Daniel here, Melbourne based new member! Have arrived with a high recommendation from a friend who is a member on here also. Here for the long haul!
In recent times, I have taken ownership of a 2010 2.0L Impreza, 4AET with full documented service history. At the moment, it has 115,000klms (70~k miles). The only slight issue I have now is mentioned below - which I am hoping to clarify and have rectified.
To very briefly explain it - at around 60-65kmh, with the foot on the gas. As soon as I let go of the gas and the car coast/decelerate, a noise not too dissimilar to a higher pitched sound "weeeeeeeeeeeeeeee" is heard. It is not obnoxiously loud, but is noticeable - a higher pitched noise - and as the car slows, the noise also winds down until around 10-15kmh, where it clears.
The noise is NOT present on acceleration - literally only with the foot off the gas/decelerating from the above speeds. Not heard at idle either.
As I mentioned above, the car has a full documented service history - the timing chain/tensioner was serviced by a Subi dealer at the 95,000klm mark, a year and a half ago. Transmission was also serviced in the last 10,000ks.
Being relatively mechanically minded (but not a pro by any standards) - it sounds like some sort of bearing noise, which I have read a little that it "may" be. Hence, I am asking this question of trying to eliminate the guesswork - if anyone does have any pointers or advice, I would greatly appreciate it.
Cheers - D

A video if you can of the noise in the area of the driver would be great. please don't do a Blair witch project and try to follow the noise, just have the phone set up in the general area of the noise and record the noise as it happens.
