I have a 2011 with around 1,100 miles on it and noticed a strange sound this morning...although I would have to have been deaf to miss it.
I started the car and everything was normal, however, by the time I got to the end of my driveway the car started to make a noise. I am having a hard time thinking of a way to describe the noise. Almost as if it was metal spinning against metal. It was a constant noise, no breaks, and I could control the volume of it by speeding up or slowing down. It progressively got louder from 1k rpm to about 3k and then tapered off after that. I sounded as though it was coming from my glove box, and I even opened it up to see if it would get louder...it didn't. After about a minute or so of driving, it stopped and everything was normal. I took the car out at lunch, and there was no sound.
Yesterday was the first time I drove it in the rain, so I was thinking perhaps it had something to do with that, but that is a complete shot in the dark.
I am at a loss. Has anyone ever experienced anything like this?
