Thanks Steve,My Touring has 800 miles and couldn't be running smoother. It has been like this since day one.
I would have it checked out.
I had Azera and before a Benz, so in general had mostly sedans.What kind of vehicle did you have before? Could you have had a Prius with a tiny engine or mostly battery charged car?
I noticed my Passport sounds ‘beefier’ - if that’s the right word? My CRV was a 4 cylinder v-tec and the Passport is a 6 cylinder v-tec so it has much more umph that’s noticeable.
That's for sure;I would not consult with that "mechanic" anymore. His statement is a load of BS.
Try it in sport mode. The higher RPM's makes it give the satisfying vrrrooom sound you are searching for.Could it be with the new type aluminum hood, the engine noise is just more prominent now?
I've tried a couple times to step on it on the highway to get that cool, little engine sound I've seen on some Youtube vids reviews. Mine hasn't done that yet. Of course with just over 400 miles in 3 weeks, I'm not trying to over-rev the RPMS too much on this new engine. Maybe after a couple thousand or so miles, I'll really give it the beans to listen for that cool little engine roar(?) . ;?)
Car dealers mechanics' saying, "that's normal" reply is the most frustrating thing I can have them say. Or " it didn't do it for us:". Grrr....
So far, my Passport has been very smooth sailing. peace, e.
Yepper, was thinking that might do it. I've only kicked it into Sports mode once on the hiway the other day and just for a few seconds. Sure can feel the difference. I didn't gas it then cause I was heading to a gas station and didn't want to chance running her dry with a lead foot, LOL. And again, new engine, only 400+ miles, taking her easy for a few more miles.Try it in sport mode. The higher RPM's makes it give the satisfying vrrrooom sound you are searching for.
