    Loud Road Noise - 2004 SRX V8 AWD

    Well we purchased this wonderful vehicle - 2004 Cadillac SRX AWD V8 Certified Pre-Owned. It has been a great vehicle for my wife, and she drives regularly. In the past month, we have noticed that it seemed to have a loud roaring noise, as you start driving and picking up speed, it starts a roar - almost like a plane taking off. The faster you go, the louder it gets.
    We needed new tires anyway, so I replaced all four, think that it would make it go away, and it did not. Taking to the dealer tomorrow, but was just wondering if anyone else had this problem... and what was it?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi,
    it looks like a wheel bearing going bad...nothing to be worried about. Very common and not very expensive.

    Maybe psalm was driving around an airport runway, put two and two together, and then was too embarassed to share his discovery.

    Yes definitely sounds like wheel bearing, especially if the sound pitch varies with vehicle speed. It is tricky to tell left from right, but it's generally easy to fix.

    I once had a girl in my mechanics class say her idle went up when she stepped one the gas.
