Hi all, I just joined CarTalk and this is my first post.
I got a new 2019 Ford Escape on Tuesday. I love pretty much everything about it, except that when the heater runs it produces a high-pitched whistling noise. The harder the heater is working the higher the pitch of the whistle. It’s very annoying and interferes with quiet rides, conversation, and listening to low- or medium-volume music. I recorded a sample of it today and posted it as an unlisted YT video so you could hear it:
Does anyone have experience with this issue and/or know what could be causing it? It seems strange that this would be happening in a brand new vehicle with about 40 miles on it.
