My car is making a loud purring noise from the inside when I drive it. It gets louder the faster you go. The noise goes away when you make a right hand turn. I replaced all 4 tires today thinking that was the problem but it is still happening. What is wrong? I am thinking the berrings or the cv joint.
Do you
have the same problem?

It sounds like you have a bad wheel bearing. If it stops when you turn right, chances are it is the right front because in a turn, the vehicle's weight is transfered to the opposite side of the car. Thus, a right turn would add weight to the left and remove it from the right and the noise would lessen.

Let me know if you have other questions.
