Hi All
Been having a bit of back and forth with VW Dealer & VW Customer relations on this one,
My car has the usually raspy rattly sounds and rattle on start up

But whats really annoying me is a whining/whistling noise over 60mph, ive heard this is from the transmission and have driven aprox 3 other ups which make similar noises but less volume..

Just wanted to guage others thoughts on this , Am i being picky or does it sound like an issue, the noise is audible until aprox 1/3-1/2 volume on the stereo (i have soundpack too)

From 1 min on in video its more noticable

Thanks in advance for any advice guys.

Is this a design floor as such or an overlook from VW to make them this way? Just seems odd, Ive been told several times its due to it being 3 cylinder etc but that's rubbish, we have 2 citroen c1's and neither make any of the rattles and noises the up does, I'm suprised VW have gotten it so wrong?

accept that we drive cheap little city cars, and as such there will be a more than a few quality feel and noise issues.

Thats what I originally thought but this is a 13k+ new car

Im concerned it will become a problem outside of warranty
Im sure this issue is more noticable in the high up due to different hearing to the 60bhp models

Are you sure it's not coming from the passenger side when you go to fast into a bend ??

Hi regarding you're noises on the motorway etc you only get what you pay for
it's just a small three pot job.what do you expect.i myself don't get noise like you are
saying mine is not bad but I would expect some sort of noises for the price.also
expensive cars still have their share of problems.but the basic price of the up is
only about £6000 plus vat so that's not expensive for sutch a lovely car don't you think
I would just turn your music up and enjoy your pride and joy
