Whine at high rpm

at 5k plus in my auto awd cx3, i get a whine out of the passenger side front of the car.

I haven't opened the hood to determine what is spinning over there, and will this weekend. perhaps a belt is stretching and hitting a shield...again - need to check.

anyone else experience this?

At 5k plus, my diesel would explode but there are no clues in your profile to tell me which engine you have or whether your passenger side is on the left (where it should be ;-)) or the right. The Skyactive engines are not normally troublesome but slight whines are not untypical at high engine speed.

Something similar happened to me this morning as I was driving to work. It was more around 6000 RPM, and I heard this weird high pitched buzzing noise, kinda like when a fly keeps running into a window. It came from the passenger front side as well. I tried to duplicate it after I parked, but it seems like it only happens while driving. I'll see if I can duplicate it again while driving, if so, I'm taking it straight to Mazda.

I noticed that too, but undramatically, it was the overhead dome lights/sunglass holder buzzing from the vibrations at certain RPMs.

I notice a distinct whine when I start out on a very cold (below freezing) morning. It can still be heard after a minute or so of driving and then gradually disappears until the next cold startup. I don't believe it is there when the weather is warmer. It doesn't really bother me. I just have to remember the myriad of noises that I detected on my previous car (a 2009 Subaru Forester) during a cold start.
