It wouldn't be a concern except that I have long commutes and hearing it the entire way everyday is like nails on a chalkboard.
Ill be heading to the car show to see what's Around.
I hear ya about the squeaky seat and dash rattles. God knows I have my share. Besides my oil drinking engine, these are my biggest gripes about the car. It makes the car sound and feel so cheap... like an early, mid 90's American econo-box. I should know, I've owned 3 of 'em until I smartened up.
Btw, I've had broken spring clips replaced in my seatback twice already in 9 months... if that's not cheap, I don't know what is.
