Question Sound beneath rear of vehicle

I tried a search and didn't find anything about this. My car had been parked in our garage for several hours. I entered the garage and I heard something like a soft humming/whirring sound coming from beneath the rear of the car. After about thirty seconds, it stopped. I'm not concerned, since I suspect something is happening by design. However, I am curious as to what it might be. Any thoughts?

Normal.

It's a purge of the EVAP system. I think it starts somewhere around 4 hours after the car has been shut down. I don't know about some other cars, but I think most Toyota products do the same thing.

Thanks for the feedback, Dave. Makes me wonder what else is quietly going on behind the scenes!

My HS used to make different sounds from the rear, like it was maintaining itself. I have traded it in on a 2013 ES300h that I had to special order to get all the options I want. I had the Tech package on my HS and wanted all the safety items it had on the new ES. Now I wait, they told me 3 to 4 months.
