Unable to verify Goof in Avengers: Endgame

I submitted the following goof for Avengers: Endgame:


When IronMan arrives at the headquarters in his Audi E-Tron, you can hear the exhaust. An E-Tron is an electric car, not an ICE vehicle and therefore doesn't have an exhaust.
The response was:

Your contribution has been declined.We have been unable to verify your contribution. Unfortunately we were unable to accept your submission as we were unable to verify the information provided. 
I'm not sure why they can't verify it.  Google Audi E-Tron and you can easily find out it's an electric vehicle (a quick Google Search) and the point about electric vehicles is they have no exhaust.  ICE is Internal Combustion  Engine.  If there's no exhaust, he can't have his car revving and making a loud exhaust  noise.

How can I respond and somehow make the goof clearer to understand.  An electric car is silent (unless it has a pedestrian warning system which is usually a low volume "futuristic" whine at low speeds to tell pedestrians you are coming).

Thanks in advance.

Hi, Max Schafer. What is the 18-digit reference number of the submission in question? Also, for the sake of the informedness of IMDb non-staff, please disclose how you categorized the goof item. One more thing, the item should be reworded to be in passive voice present tense along with some other minor adjustments:
When Iron Man arrives at the headquarters in his Audi E-Tron, the sound of an exhaust system can be heard. An E-Tron is an electric car, not an ICE vehicle and therefore doesn't have an exhaust.
...or...
When Iron Man arrives at the headquarters in his Audi E-Tron, the visual coincides with the sound of an exhaust system. This does not make sense, as an E-Tron is an electric car, not an ICE vehicle and therefore doesn't have an exhaust.
...or...

Hi Max -

I have now approved the Goof and it should be listed live on the site shortly.  Cheers!
