Default Finally Resolved Noise Issue

For several months I've been dealing with an issue in which a loud rattling noise (like marbles) would come from the tranny area under certain conditions. It was hard to reproduce for the dealer because it would only happen under moderate load in 5th and 6th. It would always be more prominent with a passenger on board.

On the 3rd time to service, I printed out a sheet with the exact directions on what to do to reproduce the sound. FINALLY they were able to reproduce it. It turned out to be the shock spring rattling. Cure...put more preload on the suspension. The only reason they found it was another Vegas owner had the excact same complaint a few months before and the tech remembered it.

SO glad this is resolved. It was very loud and driving me crazy that the dealer said there was nothing wrong.
