MITSUBISHI ECLIPSE NOISE PROBLEM

2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse • 160,000 miles

I took my car in to get a tune up. Upon pick up I realized it was making a loud rumbling noise. Louder than my usual turbo engine sound. I noticed it got louder, between 35-45 mph. Once on the freeway about 60 mph it kind of goes away but when I slow down and begin to speed up again it comes back. Don't know how else to explain it other than consistent loud rumbling noise.

I'm worried because it didn't make that noise before the tune up.

Thanks, Lisa

Tune up is engine performance. Is that all you had serviced?

Could be a hub bearing on one of the wheels. Take it for a second opinion to a shop that can road test it for you to pin point the noise and tell you whether it is related to the previous repair.
