    No whine in idle for me. Loudest when pressing on, like most of the other posters reported in that thread.


    It's there to let manual drivers know you have the auto and give them time to select some gear or other that might match the auto (some hope!)

    Yes. I noticed this when I was pulling out of my garage this morning and thought I noticed it a few other times.

    Vehicle transmissions make noise? Really?

    Next you'll tell me blinker fluid isn't something I need to be checking.

    I am not sure what cars you have driven before but none of the ones I have driven previously has sounded similar to this, except for my friends car with a dogbox setup.

    I'll take the whine over the thunk the MT-82 made putting it into first at a light.

    Mine has this sound. Its how Ford got the extra 25HP for the 2018 model :D

    I have 9K on the car and zero issues with the transmission so far.

    Hundreds....

    Ever drive a Buick with a Dynaflow? Sounds like it's SC'd.

    Cars make noises. Transmissions make noises. Don't worry about a noise, you have a warranty.

    It's not the MT-82 - Mustangs with the Tremec box do the same thing. And the cars prior to 2015 with MT-82s and a SRA didn't make the sound. I think the noise comes from the IRS or driveshaft.

    Before you be so quick to judge, maybe you should understand the particular noise in question. If you aren't, please hold your comment and say nothing at all. The 2018's I've driven make a literal supercharger-esk gear whine noise at idle in gear. I didn't notice it while driving though.

    The thud? Uh, yeas, the S197 MT-82's do make that noise. The S550's 2015-2017 also make the same thud noise. The 2018 I drove did not make this noise, or the noise was reduced and I didn't notice it. The thud noise, IMO, was worse in the S197, though, because the SRA and all the stackup/windup in the drivetrain.

    I posted about this too a few days after I got my car. It sounds vaguely turbo DV like.

    I'm wondering if they actually engineered the sound to be heard like that. It's actually a pleasant sound.

    I didn't hear it once today. Rather upset, I was looking forward to the noise.

    Me too

    Just got my A10 GT last week. Yes, mine make a supercharger-like whining sound. As long as nothing's wrong, I dig it.

    So, does anyone with the standard 3.15 have the same whine?
