Usually a front speed sensor/wheel hub going bad. is there a humming noise from the front end area while driving at highway speeds? If there is, try to isolate which side it is, and have that hub bearing replaced and make darn sure the axle nut is torqued to the proper spec, or it will fail. To many auto techs just tighten them up withan impact gun, and say its good.
the humming sounds like a wheel bearing problem cavaliers are notorious for the bearings going out i have changed many of them, i would change both front wheel bearings at the same time and not just one it will save you in the long run. hope this helped
if the front brake pads,rotor and more importantly the caliper were all installed correctly, this noise is probably a front hub bearing that is failing. they will start a humming noise and then a roaring/growling noise the worse they get. is the noise rotational? by that it will get louder and higher in pitch as you increase the vehicle speed. get it checked out right away to avoid possible further damage.
Watch out! You might have a loose wheel! Check those wheel nuts. If not, a loose brake caliper, or last if not least, a bad wheel bearing. Don't drive it until you find out what the heck is wrong! Could be dangerous.
possibly a wheel bearing or tyre noise from badly worn tyres
while driving in a straight line and noise is present change lanes or shimmy car left and right if noise gets worse or better wheel bearing problem
also if noise gets worse in normal town driving speed and gets less at higher freeway speeds check your wheel bearings
