06 S40 w 150k miles. I noticed a few weeks ago there was a whining/vibration sound coming from under the car as I pass 40 MPH. Took it to the shop, they didnt notice anything---even when I rode with them and said "dont you hear that?" The answer was "ummm no". The offered to change out "the bearings" but were VERY insistent that this MIGHT NOT solve your problem. The tire pressures are good, the alignment is good. The only issue Ive had w the car in 8 years is the AC compressor, and that was fixed 2 yrs ago and hasnt been a problem since.
Any idea on what this may be. Its more of a "sound" than a vibration. Almost like something is spinning out of balance---but just SLIGHLY out of balance. The steering wheel does not shake or shimmy. It stops on a dime and does NOT pull left or right on a hard brake. The brake rotors are fairly new as well. IM out of thinks I know to check for and Im not going to roll the dice on bearings only to find THAT wasnt the issue.
have the same problem?
