      Yes, my first '95 Solectria squealed a bit on heavy regen, but I never
      noticed a temperature variation. The second one is not as noticeable a
      squeal, but it has a kind of turboprop sound under power. It was quite
      apparent at first, but after a few hundred miles has faded out almost
      completely. I attributed it to the new gearbox breaking in. I never had
      both of the operational at the same time so I couldn't compare the sounds.

      The motor and gearbox for my second one are back at Solectria for new motor
      bearings. It was making a kind of rumble and after checking all the wheel
      bearings we decided it was the motor. Hopefully they will get it back to
      me soon.
