Loud rattling noise at start: manual 2012 Countryman S All4

Postby rav » Thu Oct 04, 2012 10:38 am

I have a brand new manual Countryman S All4. It has less than 4000km on it now and has been used less than 3 months. In the very first week of owning the car I noticed a very loud rattling noise (it surprises any passers by) at cold start. Noise goes away after a couple of minutes. The noise also subsides the moment I put the car in reverse gear (normally, when I start the car in the morning, I am trying to back out of my driveway). Took it back to the dealer. Was told it is normal and that there is an internal memo on it. Is it normal? To me and all those who have commented on it, it seems quite abnormal. I must admit to being somewhat embarrassed with the noise after all the oohs and aahs from my friends who see the car for the first time. I have not heard it in other Countrymans either. Could it be related to the clutch at all? Any comments will be appreciated. I have been having a series of issues with the car from the word go and am worried now.
