Question about 2008 Saturn Outlook
I get this front end grinding noise and have felt the car shutter when turning going up hill or down hill. I have mentioned this to saturn on three occasions and they can never find a problem or the make the car reproduce the noise. This is very concerning to me because i'm afraid it's going to cause me to get into an accident when I have my children in the car. It feels like the tire is rubbing into the fender. Does anyone have a answer or have the same problem?
Hi there Nannymel,
You didn't mention whether or not the grinding is constant, if it increases tempo when you accelerate?
Or if when you brake, the noise changes.
There are a few things this might be.
The most likely is a wheel bearing going out.
]The most serious would be indicative of a potential brake problem. And that is nothing you want to put off or have done by an amateur.
To be on the safe side, have your brakes looked at by a qualified mechanic / brake specialist.
As for the other possibilities:
A vehicle that does not go is inconvenient.
A vehicle that does not stop is dangerous.
Have the brakes checked first. Get back to me with the results, we can take it from there if necessary.
