I have not noticed the engine noise at 1600 miles yet, but I would welcome it being a little louder due to having an RS, but have noticed the breaks are very sensitive since delivery. It really takes a feather touch with them at low speeds, and I am getting used to it. I also find the accelerator pedal takes a feather touch when starting out. Getting that used to that too!i've noticed as I am putting the miles on, breaking it in, the engine noise is getting louder. anyone else notice?
another thing I noticed, when braking, coming to a stop, the blazer will slow to about 40-30kms, then it feels like the brakes lock up, it brakes harder all the sudden. great i am coming to stop, but shouldn't be so harsh.
