    04 OBW 6cyl Auto. When starting from a red light or stop sign, and making a
    left turn or right turn (the steering wheel is already cranked left or
    right), I hear a sound for about 1/2 second coming from the left (or right)
    rear. It sounds like a sort of slight rumbling sound, and you can feel a
    very slight vibration in conjunction with the sound. Almost as if there were
    noisy snow tires on the car. You wouldn't hear the sound (or be aware of the
    vibration) if the radio is on.

    I am hoping this is normal Subaru behavior (this is my first Subaru or any
    AWD car). I am guessing it has to do with the AWD figuring out what is going
    on and what to do.

    Check the air pressure in your tires. This sounds as the AWD slippage
    that occurs when one tire is low on air. Whenever I hear and feel the
    noise, I know how to get rid of the problem.

    Good luck!
