Q: Car making a dragging noise

asked by on

The car is making a dragging noise when I drive and when I press the brakes. It doesn't sound like my front brakes though.

You may have a brake issue or a wheel bearing issue. Either of them may cause a dragging noise. Attest drive and visual inspection will narrow down what is causing your issue. I would not recommend driving the vehicle. A qualified technician, such as one from YourMechanic, can assist you in diagnosis and repair.
