I'm hearing the same (or similar) noise. Whining sound for brief periods, normally goes away when it gets warmed up. Very sporatic - doesn't do it all the time. Can hear it more when window is down. I took it to dealer, but of course it didn't make the noise when the Service Manager took it for a drive.
Anyone else experiencing this noise? Have any of you had any success finding the root cause and having it fixed?
I'm still having this whining squeal sound when I first start out, for about the first quarter mile. Not real loud, but annoying. Sounds like maybe a bearing or a fan belt squeal. Interesting, if I stop the car for a few minutes (e.g. to run into a store), the noise reappears for the first quarter mile even though the engine and the mechanicals are still hot.
Have any of you had this problem?
