When I say "feel" I mean along with the rubbing noise I can sense a mild vibration in the drivetrain that is clearly related to the noise.
Makes sense to me...but I have not read any posts that mention a vibration, just a noise.

Is this a common experience for those who have "the noise."

Thanks for the information.
Sounds like you need a fulid change to the one with more modifiers. I only experienced this after the 1,200 mile service - not sure why yours would start at this point.
