Buzzes when you let off the throttle at around 3000-4000 RPM
Just bought the car, I never took the car to be inspected before purchasing it. I realized this buzzing, humming vibration noise first day after I bought the car. Took it to many places to be looked at and everyone had a different story. Its been a month and I still haven't found anyone I trust or believe knows from experience what the heck this issue is. Just from my research and reading great articles like this I would imagine its one of three things, transaxle, clutch, or transmission. Anyway annoying noise hope its not going to do more damage and hope I can find someone reputable that knows what there doing.
