does it have a belt driven fan? they can be noisey


It's a 2012 - take it back to the dealer and ask them - it's under warranty.


What version is it the 28i or the 35i? Yes do take it into the dealer they can tell you if something is wrong or not.

Transmission belly-achin'? or is it definately the engine?


If someone put a V6 in there youll have all sorts of problems. Return to the dealer and have them re-install the inline 6 engine
