Ticking sound on downhill deceleration
I'm new to Subaru ownership and just purchased a certified-used 2018
Forester. I've noticed a ticking-like sound that only seems to be present
when going downhill at 40+ MPH. It seems to be more noticeable when
going downhill on a turn, as well. I only notice it when my foot is NOT on the
gas, when I'm coasting. It then seems to present afterwards even on
smaller/slower downhill stretches.
Is this a quirk of Subaru or Forester or something I should take more
seriously and have checked out? I should mention we still have some time
on our warranty.
This one’s tricky, as it could be anything between dirt on a rotor, a brake pad wear clip, or even a bad CVT! Can you isolate noise location or describe more carefully?
My 2015 Forester does not do this at all. Something is wrong so make this your dealers problem.
