Hi all. I've had my Yaris Hybrid for just under a month now, nearly 700 miles. I've just started to notice what I can only describe as a low squeal noise when I'm driving between 5-10mph and 15-20mph. I don't think it's done this before, as a first time car owner I'm noticing every little thing almost immediately (pride and joy and all that).
The sound will only appear when I'm accelerating through those speeds, not when I take my foot off and never appears again once I go above 20mph. It does sound like a moving noise if that makes sense, kind of like when an old car has a bad fan belt but this is much much quieter. My passenger couldn't even hear it.
Anybody have any thoughts?
Just wondering if anyone else has experience the same issue as me. I have a 2010 Yaris, fab condition. The passenger front door will not open from the outside or inside, no damage done to it at all. Toyota have said that even though they admit to it being a mechanical defect, it is out of warranty and also not a recall issue. Im just wondering if this has happened to anyone else? As i found their customer service to be quite rude and unhelpful, and obviously I plan to take it further but will help if I had some facts and stats behind me.
kind regards and thanks to all for reading,
