Hi. This comes up quite often on this vehicle. When the rear hub bearing fails, it will start from a small rumbling noise and over time can start to make a loud roaring noise. This bearing is replaced as an assembly with the hub. In order to verify if this is the problem, a mechanic would get the vehicle in the air and spin the wheel and listen for the noise. If the noise cannot be easily heard, then they take the brakes apart to isolate the hub to see if it spins smoothly and without any noise. In some cases, an unevenly worn tire will cause a similar noise so the tire should be inspected. If you need further assistance, I recommend you have a mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, inspect your vehicle's noise and replace any failing parts.
