I drive a great deal. I am a Uber driver. For the last month I have been hearing a whining sound horn like sound when I am accelerating from a stop position. I drive approximately six to eight hours five days a week as an Uber driver. I get this sound about three to seven times during the day. I have taken vehicle into two different Hyundai dealerships and they drive the car but cannot hear the noise. Then they advised that checked the engine and compartments as well as the steering column but cannot find anything wrong.
Do you
have the same problem?

Hi, UBER!

It sounds like you have a serpentine belt that needs to be replaced because it has started to glaze over. Here is a guide and a diagram to help you fix the car:

Thank you 2CARPROS Ken,
I am not mechanically inclined so I will visit the dealership one more time and ask them to examine the serpentine belt to see if it has started to glaze over. As I said earlier my vehicle is a 2017 Hyundai Sonata with approximately 26,000 miles on it. If the belt is found to need replacement I hope it falls under warranty as I read that most serpentine belts last about 50,000 miles before replacement is needed. Thank you again and I will let you know the results sometime next week.
