I just bought a 2004 Buick Rendezvous with 84,000 miles. I got it checked out, mechanic said it was ok. I’m getting ready to drive across the country with it, towing all my things in a small trailer.
I’ve noticed an unusual noise recently though, that I don’t know how to diagnose.
After the Buick is parked for the night, when I put it in drive, somewhere within the first 30 feet of rolling, there is a scraping car under the car. It sounds like the bottom of the car is scraping on something for just a second or two, and I can feel the vibration translate down the gas pedal.
I don’t think it’s sticking brakes or anything like that. It only makes this noise after it’s been parked for a while. Not after a red light, or if I’m just running into the store for a minute. It does seem to be happening more frequently though.
Any help is appreciated!
