I was wondering about those sounds (vacuume) myself. Thanks for the clarification, and I, too, have the metallic grey passion with the black tridion cell.

How many feet of snow did you guys get back there? We were there in 93 when they had a big blizzard had about a foot and a half then, we lived up on Braddock Mt, in the old Toll house. The kids had a blast sliding down the Bamboo that was weighted down by all the snow, it usually stood about 20ft tall.
We've had quite a bit of snow here in Kansas, and Ruby T has been getting around in it like a champ.

Hey Shannon, thanks for the welcome and for the "heads up" on the signature sounds of my new smartie. The thumping sound did alarm me somewhat and found nothing in the owners manual about this sound. But I did read in a thread that this was normal for the car as the ABS system goes through a resetting of sorts. I also knew about the auto door lock feature but I had no idea what that initial vacuum sound was that I hear after the car thanks again.

Now that you have had your car for a while, how do you like it? I like its uniqueness, economy and just flat out fun I have while driving it.

Hi Shannon, how are you liking your car by now? We used to live in Frederick for about 8 yrs, left there in '94. We were back there in August visiting some friends. Hope you're enjoying your car, know we sure do, made the trip back from Kansas a lot more fun this time.
