My wife drives a 2010 Honda Odyssey. Yesterday she told me that last week it started making occasional sounds like metal scraping. I heard it today and it sounds like a chain dragging, or something going on in the wheel. The sound lasts for less than a minute, and is then gone. The sound changes pitch/frequency with speed. It only happens with the car in motion, and only after it’s been driving for awhile. It sounds like it’s coming from one of the left side wheels.
There are only 36,000 miles on the car. We live in Northern California where the climate is mild and there’s never salt on the road.
I’m wondering if this model has problems with wheel bearings, or something else. I’m hoping someone has heard of this before I take it in to my mechanic.
