Does anyone else think the idle sound of the GV is excessively loud and not very refined?

No, I don’t find that with my 3.5.

Yes!
My 3.5 with the AC on sounds like a jet taking off. I have found it unusually loud for the vehicle. But on the outside. No noise issue when sitting in it.
It’s definitely the cooling system fan and/or condenser fans running at full speed.
It’s VERY noisey when walking by car when it’s running.

I had to take our GV in when it hit -40 celsius. We park outside and the **** thing doesn't come with a block heater and no option to get one at purchase either. The idle was loud and somewhat rough. they threw it in the shop overnight though and the next day it was fine. It definitely doesn't like the cold. Other than that, yes... the air ventilation system seems to make some odd noises inside the cab. We didn't know where the noise was coming from until we turned off the fan.

I have a 2.5 and mine makes a racket when idling...to me it sounds like a diesel engine.....Frankly it sounds like a cheap old car....I had a VW Atlas 2018.....One time I came back to it 15 mins after I parked it, and the engine was running....It was SUPER QUIET...It may be a fan...or could be fuel injectors...but whatever the cause, its very dissappointing...But inside the cabin, its super quiet.

My 3.5TT is very quiet at idle at least during the winter months. Possibly during the summer if it has an electric auxiliary engine cooling fan it might be noisier when it kicks in but that's just speculation as I picked it up in December. I'll have to wait during the summer months to see if it gets noisier if it even has an auxiliary cooling fan.

Mine too. Turn the AC off and it goes away. Turn it back on and it comes back.
I'm in Vermont, so I haven't used AC yet....Its noisiest at initial start....after driving awhile the noise does dissipate-just not totally-but its not the racket I hear when I start it.
