Lexus IS 250 - Automatic - Whining noise


Recommended Posts


I bought a used Lexus 2009 with 39k only from  dealer. It was all ok until last week, I am hearing a bit of whining noise while acceleration and it is there until 2 gears, Mine is automatic and the initial sound looks higher when pressing the gas pedal and goes away once the gear gets changed.

I also checked when the car is in  parking mode and raised the acceleration, and it is normal. This sound was not there when i bought it initially and the sounds were all very smooth.


Maybe i am just noticing them since it was hot summer when i bought a month ago and the air condition and audio was always on. But i still feel the sound started .

I am not panicking as the sound looks ok and manageable, but wanted to ensure that there is nothing wrong with my car since the same sound was not there before.

If you bought it from a dealer a month ago, why not take it back for them to have a look at?

It should still be their responsibility if something is wrong, so there is no harm in trying.

I have a whining noise coming from the front passenger seat on my IS 250.

I sometimes leave her at home when it gets too much.

As above advice ^^^^^.
