In January 2016, I noticed that there was roaring type of noise that began on the underside of the car. I had to purchase two new tires which were put on the front of the car in February 2016. Since the tires have been put on, the noise has gotten louder and I can feel the vibration of the noise in the gas pedal, but it only makes the sound when the car is moving. The car performs fine and there are no other issues. I have gone back to where I purchased the tires to see if they can find out what the noise is. They could not find anything.
Thanks for your help.

Drive in a cirlcle one way then another see if noise increases if it does then if you are driving in a rh circle check left hand wheel bearing. Same for other side.

Hi LISA699,

If the noise does not seem to make a difference when the car is turning I have heard of transmission problems with these cars being the main carrier bearings going out. Please drive the car at about 45 mph in a straight line, then slip the car into neutral and see if the noise changes and get back to us.

Best, Ken
