Q: Noise at back of car

asked by on

I am hearing a noise from the back of my car.

Unfortunately, without more information I am unable to come up with an accurate diagnosis without an in-person inspection. It’s unclear what the noise sounds like or whether it’s coming from the interior or exterior of the car. Some possibilities can be a noise from the muffler or a noise caused by physical damage. If you would like to have this issue checked, have a certified mechanic inspect the noise and determine what repairs are needed.
