My 2012 EX AWD is 3 weeks old and exhibiting some sort of "engine whine." This only seems to happen between 55 and 65 mph. Naturally I noticed it on our first highway trip. I feel almost certain that it is not tire related.
It's most noticeable using speed control set at 55 for fuel efficiency. It's not loud and I'm sure that some folks wouldn't even notice it (my wife did not) but I have sensitive hearing to high pitched sounds.I've notified the dealer and will take it in soon but other threads experiencing the same noise (all 2012 EX AWD) didn't seem to be getting much dealer satisfaction. I won't hold my breath on this.
Anyone out there hear about this phenomina?
