Default What is the mechanical buzzing sound on my Honda Prelude?

Everytime I start my 2001 Honda Prelude, and drive about 10 feet, I feel something vibrate and buzz somewhere underneith towards the engine. I can feel it slightly come up the steering wheel. It is very mechanical and I dont think it is a bad thing nor do I think anything is wrong; I just want to know what it is.Any ideas?

I would imagine it's the ABS activating, or performing a self check. My '95 Civic would do that every time I started up and started to take off.

i own a 98 prelude, same generation as yours, its the ABS performing a self test every time you start the car. So yeah you don't have to worry about that buzzing! It's perfectly normal and not an issue.
