Sounds like it is a rear wheel bearing going bad.
Jack it up and spin each wheel separately to find which side it is

  • Jack and hold the spring on the strut OR hold part of the suspension close to the wheel...
    THE bad one will have a vibration. You dont need to spin them FAST to do this tes

Growling noise


Take it to a shop that can put it on a rack. Have the brakes and rear bearings inspected. Also have them look at the exhaust system. A growiling noise could indicate a leak before the muffler.

Growling at speeds above 25 miles an hour ,gets louder as the speed increases


sounds like a wheel bearing if you jack the car up so wheel is off ground and then hold the top and bottom of wheel and try to move it back and forth which ever wheel moves is the bad wheel bearing sometimes though it may not move in this case take it to a local mechanic for further inspection

I have a whirring or griding in my drivetrain. I can coast donw a hill and let the engine idle and I still get the noise. It doesn't sound any different going around corners and gets louder as the speed...


this sounds like(no pun intended) you have a wheel hub bearing assembly failing. they will start a whirring or humming noise and then a growling or grinding noise the worse they get. from your description it is a rotational noise and gets louder and maybe a higher pitch as the vehicle speed increases. have this checked out right away so no further damage is done. they are not cheap assemblies as most GM and Saturn vehicles have the ABS sensor built into them(if your Vue has ABS).

Low level growling noise at rt. front wheel increases with speed. No change if in or out of gear. Can start hearing noise begining about 38 mph. very slight vibration Car has 77,000 miles and is well...


first rotate the tires see if there is a change. If that does not have a desirable effect there may be a worn wheel bearing,take note if the sound or vibration gets louder as you turn a corner, try left turns as well as right turns if the noise increases it is a wheel bearing.

Hearing growling whine sound from passenger side front. Growling produces fast vibration (not shimmy). Sound increases on left hand turns. Sound more pronounced below 60 mph.


You need to replace your wheel bearing. Ford Escape bearings usually need changed around 80,000+ miles from my experience.
