When I had a problem with my Ford, they couldn't fix it.
When I had a problem with my Buick, they wouldn't fix it.
Never had a problem with a Toyota because I never had the desire to purchase one.
Never have a had problem with my JGC.

I envy you!!

I guess it goes to show how every case is different. I like many things about this car, but the problems I have had with it so far....the only one they have been able to fix is replacing the valve body in the transmission, and I had to wait 5 months for that as they didn't have the part. (this was because the tranny was sputtering and jerking badly, with less than 2,000 miles on it)

Everything else....they tell me it's normal.
Car clicks at below 5mph....normal.
Car clicks in the glove compartment area when I release the windshield washer fluid and when I lock and unlock the doors...normal.
Roof rattles and buzzes over slightest bumps...normal.
Rear passenger side door rattles and buzzes constantly....normal.

Update: I brought it in to a THIRD dealership yesterday, and after months and months of attempts...it's finally fixed!! (well....sort of; the noise is still there, but it's so faint now, that I can deal with this)

It was the transfer case actuator. They had to replace it as they said it was defective. I had to wait there until 10pm, but I guess I'm lucky to have gone to a dealership that actually stays open that late.

So thanks to the other forum members that believed my problem, and to the members that thought I'm making something out of nothing: this is proof that maybe you don't have to always accept what you're told. I'm happy I kept trying, after MUCH aggravation and months of being told it's "normal", I finally got it taken care of. Even though it still has a faint noise, it's truly much better than what it was before.

Now if I can just get that rattle/buzzing in the roof fixed...

Well.....lucky me...it's now a month after getting it "fixed", and the noise is back, just as loud as before, and with a higher occurrence than before. Uggghhh

Yeah, mine clicks all the time while driving at low speeds. My '04 GC made all sorts of weird noises coming from the trans. I just tune it out (which is probably slowly killing my brain).

I think dcorn described it. My JGC has clicking sound that tends to be correlated with a gear change but sometimes even when its not changing gears and just idling in D with the brake on. It not super loud (can only hear it where the windows are down and radio/fans off) but do believe its the solenoid pack clicking. You might be able to reproduce the click sound simply by going to D,N or R. The older solenoid packs (non-ZF transmissions) made like trickling sounds (like when you go through a deck off playing cars...or something like that) at every gear change and clicking sounds.

The ABS makes a clicking noise sometimes when braking or calibrating. Thats normal.

I just got lost in thought. It was unfamiliar territory;
