Q: Car roaring at 60 MPH.

asked by on January 06, 2016

When I drive the car at 60 MPH, it makes a roaring sound.

The noise you may be hearing is the rear axle bearings at high speeds. The vehicle should be checked by a qualified mechanic and the rear engine may need all the axle bearings replaced or the gears may need to be replaced depending on the noise heard by the mechanic.
