Hello,

I newly purchased a black JX a week ago.

When I do cold start the car in the morning, I can hear whining noise from the engine for about 10 to 20 seconds.

The noise is somewhat audible when I am in the car.

Is this normal?

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?

Could it be the electric power steering? I asked the dealer about the constant suddle whining noise and they said its that. Not sure if we're talking about the same thing though.
