Mystery Noise in New Parked 2011 Subaru
Last night my husband went outside and was standing near our 2 month old 2011 Subaru Forester. We live in the country, so it is very quiet. He was standing behind the car and could hear a "running" sound. The night was cold and the car had not been driven for about 6 hours. The only way he can interpret it is to say "I'm not saying it is the fuel pump, but it sounds like it." He came into the house and got the keys and opened the door to see if he could see something on the dashboard that might give a clue, but there was nothing, and when locked the car up again the noise had stopped.
He called the dealership today. The mechanic he talked to was dismissive -- my husband even heard him turn to someone and say "I'm just going to play dumb on this one" and at one point he put down the phone without a word while my husband was explaining the issue. The mechanic asked my husband to start the car and see if it was okay. My husband said it was slightly sluggish starting.
This from one of the most respected (?) dealerships in the area.
Husband was told "call us if it happens again". We're hoping to find out more, and hoping the car doesn't catch fire in the meantime.
Any clues would be most gratefully received. Thanks.
