My 2009 Pat whines when I first start it up. The sound is reminiscent of a bad transmission that accelerates too hard. It eventually slows down and the sound goes away after a few minutes, but I can hear a similar, faint whine when driving on occasion. When the car slows down, you can hear a "slow down" whine until it idles. It's been doing this for some time now. All around it drives well, doesn't skip gears, and never drives at a high RPM. Am I just tripping?
