Why is my engine sound so loud and crappy?

20

Asked by Nov 30, 2012 at 03:03 AM about the 2013 Hyundai Sonata GLS

Question type: General

I thought maybe because it had 10 miles when i first got it, but 500 miles later i still can't get used to the sound.  it's
very noticeable when you first turn the car on, and i think the noise fades behind the sound of the road once you're
up to speed driving it.  It sounds like an old diesel car.  I wonder if this is for all the cars or just mine.

Might be an exhaust leak, or other porblem. Take it back into the dealer to have them inspect it for you.

i'm afraid they'll just say that it sounds like that normally. How can i tell if it has an exhaust leak??? does anybody have a 2013 sonata, and do you think it sounds a little loud to you, or is it nice and quiet???

I have a 2013 Sonata that I bought last September - the loudest card I have ever owned. I have taken it back and, of course, they say there is nothing wrong with it. The noise was not noticeable when I went for the test drive and I was not aware of it until I had it for over a month. I have done some research on line and found 2 possible answers. 1. Cheap tires or 2.not much insulation in the floor. I am upset because I should not have to buy new tires, but might have to because the noise is irritating to me especially on long drives.
