As JimsFocus points out, you may want to check out some of the other threads where folks are discussing this issue. Additionally, I'm happy to escalate your case to your region's Customer Service Manager. Just reach out to me via PM with your VIN, mileage, dealer, and daytime phone number. I'm on the case!

Disturbing grinding as it sounds like damage is being done. It very occasionally occurs as well on left turns when transmission is under load accelerating...
