I've got a 2000 STS that I love dearly. It is my daily driver, but being 15 years old, it's getting a bit delicate.
Lately (past few months) I've noticed a ride issue that seems to directly correspond with the wheel speed. When rolling on a smoothe, level surface, it feels (& sounds) like I'm rolling on knobby, all-terrain tires. Beyond that, the car seems to be battling some rolling resistance. It's hard to quantify, but I can tell that something is impeding my car's ability to coast freely.
My tires are not a matching set, but they are the correct size, and I've been keeping the air pressure consistent.
I don't believe it's a transmission issue, because the fluid is clean, not "burnt," and the issue exists even when rolling in neutral.
It just feels like I'm riding on off-road tires. I'm a little puzzled. Due to budget constraints, I'm doing all I can to diagnose/repair as much as I can on my own.
Has anybody else out there experienced this issue? Any thoughts?
