Loan car different
« on: February 12, 2019, 10:37:25 AM »
Hi, just dropped off my 2011 cvt for a major service and collected a 17 reg cvtall bells and whistles loan jazz. Didn't worry about all the extra electric gizmos and built in sat nav but noticed that the engine etc. Is very noisy and road noise is intrusive, I take it they have reduced the soundproofing? Also noticed the transmission is jerky compared to mine, glad I haven't bought it, I'll be glad to get mine back. Are they all like this now or is it just this one?

It may just be a dog, hence the reason it is loaned out!

The one thing I noticed about my Mk3 is that the engine is a bit "tappety" in very cold weather just after start up. This wasn't an issue on either of my Mk2s.

The extra noise might be caused by the ECU revving the engine to get out of Atkinson cycle mode each time you want to accelerate. However, once the vehicle is up to speed the engine shouldn't be noticeably noisy.

Another possible factor if the vehicle is the EX is the bigger wheels and skinny tyres worsen the ride. This, and the tyre type, may also increase the road noise.
