Car novice here so sorry in advance.
I have a '98 Saturn SL2(?) and it’s loud. My dad bought it for me at an auction 2 years ago and I haven’t had any major problems with the car minus the loudness. The only thing that’s been replaced is the radiator but the car was loud before that. And by “loud” I mean that the engine runs pretty loud. One of my older brothers told me before that my car sounds like a tank. It does get quieter as I drive the car more but still overall pretty loud. Also, my car vibrates sometimes- varying from a small vibrating noise to vibrations strong enough to vibrate my rear view mirror.
Now I haven’t had any major problems with the car (as I mentioned before) and I’m wondering if I’m just used to my parents having quiet cars and the loudness is no big deal. I might need this car for a fairly long drive soon and hope that maybe my car is just meant to be louder than most. Any ideas will help!
