    1.8 Liter Turbo
    I have noticed that when the fans come on due to heat or when I turn on the A/C the car shakes noticeably and I can also hear them running pretty hard. I can also smell a bit of Anti Freeze after parking the car after I have driven the car around town. I have never had a car do this so I...
