Hello, thank you for writing in. The noises need to be narrowed down further before we can give a decent diagnosis. To begin, does the vehicle make noise whenever the car is on, on just when it is moving. If makes noise as long as it is on, or if it is related to engine speed, then the issue may be exhaust or engine related. If you hear the noises when you are driving and specifically when you go over bumps or at a high speed, then your issue is tire, wheel, or suspension related. A quick test for the suspension is called the bounce test. Go to each fender above the tire and bounce the vehicle up and down. If it bounces more than two times, then you have a suspension issue. If you do not, focus in on your wheels, and more specifically the wheel bearings. Only further inspection will tell. For more diagnostic help, contact our service department to schedule an appointment.
