Hi, I took delivery of a 2009 honda crv 2.0 automatic VTEC EX yesterday from a Honda Dealer
The car has done 73k miles has full honda history and comes with a 14 day money back promise and
1 year Honda warranty on major parts. It has just had a full service and MOT before being delivered
Due to lockdown in UK I didnt drive it before delivery but as I have the money back promise and warranty was not duly concerned, and I have had a Honda CRV before (2007)

The car drives beautifully and is very quiet when idle BUT when I accelerate there is a low noise like the
heater or air conditioning is on (when it isnt) and this is louder as you go through the gears.
Its not a deafening noise but its there and as soon as you slow down and stop at traffic lights its very quiet again.

I dont remember my previous Honda having this.

I have a mechanic checking the car over on Wednesday but as Honda 'specialists' I figure you would all know more
So my questions are 1) any ideas what it could be and 2) Is this something I should be worried about?
All help appreciated

...or possibly a loose heat shield on the manifold or exhaust?

Thank you for your replies, I spoke to my B'Fs husband today and he mentioned it could be the tyres??
The car has also had new brake pads and disks fitted to the front in the last week or two in the service it was given before it was sold and he also said it could be that as they are new and atm in the uk its below freezing so he suggested it might be adding to the noise
I took a video of the car when driving to send to my BF's husband and he is still sure it must be the pads/disks and tbh in the video the sound was slightly different to what I am hearing in the driver seat when driving.

I am not going to get my mechanic to look at the car on Wednesday without giving any leads or showing him any of the service history etc and see what he says.
I will report back
fully appreciate all responders thank you
