VEHICLE NOISE AT 30MPH
2001 Oldsmobile Aurora • 6 cylinder FWD Automatic • 160,000 miles
I have a 2001 Oldsmobile Aurora V6. I am concerned with a noise only audibly noticeable when I hit 30mph, it can best be described as a low, rough hum. As I increase with speed the noise becomes faster and less rough but still audible. I think that it might be the final drive, as it doesn't sound as if it is coming from the tires. However I am not sure about either of those.

Suspect bad wheel bearing(s)
