Hi Danny, hi Ken,
Thanks so much for checking in on my question. I really appreciate it. Finally, I was able to record a video of the sound. I've attached it for you here. Apologies for the delay.
Firstly, in response to Ken's question, while I can't definitively say if it's coming from the engine brakes, it certainly sounds like it's coming from the front of the car.
Just a couple of additional findings: I've discovered that when I keep the engine in neutral and start revving the engine, there is no out-of-place sound at all. Also, the sound doesn't seem to be initiated by my pressing down on the gas, but rather by the overall speed of the car. To clarify what I mean, I may be on the highway driving downhill and not pressing on the gas, but since my car is still accelerating due to gravity/momentum, the sound will get louder. As stated earlier, the sound amplifies with speed. Whether I'm driving with the A/C on/off and on Eco-friendly or not makes no difference.
If you can share any additional thoughts here, I would really appreciate it. Thank you guys!
