Sorry for the delay guys....haven't been paying attention where I left off. I took it to the dealer and, of course, the ticking practically stopped. There was a minor ticking sound when we got there and the mechanic stated that was normal. I haven't had any problems lately nor has the ticking sound gotten any worse so I'll hold for a while. I only have 500 miles thus far...maybe after the break in period it'll go away completely. Wishful thinking, I know but who am I to tell the head mechanic what's right and what's wrong. They should know. Good thing is that I wrote it all down in a journal...time, dates, names, etc...just in case.
