A few weeks ago I started hearing this whistling noise coming from the front end, potentially the front passenger side wheel area. I checked transmission fluid which was fine, just had the oil changed as well. Here's a short clip of the sound:

Have you ever figured out what it was? I have a similar but much less pronounced noise in my new Onyx.

OP only posted once and it was a 2005 model. Your "Onyx" won't be the same design.

If there is a whistle, that means air is moving through a small gap. Check the air filter box and resonator, especially if it changes with engine rpm and not necessarily road speed. Check for gaps around the headlights.

It could be anything.
