Has anyone noticed any hick ups with the MO 2009 or later models?
For instance one day when I was driving back from biking with a friend we could hear this high pitch whistle noise coming from the engine, it sounded like when the AC kicks on and whatever happens in the engine starts up, and when you turn it off it shuts off. Well the whistle noise did the same thing startup, turn off, and the AC wasn't on, I could hear it over the radio at the time. Anyhow is stopped 5 minutes later and I have never heard it again.
I had one time when I took my MO to the dealer for oil change, they also changed the air filter at the same time and oil filter. This was in the summer, driving to my moms which is about 35km away on the highway in the passing lane, when I would mash the gas peddle into the floor the MO would just struggle to move, I had my brother take a look he took it for spin and even city driving the MO wouldn't hit high gear at all. After leaving the MO off for a couple of days the problem went away.
Changed brakes. I had my brakes done last summer, everything replaced. I started to notice that when I press firmly on the brake peddle and then release slightly the VDC would do nothing, normally I feel the brakes doing a gradual intense grip on the wheels...it wasn't until I turned off VDC and turned it back on did the breaks started to behave normally.
I find my 2009 doesn't run as well in the cold compared to warmer temps. So lately we have had -15 to -20c weather, even though I am parked underground its still -1c and I leave the engine warm up until the tack is between 1 and 1.1 before going, when I get out to the road it just feels like it doesn't really want to do anything. It rarely gets that cold here most winters.
If I think of anything else I will add it later.
