    A good question. If it doesn't, it would point to the i-Activ AWD and related tuning as the culprit, right? I wonder if anyone out there with a FWD 2nd gen CX-9 has noticed anything?

    All we have so far is a lot of talking. If one is so concerned with the performance of the car, they should test the car to see if it exhibits the behaviour and record it for posterity.

    Ahh I see, yeah I know which piece you're talking about. I've been toying with the idea of blacking that piece out. The rear does look a tiny bit cleaner without it.

    Yeah that does seem like a different sound. I don't think it would be related to the dashcam, though. Anchorman suggested that it could be the serpentine belt in the other thread, maybe that's what...

    Fact! One of the biggest reasons I bought my Lexus IS250 vs. a C250/300 or a 3-series is because of the reliability factor. High repair/maintenance costs scared me away.
