2008 HYUNDAI ELANTRA SE

Hello all. I just have a quick question, and just want to know if the noise that I am hearing is normal or not.
I have a manual transmission. You know that rattle/chatter type noise
that you get when you're going in reverse if you have not let the clutch out enough to go fast enough in reverse? (Which I know is normal after having owned several manual trannys and all of them doing this). I am hearing this exact same noise while I am stopped at a stop light. It's a rumble/chatter/rattle type sound. Generally, while stopped at a light, stop sign, etc. I push the clutch in all the way and firmly apply the foot brake while in 1st gear. After sitting (stopped) for approximately 30 seconds, this is when I hear the noise. It's not real loud, but loud enough that I can hear it. When the light turns green and I take off, it completely stops when I let the clutch out to move until I have to stop and sit again. I also discovered that I hear the noise in my driveway if the car is in neutral with no foot on the brake and the clutch NOT pushed in. Again, it takes about 30 seconds of sitting motionless until I hear this noise. If I push the clutch in and shift to 1st gear and start to just roll, the noise goes completely away. Any ideas?

I'm not familiar with your initial description of the noise, so I'm not sure what you're hearing or how loud it is. It's a new car. Stop by the dealer and have an experienced tech take a listen.

Thanks for the FYI. I have heard that before, but just never think to do it. I will start doing that from now on. Also, regarding the above noise I was referring to.....I noticed that the car only does it after being driven for at least 1/2 hour or more. AND it does not do it all the time. Just occasionally. I am assuming that I have nothing to worry about as all cars make some kind of noise. This is a new car for me (never owned a Hyundai before), so it could be just the engine sound when idling. The factory bumper-to-bumper warranty is great; however, that 5 yr / 60,000 mile warranty is only going to last me approximately 2.75 years since I drive approximately 21000 miles per year. And I think the clutch components are only good for the first 12 mo / 12,000 miles. Other than that, I LOVE my car!
