On my '05 Impala I keep hearing a low pitched droning noise when driving.
My dealer replaced the front wheel bearings a week ago, but the noise persists.
Am I jumping the gun in assuming it could be due to worn cv joints, or shaft bearings in the trans.
Or just out of balance wheels?
I am sort of thinking that the dealer doesnt want to eat the replacement costs by diagnosing/replacing them under warranty.
Do you
have the same problem?

Best way to check the CV is to drive on flat, dry surface with all windows unrolled, while driving make slow steady turns left and right and then more drastic turns, if you hear a clicking noise the cv's are bad.

If thats not it, it could be the wheels out of balance, road noise, trans problem to name a few.

The dealership has to fix it if its under warrenty, have them do it, thats what the warrenty is for.
