No, the noise started about 6 months after I purchased the car.
So, the dealer replaced the lifter.
Then, the noise came back recently. So, at this point, the new vehicle warranty is expired but still have extended 6yr/100,000mile warranty.
replacement of the lifter was not the permanent solution. it was just a band-aid temporary solution.
of course there is a documentation about the lifter adjustment. Dealer is well aware of this problem.
Yeah, I think dealer is doing the right thing, but I'm just worried that what if replacement of the head does not solve the problem...
