    Just wanted to see if anyone else had experienced this or if it's normal.

    The past couple of days, I've noticed a buzzing or vibrating feeling in the footwell and the steering wheel that is definitely related to the climate system (it goes away if I turn everything off). You can hear it audibly as a slight buzz as well. I don't notice it when driving, but it's very noticeable when just sitting in the car.

    I realize that the A/C has fans and moving parts and such, and that there's less noise than in an ICE vehicle, but I didn't notice this at all in the first week or so I had the car (and it was hotter then). Something worth talking to service about?
