I have a 2000 Ford Explorer XLT, 59000 miles. I bought this car a couple of years ago used with 36000 miles. During the test drive the salesman pointed out that there were new tires and therefore the "road noise". The "noise" has continued to get louder and recently, while considering to trade it in on something else, the dealer mechanic commented on the "unknown" noise in the front end while test driving it. Now, we are concerned since it is obviously not "road noise". There is no shimmy or bumping, just rotational noise insink with the speed of the tires and it gets a lot louder if you are using 4 wheel drive. We need to go on a long trip and now I am concerned about the "worthiness" of the vehicle. Any ideas?
have the same problem?
