I have wheel noise, best described as a whistling or higher pitched
grinding noise, that my 2007 Sonata makes. The noise occurs almost
exclusively when driving straight - when I make turns or apply the
brakes the noise goes away.
I took it into the dealer (6/12/08), they said they checked
everything, even test drove the car and didn't hear the noise (it does
sometimes take a bit of time while driving for the noise to kick in,
but the noise is there EVERYTIME I drive).
Again, the dealer says there is nothing wrong with brakes, tires,
suspension, etc. So I am not worried about safety, but the noise is
annoying and embarrassing. The dealer thinks it is the brakes getting
too hot and then making the noise. I honestly do not drive more than
28 miles round trip to work and back, so I cannot believe the brakes
get too hot.
Anyone have any ideas what it can be or what I can do? Is my dealer
full of you know what?
Thanks in advance.
