On a serious note any mechanical sound will be accompanied by some sort of vibrations. If you are really attuned to your car then you should be able to tell that there is something wrong with it just by feeling those vibrations.
bob, did i say i was talking abt the skoda? haha!

but really, even though one is fully in tune with his/her car , sometimes you cant hear/ feel slight vibrations. i am talking abt the minor ones which get masked such as squeaky trim , door pads, beadings , suspension bushes squeaks. etc.

Once a small kitten made its way into the bonnet of the car and lodged its head inside the hooter of the central locking system. In the morning, I pressed the unlock button on the remote and the chrip sound seemed a little muffled. So I locked it and the chirp was normal. Again, unlock and the chirp was muted.

Puzzled, I opened the bonnet and this lil fella was curled on the suspension strut and kept pushing his head into the hooter.

Pulled him out and returned him to his momma who was in my neighbors place before I drove off.
