    Did you really mean 80,000 km on that '17?
    I thought I was high miling my '17 with a hair shy of half that.

    Yeah 80 thousand kms. Most of the cars here put on 6000kms a month. We have 1-17' with just over 100000kms, and about 6 with over 90000km. Warranty will be long gone by next year on a lot of them.

    Ichabod, I think you are right in your earlier posts about the design of the 17' exhaust being a factor to the exhaust rattle. The exhaust seems much more solid on the 15's I've seen lately. I checked out a few 17's having between 40-80k kms the other day and the rubber hanger just ahead of the rear wheel(2nd from the rear) is wearing out on the top/body part of the hanger. I wouldn't doubt it if those cars made the same noise and just nobody cared enough to mention it. I haven't driven them other than into the shop so I couldn't say for sure.

    Fummins..
    The entire exhaust shifts forward/backward dramatically on accelleration/deceleration on the '17 and up models due to the lack of a flex joint. This puts a persistent stretch load on the hangars so they will wear quickly.

    I been dealing with this awful noise also all winter long and it's getting worse. I thought it was the chrome tailpipe tip I added and I removed it today only to find the noise was still there. I am glad I re-read this thread. I will be fixing this issue soon like I fixed my power window.

    Mine is still rattle free so looks like a good fix.
    Funny you mention the chrome exhaust tip though as dealership took mine off claiming it was the cause. lol.
