Noticing loud whirring or humming sound from the rear side of the vehicle, only at speeds above 50-60mph. At lower speeds, I don’t hear anything. The driving style has not changed (yet) but the sound drives me mad. I had to drive for 3 hours yesterday and couldn’t wait to get out of the car.
The car (2015 Forester) has 30K on the odometer, mostly runs within the city. About 25% are highway miles.
Dr Google says, it could be wheel bearings, but doesn’t 30K sound very short run for bearings? Didn’t hit any potholes in recent weeks.
If it is wheel bearings of one wheel (mostly driver’s side rear), how much it should cost to replace? I tried to find this part but couldn’t find it on subaruparts com Rockauto has wide ranges but I would like to go with OEM.
Thanks in advance.
