I've notice that my Evoque when cruising between 35mph-40mph with the foot off the pedal, than press the gas very slightly there is this humming noise coming from the rear of the car (very noticeable). You can also feel a slight vibration in the cabin when it does that (through the pedal and steering wheel also). Doesn't do it all the time though. My car is at the dealer since Friday for that and other things but just checking to see if anyone has had something similar.

TIA!

same thing with mine...seems like a loose heat shield on exhaust...I have yet to investigate this further...let me know what your dealer finds.

Got my car back this morning and the dealer techs couldn't find anything wrong. Of course on my way home, the humming noise occurred. Will continue to monitor it.

I think I get the same, could you please let me know what they did if anything to rectify this vibration. Thanks Bob

The noise is still there but I haven't had a chance to go back to the dealer. The last time I had the car at the dealer over night they couldn't find anything.

***UPDATE***

I stopped by the dealer this morning and had one of the techs hear it again. He knew right away what it was as he said all the PTI Evoques he's driven has the same vibration/humming noise coming from the transmission tunnel. He said it's most likely when the torque converter locks up is when the noise is occuring. He says there is nothing wrong with it although it's only the Evoque's he tested has this noise. He also mention maybe call or email Land Rover and let them know so hopefully there will be a fix. Again.....there is nothing wrong but it's still not right to have this vibration for a $50k-$60k+ vehicle. I'll probably call Land Rover and let them know. Possibly those who have this vibration/humming noise do the same so they will do something about it.

Thank GOD I ma not the only one. I thought I was going crazy and starting to knit-pick. I never noticed it before until yesterday when I was driving. Exact same thing at same speeds when I let off the gas then lightly get back on it. That humming and buzzing sound was getting me nervous. But I just thought it was the trans figuring out which gear to select, since it was kinda between speeds. But once you get on the trottle more and it changes gear it goes away quickly. never happens on the highway ever and I just got off the highway and it seemed to go away completely. I usually drive my cars hard and I generally speed so going 35 isn't gonna be happening much anymore. But if anyone else notices it please post and if Land Rover finds a Fix please do tell. Thanks Everyone!!!!! Thought I was losing my mind for a minute there???!!!??!??!!!?

Okay, I feel a bit silly, but which Evoques are the ones that are experiencing this issue? "PTI" stands for what? Which country are you writing from? I am curious if the North American versions (2.0L 4-cylinder 240hp) are having the issue.
Thanks.

From Chicago which means the Si4 engine auto tranny. PTI stands for dealer's pre test inspection for new vehicles once it arrives and before selling to the customers.

I've noticed it and I don't know the cause but I guessed that it was the vehicle trying to be fuel efficient at street speeds, idling down real low to the pont that when it shifts from the top of one gear to the bottom of another gear, it does so to run at very low rpms to save fuel, and then if you let off the gas just a little bit, instead of shifting back down it tries to run even slower rpms on the same gear which causes the loss in smoothness for that speed at that gear. That might not be what's really happening but it matches the speed and situation when the noise and rumbling is happening for others so we are probably experiencing the same symptoms. Someone could try driving in S (sport) mode to see if the less-efficient shift pattern avoids that from happening.

It seems all the evoques do it. I went back to the dealer and drove another brand new one and the same hum-vibration. I hope everyone emails rangerover about this issue and maybe they will find a resolution to the problem. Now that I know when it happens it seems I notice it a lot more. Keep me posted if anyone gets an answer.

I tried it in the S mode and it is a lot better. I think you are exactly right about the cause. I hope they can comu up with or load a new program into the car that will increase the rpm slightly to eliminate the rumble.

On my car....when the humming occured I quickly switched it to S mode and it was slightly better but the humming was still pretty noticeable. If you haven't complained, please do call your LR corporate whether it's LR USA or LR Canada. The more complaints, the better chance they will have a fix (hopefully).

I have had a rather severe, very annoying, hum and vibration between 37 and 43 mph for quite a while - since a couple thousand miles. I now have about 18,000 on my Evoque. It seems to be louder than I remember it being earlier in the life of my car, but that may just be my increased annoyance. The noise/vibration is not consistent - it will show up about 40% of the time, and usually persists on my journey once it starts. I took a drive from San Diego to Borrego Springs where much of the speed was in the vibration range and it showed up every time. I have had the car at the dealer on three separate occasions and, unfortunately, the dealer has been unable to replicate the symptoms. The last time I picked the car up from the dealer (at closing time) it exhibited the symptoms less than 10 miles down the road, and did so very day for about 5 days (again, this was over a holiday so the dealer was closed). Yet the vibration has not happened in the last two days. The vibration and noise is loud and obvious. I have been on the phone with friends that have heard it over the phone. I have to turn the radio up to hear clearly over the noise - thank goodness for the wattage. :) Is this the same issue?

I have tried to troubleshoot a bit and have noticed the following symptoms. The noise/vibration happens, and is the same frequency, regardless of gear (I have manually shifted gears to see if the frequency changes or does not show up - the result is no frequency change and it shows up in any gear at the same speed), The frequency is too high for an out of balance/out of round tire - it's more like a bad drive shaft - a loud, low frequency, hum/vibration (enough to rattle parts of the car); it persists regardless of load (both downhill and uphill), reaches a peak volume/amplitude at about 40mph, goes away beyond the 37-43 speed range. Some days it will not show up: the last two days have been vibration free while the previous 5 the vibration occurred every time. It occurs on the highway, uphill, downhill, smooth roads, bumpy roads, pretty much everywhere I am driving within the speed window - when it occurs. I have tried many different sources for gas - with no change; and it occurs 1/4 tank, mid tank; full tank of gas. The pleasure of the Evoque experience pretty much overrides all it's other shortcomings except for this. I don't think I can keep the car with this annoyance. The dealer says they cannot fix if it does not occur while they have the car - they drove it about 30 miles without occurrence. I've asked the dealer to have a mechanic take the car home and drive it until it occurs and it is fixed - I want it fixed that bad!! No dice. The dealer contacted Land Rover North America technicians and they say they never heard of this problem. I find it hard to believe I am alone with this issue.

Evoque 4 Door, "Prestque" 2.0L gas engine, Black Chrome Jaguar Kasuga wheels (Sweet!), roof rack with cross bars (I drive a motorcycle as well, I am not convinced wind pressure at 40MPH on a roof rack would cause the car to vibrate this severely).

I know it's been a few years since this post, but I'm having this exact problem with my 2016 Evoque. Dealer can verify problem, but can't figure out what it is. Did you ever get this figured out with LR?
