The turbo is pretty quiet. I don't think anybody has 8000 miles on their ST yet, so its hard to say if it gets louder. There are always ways to make the car louder of that's what you want. Either way, hope you enjoy the car. Welcome.
I just drove my fiesta st home last night, and outside of the tires sucking in the snow, I absolutely love it. In fact, I was on my way to my friends garage to apply sealant and wax after a nice washing and clay baring, and my car slid backwards down a hill because I had no traction. Luckily, a bank of snow slowed me down |
Anyways, I was curious if the car will get any louder once its broken in. I cant seem to hear the turbo at all! I know a mazda speed6 my buddy bought took about 8k miles before he could hear the turbo and blow off valve. Is that pretty standard? Ive never bought a new car before, so just hoping to get some opinions. Thanks!
I agree,How much you hear depends on the environment at the time and how good your hearing is.
Forty-five years of riding motorcycles and working in various factories has reduced the acuteness of my hearing and I don't think I've ever heard the turbo. I like the intake honk from the Symposer, but I would guess that the turbo whine might be bothersome if I could hear it.
