I have read all the post on here about the the re gen saw noise but cant find an answer to clarify my issue. Its not the loud noise you can hear from far away but can be heard when you are next to a curb or a wall where the sound reflects back. I can also hear it with the windows up when driving in L but only when stopping or re gen is active. I took it to the dealer a month ago and they compared my 2013 to their MY2012 and said it sounds the same. I guess I would like others to confirm that my "silent" electric car should sound embarrassing when driving up to people in a parking lot.

Is the noise "normal" or does the not so savvy Volt dealer not want to work on the car. FWIW all of the local dealers are this way down in south Alabama

Does it sound like my 2012 did recently? Stator Bearing was replaced

Does it sound like a 10" table saw winding down after it's powered off? It's a fairly loud winding down noise. People and dogs will stop and stare I am told.

Its not the really loud "its out!" noise but definitely noticeable. When in L its much more noticeable though.

Its a 2013 with 61k on odo. Also does it start out quiet and then get louder or just become very loud one day?

Joe67 video is the perfect example. If that's what it sounds like, you need it fixed. Should be covered under the 8/100 Voltec equipment warranty.
