During cold start vehicle makes loud metal on metal sound persistent for several minutes. Sound is similar to older diesel engine with rattling and rough sounds. In the uk dealers have been responsive to the issue replacing the chain tensioner and now in some cases the engine. Dealers in the us deny the issue and provide no remedy calling the sound normal. Issue is causing undue engine wear.
