I have a 2006 Saturn Vue. I recently got an oil change and my car seems to be running harder and louder when I drive. The problem begins when driving between 30mph - 35mph and then gets louder from there. What can the problem be?

Do you
have the same problem?

I would check the oil level first especially after just getting a oil change. Low oil level will effect pressure and not enough oil will make the engine louder.
