I haven't heard the sound you're describing with my '07 -- but I also haven't been driving it under the conditions you specified; I don't generally shift into neutral / hold the clutch in during downhill runs. Will try to remember to check the next time I've got it out, but that may be a while...

Typically, no front-wheel drive cars have a differential, per se; they rely on a transaxle, which combines the function of a transmission, drive axle, and differential.

A sports sedan disguised as an SUV...
