    Mine is more of a "buzzing" type resonant vibration. Like something is a little loose. Is that what we're all experiencing? Only seems to do it when accelerating from a stop at about "middle" throttle. It's like this one point in the powerband where it does it... any "place" above or below that and it doesn't do it. Make any sense?

    I get the 3 cylinder “growl” at certain rpms but I actually wish it was a little louder.

    I'm getting exactly this since dealership "adjusted" it.
    Buzz is easily heard outside the car as well.
    Making a sharp left from a stop makes heads turn. I'm actually embarrassed to drive this car around the city.
    Will weld for beer.

    Dealership checked out my buzz/rattle issue today.
    I'll share their diagnosis and resolution.
    They told me it was the serpentine belt..
    Tech adjusted the belt and so far the buzz has abated.
