Default Engine/transmission noise

We really like our new 2014 OB 2.5i Premium auto tranny. It just passed the 1000-mile mark. The only negative is the noisy engine/transmission. It's not mechanically noisy like tick tick or bang bang. I think it's more like a hydraulic noise like maybe from the tranny? Anyone have an insight as to where the noise originates??

It'll soon be due for its 3,000 mile/3-month oil change. I'll ask about that and the spongy brakes.
Our babies:
2014 Subaru Outback Premium (Ice Silver metallic)
2012 Ford Mustang V6 Premium black on black and blacked out.
2000 Ford Focus SE (ZTEC engine)
1993 Ford Ranger 4x4

Live like there ain't no death!!

CVT transmissions have a sound similar to what you describe, at speeds below about 40mph.
