2020 Acadia SLT with Dual Sunroof. At cold temps, I hear a high pitch whistle at varying speeds. The colder it is, the lower speed the whistle occurs. Once the interior is warm, the whistle stops. At 25 degrees, the whistle sound happens around 32-33 mph. When I go faster or slower it stops. At different cold temps a different speed makes it whistle.
Any ideas??

Interesting. I have a sound more like a high pitch whir, or low pitch whistle... also only when it's very cold out. Goes away once warmed up also. I'll check the speed, pretty darn sure it's pretty much the same.
If we match all, this might help; I don't have a sunroof.

Curious about this also. I've had this on our other GM vehicle as well. But not recently.

It actually almost sounds like RFI thru the speakers (except lower pitch, frequency), partly as I can't tell where the sound is coming from.

We had one on our 2017 Limited. Only in really cold weather. Pitch of the whine/whistle changed with acceleration and seemed to only occur at speeds under 45. Once the vehicle warmed, the sound was gone. Had it into the dealership but they couldn't hear it and didn't have any ideas. But it seems to have disappeared. Happened maybe the first two winters we owned it, but haven't heard it since.

Cant upload recording.... file too big. I recorded the noise this morning... may be hard to hear, but it is louder in real life than it sounds. 17 degrees outside this morning.

We were right at freezing this morning, warming up even more this week. Today; no noise.

I've tried adjusting the stereo and turning it off... thought it could be a noise canceling issue. That didn't help.
Tried different drive mode, AWD, 2WD, etc. No change. On the bright side, not a transmission issue.

I've never experienced something like this with all the different cars I've owned. Any other ideas out there? Do a lot of people experience this?

i have the 2017 gmc acadia, front wheel drive. Mine also makes this whistling sound at a certain point with the throttle and at around 30-35 mph. Goes away if you step on the accelerator more or if you back off. Mine started about 7 months ago. Warm or cold weather.

A friend drove back from Vancouver a few weeks ago. One of the first things he spoke about was the irritating whistle... Toyota Highlander
