Quite annoyed at this issue. Been to dealer for fix 4x so far and going in again. Have had 2 parts replaced and noise still occurs. Noise is like popping metal sound that seems to be coming from under hood and can be heard mostly after driving and car is shut off. Sounds within 1 min then will continue for as mush as 10 as I've heard it 10 mins after stopping and shutting the car off. Could be longer but likelihood of sitting in the car that long with engine off is rare. I can hear if idle at stop sign or drive thru where no actual road noise and engine is running. I can hear it when engine off.

I feel like I'm stuck with a POS Acura. Highly disappointed at the attention to detail and would hope that on my 5th visit it will actually be fixed and not an attempt to change a part and have me on my way only to come back again. Brand new car should never stress a person this way. Not a so called "luxury" brand. I could have gotten Kia and I'm sure be quite happy right now.
