Brought car in, dealer claims they cannot hear any noise (really?!). I hear it every morning I start the car - and the noise has been identified by others at the throw out bearing. Which is apparently not an uncommon issue with this car.

I also hear a metal on metal squeaking/rubbing noise from the suspension on bumpy/rough roads (it makes the noise while driving in the dealership lot - I heard it); yet they cannot seem to hear this noise either.

I asked them to keep it an additional day and listen for the clutch noise again this morning. I also told them I would take them for a ride and point out the suspension noise.

Very frustrating - as I do not have the best hearing, and can easily hear both of these noises - why the dealership cannot is beyond me. Mostly I feel like they just don't want to make any repairs under warranty.

Hopefully they call back today with better news.
