Jake : Hi there
Jake : this certainly does not sound normal
Jake : does it whine all the time or only on acceleration?
It starts on acceleration and then just seems to stay there.
Jake : Thank you
Jake : Sounds to me like you may have a gearbox issue
Jake : The CVT transmissions are known to produce a high pitched whine when they are going out
Jake : especially when accelerating or decelerating
Jake : So assuming you can't pin point a noise location while idling then it sounds to me like CVT gearbox whine
Ok great thank you, we are taking it back to the garage again this afternoon and I wanted to go armed with some information this time. Do you think it needs a new gear box then? Especially as it is not very old.
Jake : How many miles on it?
Just over 12k
Jake : Sorry for the delay
Jake : yes that's very low mileage
Jake : and the CVT IS WARRANTED FOR FIVE YEARS OR 60,000 MILE
Jake : certainly do not listen to their excuse that it is normal because a loud wine is certainly not normal
Thank you very much for all your help :)
Jake : Your welcome
Jake : if you need anything else just ask
Jake : if not, please leave me a kind rating
