St. Louis Auto Dealership’s Car Talk: Auto Noise

Not all auto noises portend engine troubles. These days, manufacturers are going the extra mile to produce vehicles with powerful sounding engines. Some  new and used cars arrive off the assembly line, purring, growling and roaring like a  NASCAR race car. The concept behind the design is to enhance the driving experience.

Yet among car buyers and purists alike, the controversy of assimilated vehicle noise rages on.

According to sources at Edmunds.com the 2011 Chevrolet Camaro ILS renders the following decibels in the various modes:

  • Idle: 60.2Db
  • 70 mph Cruise: 74.0 Db
    70 with top open: Db
