I've personally had the car into the dealer three times; I had the shop team leader drive the car, had the service manager ride with me, and of course the noise disappears with the additional weight of another person in the front passenger seat. They claim to either not recognize the noise, or that whatever they do hear is normal.
Mine is in at my dealer now for this issue, among many others. Of course, I could not get my suspension to perform on demand either. Thankfully, my transmission did not let me down. It was more than happy to perform!

I expect them to tell me that everything is fine and that they have found nothing as well…. and when they do, I am going to schedule it in again for the same thing. It is obvious that there is a widespread suspension issue and it needs to be addressed and corrected. Trying to sweep it under the rug is not going to work.
