Phate Posted January 9, 2017 Share Posted January 9, 2017 A little while ago I noticed the car would make some less-than happy noises under hard acceleration. It only seems to happen if the tires are just barely spinning, like what would happen if you floor it while making a slight turn. From the driver's seat, I usually notice the sound coming from the passenger-front wheel area if I'm making a right turn under power, but it also did the same thing in the rear while accelerating in the snow. It doesn't seem like a wheel bearing/trans/brake noise, since it only does it under pretty much full power, and only at low enough speeds where a tire will break loose slightly and fight for grip. Under normal driving conditions, the car is completely fine. Also it doesn't make the noise at all if the tires are spinning a lot, like they would be if you were sliding around in the snow. I'll know in a couple of days if the car makes the same noise with my winter tires fitted, or if it goes away. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
