Just purchased a pre-owned 2002 Ford Focus LX sedan: 78,000 miles. Car seems to run brand new other than a roaring noise coming from the front while traveling down the road. The noise is not there when the car is stopped/idle/parked. It seems to get louder as I slow down and turn the wheels. Also there is an occasional squeak coming from the brakes when I come to a stop. Dealership seems to think it is the rotors or brake pads. But I've had others tell me I am possibly looking at a bad bearing. What do you think? Thanks.
the squeak may be coming from the front hub assemly (bearing) and the noise you described sound like a hub assembly, if you have someone do it the wheel has to come off anyway and the brakes can be checked then
