I tried to record mine today.. with no luck.. The high pitch I hear is not super loud, just annoying and intermittent. Definitely related to braking or battery regeneration, although I hear it at speed sometimes too.. When I'm stopped if I let off and on the brakes a bit it comes and goes while doing that.. Wasn't there the first several days, so it's a bummer that I have it now.. Just hope it will go away.. but i'm not so sure it will..
I just got my CT a few weeks ago, and I've just started hearing (I think) the same noise recently. I know I didn't hear it for the first week or two, but have recently started noticing it.

I am attaching a recording I took with my iPhone, where I am slowing pressing the brake over and over. I know it sounds like I am pounding the break pretty hard, but I think that's just because I was holding the phone down near the pedal.

Is this what you guys are hearing when you brake the vehicle? It happens to me every single time I apply any pressure to the brake, regardless of whether I am in drive or park, or moving or stopped.

Other than this one issue though, I love the CT! I am hoping it is something Lexus can/will address.

I wondered where my pet screech owl got off too. Could you please send him back to me.

I hear it in my car all the time!!! No one else riding with me seems to notice, maybe because the music is on or not inspecting every sound. When I took it into Lexus they claimed they don't hear anything abnormal.... o_0

Yes that is similar to what I hear also. Your sounds very loud at least in the recording. I just would like to know "EXACTLY" what is causing it. Lexus couldn't tell me. I eventually did record mine on a video. It is the most annoying thing about the CT for me anyway. Some people do not hear in some of these high pitched ranges so well, so I guess it doesn't bother them...

I wonder if some of our CTs are making that noise slightly more than others.. That's why I'd like to know what is causing it...

You can really hear it driving down the road with cars and buildings at each side and the windows open. It seems to bounce back in to the car from outside.
