When I step on the gas my car makes a steady clicking noise. When I let off the gas and coast the clicking noise continues. When I stop the clicking noise stops. No warning lights have come on.

Hi,

Does it change when the brakes are applied? Also, does it seem louder when turning? Can you tell approximately where the noise comes from?

My first suspect is a bad CV joint, but the vehicle is really new. However, take a look through this link and let me know if it seems to mirror what you experience.

The link indicates you will notice it on turns. However, it can happen at any time, especially when it is an inner joint.

Let me know.

Joe
