High pitch whining noise -p/s pump?

After 200km on my qx60,there is a high pitch "whining noise" started from the right hand side of the engine.The technician looked at it and said it's normal from the electric power steering's pump.Seriously Nissan !!
I was so pissed and very disappointed with the purchased. Since then,I came across 2 other new qx with the same issues. That is totally ridiculous from Nissan so called luxury infiniti?
Just want to know if other owners out there having same issues?

Can you hear it when the hood is shut inside the vehicle? Or outside, but when the hood is shut, not open? I have never noticed it on mine inside or outside, but mine is a hybrid, if that would even matter...

I've got close to 25,000 miles on my JX and have never heard that type of noise. Something isn't right. Sounds like you need another Infiniti technician to look at it.

I don't know what it sounds like in my car with the hood open, but I know when I complained about a high pitch sound in the car I was told it was the power steering pump! I have tuned it out now and don't really notice it anymore, but it is still there. I don't know if all QX60 or JX are affected by this.... I think the power steering pumps are faulty and depending on how faulty, the sound is louder for some.

I have 2500 miles on my QX now and I have stopped noticing this sound inside the car. Will see if I can tell what it sounds like with the hood open sometime this week.

That doesn't sound right - I've about 4000 miles on mine and the engine at idle is quiet, no high pitched whining.
Agree with BobOB - have another Infiniti tech take a listen or the master tech.

Ya, I can hear from inside the vehicle but not as loud. It is still very annoying.

I am from Toronto. I think the cold weather is affecting the power steering pump more than those from the warmer climate.
I complained bad enough to the service department that they agreed to order a replacement pump from Japan to be replaced next week. If not, they just told me;It is normal,it is normal,they all like that....

the power steering pump does usually make a whining noise but it shouldn't be so loud that you can hear it inside or outside with the hood closed.
