I recently purchased a 2011 premium WRX Sedan, and it is fantastic. I'm just about through my break in period (950 miles), and have been wondering something for quite awhile.
When I come to a complete stop (at a red light for example), and for whatever reason still have the clutch pressed in, I can hear a faint high pitched electrical whine. As soon as I shift to neutral and release the clutch the whine stops. It's not terribly loud, but is immediately noticeable to myself, and my wife in the passengers seat. I'm just wondering if that noise is normal, or if I should have the dealership take a look at it?
The noise does serve as a good reminder to shift to neutral when stopped for awhile, but it still concerns me a bit since I havent heard any other car do that before.
