I'm guessing its not a problem as my old VX did this and my grandpa's Astra (jn Germany) also does it. Come to think of it a lot of Holdens I've sat in do it.

When I drive my Caprice, I hear a "Veeer" sound when driving the car.

For educational purposes; I'm just curious as to what this sound could be?

I think you are talking about when u are cruising at like 90 with the windows up and accelerate slowly? That is the gearbox that you can hear over the engine i think.

No, when driving forwards. Hard to explain... how do you describe a sound....

Sounds like something spinning maybe. Like I said, most Holdens I've been in have the sound. I'm just curious not worried.

More noticeable when accelerating slow... you can hear the sound windows closed. Happens when driving at any speed as I recall. I'll listen next time if it changes when gears change.

Won't hear it when you change gears :) engine revving too high. Should mainly happen in 4th gear. You can hear it the best when no other noise is around. Late at night etc.

I know the sound ur talking about. I heard it the other day when a VT was driving by, probably about 60km/h or so. It seems that all of them do it, but some are worse than others. Always wondered what it was also!
