Default Engine Noise

I have a 2008 XC70. As the engine hits 1000 RPM (+/- 100 RPM) I get a low airy whistle. Local dealer techs hear but cannot identify. Said they heard same on two XC70's new on lot. It is a new sound to them. Area Volvo Rep feels it is a "nature of the beast". Any ideas?

Ist release of a new model, i made that mistake with my Volvo,
Many issues will arise with the 1st release of any new model car always..
You are covered by warranty just drive it..
You have now logged the issue with Volvo just keep and eye on it and see what happens..
My friend purchased a new s60 and it had an idle that had to be heard to be believed,
he went to Volvo was told it was normal...that was two years issues with the car.

I'm sure if the problem hits anyone else we will see it here.
I would just enjoy the beautiful car you have...and be assured that your warrenty will cover any drama's

good luck
