New to cars in general but wanted to ask, is it normal for the CHR to make a wind up noise when putting the car in drive and reverse? The car also makes a winding down noise when put in park. This could be normal but wanted to be sure.
Yeah it's the electronic parking brake, it spooked me too at first . At first though, I was thinking that this noise was generated by the electric motor as my CHR is 2.0 petrol hybrid version. That gave me comfort until once I realized that the car wasn't started and that sound was still clearly heard. That gave me some panic as I got the car brand new from the dealership. I thought it was a factory defect and that they would replace my car with a new one. The idea of this happening I didn't like as I would have had to wait. So, I contacted a friend from Scrap My Car In Edinburgh For the Best who is also a mechanic and he sorted it all out for me.
