Hi, I drive the 2015 manual. I have noticed that if I am doing about 35mph and feel like I can shift to 6th gear, when I do I hear whining sound from the transmission while maintaining speed. I hear it at that speed the easiest because the road noise is not to great to cover it.

Does anyone of you experience the same?
What do you think it is?

Thanks guys.

I haven't heard any whining since I got divorced.

But seriously, folks...

Is this a new thing or has it been going on since the car was new?

More Treble & Base should cover that up...<:))

1) Go to the Dealer, and test drive a NEW SOUL to see if it Makes the Noise... If NOT, you need to talk to the Service Manager...
2) Get back to us with your findings... OK

I don't notice it on mine.

That is pretty low speed to be in 6th. Does it make that noise in 5th gear at 35mpg?

Hi, good tip Soul.Master.007.

The car is new to me, I got it at 12k miles.
I think it does it on 5th also more noticeable on 6th. It sounds like a much much faint reversing sound.

Next time I am down by the dealership I'll ask.

Thanks everyone...
