Whale song backing up?

Mon Feb 19, 2018 12:18 pm

Hi all,
My new Kia Soul started making this low whining sound when I back up - it resembles a low-pitch whale song, hahaha, like at the beginning of this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=savCAd6RyPI
To be clear - this noise is different from the pedestrian warning sound that is on at low speed driving forward.
I've had my Kia less than a month and don't remember it sounding like that in the first week or so. Is it worth taking it to the dealer for a check up?
