Noise at motorway speed

Post by Dalek Supreme » Mon Dec 03, 2018 8:25 am

Hi everyone.

I’m not sure if this is a fault and would welcome feedback. I have a D240 AWD Auto bought
to replace our 6 year old Evoke.

It’s been good so far, and my wife and I fight over who is going to drive it. :D

It is very quiet... but when driven fast... obviously at the speed limit here in Australia of 110 KPH... and not let’s say 135 KPH as that would be illegal... there is a whining noise from the engine compartment from about 100KPH upwards... this may well be normal. It’s not loud but because the car is so quiet, it’s noticeable. It changes pitch with the speed. At lower speeds it’s not noticeable.

Anyone else here hear it? Is it normal? I will ask the dealer about it soon.

Apologies if no one else noticed it and now that’s all they can hear when they drive...

Hi,
I have the P250 and that is also noisy at motorway speed, I think it's from the tyres or transmition somewhere? I am getting used to it now, but it seems to have a lot of road noise, not like my Disco, that was much quiter .

Thanks appreciate the answer! I’m not alone! Would be surprised if it was tyres as it sounds more like a fan or something but the transmission is a good suggestion.

Yes it is quiet though all round... my wife was driving and I deliberately took out a pin and dropped it next to the gear stick as we drove into Sydney.

Yep we could hear it... it’s a bit 21c problem and maybe it will wear in?

Hi Again,
By the way what tyres do you have on ? and how many miles/kilomiters, Give it time to run in and the go back to the dealer if it's not better.

I have a P250 and have never thought it noisy at Motorway speed. Maybe it’s relative to what you had before but for me, it really is a quiet cruiser.

To be honest that’s part of the issue. It’s so quiet!

I think it is the transmission. It’s not loud, the car is just so quiet this noise cuts through... really it’s 1st world problems.
