    I noticed tonight when the car is running and you are standing outside of it, there is a slight (very hard to hear) high pitched whining sound.

    I'm just test driving this car, so I'm not sure if this is a normal sound or not. It's very very faint.

    Belt noise? Air being drawn into the intake?

    Honestly, most whining I hear on this site originates at the drivers seat.

    The faint whining noise I hear outside my Explorer is my wife, because she wants to drive it :)

    Mine has this sound so it must be an undocumented feature.
