    2012-2016 Official Specs, Features, Etc. (Gen 4)

It's going on 4 years now and has a small battery but the dealer claimed it tested ok. I was thinking of just replacing it. I've heard...
  5. Buzzing sound right before starter starts cranking.

    Maintenance and Service
    When I turn the key to crank the engine, I get a buzzing sound, right before the key gets to the point where the starter engages. Could it be the starter relay making this buzzing sound? Is this a known problem? Any advice would be helpful, before I dive into trying to fix this abnormal buzz.
