Transmission whine is "normal"?
A few months after driving my new 2013 Crosstrek, I noticed a subtle whine right at 60mph. The pitch stays the same, but the volume comes and goes depending on the RPMs, etc. It's not loud, but it's obvious enough.
I just took the car to the Subaru dealer for 30k service and I told them about the whine. After the service they said it is a normal transmission whine. I've never had it in any other car. (FWIW, 60 mph is a speed I often drive. But during the break-in period, I made sure to vary the speed and never stay at the same speed for very long.) Is this normal for this car?
Edit: mine is an automatic transmission.
