    rear-end groaning

    Hi - has anyone else noticed a groaning sound from the rear as you slowly go over speed bumps/entrance ramps at slow speed? I heard of another porsche doing it in my area (Fairfield, CT). I took it in they installed some sort of felt material, just dampened it for one day, now the sound is back. It sounds awful, like metal straining. My fear is that it has loosened other fittings in the rear like window, etc. Not at all impressed - just 3k miles, 2007 turbo.

    Not sure if your car was affected, but there was a weld issue on some early cars that caused suspension noise. You might want to do a search and check it out.

    I guess I'm very unlucky, I inquired about this problem - my car doesn't seem to be affected by this particular problem (I am told). I'm rather frustrated - taking it back in this week. Thanks for the info.

    Re: rear-end groaning

    I have it on my 08 TT Cab with 500 miles. It has slowly developed since I took delivery. I had on my '04 TT Cab also but thought it was unique to the Cabs. I also have an awful squeak that's caused by the "clam shell" boot rubbing against the soft top (only happens with the top up). It has slowly developed/worsened since I took delivery. Again, it's the same problem I had on my '04 (figured Porsche would have fixed by now), but fortunately electrical tape on the leading edge of the boot seems to be the fix (at least it was on the '04).
