DynamicS yeah the Lexus models are quiet, but they lack that German Soul.

mhunter Interesting you guys mentioned that tapping noise. I took my 2007 C350 into the dealer for a puttering, or sputtering noise that i hear at right rear end of the car. It sounds horrible, like my Benz put put car. The dealer said it was that purge valve ,what you guys were talking about. He said it should shut off. I said mine never shuts off, or the noise never goes away. Then he said mine was a lot quieter than the older models. I'm thinking, this is why Lexus has the commercials based on how 'quiet " there cars run.

Does anyone else hear a sput, sput , or put put noise on right rear end of the car?

Adullessence Reading these posts sure is scary. Lucky for me I have a close friend who's a certified MB mechanic. He does most of my repairs at his home since he retired. Guys got a better garage than the dealership. Got another close friend working at BMW who'll be working on a 3 series i'm picking up later this week. I'm not a rich man, but I do ok. Still, if I couldn't spoil these cars, I wouldn't want one.

It sounds like a dampened rubber metalic clicking.
I been hearing it too!
