I have a 2007 Civic LX automatic with 500 miles on it. Today I
noticed when I am driving between 1-5 mph I get a metallic scraping
sound coming from the front somewhere. There is nothing dragging and
it only happens when moving forward at a very low speed. I am taking
it to the dealership to have it looked at soon but I am wondering what
it could be and if I should be worried about driving it?
My previous car, an 03 Civic, had ABS and I never had anything similar
to this. It does not happen when I apply the brake and it mostly
happens at very low speed and occassionally it will happen for half a
second while driving at higher speeds (around 65-70 mph).
This sound is similar to dragging a shovel down a concrete road. It
is a very irritating sound that gets worse when I make a turn, but
only at speeds less than 10-15 mph.
I am taking it in tomorrow.
I don't think ABS would have made noise like that, at least not
Keep us posted on what the mechanic gonna say.
