I have been hearing an intermittent high pitched squeal at 50 MPH and higher. Taking my foot off the gas or taking it out of gear doesn't change the noise. Hitting a bump or tapping the brakes makes it stop momentarily. It sounds like it is coming from the front driver side, though it's hard to tell.

I have about 33,000 miles on the car. My manual says that the brake pad replacement indicator should squeal when the brakes are applied.

Any words of wisdom?

I would check the brakes. May be time for new pads. If one pad is loose or rattling, then that could cause your symptoms. If you do a brake job, make sure to lubricate all the sliding parts to prevent binding and continued squealing.
