2014 Acura MDX AWD: Odd Whirring Noise

March 18, 2014

2014 Acura MDX AWD

During my recent drive to Mammoth Mountain and back, I noticed an occasional and odd electric-motor whirring noise coming from our 2014 Acura MDX.

Since it was sporadic, it was hard to pinpoint why it was happening or where exactly it was coming from. It would come on randomly, then turn back off.

It's definitely coming from somewhere up front, possibly the dash area. Sometimes it sounded like the ABS system trying to work, but I was never braking when it occurred.

At this point, I don't have much else to report. It's a fairly faint sound, so editors who drive with the stereo on the whole time might never hear it.

Maybe we can get some of the editors to turn down the radio to give this a proper further investigation.
