anyway i hope you get things sorted and enjoy the car when you get it back
Didn't really notice the hesitation when I was test driving it, you don't really notice it unless you are cruising in like a 20 mph school zone. Didn't hear the rattle till much later, there is a 'sweet' spot that you have to get the engine at to have it make the noise. It has 46k on it. The hesitation has been eliminated, they said that the one injector going bad (had to replace all 6 due to the newer injectors) in combination with the carbon build up was the reason. Seems pretty common on these cars.
