New 2013 E350 6cyl - engine ratlte / ticking

H all,

It seems I read about this in a magazine, about the updated 3.5L direct-injection engine making a lot of noise, like a ticking rattle sound. When the hood is up, it sure does. Inside the car you can't hear it (thank god!)

However, when standing outside the car while it is running (hood down), or when I pulled up to a drive-up bank and put down the window, I could really hear it outside the car. I don't care about it when the hood is down IF it is normal, but hearing it outside the car with the engine running worries me.

The dealer told me the sound is normal for this engine. But I can't but worry my brand new $62,000 car has a rattle that wil become annoying and sound like something is wrong.

Any input on this? Thanks much.....

I think this would be best asked on the 212 forum;
