Hi all,

I just bought a 2010 AWD Element EX. The gas pedal makes a whooshing sound when depressed with some amount of force. The sound emanates from below the glove box. I took it to the dealership the day after I bought it and the technician took me for a ride in another, identical element which made the same noise, so I guess it is just an element noise?

Anyone else experience this? Maybe something to do with the drive by wire throttle?

Hmmm, I never noticed it on mine. Have someone lay under the passenger side of the dash with it running and try to pin-point it better.

listen for it and see if its actually doing it when it shifts. Mine makes almost a blow off valve noise when it shifts under harder acceleration
