No particular date codes. The noise is usually heard at light cruise, maybe 45-50 mph, with the trans in ERS "5". This disables MDS and allows full converter clutch lockup (the noise only happens in full lockup). The noise has been described as sounding like a Frisbee sliding across concrete, which is as accurate a description as I've seen. If you don't hear such a noise, then you're OK. If you can hear it, then you need to decide whether it's enough of a problem (annoying enough) to justify getting the converter replaced. This is only a noise issue (not a durability problem), so if it doesn't bother you, it's OK to just leave it alone.
