I'm a brand new owner, and I'm going through the car as I normally do when I buy a car and trying to figure everything out. I bought a 2011 MDX Advance from a private seller, an older lady who you could tell wasn't very knowledgeable but no big deal.

The HVAC system makes a medium-volume medium-pitch humming/whining noise as the fan speed increases. It happens on A/C and heat, and doesn't go away with time and starts immediately. I asked the previous owner on our test drive and she said it's always been that way. I have difficulty believing that, and I think something is wrong. It all works fine, it's just much noisier than any other car I've had before. I can post a video if needed, it's clearly audible, but hopefully I'm describing a somewhat common problem.

My second issue is the guidelines for the reverse camera. I thought they were tweaked a little, so I did a test to make sure. I've got "RaceDeck" tiles on my garage floor, so I parked the car in a perfectly straight line, using the tiles as my guide, and then I checked the guidelines, and sure enough, they kinda veer off to the left, not lining up with the s known straight lines in my garage. I bought a new Volvo back in 2011 and had the same issue, dealer fixed it, but this car is out of warranty, is there any way I can fix it myself. The camera appears to be in the housing correctly and aimed straight, but maybe it's not?

I'd appreciate any advice! Thanks!

With the camera on the MDX, keep in mind that it's mounter off-center, so that might contribute to the distortion you're seeing.
