Default 5 speed manual owners..Need some input

I have a 2015 5-spd that I have a concern with. Is it just mine? Or do others 5-spd's sound like an older VW Bug engine? I would almost say it's like a valve tick. But I never notice it when it starts, nor when idling. It's especially noticeable in 3rd, and when I come to stop/traffic. She's running fine though it seems

I really hate to have to trek to the dealer for nothing.

Thanks,
Keith

I have the 2014 and yes it does sound like a vw bug.You will realy notice it in 3rd and 4th gear when passing.
