My 2014 SE with 49k miles started making a wailing sound that's loudest between 40 and 75 mph. I tried the swerving test to see if it was wheel a bearing, negative. Tire shop's opinion is that the noise is coming from the trans.

I'm going to the dealer tomorrow. Would someone please advise me on how to get the dealer to repair for the minimum cost? Like what to say and do so that I don't get worked over. My education is in mechanical engineering, so don't be afraid to get technical.

Does the sound go away if you are between 40 and 75 and put it in neutral. That might help to eliminate some possibilities.

As far as the dealer goes, just have them diagnose and tell you what is wrong and then you can decide how best to get it fixed.

It doesn’t go away in neutral. Makes a hell of a noise when I shift into L or R on the highway, though! JK!!
